    A treasure trove of 1998 WITI, all revolving around the retirement of John Drilling. Some observations: The "Newscenter" set is brand new here (weeks old), and the newsroom and weather office have yet to be renovated to match. There are also still human camera operators in the studio. Also a few clips of Molly Fay, now over at WTMJ doing the Morning Blend, and Scott Steele who is now suing WTMJ/Scripps. A few of these packages were crammed right at the end of the show, so there's a few seconds of the classic Magnum close music sprinkled throughout.

    "Until now"? It's been around since 2015 and it's only heard on the morning show. All other newscasts use the normal Enforcer cuts.

    Airchecks probably don't get much older than this!

    I give it a few months max (no more than a year) and "What's New" will be back to just a traditional 5pm newscast--as it should be. Literally not surprised at all. That was a joke of a "newscast" if I ever did see one.

    They should really change the color of the gray maps. There have been a few times where I've mistaken it for cloud cover.

    Seems like it would make more sense to have David and Liz handle Noon and 5pm, and Bill and Sade 4pm, 6pm, and 11pm. Or if Ken were to retake the noon, then David and Liz at 4pm and 6pm, and Bill and Sade at 5pm and 11pm.

    Crappy recording of a WISC weekend newscast in 1998 with the Star Trak theme. Would be nice if this person would digitize it (or send the tape to someone who can). Talent open at about 6:28.

    They've outdone themselves this year.

    What's coming up on The Big News tonight? KELO was in a time warp for much of the 80s, not that it showed in the ratings: KELO continued to use "The Big News" theme and name until 1990 (!):

    It looks like the 11pm show is being rebroadcast again, this time at midnight on the zombie LiveWell 6.2. Previous rebroadcasts included the 10pm hour for WPHL being rebroadcast at midnight on 17.2, and the long-running 2am "encore presentation as a service for our late-night viewers" on 6. Glad to see it back!
