  1. Now the only Taft station ID yet to be seen at this point is WTSP, WGHP, KTXA, & KTSP/KSAZ.
  2. Alright then. I'll keep that in mind.
  3. I was planning on doing the Susquehanna Valley after I finish Rochester and one St. Louis station, but it appears someone already beat me to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qt-x-bJxA38 (WGAL) (Yeah, it seems like embed URLs aren't working for me)
  4. My wish list of markets that I did compilations for. Terre Haute WAWV - Any news material from the early 80s when WBAK had a newscast, as well as mid-2000s videos when WTWO took over and made their "Prime Edition" newscasts on WBAK/WFXW. This is pretty much the only videos that are needed as there is plenty of WTWO and WTHI material on NA3 & WTWO's original compilation. Tampa Bay WTOG - Anything from the late-1980s and early-90s, as well as a "Newswire" open from 1995-1996 with Scott Chapin as VO. WWSB - Plenty of holes for them here and there. Any news material from the WXLT days (the one in my compilation was spliced to make it seem complete) and news opens when they used "All The News". There is a "Counterpoint" open from the mid-90s and while there is audio in the NMSA, I remember watching the video a few years ago, so the video has likely been taken down and nobody has uploaded it back. Birmingham WBMA/WCFT/WJSU - I don't think any material for WCFT would be necessary as given the release of a 1991 open, that part is already satisfied. What is needed, is mid-80s-1988 material from WJSU, especially news opens as there are images of them on Logopedia, but I assume they've been taken down. Same goes for early ABC 33/40 material from 1996-1997. WBRC - More late 1980s opens are needed (first few years of "Palmer News Package"), as well as mid-2000s opens when WBRC had opens with the Fox O&O graphics. WVTM - Opens with Mason Williams' "Classical Gas", the KDFW 1979 theme, and any material from 1995-1995 when they used "One and Only", all of which are in audio form in the NMSA, but their respective videos have likely been taken down. WIAT - More videos when they used the WSLS 1988 theme and any 1996 material, especially news opens, when they were WBMG. As for WIAT, the current morning open. Providence WJAR - News opens from 1994-1996, when they used the general "Advantage" theme. WLNE - Any material when the station was WTEV, any news open material between 1983-1985, more opens from 1985-1999, especially opens when they started becoming an ABC affiliate (again). WPRI/WNAC - Any pre-2000s news opens (from around when they began their newscasts) (in regards to WNAC). As for WPRI, any news-related material from the late 70s-1980, more opens with "Hello News", more 2000s opens (Eyewitness News & first years of Newsforce, their current theme). Puerto Rico WAPA - Any opens using the WNDU 1986 theme, Newswatch 24, News One, Impact, and News Authority. WKAQ - Any opens with the Telemundo 1999 theme, Raw Power, WKAQ 2007 theme, and KBLR 2007 theme, although audio versions are in the NMSA. Hawaii KHON - News opens from the mid 1980s (with 1979-1986 NBC logo) and 1989-1991 open, along with opens from 1994-1996 before they switched to Fox. KGMB - Any news-related material from the 1980s when they used "The Team To Watch" graphics. KITV - There's a lot of time periods with not a lot of content, so there needs to be more news items from the 1980s, especially opens with the original ABC World News Tonight theme, the Tar Sequence theme, and Spirit of Texas. Along with that, opens from around 2000. KHNL - Nothing much that is needed other than opens of their newscast before the switch to NBC (1995).
  5. So far, I'm planning on Rochester (NY) and Grand Rapids.
  6. Merry Christmas everyone! Here is my Christmas gift, a compilation of KHON.
  7. Same can be said for Wichita and his channel being terminated alone may hinder the ability for someone to make news open compilations for that market, especially when considering he had opens when KAKE used The News Image.
  8. I just have found a very rare news open of WLNE from 1994-1995 (skip to 5:03).
  9. I'll be headed to two markets this time around. The first one is a market that is small, yet compilation-worthy and that market is Terre Haute, and I'll be starting off with a rare occurrence, and that is a PBS station having a compilation, and that station is WVUT. As for the second one, it's a wait and see.
  10. I decided to get back into doing Puerto Rico. This time, WAPA gets it's compilation, although I might need some help with having a recording or recordings of WAPA's current news open that isn't a second-hand recording.
  11. Lastly, here is the former laughing stock of Birmingham television, WIAT.
  12. After days of finding and adding clips, I have finally finished the compilation for WVTM. Stay tuned in a few days for WIAT.
  13. I thought this was too complex for me to do, but I've done it. While I'm still working on WVTM, I decided that while it would be delayed for a while, since the only 2018 open on YT is a cold open. WVTM would've been uploaded today, but instead of WVTM, in it's place for today is the modern-day powerhouse that is ABC 33/40 (WBMA-LD/WCFT (WSES)/WJSU (WGWW)) that is next for their compilation.
  14. My first new TV market that I'll be doing a compilation on will be Birmingham, and first off is the #1 station in that market, WBRC.
  15. I found old news opens from KTVX's old days (when they had different call letters) from their website. The NMSA already has them, but I decided to upload the news opens to YouTube.
