  1. As I’m aware, all of phillyvideofan’s content is lost media as far as I know. I remember hearing years ago (from them?) that the source tapes were lost/destroyed and original files lost as well. It’s a shame because there were several videos on the channel special to me, in particular some WECT, WWAY & WBTW news clips from the early/mid 90s.
  2. WAVY 6pm news from August 1990. My first time seeing a 6pm open with Wall to Wall/The Team!
  3. I, too, thought the same thing... "A new set already? Seems like the old one just got finished!" But 6 years is a good run for the old set. Time's just moving faster, I suppose. It's about the average lifespan of most of WTKR's sets the past ~30 years 2016-2022 set 2000-2016 set (with numerous facelifts) 1995-2000 set 1992-1995 set (with a major rehaul in 1994)
  4. Sony as a whole seems to be one of the most strict about copyright. I had a commercial compilation with a 1997 Burger King commercial that used Foreigner’s “Urgent” that got blocked by Sony Music (no strikes). I think it’s become common knowledge that Jeopardy eps are a no-no on YouTube.
  5. 6:30am segment of WAVY News 10 Today from August 1994
  6. That logo was much better as a circle. Never liked the rectangle treatment all that much.
  7. A few finds for your viewing pleasure: WCBS noon open, June 14, 2000 KCBS 11pm open, September 10, 2002 KOMO 11pm, February 10, 1999
  8. I think I remember seeing/hearing this many years ago. From one of my tape finds, the national satellite feed of WNBC's version of "We're 4 New York"
  9. I’ve been looking for this WWAY era for a long time and finally found it! Commercial breaks and 11pm news open from December 1997, with Millennium 3 and graphics from jcbD
  10. The first few minutes of a WCBD 11pm newscast from April 1997, not long after the switch to the Media General 'clouds' look. Nice to have a copy of this that isn't potato quality!
  11. It appears the WLWC newscast faced the same fate as the WTKR-produced 10pm newscast on WGNT after being acquired by Paramount - they didn't want news on their O&O stations.
  12. No worries. I don’t think I have anything else from Columbia to upload, but I have a few mid-90s era clips from WCBD, WCIV, WTAT and WLOS to come.
  13. A one-of-a-kind find... a complete 1996 10pm newscast from WTAT, produced by WCSC
  14. Here’s a look at a WOLO newscast in 1999, using a ripoff of the Media General ‘clouds’ open of the time
  15. WTVD 11pm newscast, February 22, 1996 First few minutes of WECT's 11pm newscast, February 9, 1997
