    1978: From a Chicago broadcast, a GMA weather update with John Coleman, with a promo from fill-in anchors Jim McKay (ABC Sports) and Joan Lunden (WABC), before her tenure as host.

    Don't think this goodie from WPLG has been posted yet-1986 open with the unknown theme:



    This needs to be in a permanent archive! A perfect Ernie Anderson voiceover:



    Take a look at this slogan-does the unknown theme having something to do with "We're with You"-an ABC tie-in maybe?

    He seemed to be a secondary voice to Ed Hopkins throughout the 90s. I seem to recall him on a few more promos.

    A bonus: The Upstate Ford Dealers ad at 1:02 is voiced by longtime WRGB anchor Ernie Tetrault.

    I've watched this video several times and I always thought it was Brandon Brooks, currently of KYW radio. Both were there around the same timeframe and seemed a bit similar in terms of presentation and looks. That said, WTAJ in 1986 with the aforementioned Brandon Brooks, at 1:25 teasing some high school basketball highlights some guy named Rodger Wyland would have.



    What I would give for a pre-summer 1986 WTAJ weekend newscast to surface. Not only did Wyland do sports at that time but their weekend anchor was another name familiar to Albany viewers: Phil Bayly.

    These graphics look so incredibly Media General but Wikipedia says they were owned by Cordillera at the time. Even the “6” looks exactly like WTVQ’s old logo.

    Your eyes aren't deceiving you...KIVI had a knockoff of the MG look of the time.

    He must’ve been short-lived, as by the summer of 1992 Danny Dark began doing the open VO’s.

    Also why is Jim Tilmon doing 10PM weather and not John Coleman? Maybe he replaced him for a short time before Brant Miller took over, but I’m no Chicago news geek.

    And what job did Brandon Brooks have at WNYT for how long? I’d assume he was a reporter.

    Coleman left in 1990. Room in was the most frequent lead weatherman through the 90's, but was demoted a couple times, including when they picked up Andy Avalos after he left WLS. Brant really wasn't elevated til late in the decade. The weather team saw a lot of instability after Coleman left, much like how the sports department was directionless for 10-20 years after Giangreco jumped ship.

    Morning and noon anchor from September 1990 to May 1993, this Schenectady Gazette blurb on his departure will give some insight. His departure cleared the way for John Gray to take the anchor desk in mornings and for Benita Zahn to return to it at noon.

    In the spirit of this thread, a Live at Noon segment from November 4, 1991 with Brandon Brooks and assorted reptiles and one of the few cases of footage of their secondary set of the period.
