    I guess I should've expected it came from them, here is that theme in use at JLA from 1985:


    I wound assume WCIV must have used a similar open as well. Also worth noting is that WCIV back then used the same "On Your Side" logo that WJLA had back then.

    A short closer of Nuevediario in March 1997, with Claudio Rígoli and Osvaldo Granados. Mr Granados (on the left of your screen) was the station's business commentator/analyst, but he was promoted to main anchor when Guillermo Andino departed for América 2 earlier that year. When Nuevediario became 24 Horas in September 1997, he returned to his former commentary position.
    PS: I like the animation and the music theme!

    They were both owned by Allbritton Communications, so no surprise.

    And was that theme at WJLA by 1983? Wikipedia says they made the “7”’s edges sharper by ‘84, when that theme was in use. They also went through an... interesting image change in the 1984-87 period, which you can see in my compilation up there. They had the 1984 package with the ugly red set, a 1985 package with “So Good To Turn To” returning after a few years, returning to the 1984 pack by ‘86, and then ditching everything altogether by 1987.

    Alejandro Etchegorry anchoring Teledoce's evening newscast on Tuesday, August 12, 2003. He's joined at the desk by Laura Daners and Alberto Kesman.

    PS: the station used those Nightline-esque graphics and music theme for 16 years (1999-2015)

    This is a curious little ID from WLKY in 1986 with a sung "Looking Better All the Time" jingle:



    The musical signature *is* in the matching news package...

    There was also an accompanying image commercial that received a Silver Award in 1984 from the Broadcasters Promotion Association (a predecessor to PromaxBDA).

    Just looking at it now-- best opening so far is that one starting around the 3:30 or 3:31 mark for the late edition (NewsCenter 2 Nightcast), with an apparent stereo version of the opening music on that late edition.

    In memory of KUSI anchor David Davis. Killed in a car crash too soon. (Sadly couldn’t find a pre-2008 vid of him - how long was he at KUSI??)

    He must’ve been sports director between Stu Klitenic (who left to do weekend sports at WSB and later stuck in Atlanta to voice Braves games) and, Greg, er... PETE Peterson (which I’m sure was KTVI management wanting to jazz his name up to grab viewer’s attention).

    Almost 10 minutes of Nuevediario in 1993, with Guillermo Andino and Mabel Marchesini. The top story that night was an exclusive interview with one of Pablo Escobar Gaviria's nephews!


    (BONUS) The music theme, used between 1993 and 1995:
