    The 30:44 mark of that video also shows Mort Crim during his relatively brief run at WBBM.

    He must’ve been replaced by Harry Porterfield eventually, as Mort went to WDIV to replace Wes Sarginson in 1978-early 1979.

    Not quite... Mort came to 'BBM as insurance because someone wanted Kurtis. Mort was to become the new #1. But Kurtis stayed and Mort was plugged into Harry Porterfield's weekday spot. Which moved harry to the weekends....
    Crim, tired of waiting for Kurtis to leave, went to Motown shortly after Post Newsweek took over Detroit's Channel 4.

    Porterfield was reinstated at 6 after Crim's exit. Another demotion to weekends in 1985 to make room for Kurtis' return didn't go as smoothly.

    And then he got replaced by Lester Holt... God knows where he ended up, at the Peacock.

    Here’s a look at a WRC newscast in 1990:

    Hi, my name is Ryan. I have been lurking around this site for a while. Always good to see the posts on the Classic Video Thread.

    Here's my first contribution, something very rare: segments of NewsWatch circa 1978 on Kanlaon Broadcasting System (KBS) in the Philippines (later RPN, today known on-air as CNN Philippines), presented by Ramon Imperial (no open or anything else, unfortunately).
