  1. CBS promo/jingle compilation, 1973-2000 (first 1979 promo includes another title from the Bob Schieffer side of Morning [namely Monday Morning]; we've seen Tuesday Morning, Wednesday Morning, and Thursday Morning; Friday Morning is the only one left to find)
  2. Great point-- apparently they can go no lower; they're at rock bottom.
  3. If they do, and ratings tank because the news on WKBW is not what their viewers have come to know for all this time, then (IMO) they shouldn't play the victim and say "No one's tuning in-- we're sinking!", because this would have been a natural consequence, given what WKBW has been in and for and to Buffalo.
  4. I hope they don't pull an ABC here with what ABC did!
  5. Finally, we get to see (for the first time in a long time) what the 20/20 opening was like in the 1989-90 season, with the broadcast of Fri. Jan. 5, 1990 (I was oh so excited when I saw this after that long dry spell).
  6. I take it you think it was actually decent in the Clear Channel days, pre-Sinclair, and had a pretty good news product (I may be incorrect).
  7. 3:58 mark of this WOKR/WHAM (Channel 13, ABC Rochester, NY) omnibus-- "You're watching NewsSource 13 at 11, with Don Alhart, Ginny Ryan, chief meteorologist Bill Peterson, and Mike Catalana on sports. NewsSource 13-- more local news, more local experience." (Probably late-90s, owing to graphics and music; announcer's name is Lee Lively, per NMSA)
  8. And Bryant Gumbel makes his debut, 1/4/82 (this next Jan. 4 will mark 40 years):
  9. Even if it wasn't the only reason, it's still a very good one-- very informative response. I'll have to look up that bio-- seems very interesting.
  10. Why would this WMAQ Chicago 1967 late edition have a title that would make it seem like it was being shown directly on NBC, instead of on WMAQ (NBC News Night Report)?
  11. Indeed-- I think WJZ in Baltimore (CBS O&O in Charm City) made a bad mistake when they became just WJZ News (dropping the Eyewitness part).
  12. True-- he was only 29 then; he got his start quite early!
  13. KAMR Channel 4 (NBC Amarillo, TX): News 4 evening edition for Monday, Jan. 25, 1993, w/Mary Allison, Lynn Walker, Steve McCauley weather, and Steve Sain on sports
  14. That's a great question-- how would that play with other luminary stations of that family like 6ABC in Philly (WPVI) and ABC11 in the Triangle (WTVD)?
  15. I third it-- think about what it would have been like if the ABC logo change discussed here had been in one of ABC's movie broadcast openings of the 80s, like the Star Tunnel; how would that have played w/viewers of the time?
