    Btw, that is a great satellite speed for '92 (no delay)! And, man, I loved that set!


    This is a short clip - and one of mine - but it shows just how stunning that set was.

    Here's a 15th anniversary of WLTV 23 which aired in 1986.

    As your weekend is about to come to an end, here are some rare clips I am sharing with all of you.

    We start in 1977 where WOAY-4 in Beckley, West Virginia had just signed back on the air after a devastating fire hit the station. Here are a few video clips of WOAY's news from that year. At 2:16 into the video, it includes an ID with newscast open.



    The audio is very low, but you get to see a vintage KFVS newscast from 1989 featuring a different open used during that period. News open with ID can be seen at 0:33.



    Here is a WSAZ news close from 1977 with NBC Nightly News intro. WSAZ used "Part of Your Life" at the time.

    The WOAY material on that channel is incredible.

    There's one other great clip: their first sign-on after the fire. They got interim equipment on air primarily to transmit network programs. Like, literally, ID slide until 8:00!

    I was the original poster of that material. I have back-ups of the main 'goodies,' such as the news opens. I just re-posted a few of them on my brother's account.

    Here's a promo from WUHQ (now WOTV) in Battle Creek, MI circa 1988. WUHQ era videos of WOTV are seemingly rare. I've only seen about 2 other videos (a very brief DX clip in one of FuzzyMemoriesTV's video from 1979/1980 and a signoff)

    I remember visiting my Grandparents in Western Michigan and WUHQ had a customized version of ABC's Still the One - We're Forty-One...

    Wish I had recordings - but "Why would anyone want to record TV?"...

    WOC in 1985...



    WANE in 1986... (This "latter-day" version of the CBS News ticker was also used by WLTX)



    WPTV in 1993... (Of note: if you like European TV DX, or news opens from elsewhere, this channel is for YOU!)

    No open, but there are few rarer histories than ANYTHING channel 31 Sacramento... The year is 1995, so the calls were already KPWB. We don't even have a theme for this one. This is a huge find!

    This 10 minutes of video includes more KPWB - a weathercast and a bump, with what must have been their theme:



    They must have overhauled in 1996 as they became "Action News 31". There's evidence they used News Edge in the morning (which lasted into KMAX). There's even a partial news open at 3:24.

    Open is absolutely using News Edge - KAYU used the same cut around 2004.

    This may just be the longest clip ever posted here. Mostly KTVI, but some KMOV, KSDK and even a bit of also-rare KPLR...

    (Note: 6 hours!)

    @Raymie
    To add on to my own post - I submitted this to Mr. NMSA, and he thinks it's most likely from the Underground Collection of production music...a very strange coincidence, but one that makes sense (Arnold apparently let clients have at it in there if they picked up a package).
