  1. Superb design, color palette, logo, not too crazy on Eric Gordon being their VO.
  2. That was EQ Vance. And I’d say the WDAZ pack was definitely more the knock-off. Very in-house-y.
  3. Here’s some KTSP one month before the call change, during the Northridge earthquake: Coincidentally, CA was struck with another quake today.
  4. Hard to believe the 1994-96 affiliation shuffles will be officially 25 years old on September 3rd. I feel incredibly old. (I say this 3 days after graduating high school)
  5. His name is Jim Morgan. NMSA still needs to identify him along with Bob Perry and Jeff Ellingson.
  6. That’s a neat KDKA open that so far only had the helicopter portion here on YT (6:54): Really it’s odd considering how KDKA was the news leader and WPXI was the ratings doormat, yet there’s more 80s ‘PXI material. Kinda similar to Indy and Cincy - their news leaders (WISH/WRTV and WKRC/WCPO) don’t have as much material as their last placers (WTHR and WLWT).
  7. Some WNYT from 1988 (!!!!) - with We Know What Matters scattered around, and a news brief anchored by a young Benita Zahn and a dark-haired Bob Kovachick. Sadly, no open.
  8. http://history.capitolbroadcasting.com/media-assets/jamburger-sports-promo-with-sports-anchor-tom-suiter/ Ever wanted to hear Doug Paul unleash his inner Scott Chapin? There are also plenty of WRAL promos on this site.
  9. Not trying to get @Ramona even more hyped up, but I think this theme would sound even better with Charlie Van Dyke’s booming voice (WYFF). That music actually does sound like a snippet I heard on a WYFF newscast snippet from 1987 on YT (which I can’t find).
  10. Finally, the FULL version of the WMAZ open uncovered!
  11. This WTVD break from 1984 shows a combination of the then-new italicized “11” logo (with Welch graphics and KING theme) and the non-italicized “11 Together” logo. Little did they know Cap Cities was a year shy of getting sucked up by ABC...
  12. KSL meanwhile is using News 88 a LOT earlier than I thought. Maybe they were the commissioners?
  13. That explains a lot. Maybe WWMT was GO too? Also @scrabbleship during that WNYT weekend news tease in that montage who is the sports guy in the on-set shot? He was definitely Roger Wyland’s predecessor.
  14. I noticed the WFLA GFX had similar vibes to WWMT’s 1996 pack. I believe both were VDO jobs? Take a look at the L3 similarities: They also had that “camera lens” graphic as well that I associate with the 90s.
