    Two updates and a promo of the final incarnation of El repórter Esso, that Canal 9 aired Monday through Sunday at 11:55pm between 1995 and 1997, anchored by Dardo López.

    A KRDO open from 2007:


    These graphics would eventually take a 180-degree turn for better the following year.

    Edit: it appears that video is misdated, but I DID find this:

    WAGA newscast from January 31, 1999 (well it starts there and flows into the beginning of February 1) featuring coverage of the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl XXXIII loss to the Denver Broncos. Worth noting is this also marked the debut of WAGA's new set.


    Also on the KTVK promos, nice to finally get to see the video clip of their "Count on Us" image campaign.

    I screen-recorded them off of these NewsActive3 compilations:



    Also I’m not done with Colorado Springs yet:

    This aired 2005? 2006? Definitely was their last package using Broadcast News.

    I just hope you hate the really bad ones like everyone else.....

    Clips of the LA TV channels after the Northridge Earthquake (the first 14 min are from a camcorder recording a portable TV):


    Believe it or not, this is my 300th post on this site!

    A three-part series on the early days of KPAX (1975-88). The station signed on in '75 but didn't begin any local production until two years later, starting up inserts in the MTN News then fed from Great Falls. A full-on local newscast from Missoula was introduced in 1986:

    I’m now on Jacksonville!

    Keep in mind I am possibly not going to update the WJXT opens though or any existing news open compilations from other channels, but I will be doing existing TV markets that don’t have any compilations.

    Also after Jacksonville I’ll be doing Cincinnati. And yes, JPMcFly1985 has some WLWT open compilations on YouTube, but I’ll be adding the ones post-2000.

    That WJKS one is pretty darn good-- I think it's one of the few times (maybe the only time) I've heard the Cool Hand Luke/NS2000 music on a then-NBC station!

    Not sure if this was posted anywhere else in the forums...

    KIRO-TV, 1985, an Eyewitness News promo from the "News Specialists" campaign. The music (believed to be by Klein&) has evolved, and is now accompanied by an orchestra, giving it a more lush and bolder sound.

    KTVI must’ve used the Chris Crane pack for a year I guess, cause we now have the first version of its Eyewitness News open.

    I've never understood why they dumped the awesome Chris Crane music for Gari's EWN-- the Crane package would've really fit in given that they had just switched to Fox, but instead they chose to go with a package designed for ABC affiliates, which they weren't one of anymore. Doesn't make any frickin' sense.

    I agree. I even though the Crane pack was used WITH this package until I saw this.

    More from that same station too:


    Btw if I do plan on updating existing news open compilations KTVI will definitely be on that list, and so will WRTV and all the Cleveland stations.

    And, another clip. This time from a June 1997 edition of its 11:00 a.m. newscast, from after the switch to the "Fox 2" moniker.

    The transition from "Area 10 Eyewitness News" to "The Daily News" at WAVY took place in 1981. Here's an aircheck of highlights of the last weeknight Area 10 Eyewitness News:
