    This isn't really a discovered news package composer...... more like a potentially discovered musical influence that shaped some themes. Have to wonder if this song released in July of 1983 influenced one the main themes of Gari's News Channel and a theme in Gilmer's Image IV package? I also remember a sound-alike version on one of the first Megatrax CD's! I always thought the inspiration came from Flashdance, not this dude. :D

    Start from the beginning and notice the 8 second mark. EDIT: just noticed the ending starting at 3:46 is also a dead giveaway and sounds close to the tag of News Channel.

    Might’ve been possible. This was released around the same time as KCNC’s call letter change (which stands for Colorado’s News Channel) and WSB commissioned the Gari package itself in ‘83...

    KOTA’s news theme pre-TVbD is a pretty questionable. @Ramona thinks this is a KPM one.

    I'm just taking a wild guess — it's definitely a library, but which one I have no clue. The Battle of the Video Games clip definitely means it was out by 1983.

    Easy one. It's VTS Productions' "Looking Out For You", as used by KFDA & KSWO in the late 80's/early 90s. The closing piece is an instrumental from their image campaign, as used by CFTO in 1984:

    This Phil Collins song "You Can't Hurry Love" (1983) reminds me of KCBS/WTEN's news theme from the early 1990s (because of some musical notes)
