  1. A few newscasts from what I call my "Fringe Edition" - Stations not based in the main area of the market (Huntington Beach vs. LA, Conroe vs. Houston, Allentown vs. Philly, Santa Rosa vs. San Francisco and Flagstaff vs. Phoenix), as well as some very cringe-worthy offerings (KKTM and KTBU, IMHO). Bonus Points for anyone who makes it through Dan Patrick's KTBU "Newscast"... Extra Bonus Point for KKTM's...
  2. A few from Canada: CKY Winnipeg before CTV took over from Moffatt Communications CICT Calgary before the rebranding as Global CIVT Vancouver before the switch to CTV - I love this theme!
  3. Now that I'm back from vacation...
  4. Unfortunately, that is one of the few markets I have no newscasts from. I’m still going through old tapes, but have not been to central Washington. Jim
  5. Some American Southwest... (More Phoenix on the way later this week...) KVBC (Las Vegas) 5/3/94 5pm (Missing the end of the newscast) KVBC (Las Vegas) 5/11/99 6pm KVVU (Las Vegas) 5/11/99 10pm KLAS (Las Vegas) 5/11/99 5pm KGUN (Tucson) 11/16/02 5pm
  6. More early 90s stuff: KFMB (San Diego) July 10, 1991 6:30pm KGTV (San Diego) July 11, 1991 6:30pm WDSU (New Orleans) April 3, 1992 10:00pm WALA (Mobile) April 4, 1992 6:00pm KOLN/KGIN (Lincoln) April 27, 1993 10:00pm
  7. interesting, as KRBC (also in the Abilene market) used the theme in the mid 90s... Jim
  8. OK - I have to call you on this one... The Eyes of Texas ran for over 30 years (1969-1999, original run; repeats through the 2000s) - definitely not short lived. Growing up in Houston in the 70s: Saturday Night at 6:30pm on Channel 2 - that was appointment TV! While it was the original, its primary "competitor", 4 Country Reporter/8 Country Reporter/Texas Country Reporter - out of Dallas - is still going strong closing in on 50 years on the air (1972-present), still producing new episodes each year. You don't see many shows like these two much now.
  9. Not much left pre-2000 - but I still have some tapes and discs to go through, so who knows... (Now is when I wish I had just flat out recorded full newscasts on my travels - I never went anywhere without either a Betamax (or 2), S-VHS deck and/or 8mm recorders...).
  10. This clears out everything I have digitized on the computer through 1992. Enjoy! WTVJ (Miami, FL) December 31, 1988 11:00pm Newscast repeat from the night of switching from CBS to NBC. Lots of "Don't Worry, Be Happy" promos... https://vimeo.com/527541034 WKTV (Utica, NY) October 20, 1991 6:00pm https://vimeo.com/522611254 WBNG (Binghamton, NT) October 20, 1991 11:00pm (Short Newscast) https://vimeo.com/529540745 WVUE (New Orleans) April 3, 1992 6:00pm https://vimeo.com/522613208 WXXV (Gulfport/Biloxi) April 3, 1992 9
  11. More mid-90s Goodness: https://vimeo.com/channels/1672797 Spokane, WA: KXLY Denver: KCNC, KMGH Lubbock: KCBD, KAMC Jim
  12. They used to - it was KAVU/25/NBC and KXIX/KVCT/19/ABC, then KVCT went off the air and KAVU migrated toward ABC and when KVCT came back on the air, they were Fox. IIRC, they had KPRC, KUHT, KRIV and KHTV from Houston; KMOL, KENS and KWEX from San Antonio, and not sure from Corpus. Currently the only out of market stations are KENS, KUHT and KLRN... (Hint: zap2it.com is your friend...) Jim
  13. I've not had anything pulled so far... But I've been with them for years, back when they were trying to be an alternative to YouTube. Now that their focus has changed to industry professionals - I'm thinking they're looking for certain types of material, and so far, my content hasn't raised any flags. It's also very easy to fly under the radar, if you're not promoting things (I have video linking turned off, etc.). That being said, I also have everything I've uploaded saved in multiple places, so if necessary, it can be positioned elsewhere if needed. Finally, at some poi
  14. More updates on my Non-YouTube Page. I plan to add some more tomorrow or Monday. Enjoy! 2021 Videos on Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/channels/1672797) 2005 Lubbock, TX: KCBD, KLBK, KAMC, and KJTV 2006 Columbus, OH: WWHO Jim
