  1. Some rare WBBJ recordings from the collection of former anchor John Scofield, first up is this 1985 one with NewScore as the theme: There's also this 6pm newscast from 1986 which John anchored, using Cascom effects along with what I assume is production music: And theres this piece from his last newscast in 1992, which features part of an open from 1988 with the ABC Something's Happening news theme, and closes with the music from the first VidAmerica logo:
  2. ArchiveAnnex just unearthed what might be the earliest footage of Ed Hopkins ever:
  3. Before Chicago, Larry Moore did anchoring duties at KPIX:
  4. Here's KSFY in 1991 with the WPTV theme:
  5. A bit of WDAY from 1987: The same graphics were used up north at WDAZ:
  6. I think he does that through the use of multiple email addresses....
  7. WDBO in 1981 covering the opening of Florida's first Showbiz Pizza, includes the open of that newscast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLuivRedaDU
  8. Two newly unearthed classic Abliene opens on YT (with hopefully more to come!) KTXS from 1988 using a Tron-esque graphic and the "Spirit of Oklahoma" theme: And KTAB using some kind of orchrestra piece of music:
  9. Obviously a lot of companies are wanting to flex their copyright muscles on YT accounts since they're still under a COVID-induced drought of box office money.... And as for VHSgoodiesWA, would you go to court to reinstate your accounts if you could?
  10. That's great news (get it?)! Someone better now start archiving all his videos before his next and likely permanent termination!
  11. An ultra rare KFMB newscast from April 25, 1967, back when they still branded their news as "This Day 196X". There's lots of switching back and forth between color and black & white, mainly during commercials and field reports:
  12. You just never know if you're video will be safe from copyright claims. You could be safe for awhile but then a big company like NBCU will want to flex their copyright muscles..... Here's a full WBNG newscast from 5/28/1987, as we've learned this week, you should enjoy it while you can.....
  13. It seems to me that Perry Sook is a rather slow or old fashioned kind of guy. Remember, up until the assimilation of Media General, they were against online streaming of local newscasts and subchannels on their stations. This whole having NewsNation as a cable channel you can only stream through your cable subscription instead of an OTT network you can watch for free on a service like Pluto TV is another example.
  14. KMBC in its later days as a Metromedia station: KTIV from July 19, 1989: And WITI from 1988: Some WLYH clips from its waning years, by this point, they were only airing a 6pm newscast (the 11pm one was replaced in 1992 with syndicated programming):
  15. KMBC in its later days as a Metromedia station: KTIV from July 19, 1989: And WITI from 1988:
