  1. From Ellis Feaster's channel, here's a 1994 episode of WPVI's long-running children's show "Captain Noah" https://youtu.be/u_9S19N3WLs From a search I did after running across the video, this is apparently the first full episode of the series that I've found an upload of.
  2. Tough year for Cleveland viewers with several well-known personalities passing on gets tougher with the death of Fred McLeod last night at the age of 67. McLeod, most recently the local television play-by-play broadcaster for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, had previously filled the same role with the Detroit Pistons as well as working as a sports anchor at WJ(K)W (where wife Beth is currently working as a meteorologist) and WDIV. https://fox8.com/2019/09/10/longtime-sportscaster-cavs-announcer-fred-mcleod-dies-at-67/
  3. I think it's safe to say that this might be the earlier surviving footage of anything from Hampton Roads 1960 WAVY-TV weather segment
  4. Figured someone was heading out the door once Craig Moeller returned. Hoping for the best for both Crystal Harper and Kristen Crowley.
  5. From the pannoni4 channel, a June 30, 1981 edition of the CBS Evening News. To my knowledge, this is the first time I've run across a CBS newscast from the period where they were transitioning from the Walter Cronkite era graphics to use Handel Gothic as the font before switching early in 1982 to the Serifa typeface used until late November 1987. https://youtu.be/AQVZ9Otul7o
  6. 1990 WRC special report on the cocaine trial of Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry https://youtu.be/01am066Og5c
  7. If there were any few remaining doubts about WWOR being a New Jersey station in name only, the beginning of 9 Broadcast Plaza's (sold late last year) date with the wrecking ball should put it to rest. https://www.nj.com/hudson/2019/06/bye-bye-channel-9-demolition-begins-at-secaucus-based-tv-station.html
  8. One other note regarding Deck Shuffling number 248 or so at CBS News, and that is the newscast moving to Washington in the fall on a permanent basis. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/cbs-news-announces-anchor-changes-at-cbs-this-morning-and-cbs-evening-news/ Going off what I remember reading about, the last time a Big 3 newscast was based at least in part in the nation's capital was during Frank Reynolds' tenure as part of the original 3-man crew for ABC World News Tonight (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)
  9. So it looks like meteorologists returning to the Hampton Roads region after leaving elsewhere looks like a trend so far (coupling the following with Jeff Edmondson returning to WAVY) Craig Moeller, newly dropped from KSDK in St. Louis, heading back to WVEC to return for a "great opportunity" (WVEC already has 5 meteorologists and per a tweet by Jeff Lawson he's going to be meteorologist number 6) https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/4/29/gone-in-st-louis
  10. Short (partial?) ABC Evening News broadcast covering Richard Nixon going to China, with Sam Donaldson (probably one of the earliest clips where it was obvious Sam had some cheap Astroturf on his head) anchoring. https://youtu.be/-CDu_xfEk_s
  11. Nicole Livas officially started as WVEC 5:30 & 11:00 anchor on yesterday https://pilotonline.com/entertainment/tv/larry-bonko/article_076fea82-4695-11e9-bb0d-67f7ffaad68c.html
  12. If we're including production music that was used later for news, 615 Music commissioned a production track called "This Just In" (basically a store-brand knockoff of Move Closer to Your World) that got used for a fictional newscast on some episodes of Disney Channel's "Lizzie McGuire". Interestingly, around the time that show wound down in 2004, Springfield, IL PBS station WEIU used it for theirnewscasts for a few years and it has also been used by a couple of stations in Puerto Rico.
  13. From the pannoni4 channel, the March 13, 1989 CBS Evening News https://youtu.be/pcNQYwFIkEE
  14. Sports videos from my birthday batch celebrating my 32nd birthday (all from a 1998 Sunday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Jacksonville Jaguars on ESPN) Intro Halftime Report Promo for the following week
  15. From my apparent tradition of uploading the number of videos matching the birthday I'm celebrating, here are two news-related videos from this birthday batch. 1990 WTKR Promo (Sports: Bob Rathbun) December 7, 1992 WAVY News 10 Tease (Alveta Ewell)
