  1. I think it's important to point out Vimeo is designed for film & video industry professionals, filmmakers, etc. to showcase their work/portfolios. it wouldn't surprise me at all if they pulled such content from their platform.
  2. Beginning of a WVEC weekend 6pm newscast from June 1988, the lead story being the implosion of the First American Bank building in Downtown Norfolk Weather forecasts from legendary Tidewater forecasters Andy Roberts (WTKR) and Joe Foulkes (WVEC) from 1986 and 1988, respectively
  3. From Charlotte... full WSOC-produced 10pm newscast on WCCB in 1994
  4. These may just be spec concepts. The individual who uploaded these is a freelance graphic designer. And this is me pulling things apart, but I've taken note to the towns listed in the background. Bethesda, Carpenter, and Feltonville are small unincorporated communities that likely wouldn't be recognized. Fayetteville, Chapel Hill, Wilson, and Goldsboro would definitely be in there before those. "Garner" is misspelled in the background; it says "Gamer". It's almost as if the designer looked at Google Maps and gathered up town names with no rhyme or reason.
  5. This KWTV theme reeks of VTS now that I'm hearing more of it. @TServo2049 do you have any info on this one?
  6. Longtime anchor Nicole Boone retired from her full-time position at WBTW this week. She will return on occasion as a special events anchor. https://www.wbtw.com/thank-you-nicole/thank-you-nicole-the-farewell-speech/
  7. Neither Matt or Ann will be included. They were both absent from the Studio 1A 25th anniversary celebration last year. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/tv/2019/06/20/today-excludes-matt-lauer-ann-curry-25th-anniversary-video/1518135001/
  8. Bumping this thread... here's KOIN's version of the series. I'm listening to this all the way through, and I'm almost positive the vocalist on the second track, In the Beginning, is none other than 1990s country star Pam Tillis. It's very well possible because these were recorded in Nashville not long before her breakout album, Put Yourself in My Place was released in January 1991.
  9. KLAS news from 1989. Not sure what news theme this is. There are a few other Las Vegas newscasts on this channel.
  10. I'm trying to identify a theme that isn't on the NMSA... yet. It's the music WBTW was using in 1985. I think it's a production track. It sounds a bit like Network Music, but I can't find anything from their albums on the Universal site. It was used in the opens too. Listen at the 1:14 mark https://www.wbtw.com/news13-digital-first/news13-turns-65-a-look-back-at-the-station-and-the-stories-its-told/
  11. WSLS news brief from 1987 using Hello News
  12. Finally found some more WNCT from the last "NewsCenter 9" era... the station had recently been purchased by Media General at this point. No newscast, but here's a promo with Allan Hoffman:
  13. Former WVEC and WTKR anchor Jane Gardner has passed away after numerous battles with cancer.
  14. Related to WBTV... they appeared to have an “On Your Side” campaign during the PNP era; an instrumental is heard during this sign-off/sign-on message: Shelly Palmer has done station image songs in the past, but this doesn’t sound like Palmer to me.
  15. I have a "good feeling" the 'WRAL 1982 News Theme' & image is by JAM Productions. The female vocalist in the above promo sounds like the same one as in this promo for WVRN in Richmond, "It's a Good Feeling to Know" which was made for WJZ by JAM Productions and is paired to their The News Leader music package. Is anyone able to back this up with more evidence? The WRAL theme and song is giving me strong JAM vibes.
  16. I posted this a while back but glad you enjoyed it! I was excited to come across it because there wasn't a whole lot of the "It's Time for TV-3" look online. The same tape also has most of the 5pm news on it (the beginning was taped over with WTKR from 1999... appears they used the tape to record soaps and they let it run). This gives you a look at the franchise opens, etc.
  17. No surprise there... KIEM looked roughly the same in 1996 as it did in 2009.
  18. Coincidentally, Ed Carter passed away this morning at the age of 81 due to complications from COVID-19. https://www.wistv.com/2020/04/28/former-wis-anchor-ed-carter-dies/
  19. WKFT (Fayetteville, NC) commercials from 1992 including this WKFT Newsbrief anchored by Joyce Ohajah, who would end up as a presenter for ITV in the UK. WKFT ended its news department in 1989, but began hourly news updates like this one in 1991 using the same news theme from the former newscast.
  20. WTKR 50th anniversary retrospective (2000)
  21. After a 10 1/2-year absence, weekend morning newscasts return to WTKR on Saturday, April 4th.
  22. WNCT’s 6pm newscast from July 1, 1991!
