  1. Those L3 graphics were straight out of the 80s! And mid 80s at that.
  2. Some good WCBD and ABC content from 1986. Includes a couple WCBD promos, at the start, 11:45 and 19:00 plus an ABC news brief.
  3. Part of a WSAV newscast (including open) from 1981. Gary Miller (of CNN and ESPN fame) was the sportscaster.
  4. Even Charleston, not a top 100 market at the time, had all 3 stations running morning news from 1996 on. The CBS (WCSC) started theirs in the mid 1980s. NBC WCIV started in the early 90s, then WCBD was the last to start around 1995 or 1996.
  5. That’s some really rare stuff. Only 7 months before Hurricane Hugo hit Charleston. Also weird not to see Bill Sharpe. I guess he only did the 6:30pm news at the time. Mike Hiott later hosted the noon show “Midday”, then went to WCIV before he retired about 15 years ago.
  6. Yep, WTOC had that package. I remember being in Hilton Head in 2002 and they had a updated package. Still had the same set from like 1995-2005.
  7. WTOC open from 1997 with NewsChannel. And a weekend talent open from the same station included in this report. Two WIS-TV opens from 1990 (weekday and weekend). End of vid includes credit roll
  8. A WCBD promo tease from 2007 is included in this show (at 7:10): And a CTV News Calgary open from 2008.
  9. A WTOC high school football highlights show from 1991. Includes some interesting promos and commercials. WTOC (CBS) also had Wheel and Jeopardy at the time, before they moved to WJCL (ABC). Now they are on WSAV (NBC). There can’t be many markets where those shows were on all of the Big Three stations at one time or another.
  10. Charleston during Hurricane Hugo was like that. They had one AM station (690 from Jacksonville) stay on the air. 680 from Raleigh also stayed on, along with WBT Charlotte on 1110. At the height of the storm, every local station (and there were probably 15 or so at the time) was off the air.
  11. WCSC”s site from February 2000. They were the last station to start a site even though they are the leader in the area. WCIV’s dates back to 1996 with a local provider called “A World of Difference.” WCBD’s website in March 2001. All of the links still work!
  12. Big jump for MB/Florence moving into the top 100. I wonder if they added a county or two.
  13. All 3 stations in Charleston went straight through today with coverage. No late afternoon local news except at 7 and 7:30 pm. Fox here (WTAT, Sinclair) NEVER carries their special reports. Their Charlotte O&O carries all of them.
  14. Given that market is already huge with them being the stations all the way from Jacksonville, to Rocky Mount, to the Outer Banks, they have trouble covering it normally, let alone when there is a hurricane going on.
  15. WCSC here in Charleston is simulcasting coverage from WECT in Wilmington, one of their sister Raycom stations. A split screen with their weather map on one half of the screen, the WECT coverage on the other.
