  1. Interesting. I had watched that clip assuming that WTVD had rebuilt the set by then as opposed to still using the conferences room as their temporary set.
  2. A little over an hour and a half of overnight FOX News 2000 election coverage (approx. 2:30-4:00 a.m.)
  3. And just barely over a week before the fire at WTVD that gutted their recently-introduced news set.
  4. Sad to see it go (much of my interest in sports history was from watching old game footage and highlights); but it seems once the major sports leagues launched their own channels, there wasn't much reason for ESPN Classic (to say nothing of the "out of sight, out of mind" perspective. Most likely very few people even knew the channel was still around by the time the announcement of ESPN Classic's official demise was made)
  5. Couple of WVEC clips I just ran across From 1978, a story by Kathy Barnstorff on the Phoebus section of Hampton From 1987, local restaurant owner Nelson Fuller (interviewed in the 1978 piece) being interviewed by WVEC's Sherri Brennan
  6. Got a short WRC promo from 1991 promoting their postgame report after Washington's November 3, 1991 victory over the Houston Oilers
  7. December 2000 edition of "Crossfire" tackling the Supreme Court hearings on the Florida recount chaos
  8. A few uploads from early 1996 A partial February 19, 1996 airing of ABC World News Now
  9. November 3, 1991 NFL Today pregame show, since football season is almost here
  10. RIP Willard Scott. A lot could be said about just his tenure on TODAY, let alone his other roles (co-hosting Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, his work in Washington prior to getting called up to the network, being the original Ronald McDonald when the character was created for the D.C. area) Loved Al Roker's tribute to Willard describing him as being like a second father.
  11. And an unexpected sighting with one of the sports reports filed by a young Brad Sham (better known as the longtime radio voice of the Dallas Cowboys)
  12. Found this August 1984 newscast from WBNS in Columbus Also found it interesting that the newscast included a story on the Columbus-based Cranston Csuri effects firm handling the CGI intro at the start of the film for the Republican National Convention prior to President Reagan's acceptance speech at that convention in Dallas (and the anchor struggling to mask disappointment that CBS didn't show the film or at least the beginning)
  13. And with football season almost here and with Marv Albert having recently retired; I had an NBC intro recently acquired from 1991
  14. And just a few days after what would have been original WTVJ anchor and news director Ralph Renick's 93rd birthday; we get this 1954 edition of the Ralph Renick Report
  15. Two 1994 WAVY uploads from my channel One, a promo for a story on television violence The other is a teaser taken from an April 24, 1994 Barney special (my sister was 4 years old at the time, which is probably the only reason my parents taped said special)
  16. Couple of uploads from Video Bill's channel; both of which are dealing with aging emergency services in Norfolk 1993 WAVY report on aging Norfolk fire trucks WAVY report on the aging emergency services in Norfolk (has 1986 listed in the title, but based on some late 1986 clips I've seen elsewhere that had the 1985-86 graphics and the set from approx. 1983; I'm leaning towards this being early 1987 at the earliest)
  17. Clip that just surfaced of WXIA's coverage of the Democratic Senate primary runoff from August 26, 1980 (during 11 Alive's final week as an ABC affiliate)
  18. Another KABC newscast, this one a 1972 one from Obsolete Video with what could be described as rather unusual shenanigans involving Stu Nahan and the KABC weatherman (don't recall his name) along with celebrity filled commercials (including future Dallas star Linda Gray in a Geritol ad and a National Airlines commercial featuring Kim Basinger as she was just starting out)
  19. Maybe it's the 90s kid in me, but stumbled across this clip that caught my attention. It's a snippet of 20/20 featuring a story of three Waynesboro, VA high school students who submitted - and managed to get produced - a story that was made into an episode of Tiny Toon Adventures
  20. 1988 WAVY promo for their noon edition of The Daily News with Carol Hoffman (from a batch of spots from a tape
  21. From WTKR's account today, and while it's not the main focus of the upload, it appears we have a case of mistaken identity in the control room
  22. Also longtime CBS announcer Don Robertson at the beginning of the year. Had just learned of Ervasti's death earlier today.
  23. About half of a WTKR newscast from April 21, 1990; roughly the tail end of the "Discover the Land of the 3" period.
  24. Couple of examples from some recent uploads 1987 WJLA spot plugging Magnum, P.I. reruns 1995 KGTV spot plugging American Journal
  25. New variant for ABC: Eh, could have been worse; but regardless I don't see anything that would justify this being worth the amount of money spent unless parent company Disney is in the mood of having money to burn at the moment.
