    A very early edition of Good Morning America from 1975 (still featuring dual news anchors, among other things):

    A long closer for Canal 9's noon news from January 1996, anchored by Cristina Pérez (before moving to Telefe) and Guillermo Andino (before joining América 2).

    The guy who composed the theme (Luis Reales) was listed in the credits!

    That's November 14th. The program debuted almost two weeks earlier on November 3rd.

    Rare commercial clips from WITN in 1997:



    Includes promos for weathercaster Steve Hawley at 3:11 and sports with Trey Jones at 12:46.

    They were using that same "Business Break" graphic with Network Music's "Bright Expectations" since 'til I want to say, 2006, if not later.

    Recently found this WSOC open at 44:11 in this NewsActive3 compilation. It has the same graphics as KNTV’s open from the era (this is the Bob Perry open on the NMSA).

    The McMillen and Wife Steelers fansite has TONS of videos! (Pray the NFL doesn’t shut them down). If anyone wants to see vintage WIIC and WPXI clips there are many of them as WIIC/WPXI was the Steelers flagship TV station for many years as they locally televised all of their preseason games until 1998 with a short stint on WTAE from 1985-89. In fact I just watched a 1981 preseason game and at halftime they had an ad for their new 5:30 News with a young Roxanne Stein and then a news update with Midge Hill at the 29:00 mark.

    I'm more familiar with him as the voice of Showtime in the early 80s:

    Speaking of that, I just watched a 1984 Steelers game from December and saw a promo similar to KOCO’s “How will you know...” for Channel 11 News. And yes, they had that name in ‘84, but the logo hasn’t changed yet.

    Uploading that clip to my channel...

    Not having a logo in such a slickly produced promo suggests they were in transition. They did get a new ND around then, so it's not unthinkable.

    "How will you know" was licensed to stations by Metromedia....I have never seen any of the MM stations use it, however I have seen the promos used by In addition to KOCO, fellow Gannett station KPNX, WPXI ,
    WTVF, and WNDU.

    I’ve always been a fan of @T.L. Hughes’s news open compilations on YouTube and I thought I’d start doing them myself. To start I’ve filled in gaps for the Tulsa market with KTUL.

    Oh you should! T.L. Hughes hasn't uploaded a compilation in a longtime.

    Here's why I haven't uploaded news open compilations in the last two years. I used Wondershare Video Converter to edit and publish the videos; the application, however, was increasingly having audio/video syncing issues during the publishing process, which is why some of the later uploads and re-uploads had audio that was a few seconds off.

    My laptop's hard drive also crashed last December, and has been in the hands of a friend of a neighbor of mine (the latter of whom referred me to him to get it fixed) for repairs since then. Hopefully, I'll be able to get it back sometime this summer, and if a reinstalled Wondershare cooperates or I can find a similar video converter software that can sync video and audio properly, I'll add new compilation uploads to the YouTube channel.
