    Yeah... their sister station WFIE in Evansville used a cheap knockoff of those graphics around the same time.

    hey I'm in need to finding a video about khj. the video used to be about how khj became kcal with "probably" its last newscast before the switch (which also included the promo kcal used back in the early 90s). does anyone still have that video, or is the video considered lost?

    ITN celebrates 50 years of News at Ten - one of my all-time favorite programs.


    Special original closing theme


    Recorded by yours truly in elementary school - w/Alastair Burnet and Alastair Stewart


    By the way, that interview with Trevor McDonald features cameos from some ITN greats - Sandy Gall, John Suchet, Carol Barnes and Michael Nicholson.

    I recently came across some rare footage from WCYB-TV in the form of a news break. This aired in 1979 and the news break begins at 0:33 with Alan Byrne. An ID is seen at 3:03. Talk about the rarest footage I have seen. Here's hoping we see some more Tri-Cities news footage from this period soon.

    Any KCBD or KLBK, even IDs and promos, from 1983 is similarly rare:

    Nothing makes me happy like a hearing a classic. Dan Dean's KOMO News 4 theme especially the promo at the beginning of clip. All I wanted to hear is the full theme rather than just a NMSA sample. If anyone, ANYONE has it, please...dm if you can. I had an interaction a while back who has the KOMO and KING cds from Dan Dean. I asked him to send the mp3 files to no avail. I'll probably try again. Man, didn't Fisher's KOMO had soul or what? (Case can made same for Bullett/Belo's KING)

    I think that's Bob Mayer's channel, personally. But yeah, there have been some great items posted there lately.

    Wow, the writing of the news stories... It's like a newspaper on television. Also, the story count could be said to be very high!

    This was taken from KOTV in Tulsa during its "KOTV 6 News" era. A couple highlights include a promo for Clayton Vaughn and Karen Carlsen (at 23:55), a weather bulletin at 11:35, and a Ragu commercial at 41:12 voiced by Doug Paul.

    YouTuber munecojim has a lot of Guiding Light episodes from KOTV on his channel, besides this one.
