    Now that we have KSNT (though with painfully wrong music), so begins the search for one of my holy grails: the rest of the Hatch look of the mid-80s, with Welch graphics and set and potentially Peters music. Where shall I find it first, Salt Lake City or Wichita?

    The problem with Wichita is that the eras are scattered - KAKE has plenty from the 80s while KWCH has plenty from the 90s. As for KSNW, it’s the same as KAKE, yet the annoying part is that their 1986 newscast has no music on the open.

    KUTV of course has nothing at all, typical Salt Lake City. Peters, I think, wasn’t responsible for their mid 80s theme, but KUTV’s 1979 theme sounds a bit more like their work.

    Hate to bump this thread, but what was that graphics company in question? And what was their website?

    It was Electronic Graphics and Design of Dallas (which I know did WVIT). Not much exists of them these days even in print materials.

    And this video has a couple examples; WEAR being ripped off by WTVY (both in this video) and WJHG thinking it's in Baltimore...

    Raymie,

    I would love to have some of the old WTVY footage you shared. WTVY has lost a lot of the historical files for some reason.John Williams passed away in 2011 and I know his family would love to see more. Thanks again for sharing.

    You would be better served contacting @compubit who uploaded the original clip. He may not have much.

    Not to go too far off tangent, but what's more annoying is the only other stuff that that I have from KSNW from that period is on a tape that rewound off the reel and I just haven't had a moment to get it fixed. It's most of the same elements that have been uploaded, in either SP or LP quality. Not too much new, but still, it's more than was there before.

    For me, the big one I'm trying to track down is KWCH's "The Look of a Leader" era stuff, especially when it comes to newscasts and similar shows. The few things I have uploaded on YouTube are all that I have so far so I'm not sure if some of the stuff I've heard on other tapes I have is part of it or is just production music.

    Heartlands WFFT updated their news and weather logo while keeping the old nexstar package. Now know as FoX55, they have the o&o logo while mocking the Tribune logo transition


    In the close, you can see the new weather logo. Tell me, where did they get the idea for that logo? ;);)

    Oh good grief, that's bad. In more ways than one.

    It appears WNEM has gone back to using knockoffs of other graphics packages. This time, the CBS O&O 2016 graphics.
