    The entire 1993-95 Sky branding package, covering all their channels, was done by Gari, so this is a real "Great News II"... Here's a compilation.

    From one Sunrise to another, we move to Australia and Seven Network's Sunrise from 2002, when it was still a straight news program:

    Here is some classic KTHI "News 11" from 1987. The clip features a news close after a segment called "The Mel Stone Report". They used Tuesday's "All We Are, We Are For You".

    Back on an Albany tangent, here’s a look at CBS 6 News from the mid 2000s. Don’t know when this was but it had to be early 2006 as Greg Floyd is now at the anchor desk. He replaced Joe Pags around December 2005. Also when did CBS 6 drop Charlie Van Dyke?

    Charlie Van Dyke was phased out in mid-2007. The exact date for this would be September 6, 2006 judging by the top story being the "first day of school" (two days after Labor Day in New York). This would be the day after they expanded the 6:00 back to an hour in fact.

    Image wise, the rough period of 1998-2008 were a great time for WRGB with four good theme/graphic combos going from InSink to the first version of Impact. That package getting destroyed by going HD hurt it a ton and the package that replaced it was so bad the Sinclair package was an improvement.

    "A Big Name, A Big Commitment": it's what you'll get from WAGA's TV-5 Eyewitness News Update in 1981!



    And it was "Something Special" on WLEX 18 News in 1991:



    Didn't know WHBF used the "flying TV screens" package:



    It had to have been adopted late in 1995 or early 1996, because WHBF used The Hour and those pink and blue slab graphics (which admittedly were dated for 1995) a year before:

    Those WHBF opens were uploaded by Ken Gullette,
    That was two days before I started kindergarten!!

    Also those graphics were the second time CBS 6 snatched images from WBBM - the short-lived “News In Focus” Package was taken from their “Works For You” era, which itself was already gone by the time WRGB adopted it. The 2000 graphics used during the Enforcer days were also taken from WBBM’s sister station WBZ.

    Albany TV seems to take graphics and imaging from larger-market stations (WTEN using the 1990 KCBS open and then using the WJBK/WMTW/WDRB open for 11 years, along with the aforementioned WRGB images) and WNYT using KMOV’s “Flying TV screens” Package as well as the “Squares” Package (which may have started at WDSU??)

    I know that "flying screens" package was also used at WMUR and WLWT, in addition to the two mention there. Anybody know who created those?

    As for the "squares", are those the ones used by KTVI and KSTW at different points, or is that something else?

    The squares, yes. Those two stations used them too.

    As for the flying screens, I believe they were made by EGAD. WNYT debuted them in 1994 when they added a 5 pm newscast and they were the first graphics package with their current “News Channel 13” logo.

    My guess is that KTVI might have originated the squares package.

    Speaking of WNYT, here are some WTOG commercials taken from around the time that the station was in the process of being sold to Viacom, and Hubbard was acquiring WNYT and WHEC in return. All I can say is, Scott Chapin and PSA’s galore!
