  1. 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/
  2. 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/
  3. 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.
  4. KLAS news from 1989. Not sure what news theme this is. There are a few other Las Vegas newscasts on this channel.
  5. 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/
  6. WSLS news brief from 1987 using Hello News
  7. 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:
  8. Former WVEC and WTKR anchor Jane Gardner has passed away after numerous battles with cancer.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. No surprise there... KIEM looked roughly the same in 1996 as it did in 2009.
  13. 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/
  14. 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.
  15. WTKR 50th anniversary retrospective (2000)
  16. After a 10 1/2-year absence, weekend morning newscasts return to WTKR on Saturday, April 4th.
  17. WNCT’s 6pm newscast from July 1, 1991!
  18. Sounds fine to me. Not as weird as every station that picked up Wall to Wall News in the 2000s
  19. WVEC report on the Virginia General Assembly's failure to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment on February 13, 1980. Includes the last few seconds of the open using the ABC World News Tonight synthesizer theme. Virginia finally ratified the ERA today - 40 years later.
  20. TVARK is back online: https://www.tvark.org/?page=644 It appears this user is Bandicam-ing their stuff and re-uploading to Youtube. Not cool, bro. What do you use to capture 60fps? I would love to transition to this for my uploads at some point.
  21. WECT is about to go Gray. They are using the Gray ticker this morning.
  22. This is imminent in today’s media landscape. TV stations are transforming into local digital media companies.
  23. Bumping this... WWAY debuted the new Morris package today.
