  1. And the open they used reminds me of how WFSB in Hartford, CT opened their newscasts back in the 1990s.
  2. 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.
  3. 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."
  4. Here is another version which looks nicer than the one you shared.
  5. 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.
  6. 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/.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Here are some classic WSVN newscasts featuring TM Productions' "All The News": In the late 1970s, Bakersfield, California's channel 17 (now KGET) became KPWR-TV and adopted a new nickname for the station. The station would be known as "K-Power, The New 17" and with it, 5 million watts of power. Here is a CBS "We're Comin' On" promo as aired n KPWR-TV.
  10. While looking around on YouTube via their mobile app, I came across a rare KERO 23 News noon broadcast from the mid 1980s. It includes a news open with an unknown theme. Also included is a blooper reel with news open at the beginning.
  11. I am watching it right now and the newscast is amazing. What I love about the newscast is the presentation as well as the stories. I will say that NewsNation is going to do great things, and I am interested in seeing how NewsNation will do in the days and months ahead.
  12. Here is a video including the new open. NOTE: WPRI is using the Nexstar FOX package.
  13. What you are about to see is a video containing reports done by Joe Collum who reported on the county commission in Tampa. Throughout the video, you can see some WTVT opens starting with an 11pm news open at the beginning, a Pulse 13 First News open at 8:06 and a 6pm news open at 12:34. And we take you back to the mid 1980s where WYMT in Hazard, KY used this news theme until the mid 1990s.
  14. KSLA and KHOU in 1984. The KSLA ID/10pm news open can be seen at :44.
  15. 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.
