    WFSB’s always had some great station imaging over the years IMO.

    WISN Newsbrief from May 1985 with "WWL News". Looks like it was used from 1984-85:



    Anybody know who the voiceover is that WISN used in the late '70s-80s?

    That KVIA theme (aka KNTV 1986) is curious. Is that a Peters composition, maybe?

    Rare video of KHON’s morning news from 2003, back when they branded themselves as “Fox 2”:

    A mislabeled YouTube video. It says it's a 1990 newscast from WTAJ in Altoona. In reality it's a 6pm broadcast from the competition, WJAC in Johnstown:

    A string of WLOS reports from 1996-97 during their “Counterpoint” phase.

    Judging by their L3’s WLOS must’ve used an EQ Vance package. Paging @Ramona who I know can identify Vance packages...

    If only there were opens... I legit love the Greenville-Spartanburg market and want to do compilations for it, but there’s just not enough for me to dig through. Salt Lake City is in that rut along with Omaha.

    Yeah, I would say that's probably Vance, and if not him, maybe EGAD... It looks like they updated their L3s at some point (report #3).

    Looking at his site he had WHNS as a client though...

    Interesting... does EGAD have a client list anywhere?


    A KPTV open pops up at the end of this compilation, using similar GFX to sister station KTVX at the time. Really nicely done, I’d say. Who designed those?


    Going back even earlier to 1996 at the end of this video KPTV used an open from 1991 (maybe 1992?) and lasted it until ‘96.

    Wow, the 1996 open is jarring. The station had done a lot of modernizing in presentation but the news open was completely divorced from that.

    Given the look of it, whoever designed this KSTP open from 1994:



    KPTV was a very traditional station, even during the UPN days-- it wasn't until Meredith got their hands on it and turned it back into the Fox station that the local feeling was kinda drained out.
