    He said so in the description. That doesn't mean you can't do your own take, although take note it appears that there are multiple versions of the same exact open (with no variancies in stock imagery and/or voiceover) in some cases in DMA37dude's compilation, so anyone else's version may require some sort of clip sorting to reduce redundancy with another clip in the same compilation.

    The Raleigh playlist continues...

    Is it just me or does Bill Leslie look A LOT like Austin anchor Ron Oliviera?

    What I wonder is why, in one of those WTVD openings, the main anchors are mentioned by name, but weather and sports are referred to generically (meaning that there are weather and sports segments, but the people on those are not mentioned)?

    KNBC, Los Angeles; 11 p.m., 1974 (go to 3:57 if not taken there automatically):



    This theme is listed by NMSA as a close-only theme -- but here it's used for the open.

    Thus creating one of the biggest "what could have beens" in the history of network television news; as CBS was reportedly planning to add her to the 60 Minutes team in 1973 (as it was, the first black member of the 60 Minutes team would be when Ed Bradley took the spot vacated when Dan Rather was promoted to CBS Evening News anchor; while 3 years later Diane Sawyer would be the first woman to be a correspondent for the series).

    Also among the dead in that crash were Illinois Congressman George Collins and Dorothy Hunt (wife of E. Howard of the then-brewing Watergate scandal; reportedly carrying about $10,000 in hush money)

    IMO, Don Harris looks more like the late, great Chip Moody of WFAA.

    A WTEN report on the band C. Jane Run from around their first stint using Primetime News (this is definitely NOT 2001.)

    Also at this point I won’t be taking requests anymore - not that I did anyway. No offense but I find it to be too stressful and i already have a list of areas going anyways. @T.L. Hughes I’m sure they did that on your videos too when you were doing compilations...

    I am also actually at the very bottom of my current list already, so after finishing up Shreveport (yes I’m going there) and a few others, I’ll be back to rummaging through NewsActive3’s mounds of compilations.

    A few more KETK items:

    More of the slower-mix KMOL theme stuff, including a couple closes, as well as bloopers and some bumps: (cued to the close)



    Pieces of a sweeps series on how KETK's "Region 56 News" was produced. The first one, a promo for the set, includes a small snippet of the open that was being used:

    From the same channel that brought you the rare 1991 WNYT clip on St. Patrick’s Day comes a “NewsCenter 6:30” segment from that same day two years later:


    Btw how long was Marty Aarons at WRGB? A Reddit post made a joke about how he “didn’t even last 42 weeks replacing a guy that lasted 42 years (Ernie Tetrault),” meaning he wasn’t there long.

    Also, a newspaper article @scrabbleship shared with me on this thread a few months ago said Ernie retired on May 27, so possibly Marty was brought in to replace him.

    Anyways, thanks to YouTube channel wpdehistory, I was able to make this:

    He was still there at least very early into 1994, as this open proves:
