    KXAS had them by April 1987, but by then they were in use elsewhere (WJKS, WHTM). I do not think KXAS debuted them until the new NBC peacock was rolled out.

    There is a lean toward NBC affiliates in the roster, but not totally.

    Ah, Release of Energy...one of my favorite tracks from KPM (especially with all the synthy sound effects presumably added for TVQ).

    KHOU in 1991, during their first year of the "11 News" branding. RIP Doug Paul.

    WFLD opening in 1993, with a 1940s newsreel-esque dramatic orchestra in the background and a very messy and busy-looking early 90s looking intro.

    Walter Jacobson's first year at WFLD, according to the description. I don't think either of the music choices that they used suited a 9pm news broadcast, even in 1993.

    A quick KTVB ID from 1999 shows them using Broadcast News...but I'm linking the whole thing because of a very certain production track in the commercial preceding it.



    This part also provides more of a look at the jcbD graphics of the time:

    Did Blacker's become Mor Furniture for Less or something, or at least did they use the same production company? The whole ad screams Mor to me (including VO). Mor had a tendency at one point to use Network Music and actually directly contributed to one ID of a piece of music! (That would be Dominant Force. Hearing it in a Mor commercial actually sparked me finding it. It helped that I already knew it was a production track by its appearance in a Rick Santorum presidential ad.)

    KSAT in 1994 -- who in the heck would make a news open this creepy? Apparently whoever was channel 12's general manager at the time.

    Besides the creepy synth wind noises that sound straight out of some cheap VHS horror movie, I love the dramatic talent introductions.

    20/20's report on local news, anchors and consultants (1982), and at the end, a snippet of WCVB's 6PM news from May 1981, when Natalie and Chet had their daughter.

    A taste of something different: KGMB in 1999. The news theme debuted two years earlier and was written by Audy Kimura. The graphics at least that accompanied this theme lasted into 2001.
