  1. Yep, today marks the 22nd anniversary of the tragic events that took place on September 11th, which continue to evoke deep emotions within us. Undoubtedly, this was the pivotal day that changed our lives forever.
  2. Introducing the latest addition to the ATVB Archives YouTube Channel, the 1991 10pm newscast from KMGH Denver, previously affiliated with CBS but now with ABC. This particular broadcast was delayed 50 minutes due to the CBS Sports broadcast of the 1991 World Series, which went on longer.
  3. Heard this song past the 5:03 mark, the 13:44 mark, the open at the 14:29 mark, and the 28:42 mark Is it a piece of production music, or part of the Michael Randall's NewsCenter package that NBC12 was using at the time?
  4. According to the Nielsen website (CLICK HERE), the majority of us Americans are streaming MORE than watching OTA and Cable TV. Most people aren't coming home to watch the local newscasts on TV. People get their news online. Gone are the days of local newscasts at convenient viewing times. How are local stations getting with the times? I tried finding local stations to stream live on my ROKU TV but no luck there. I do know that Paramount+ not only lets me stream CBS shows, but there's a way to watch my local CBS affiliate LIVE with commercials with my subscription. On the Peacock streaming service, I discovered that for $10 more a month, I could stream my local NBC affiliate LIVE.
  5. KYW has the colors of Philadelphia Eagles KDKA has the colors of the Steelers WBBM with the Bears colors Looks like the CBS is having its O&Os try NFL team color schemes. Got a feeling that KCNC will be on the list, and they'll be using Broncos-colored CBS graphics for KCNC
  6. How about bringing back that classic Group W 3 logo?
  7. At KYW Philadelphia - RIP Eyewitness News! The birth station of the format that became widespread across America (including four other CBS O&Os that are former Group W stations) gave up EWN, and now, CBS News Philadelphia is taking its place. This is the second time KYW ditched the Eyewitness News name. The first time was from 1991 until 1998. After a seven-year ditch, KYW brought it back, only to be dumped again this year 25 years later. Probably the LAST CBS O&O and former Group W/Westinghouse station to dump the EWN brand.
  8. WLFI Channel 53 - aka Chattanooga CW - aired roller derby If the CW's upcoming sports division is gonna get some national presence, how about throwing roller derby into the mix, as well as WNFC women's tackle football? Instead of that LIV golf, which could create some backlash from what I've read so far. Those two are neglected sports that (a) don't get much television exposure as in live games like the NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA and (b) never get any highlights during the sports segment on the local news. Make those two sports a part of CW SPORTS
  9. Not too long, WSB's Newsroom became what is known as ACTION NEWS, which it still is today. As for the Newsroom branding, after a two-year hiatus, it moved to WXIA when it became 11ALIVE, which is also still is today. 1976 was the year WXIA resurrected the Newsroom branding to become 11 Alive Newsroom.
  10. Wouldn't be too long until Channel 13 became WNYT and an NBC affiliate. As for CBS, it went to where NBC used to be, which was WRGB channel 6. It was a swaparoony. Moreover, that news theme was Good Company by deWolfe Music, which was also heard on KPRC Houston during its Big 2 News days.
  11. Past the 1:45 mark, you get to see the closing of NewsWatch 4 from Denver's KOA-TV (now KCNC) from 1980. The news theme package was TuesdayG from Tuesday Productions. Wasn't too long before NewsWatch4 was rebranded as NewsCenter4 later that year.
  12. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm one of the majority of folks that stream an awful lot. I watch very little broadcast TV. I stream my favorite CBS shows on Paramount Plus. I stream some ABC shows on Hulu too. However, I do long for the days of old-school TV news. Where I'm educated and informed without a lot of sensationalism, partisan politics and negativity. I wonder how many local stations are adapting to the idea of streaming local newscasts, where everybody can watch the news at their own convenience.
  13. Looking at the drone footage again, that beautiful drone shot flying away from the red 13 transmitting tower (with the Houston skyline in the background) would make a great ABC13 news close. All KTRK has to do is throw in the copyright tag in the lower 3rd, and they have themselves a news close.
  14. KTRK's former theme pre-Cool Hand Luke played in the background, as the ABC13 drone flies around the studios and offices. Must be in honor of Jim Gardner's retirement from KTRK's longtime sister station 6ABC WPVI in Philly.
  15. Fast forward 40 years later. What has changed in TV news, other than technology, HD broadcasting, or the fact that some anchors have bubbly personalities with opinions (example, Kyle Clark of NBC 9NEWS KUSA in Denver)?
  16. I was looking at out-of-country news clips, and I noticed something from Australian TV stations. TEN Eyewitness News had State Bank on their chopper, while Seven National News had National Australia Bank on their chopper. I wonder if those two banks were sponsoring each network's aerial news coverage. Flying billboard if you will. If that's the case, that idea could work in America local stations. A bank funding the chopper for a local station, and in exchange, having the bank's logo somewhere on the chopper with the station logo on it. Plus, announcing that the aerial coverage sponsored by X Bank, so that the station can provide their bank more business. Either a bank, a real estate chain, or even a grocery store sponsoring a station's helicopter coverage. Example, KCAL 9's helicopter with the Albertson's grocery stores logo on it
  17. When BREAKING NEWS was meaningful and meant something...where the world changes forever. It broke into regular programming. It made the world stand still. Made you drop what you were doing and pay attention. Shocked the sh--t out of you. JFK assassination in 1963 was one of those Breaking News stories where the world changed forever, along with several others: 1986 Challenger Explosion, Sept 11 attacks on World Trade Center in 2001, near assassination of President Reagan in March 1981.
  18. But there IS PROOF that the customized NBC News graphics and animation was used on WALA (now a FOX affiliate)
  19. More of Andrew Ball's take on the old-skool ABC O&O News Opens (KABC and WABC)
  20. An awesome discovery that KOA-TV Denver (now KCNC) has used Move Closer to Your World. Yep, that long-running Philadelphia news theme has invaded the Mile High City back in the 70s. Now, if only we could find proof of Channel 4 Denver using MCTYW in action. A news open, a promo, anything
  21. Plus, in favor of news theme music containing the This is CBS music logo, it looks and sounds like the longtime I Love Chicago, Chicago My Home signature is slowly and gradually sailing off into the sunset
  22. Or how about roller derby and women's tackle football as part of CW SPORTS?
  23. Taking us viewers back to KCNC's NBC O&O days. Think about it. First at 4 reminding us of First News with Larry Green and other co-anchors. A full hour of news at 6 different from news at 5pm with Bob Palmer. Plus, with the 6pm news still running at 6:30pm, that makes us think of Colorado Evening News with Bill Stuart and Reynelda Muse.
  24. DIG that graphics package! Wonder what that package will look like on KCNC Denver, as well as other CBS O&Os.
