    I've always wanted to know, who is that voiceover that has done VOs for stations such as WHO-TV, KWWL, and WQAD?





    One thing I do know, he must be Iowa-based. He also has done other non-Iowa stations like KTVB and KLAS.

    His first VO appearance was KFVS, I believe. I've been searching for years.

    He hasn't done VO work in years and could no longer be with us.

    A We're the Team promo set...for WRC, the original client!





    Another WRC promo, this time from 1980... "We Can't Wait to Show You!" (You can hear how this tagline was worked into the We're the Team promos.)



    And the highest-quality cut you'll get of WRC 1986:



    Did WMAQ ever use this?

    And there it is, the proof for the hypothesis I had after the Tuesday KNBC pack turned out to be unrelated to NewsCenter II...they were, after all, the earliest users of the theme (if you go by the NMSA anyway).

    This has got to be the cheesiest campaign I've heard in a long while...probably a good reason we've never seen any off-air recordings of it in use. Yeesh.

    Yes they did, and even earlier than the description says:



    That animation was a bit ahead of its time, to be sure (a stark contrast to the minimalist approach WMAQ would take a few years later).

    KAMC update in 1985. What's this theme? Graphics elsewhere included some materials also used by WFAA.

    We take you way back to 1979 where we feature a rare look at KKTV in Colorado Springs. This is way before KKTV was acquired by Gray Television when it bought most of Benedek's stations.

    This clip you are about to see comes from a KKTV program entitled "Mid Day". It was anchored by Liz Paul. The theme used in the open is unknown. Anyone willing to chime in and take a guess?

    Shazam recognizes it as Tom Scott & The LA Express - Looking Out For Number 7... It was originally released in 1972 and got re-recorded in 1977.

    Also here is David Carroll before going to rival channel 3.

    With the solar eclipse taking place in 13 days from now, we take you back to 1984 where WAGA brings you a special edition of "Eyewitness News". It is a newscast complete with a news open. The news open animation reminds me of how WBNS did their intro at the time. The news intro can be seen at 3:41 and believe me, it is rare.

    I love those "The Team 4 News" promos. So, so cheesy. And I like cheese. Here's the original one:

    That WAGA open is a treat. Definitely the same shop that did the WBNS and KMID opens.
