    Quick question, will YT ever renable the ability to search by upload date anytime soon?

    Non-News Classic Video

    For much of the 70's, KAIL only broadcast about 4-5 hours a day, it was mostly public affairs and religious shows. I wouldn't be surprised if there was a brief period where the station went dark and then came back under new owners and with a stronger signal and schedule.

    Here's our mystery man the late Jeff Ellingson right after he began VO work for WAFF:

    Proof of ABC's desperation for ratings?

    They had been using that theme dating back to at least 1982, as evidenced by the end of this vid:

    Out & About

    If ABC winds up canceling GMA Day Strahan & Sara (what are their ratings like?) and does announces a comeback for the cancelled soaps, they can only bring back one or the other, since they gave 3pm back to the affiliates back in 2012 after OLTL's replacement The Revolution, bombed. And don't expect them to cancel the View too, that show just got it's second wind by becoming another anti-Trump outlet. My money is on the older All My Children getting the reboot, but who knows?

    I did hear somewhere that even though Kelly's show will replace Steve on the NBC O&O's, Steve wants to keep his show on the air under a new distributor, whether it be on other stations, or on a completely different platform (like cable or streaming), is not known.

    Aha! I knew you'd take my bait @Info Junkie! But next time, please give the original uploader credit! Here from the same source tape is the sign-on of WHO-TV, and the promo appears again at 8:19.

    Well, congrats! Your posts don't look like that of an 18 year old, they're very professional! Did someone order some Wichita clips?

    KDEB's last day as an ABC affiliate was October 5, and their newscast ended on July 25. @Info Junkie, you might want to upload this yourself, it's the rare First News/Nowhere Else campaign from WHO-TV which I previously thought was exclusive to CTV stations:

    Now here's a real rarity. Channel 10 in Helena, back when it was Helena's first Fox affiliate (which after a series of affiliation switches and a hostile buyout of the IP by Gray is now KUHM, the Helena outlet of Montana PBS) had Montana's very first 9pm newscast, which was produced by KTVH under a time brokerage agreement. https://youtu.be/-x9gSICsm44?t=581

    A Florida News Network special from May 1997 on preparing for hurricanes. This was produced at and recorded off WFTV, an early example of their Counterpoint/EQ Vance era. Due to bad weather and power failures, WDEF is forced to do their 11pm news for March 20, 1995 from their newsroom:
