    Ah. Before moving to big leagues at NBC, making history in the process until her tragic death in 1983.

    She wouldn't be the only one seen in this newscast to pick up a network gig soon afterwards, as Charles Bierbauer would soon move to the big leagues at ABC and eventually CNN.

    Saw this a weeks ago and forgot to post. I think it's maybe around 1998, as Mark Baden didn't join 12 until 1997
    On a Milwaukee-related note, I am starting to believe that WTMJ didn't switch to Impact until they updated the graphics package "with the ring L3" logo in 1996, as seen here:


    Unless they switched in December

    as the KING 1992 theme and first gen jcBD look were still active in November (which the former I believe I also am starting to believe Wow and Flutter composed it, and the 1999 theme KING had.)
    I am actually in a Broadcast Animation class at MATC, which is teached by the head Graphics Supervisor for many years at TMJ, His demo and channel features some of his work at TMJ here:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tq-xC46foiI (1988 special)
    A bit anxious to ask him about it, even though I had thoughts in my mind about it. I told him a little about my TV News hobby through in my class.

    Here is the first few minutes of KOTA's Newsline from 1987.



    I recently found this out. KOTA's Newsline theme was also used for its "Battle of the Video Games" tournament special on KTLA four years before in 1983.

    It's almost certainly from a production library then. Maybe it's in KPM's LP set?

    It was. Originally aired in April of 1983, many stations aired it at various times of the years.

    Note his surprisingly ornery farewell speech beginning at the 25:27 mark.

    I'm still trying to find the Broadcast News-era open, it was in a NewsActive3 compilation a long time ago but I haven't found it since.

    Ask and ye shall receive at 26:45.

    They also (apparently) had another open possibly during 1993/94, basically with Broadcast News but with the 1994 “6”:
