News Director

News Director (7/8)



  1. Was going through some tapes and ran across this. It's most of the 6:00 WVEC 13 News for September 27, 1995 (about 5 and a half minutes in the first block got taped over by an episode of the tabloid show Extra, which I edited out); complete with Jim Kincaid's commentary ("Jim's Notes") To my knowledge other than an April 1, 1993 newscast that recently vanished from YouTube, I don't recall seeing any other full or mostly complete WVEC newscasts Jim anchored.
  2. Looks like (since I guess we're counting NewsMax as a major cable news outlet now) Greta's been working for all of the big cable outlets (first CNN; all those years with FOX News; that brief stint with MSNBC and now NewsMax) and worked for networks that have been more to the right (FOX and her new gig with NewsMax) and somewhat left of center (MSNBC; think CNN was a bit more to the center when she was working there vs. the last few years)
  3. Longtime Atlanta meteorologist (WSB, WXIA) Johnny Beckman has passed away at the age of 90. https://www.11alive.com/article/news/local/atlanta-meteorologist-johnny-beckman-dies/85-3bdb8b60-27e8-424f-b12a-04005ee869ea
  4. About 10 minutes of WTKR's September 4, 1989 11:00 edition of News 3 (main story being the rioting during Greek Fest in Virginia Beach) Also included is a promo for the premiere of Rescue 911.
  5. 1995 NBA on TBS promo from an eBay purchase (the tape in question was the Michael Jordan 55-point game less than two weeks after ending his first retirement)
  6. From Media Memories, the first 10 minutes or so of the March 29, 1988 edition of WAVY's The Daily News at 6:00, followed by a snippet of the end of a 1989 newscast.
  7. Ran across this partial 1974 KNBC newscast anchored by Don Harris (lead story being the U.S.-USSR summit on strategic arms control) not long before Harris got promoted by NBC to the network crew.
  8. Sad day in the Washington news world Regarding Bruce, I want to say that when he retired from WUSA he was the last person left from the WTOP era at that station.
  9. Regarding the current programming, since about 2010 INSP effectively is pretty much 90% Westerns, thus while nominally a Christian network at this point it's probably closer to Western-heavy digital network GRIT in terms of programming
  10. Stumbled across this April 19, 1983 WAVY newscast (judging from the graphics, this might have been near the end of the time they used the really bold variant of Helvetica dating to the tail end of the Area 10 era)
  11. Doug McKelway, late of FOX News, has resurfaced anchoring a show named CenterPoint on a network not normally associated with news, namely TBN (though he wouldn't be the only FOX News expatriate working for the religious network, as Mike Huckabee's opinion/variety show had moved there a few years ago) https://www.axios.com/trinity-broadcasting-network-centerpoint-fox-news-f006379d-6f4f-4416-8c98-3766e10a593a.html
  12. Part of a Super Bowl XVII post-game report (from a tape I got from eBay) Part of ESPNews coverage following the 1997 Evander Holyfield v. Michael Moorer fight
  13. Had a bunch of uploads as part of a birthday upload batch yesterday. This is the only news-themed upload of the group.
  14. Strange but I think as good an anchor as Anita's been at WAVY I doubt that it will be very long before she gets a more stable role at FOX 32. My congratulations to her on moving on up in a big way
  15. Oh, this is going to be very interesting to see how things end up once the dust settles (which sounds like it's going to take some time to do)
