    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    Some commercials from WTLV using their 2nd TVbD look: BTW, I'm Facebook friends with the guy who gave Channel 37 this tape (he's also given some material, mostly Jacksonville & Florida clips, to NewsActive3, who I'm also Facebook friends with now!).

    It's the end of the broadcast day for WHO-TV in 1988:

    Where the heck did this WUTR sign off come from?

    WJTV (and WHLT) new look coming?

    I'll bet they're saving it for Super Bowl Sunday or the AFC Championship.

    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    Here's a rather interesting find in a commercial compilation. Despite joining the 24-Hour News craze in the early 1990's, WDAF-TV would still sign off some nights (likely one Saturday or Sunday a month) for regular matinence. This is one example from 1994, just months before being sold to New World and going to Fox, note that the sign-off plugs the station engineers union!

    Surprise! It's two rare classic newscasts from WBKB!

    Will someone please request bigO!plabax to upload all he has of this? I've been waiting to see any video of ABC's The Last Word for ages!

    No, it was full on terminated. It's completely gone now. He would have to start over. But until then, Houston TV material on YT has become as scarce as markets like Ft. Myers or Madison. I'd completly forgotten that Florida's News Channel was a thing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Tr3u_ND1bo

    Well, come midnight it looks like we're in for another government shutdown, I would assume the cable networks are going to stay live into the overnight hours and the weekend evenings again?

    Logos used after their retirement

    The old Fox 32 logo was still used for their Community Calander, at least in December of 1993: That was taped in the early days of Fox Chicago, with MTV style graphics and promos like this one that aired around that time:

    WSJV's news open from 1987 using TNI&NI+, a few months after this, the station got a new logo and the KXAS squares graphics: https://youtu.be/UVU4pio0PMs?t=672

    I have a bad feeling that stevations will get terminated by NBCU within the next few months, go ahead and save his videos while you still can! https://www.youtube.com/user/stevations He had to stop posting videos after he lost his monetization privelages, and would like donations for new tapes and possibly a website to post them on!

    I do. They carry Kids Click now, so if TBD goes away, Kids Click could go full-time.

    Out & About

    I'm thinking CourtTV might end up being a replacement for Grit. They recently lost a lot of their content (mainly action shows and recent movies) and are now stuck airing mostly old westerns shows from the 50's & 60's (and not the biggies like Gunsmoke & Bonanza). Just look at their most recent schedule, looks like something you'd seen on the Luken networks: https://www.grittv.com/tv-schedule/
