  1. A few newscast airchecks I uncovered from Eastern NC. WNCT 11pm newscast from 2001 WCTI 11pm newscast, 2004 The latter half of a WNCT newscast from 2004, weeks away from switching over to the Media General 'crescent' graphics & Wall to Wall News. While the main set was getting a refresh, they were on the Fox 8/14 set temporarily with modifications... I think I figured out the reason for the odd handcuffs background. They were doing a heavy crime-focused series at the time, "Crime and Punishment" as mentioned by Marti Skold at the end of the broadcast.
  2. WWAY commercials and news open from November 1995. Similar intro to the one WILX had at the time which was loosely based off of KGO.
  3. About friggin time. WSET was using the former WJLA set from 1995 that was handed down to them in 2001, with few changes since. And that set replaced another hand-me-down from WJLA (the ca. 1989 set that went to WSET in 1997)
  4. Commercials and promos during WBTW’s morning news ca. February 1997. Sure wish more of the news broadcast was uploaded!
  5. KYW 11pm newscast with Larry Kane, July 18, 1994
  6. Lisa Schaffner, former longtime anchor for WRIC, has passed away at 59. https://twitter.com/8news/status/1428698966091259907
  7. RARE short-lived WBTV 11pm news open from October 24, 1998, a matter of days before the debut of the 'busty 3' logo.
  8. In the 90s? It's STILL being used by car dealers I've heard some dealership in Florence or Conway, SC using it on radio spots in the past couple years
  9. First 15 minutes of WVEC’s “Good Morning” news program with John Miller and Karen Jones from April 9, 1996 (date on title is incorrect)
  10. WRAZ news promos and open from 2000
  11. Negative for Van Nuys on VO. Pretty sure it’s a local guy, but don’t know who it is.
  12. WVEC 11pm news open ca. 1985 or 1986. Likely one of the earliest opens with Turn To because Len Randolph is featured.
  13. Another to add... LoConte Goldman. Work includes the original Hearst package in 1995 and WTKR's 1994 "TV-3 News" look.
  14. Turns out these are the new graphics!
  15. First half of WAVY’s 11pm news, 5/7/92
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. From Charlotte... full WSOC-produced 10pm newscast on WCCB in 1994
  19. 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.
  20. This KWTV theme reeks of VTS now that I'm hearing more of it. @TServo2049 do you have any info on this one?
  21. 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/
  22. 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/
  23. 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.
