  1. Sister stations WGN in Chicago and WXIN in Indianapolis link up for a Super Bowl bet, 2007:
  2. TV Live's page dedicated to the new, hour-long 5 News in the UK: https://tv-live.co.uk/tv-news/5-news/5-news-2021/
  3. The new, hour-long 5 News in the UK:
  4. By the way, was the KMOX's 10 p.m. news the only edition to use De Wolfe's Fact Action? I'm curious because NMSA has the station using Marx's WBBM theme between 1976 and 1986.
  5. Salut Bonjour on Canada's TVA has a new look:
  6. KMOX, St. Louis; 1981 (the Newsroom era):
  7. Elizabeth Vargas anchors a news tease on Chicago's WBBM, 1993:
  8. Here's the mid-1990s version of the open, still using Energy (poor video quality):
  9. KCOP, Los Angeles; 10 p.m., 1984:
  10. A rare promo for KTTV in Los Angeles from the Metromedia News era:
  11. From 1982, presumably the launch edition of the "new 10pm Report" on WCCO in the Twin Cities:
  12. In 1997, KNXV used "Live, Local, Late-Breaking," as its slogan, while its competitor KPHO opted for a completely different approach -- "Local, Live, Late-Breaking." Who says that consultant-driven local news is beholden to formulas?
  13. WBBM, Chicago; 6 p.m., 1985 (the Arlington Racetrack fire is the top story):
  14. WNAC, Boston, 11 p.m. (rebroadcast), 1980:
  15. Plenty of interesting news footage in this six-minute look back at the history of WOTV (known earlier and later as WOOD) in Grand Rapids from 1984:
  16. On a related note, a 1987 commentary by media critic Ron Powers on the ethics of showing a person's death on television:
  17. During the 1994-5 affiliation switch in Phoenix, all of the four networks changed stations -- except NBC, which stayed on KPNX. Promos on KPNX emphasized the station's long-term connection to the network: The switch left KTVK without a network, KTVK became an independent and began to heavily promote its newly-forged relationship with CNN: Returning to KPNX, this promo features Willard Scott with Sean McLaughlin, then a meteorologist at KPNX, now an anchor at KPHO/KTVK:
  18. Speaking of KPIX and Signature, I've always thought that this particular preshow tease was simply perfect -- great music, great writing, and great anchoring (but horrible picture quality):
  19. Here's a tribute to Bohrman (sorry for my earlier misspelling of his name) aired on KPIX in 2018:
  20. WFLD, Chicago; 9 p.m., 1991 -- with a newly heard theme or just a different cut from the Tatgenhorst package?
  21. WTCN, Twin Cities, 10 p.m., 1979: The anchor, Stan Borman, is perhaps best known for playing a newscaster in The China Syndrome. I suppose this casting decision is one reason why the movie's portrayal of local TV news feels so real:
