  1. Check youtube channel "The Media Stash"...
  2. Transitioning to KD and You first generation, and also including long-time KD floor manager Victor Vrabel cuing you the viewer...
  3. I suspect that it was used by Peters to show off several full service image packages that they had created,* not unlike what TvBD did in several packages, ie "Love on A real Train by Tangerine Dream.. *Remember this was the audio track of a video cassette tape...
  4. In addition, at 4:34 in that second clip (Peters Productions Video Sound Track) is the primary Image theme/promo for WJKW/Cleveland "TV8-The Winners"
  5. Try about 22 years... That set goes back to when Freedom owned 'MT... It did make the transition to HD tho, while WOOD, 'XMI and 'ZZM all built HD specific news environments...
  6. Add WFSB (It appears the only Post-Newsweek station not to use this set was WPLG)...
  7. Not unusual for anyone who watched WISN/Milwaukee when they used this package... They used the cut used in this open as their newscast close.
  8. I seem to recall that this was the first Affiliate package CBS News offered to stations in the Dan Rather era... WJBK Detroit used it for Newscast bumps during their "2 is the One: NewsBreakers" era... Up I-75, WEYI Saginaw/Flint/Bay City also used this Affiliate package..
  9. WTVF NewsChannel5 would like a word...
  10. From the Jeff Heitz school of no BS truth telling journalism...
  11. Not to mention the pensions of folks like Bob Gregory and Don Hein in Indy, or Jerry Revish, Dave Kaylor, Andrea Camburn, or Fritz "the Night Owl" Perinboom in Columbus...
  12. That theme was "Scrap Yard" from Tangerine Dream and their soundtrack for the 1981 film "Thief"
  13. That was done on an April 1st edition of GrandStand. Twas an April Fools joke...
  14. Primarily because Tegna/Gannett rebuilt 'KYC from the years of malignant neglect by NBC....
  15. This must have been shortly after ABC/WXYZ lured Kelly away from 2 Storer Place (WJBK) to Broadcast House. (Kelly's co-anchor at 'JBK, Jac LeGoff joined the Magnificent 7 a couple of years later).
  16. In the midst of the strike, legendary WJR Radio morning man J P McCarthy died after a short aggressive illness, another Motown media legend, Free Press columnist Bob Talbert crossed the picket line to write the front page obit in the Freep, becoming a "scab" in the process. Talbert himself passed three or four years later.
  17. ' Tegna/Gannett has a habit of leaving the name on the license of stations they acquire, or occasionally transfer the license name to new members of the family (ie WZZM Grand Rapids, MI license name is Combined Communications Corporation of Oklahoma, which came from KOCO now Hearst.)
  18. Perhaps.... Most of the Post-Newsweek stations (WDIV/WJXT/WFSB) had a similar set, as did WTVF ....
  19. And before 'TAE he worked across town at KDKA w/ Bill Burns...
  20. "How will you know" was licensed to stations by Metromedia....I have never seen any of the MM stations use it, however I have seen the promos used by In addition to KOCO, fellow Gannett station KPNX, WPXI , WTVF, and WNDU.
  21. Like fellow former Big 8 CKLW 20/20 Newsman Randall Carslisle, who also anchored at KUTV.
  22. Not quite... Mort came to 'BBM as insurance because someone wanted Kurtis. Mort was to become the new #1. But Kurtis stayed and Mort was plugged into Harry Porterfield's weekday spot. Which moved harry to the weekends.... Crim, tired of waiting for Kurtis to leave, went to Motown shortly after Post Newsweek took over Detroit's Channel 4.
