  1. Here are a few minutes of a newscast that aired over WKPT-TV in Kingsport, TN back in 1989.
  2. Thank you for sharing this one. I asked Retrosyde Archive, the person who uploaded this, and says that they have some local newscasts they'll be uploading. It's good that you shared this one, because I remember Rick Benjamin and Lori Tucker being on WATE at the time.
  3. Here are some commercials and a newscast segment as aired on WMTV in Madison, WI during Valentine's Day 1985. Take note of two different themes that WMTV used for its opens - the first open seen at 5:32 uses a cut from "Hello News" while the second open at 13:33 uses an unknown news theme.
  4. I want to say what a great announcer Dick Ervasti was at FOX Sports. Every time I would watch a hockey game or a football game on FOX, Dick's intros would get you ready for the game itself. In fact, the way he done his intros was unique, innovative and interesting.
  5. One of the things I love about YouTube is that you can encounter newscasts that you've never seen before. Well, what I am going to share with you is a rare newscast from WYFF-TV in Greenville, South Carolina. This newscast aired back in 1984, and features news anchors Carl Clark (formerly of KHQ-TV in Spokane, Washington) and Kim Brattain. You can go to 1:49 and view the news open using an open cut from Gari's classic "Hello News" music package.
  6. It's good that you mentioned this, because the Greystone Mansion one of the best historical places I've ever seen. As a matter of fact, I came there for a tour a few short years ago and I even got to check out their news set that they had at the time.
  7. Back in the late 1970s, stations like KSAT in San Antonio, TX and WPLG in Miami, FL used Klein&'s "The One & Only" music package. Well, did you know that Guam Cable TV used that theme for its newscasts? We take you back to 1990 where Guam Cable TV used Klein&'s "The One & Only" to introduce their local news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2qkhktd8Q (You can view the open at 2:04:27)
  8. And the open they used reminds me of how WFSB in Hartford, CT opened their newscasts back in the 1990s.
  9. The announcer isn't no Chris Parnell, but sounds like an announcer who has been in broadcasting for a long time. The announcer doing the WSST news open is Lee Wright who, if I am not mistaken, is still at the station and even hosts a music video program which airs on the station.
  10. We take you back to 1990 when Mid State Television, Inc., the owners of W50BE (now WOHZ-CD), launched a news operation. It was known as "The Evening Journal." Here is the very first newscast they did as "TV50 Mansfield."
  11. Here is another version which looks nicer than the one you shared.
  12. I remember him from his time with CBS when he did color commentary for their NBA games. He will certainly be missed by everyone in the NBA community.
  13. TServo2049, I came across these links on a Facebook group called Radio Jingles and Airchecks which you can check out at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/. In fact, The link to the original post concerning the Peters Productions VIdeo Sound Track audio can be seen at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/permalink/2793500540931791/ while the original post for the KUTV 2 Together Peters package can also be seen at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1571170363164821/permalink/2793618074253371/.
  14. I also wonder that too. Anyway, this leads me to a question: Do you think that Peters Productions may have composed WTVD's 1979 news theme? I ask this question, because I am going to share a video that contains the entire WTVD newscast where they broadcasted from another room due to a fire on their news set. You can listen to the closing theme at 28:36.
  15. I came up with the composer of the KUTV 1979 news theme. It was Peters Productions and you can go to https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZ10FpXZvpW4utLhTHSO1S34fpMSJpuznd6y&fbclid=IwAR0t088Cf65HT_H4t0uzeB6iXGP99fC-dUJp01IZJHgv5x6XW-LxVq87PJg to listen to the entire package. And I identified the composer, because of the news theme they play at 3:50. And that's not all, if you go to https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZ72JpXZ2LzrBscemU4NL9plQHE9gSKfQcxV&fbclid=IwAR1a1fUAvrtkSMT6_lJeA0NDpjJi8lwjp6Tkw2troPtRlfbkE4VZx3pkgv8, at the beginning, you'll hear WNGE's 1979 news them
