  1. EyeOnTV's back; among his additions, this, the first real artifact of the 1988 affiliate switch in Knoxville. The only video related to this event up until now was...this. Now, at the end of this parable, there was implication that WBIR had made a big mistake ending their long-standing partnership with CBS in order to hook up with NBC, now coated in that Cosby luster. It wasn't a mistake, though; WBIR would eventually become one the country's most dominant stations.
  2. Behind the scenes at Thames News. Going in, you might expect something special, even whimsical, in the news gathering process at the legendary Thames Television in London. If that's the case, prepare to be disappointed; Thames made news exactly the same way as, say, WSAZ or KFVS did here, stateside. I guess that's supposed to be expected; no point in reinventing the wheel.
  3. Vimeo actually... [MEDIA=vimeo]10329074[/MEDIA]
  4. Maybe "WSB 1992 News Theme" would be a more appropriate name.
  5. Now, here's something you'll really like. A WTVT news hour from 1980, with "co-anchor for a day" then-Governor Bob Graham. He did O.K., in my opinion, just not what I'd call "big market material". Becoming a senator was a much better career move. Also, look for long, long-time NYC reporter Lou Young. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=EvFEmxiTogw
  6. You heard the countdown; it's over. http://www.adweek.com/tvspy/nexstar-closes-on-media-general-buy/184319
  7. Give us a MILFy weekend anchor and Stormy, the Weather Schnauzer; and you got yourself a deal.
  8. News themes hopping within the same market isn't unprecedented. WLOS had Counterpoint for a while; but when they replaced it, WSPA picked it up not too long after.
  9. Maybe ABC was threatening to move to WKYT. A similar move was about to happen in Louisville.
  10. Has anybody really given the KPRC 1984 Theme a good listen? It really sounds a lot like Telesound, doesn't it? http://www.southernmedia-nmsa.com/#3,1,524
  11. That promo song is definitely Jake Holmes, someone much better known for commercial jingles.
  12. I know; that's just what it sounded like to me. Shelly Palmer didn't really have a distinct sound the way most news music composers do. PNP sounded nothing like Brave New World, which sounded nothing like Millennium 3. WTLV's 1988 package could certainly be "The Works", but the same could be said for WTLV's 1991 theme. Another news music mystery.
  13. Sounds like a remix of Symphony from Stephen Arnold.
  14. The pre-show bumper music sounds an awful lot like the music from these WFSB promos; which were presumably by Klein&.
  15. Some WINK stuff from 1985; know what I mean, Vern?
  16. KXTV 1984 Promos (featuring the KXTV 1986 Theme).
  17. Former WDAF anchor Cynthia Smith talks wistfully of her days there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=2gwtKCPGBK8
  18. Wow. I never knew WCAU had the lottery drawings.
  19. You could be forgiven if you thought this was a Canadian open. No channel numbers, just a title.
  20. Longtime Seattle sports anchor Tony Ventrella is running for Congress. http://www.teamventrella.com
  21. Scripps is making another aquisition: Cracked.com. I can't wait for The Now to be replaced with the daily Shut-Ups. http://variety.com/2016/digital/news/e-w-scripps-buys-cracked-demand-media-humor-1201751426/
  22. All big three networks represented, and don't forget KOVR and KSNW (I think KUTV had it, too).
  23. Something from 1983 about some archaic football game, complete with a WTSP open from 1983. WTSP 1985 Christmas tape.
