  1. Not sure how many of you will care about this, but: The current version of the Action News opening theme premiered sometime between September 5, 1996 and October 19, 1996, likely right after the infamous orchestral version of the theme was scrapped.
  2. Cool theme! If that 1981 date is correct, then it seems that it was commissioned for KTXL first, not WRAL.
  3. Some nice archive.org 60 FPS transfers: KING 1/19/1990 news: https://archive.org/details/TheVistaGroup-1990SeattleKING5NewsBroadcastJan19 KSTW 1991 5:30 news: https://archive.org/details/TheVistaGroup-Early90sSeattleChannel11NewsBroadcast KVBC 2001 news: https://archive.org/details/TheVistaGroup-EarlyY2KLasVegasChannel3NewsBroadcast
  4. Wouldn't television's worst nightmare be someone under 50 (or ideally, under 35) who doesn't watch TV?
  5. No, they need to use this music instead: "Ladies and gentlemen, the name of the newscast is Go!"
  6. I've noticed that the CBS eye is more prominent than before; they've only started using it a few years ago. Portland tends to use call-letter branding rather than network branding for their stations, except for KPTV.
  7. Damn; this is a huge blow to the voiceover industry. KPTV has used him ever since they became a FOX affiliate in 2002.
  8. Because for the stations, it's 2 hours of that they don't have to program themselves, and enough stations have signed up to make it viable. What else are the stations going to show in primetime? The days of The 8:00 Movie are long gone...
  9. That's because the Texas 21 logo is shaped after a US Highway sign, not an Interstate sign.
  10. KPDX is being rebranded as "FOX 12 Plus", starting February 12th: http://www.kptv.com/story/37342202/kpdx-to-become-fox-12-plus
  11. KGW got the new graphics yesterday: http://www.kgw.com/news/local/kgw-gets-a-bolder-brighter-new-look/498097082
  12. KOIN 1994 11 PM with the 4-note version of Prime News: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYVX6gvm-AI
  13. I'm pretty surprised they're changing the 8 logo; that dates back to 1995.
  14. A big find: two WPVI Action News intros from 1972 with the original theme:
  15. KPDX's 10 PM edition of KOIN's "NewsRoom 6" from December 30, 1992: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKFrFiYxRe0 Is this one of the first examples of one station producing a newscast for another station?
