  1. “News People” is one of my favorite news themes. Here’s an instrumental cut from the package as used by WIS-TV in their morning sign-on from 1980:
  2. I really hope that somebody out there saved footage of that prank. But hey, if the BBC was able to save their “spaghetti trees” footage, then I’m sure the Great Blue Hill thing is around somewhere. Anyway, back on topic, the user known as “btm0815ma” has been uploading some great stuff lately. One of which being this newscast where Dan Rather talks about a recent incident where he was assaulted on the street by a crazy person. Although not mentioned here, the perpetrator allegedly said to him, “Kenneth, what is the frequency?”, which later inspired the name of a popular R.E.M. song. Speaking of Dan Rather, here’s one of the newscasts that led to his downfall as CBS’s lead anchor, in which he shared fabricated documents about George W. Bush’s army career.
  3. Here’s WTWO in Terre Haute with a logo that looks suspiciously similar to the one that WMAR in Baltimore was using at the time. Speaking of which, the logo that they’re using now is a rip-off of WGRZ!
  4. Here’s Ed filling in for the weather after Bob fell off of the roof at home:
  5. There goes another part of my childhood.
  6. The long-gone cable news channel Capital News 9 used that same cut for their weather reports. Jeez, it’s been years since I last heard that music.
  7. Here’s a vintage WABI newscast from January 28, 1982. It also has some hilariously 80’s commercials.
  8. To be fair, KJRH was his first client back in 1982.
  9. A rather interesting story from WRGB about a local school’s newscast. Not sure exactly when this aired, probably around late 90s?
  10. That’s a young Brad Pitt in the thumbnail! He appears in a couple of commercials in this upload.
  11. ABC coverage of the crash of Korean Air Lines 007. As a bonus, have some TWA 847 coverage too.
  12. Here’s a vintage 1965 look at KNTV in San Jose, back when it was still an ABC station. https://archive.org/details/casjhsj_000045
  13. Obsolete Video’s latest discovery is this 1973 KABC commercial break, complete with a brief glimpse of the sign-off news at the end! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BLaZZ2tK4Ds
  14. He was also the news anchor in the 1994 film, Without Warning, which is where I mostly know him from.
