  1. That they were on KNBC in the City of Angels then-- that said, here's a late edition from 10/14/88 where John Beard is in with Kelly (Keith must have been off for some reason): And the morning edition (Today in L.A.) from 10/13/88 (headline is the Dodgers' defeat of the Mets to advance to that legendary 1988 World Series [legendary owing to what would eventually be Kirk Gibson's famous 2-run homer off Dennis Eckersley]):

  2. AirchiveSloan is a legend! So is the KNBC jazzy close. Those bumper cuts are legendary as well. Awesome work here! This made my day. The 4pm and 5pm news is also on his site as well. Love how "anchor heavy" LA was at the time. Different teams for all shows....John/Linda 4pm, Colleen (still there at 5pm) and Jess at 5, Keith/Kelly at 6pm and Keith/Kelly at 11pm. The good ol days.

  4. I suppose so. I guess Turner allows them to use the March Madness music for conference tourneys on CBS/CBSSN because those conference tourneys ultimately lead into CBS/Turner's March Madness coverage.

  5. The flag looks good, I don’t guess WJZY will be getting them now that the sale has gone through? Unless they were already promised them with the graphics.

  7. So sad to hear, but not surprised. Their gfx with Aerial made one of the best combos in the 2010s.

  10. Philly has a second studio. Dunno why they didn't build a set for CBSN in there. They haven't used that space since they stopped doing the "Einstein Science" segments last year.

  11. I'm watching CBSN Philly, and it's very interesting that they don't have a separate studio set up (as of yet) just for CBSN. I also get that Philadelphia is pretty dense when it comes to finding new studio space. However, I think it would be wise enough to invest in studio space. Some CBSN Philly observations: 2 Anchor set during AM's- Burrell & Donovan CBSN Live 7-9AM, loops 10AM-12Noon than CBS Eyewitness News Live at 12Noon. Also to add CBSN Philly and Pittsburgh are using regular O&O graphics for their broadcasts. One has to notice will an update to the CBSN

  12. Several staff at WVUE are out of commission after an attendee of the NICAR journalism conference in New Orleans, who visited their studios, tested presumptive positive for coronavirus. The station has sent home employees believed to be in close contact with the attendee.

  13. That's going to be a hard sell because It's been a while since the FCC approved a brand new full-power TV station. And I don't think its going to happen in the near term, as stations are still in the process of repacking after the spectrum auction. And anyway, Gray didn't really need another full power TV station. They already have full power KVLY, and those three LPs (KXJB, etc.). If that deal would've went through, they probably would've moved one of those other networks (CBS or CW) over to the new FP. ______________________________ New M&A. John

  14. I'm glad Sinclair is continuing to allow WLUK to be autonomous with the news music. The gfx and Aerial actually make a great combo.

  15. LMAD has already wrapped production for this season. Price is still in production, so if they take any action, I would guess they'd stop taping indefinitely and go into reruns.

  17. Airchive on a roll...KNBC 6pm 1988 - at the end a nice hit of the jazzy sax 1985 close. By this newscast the 1985 bumpers had been retired for a synth version of NewsCenter II

  18. In the latest series of AirchiveSloan's collection... Did anyone ask for a nice, clean, clear, long cut of Gari's On Your Side from KTTV in 1988?? Here you go!!

  19. That was also after the title of the daily show lost the day-of-the-week modifiers that it had under Schieffer, and started simply to be called Morning.

  20. One of the best things about Sunday Morning in the '80s: the thoughtful, literate, sometimes almost poetic media commentaries by Ron Powers. Here's one from 1987 about the televised suicide of Budd Dwyer:

  21. Also my source at NBC Arthouse just told me about the new graphics "NECN Was just the start, the NECN package won't be the new look coming this Summer. But , we have a huge surprise. The recent font refresh was just a tease. Also the new animated real weather icons was just a refresh. There will be new weather icons and new flatter graphics coming soon for the NBC O&O's" And then he told me to look at this website https://thisiselevation.com/necn And told to note " With only about a month and a half to do this, we began by examining a look started by Arthouse, the "NBC own

  22. here's a retrospective narrated by Pat Harvey aired at last night's 8pm news. Are you ready for this though, a real treat: CBS LA uploaded thru YT the last ever signoff of KHJ at 12am Dec 2 1989, transition to KCAL with the much clearer, ever catchy 'california 9' jingle promo. It starts at :38 tho (lord, could they have edited out cleanly at start, please) but enjoy... BTW, here's a report from Dec '89 when KHJ became KCAL after Disney's purchase. And a pre-launch of Prime 9 News in 1990. Apparently, music is based off 615 mu

  23. Sometime shortly before the latest elections in Israel, KAN 11 underwent a significant update to its news program. They debuted an updated music theme (which I must say is very good). The open titles begins at 2:02. They also updated their graphics, which basically keeps the general concept of the old graphics but this update makes it look a lot more immersive. And last but not least, they also built a new studio. At first glance it might appear somewhat similar to the old studio, but they actually have a real newsroom as the backdrop (instead of a simulated newsroom) and the set design i

  24. Part 26,626 of "does the theme song matter?" A remix was played as part of warm-ups to the Flyers/Blue Jackets game on Tuesday, 2/18... It was noticed on Twitter and more. Other coverage: https://www.inquirer.com/flyers/flyers-6abc-action-news-theme-song-jim-gardner-move-closer-to-your-world-20200219.html I guess that is one way to get some free coverage outside the sports block...

  26. The assimilation has gone full speed ahead despite an uncertain future for TEGNA at this moment. My guess is that all of their remaining stations will have the uniform look before the end of April.
