  1. Same music and VO from what WTVF used for a very brief period before their switch to "Spirit of Texas"
  2. Hidden in plain sight on YouTube for a year... here's a glimpse of a 1975 news open from KVUE
  3. You're on the right track... I've heard that its WFNZ (sports) that will eventually make the switch to 107.9
  4. Skip ahead towards the end for some cuts of "News People" that probably haven't been heard in ages!
  5. In a bit of a surprise, WXLV is going to re-start a newscast on January 18. I believe this will be produced out of South Bend with local reporters in the Triad. The station has made some headway in the ratings thanks to Dr. Phil and Family Feud, but they'll have a long way to go if they want to compete. WFMY, WXII and WGHP are all very competitive, with WXII leading the pack.
  6. A complete WTVF newscast from 1980... shortened to 20 minutes due to CBS' coverage of the Democratic Convention.
  7. KWTV 1979 partial newscast, with an interesting use of the "Tuesday1" theme for the open. The rest of the theme was used in bumpers.
  8. You buried the lead... that’s “Streets Of...” heard on somewhere other than KYW!
  9. 1. No doubt that it's a tremendous upgrade. 2. That surprised me as well. They made changes here and there throughout the years but it was largely the same set for nearly 20 years. I'm thinking it debuted the morning of the attacks, I can't imagine rolling it out at night. 3.
  10. Even further than that... it debuted on 9/11. Here's the story on the new set... just unveiled on the noon newscast: https://www.wxii12.com/article/winston-salem-north-carolina-wxii-coronavirus-anchor-set/33300403# And here's the promotional video:
  11. A couple of 1987 commercial reels from my home market, The Piedmont Triad. WXII (using the WXII News Package) WFMY (using the WFMY 1986 News Theme)
  12. Late-70's video from West Palm Beach:
  13. 1977 WPTZ Eyewitness News Open (with a funky theme!)
  14. Oh no, I meant WBMG. There are a few opens from the Oprah era at WJZ on the Internet Archive with Pulsar in it.
  15. I think the songs in the beginning and end of that clip are a different song, perhaps the WBMG News Theme of the 1970’s? I don’t think they used Pulsar in any form.
