    Why infamous?

    WMC in my opinion is the Memphis market’s only saving grace, I hate the rest of the stations... especially how crappy WHBQ was in the early 90s.


    WAGA signs off its broadcast day.

    Another full newscast from Ken Owen's (persumed) collection, this time it's WRTV's paid 10pm newscast on WTTV from February 28, 1994:


    BTW, does anyone really know for sure if that is Ken himself uploading the clips to TheClassicSports account?

    Not disagreeing. Just detected the “Friendly 5” signature in it. But Tuba and Trombone in G major was a pretty unique theme, to say the least.

    I decided to get back into doing Puerto Rico. This time, WAPA gets it's compilation, although I might need some help with having a recording or recordings of WAPA's current news open that isn't a second-hand recording.

    I love WEAR too. Their Hummingbird theme is still beautiful. I love any theme that is saxophone driven.

    Btw just looked on the internet archive and it appears there’s tons of Richmond VA stuff I skipped over - Probably cause my screen recorder audio doesn’t work when I play videos not from an app.

    And here is the late news replay that preceded the sign-off, which usually aired back then between 2:00 and 3:00am!

    Here's something for The ID Junkies KTVT compilation, it's most of the evening edition of KTVT's Metroplex News from Memorial Day 1979. Fun fact, these usually at the halfway mark of their 9pm movie!

    Hmm... KTVT will need an update, since it has nothing pre-1995. Thank you!

    Editing my WPMI one now. Later this week, I’ll be doing Salt Lake City. I’ve dug some stuff out for KUTV and I found this (Spoilers @Ramona it ain’t the 1984-1989 stuff):

    Loved the "Clearly Yours" era of Channel 3 and the seagull as part of the logo. I watched that station a lot as a kid in Pascagoula, Miss.

    Here's the tail-end of ABC's 1978 primetime election coverage, anchored by Frank Reynolds, followed by Fahey Flynn, Joel Daly, and the beginning of Eyewitness News at 10. Note the mention of the election of a new Arkansas governor, some young kid named Clinton. No word on what became of him. (WLS, 11/7/1980)

    Is that CBC's 1970s The National theme being used in WLS's election open (at 4:15)?

    Not quite...it's Ballet 'Homage to the Athletes,' Rock Movement from the '76 Summer Olympics, as used by the CTV National News (and several other American stations).

    Ah, now I remember seeing that on NMSA. I presume WLS never used it on any regularly scheduled newscasts?
