  1. KSLA and KHOU in 1984. The KSLA ID/10pm news open can be seen at :44.
  2. I recently got to see a WLKY newscast clip from April 1984 and if I am not mistaken, the WLKY news theme they used may have been done by the same composer who did the "9 Country/11 Country" package for WTCN/KBTV. You can go to 2:14 to hear the opening theme they used.
  3. WLKY in Louisville, Kentucky used a newsroom set during the late 1970s and the first part of the 1980s when the station was owned by Gannett.
  4. Here is another unidentified theme worth sharing: The closing theme to WLKY's "21 Alive News" from August 15th, 1986 You can listen to the theme at 6:20.
  5. You may be right. This was before WRAL started using that theme for its "Action News 5" broadcasts. As I was listening to the KTXL theme montage, I did notice a drum beat on the KTXL/WRAL theme on YouTube at 2:35. And then, I went over to SouthernMedia's News Search Archive and listen to TM Productions' NewsBeat which featured a drum beat at :12. This leads me to believe that a jingle company such as TM Productions may have had something to do with the theme. However, I may be wrong. (drum beat can be heard at 2:35) http://www.newsmusicsearcharchive.com/#3,1,300 (drum beat for "NewsBeat" can be heard at :12)
  6. Although the title is different, this video features clips from KDUH, KSTF and KOTA all recorded back in 1984 with news opens included. Here is an entire KDUH "Newsline" broadcast from Christmas Eve 1983. You can go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPGvbm9bqaWxxfXkeUwkIvw for this and other news clips.
  7. Thanks to YouTube user 'VPR2B', here is a montage of KTXL's classic news theme from 1981.
  8. You are in for a special treat, because YouTube user 'VPR2B' has uploaded the KTXL NewsPlus music package from 1981.
  9. These videos were posted 9 years ago on YouTube, but I am about to share these. First, we have a Guam Cable News broadcast from 1988 as anchored by Kurt Chaisson. The theme they used was "The One & Only" by Klein&. And also, we have a KGNS news open and clip from the 1980s. The theme they used was "Newscore" by VTS Productions. These videos were posted by Kurt Chaisson on his YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/user/kirk42107/videos.
  10. From 1-21-1983, here is a broadcast of ABC's World News Tonight. At 29:13, you get to see a WNGE ID with a news open featuring the late Ed Hopkins voicing the open.
  11. From 12-25-1978, here is an entire broadcast of the CBS Evening News. Be sure you watch at 28:47, because you get to see a WTVF news open using an unknown theme.
  12. From 12-26-1971, here is the entire broadcast of NBC's Sunday Night News. And at 28:53, you get to see the first moments of WSM-TV's "The Scene at 6" anchored by Al Voecks. The theme they used was "Ponteio" by Edu Lobo.
  13. From 1-15-1974, here is an ABC Evening News broadcast At 28:43, you get to see something rare: An ID jingle for WNGE along with the "Dateline Today: 5:30 Report" intro. And at 29:21, you get to see a short portion of a report done by future WAGA news anchor Jacque Maddox. You can go to https://www.rhsalum.org/alumni/jacque-maddox/ for a short bio on Jacque. Also....here is an entire New Jersey Nightly News broadcast from 1978 featuring former Los Angeles and Tulsa news anchor Clayton Vaughn.
  14. Here are three WABI news segments from 1988, all containing the opens: And...here are two WVII news segments from 1987 and 1988 respectively.
  15. If you go to https://www.youtube.com/user/davelexky, you can check out some rare WDBJ and WTVQ videos. And while you are there, you can check out some news stories and newscasts posted by former WTVQ and WDBJ anchor Dave Winters dated 1979 through 1981.
