  1. Couple of news snippets from a 1995 WPIX tape I got from eBay that included an airing of the 1947 "Miracle on 34th Street" film 1995 WPIX The News at Ten snippet (immediately following said movie) 1995 WNYW Ten O'Clock News snippet
  2. Adding my congratulations to Jim Gardner on his retirement (and was floored to see the post on that last newscast having a rating share almost as big as the Eagles' Super Bowl win almost 5 years ago) I will agree that WPVI might need to look for someone younger for the intros (the intro reminded me a bit of how Van Dyke sounded on the last couple of intros he did for WAVY-TV 10 before they dropped him in early 2017); though at least his voice hasn't declined to the extent Jeff Kaye's did about 12 years or so ago.
  3. Couple of goodies from the Obsolete Video channel November 10, 1978 newscast from WHSV-TV 3 in Harrisonburg, VA (with future Washington Wizards broadcaster Steve Buckhantz working both weather and sports as well as some rare retail commercials) Also, a 1972 edition of "60 Minutes" around the time of Richard Nixon's visit to China
  4. What a devastating loss for the Tayag and Myers families as well as their WBTV colleagues, especially entering the holidays. Also agree in commending Chip Tayag for doing all he could to avoid this potentially being a much worse tragedy than it already is.
  5. Ran across this yesterday. It's an August 1984 WISN newscast from before the transition from Action News to 12 News took place (and just before the synthesizer version of the ABC World News Tonight theme gave way to Jim Kirk's WWL News theme)
  6. Two uploads from a recording of the Packers vs. Buccaneers playoff game from the 1997 season (played on January 4, 1998) Most (missing the intro) of the FOX pregame show And since I don't see the link to the intro to the game (which for some reason won't display here due to NFL copyright concerns even though the video itself is still up); here's the link. January 4, 1998 FOX NFL intro (Packers vs. Buccaneers - 1997 NFC Divisional Playoff Game)
  7. Something I stumbled across today. The first 10 minutes or so of ABC's coverage of the 1988 Iowa Caucus.
  8. And the winds of change continue blowing at WAVY, as longtime morning anchor Don Roberts is retiring, with September 30 as his last day. https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/end-of-an-era-wavys-don-roberts-is-retiring/
  9. Wasn't there a story about Dan Rather being on vacation when the Oklahoma City bombing took place and Connie Chung anchored CBS coverage herself initially (though the implication was when Dan got to Oklahoma City, he started anonymously bad-mouthing her; which set the stage for Connie to get the boot from CBS about a month later)
  10. A few things I noticed. One; I think this might be the first time a full newscast from the WOR era has surfaced (at least, that I'm aware of) and why does Bear look like he's about to...relieve himself in the image that the algorithms at YouTube have chosen for the thumbnail? Also ran across this today (mostly a group of commercials from an episode of Family Ties, but starts with a WAVY special report on a 3 alarm fire {don't recall seeing any local "special report" graphics from that era before})
  11. They did an excellent job tweaking the 1987 theme.
  12. WVEC compilation of clips from September 1990 I just ran across. Included are promos for PrimeTime, a Ted Koppel Report special and a WVEC newsbreak anchored by Barbara Ciara (also sprinkled in are spots for Head of the Class after Billy Connolly replaced Howard Hessemann and an incomplete Cop Rock promo)
  13. From WVEC's account, I can say with a good bit of confidence this is the oldest complete or nearly complete footage from that station that has surfaced. This is a September 1975 special titled "The Invasion of '75", hosted by a young John Miller and focused on the increase in tourism in Williamsburg and Yorktown (no doubt Busch Gardens opening and the approaching American Bicentennial were major factors)
  14. Promo for 1992 election coverage on the News 12 Long Island cable network
  15. 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.
  16. 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)
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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)
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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)
  25. 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
