    WALA in 1984 with the NBC Nightly News theme and a pre-WABC Bill Evans:

    Elsewhere, an NBC News Update from 1978 where Carole Simpson pushes through even when her mic fell off

  2. 1988 NBC New Hampshire coverage (infamous for Kansas Senator Bob Dole's "stop lying about my record" swipe at Vice-President Bush following the Bush campaign's "Straddle" ad accusing Dole of favoring higher taxes)


    April 17, 1974 edition of NBC Nightly News including coverage of the death of NBC correspondent Frank McGee

  3. Latest batch of uploads from btm0815ma including the first and last ABC newscasts anchored by Harry Reasoner (and with the latter, final newscast before the ABC Evening News branding was retired in favor of the World News Tonight name)



  4. More goodies from btm0815ma uploaded today, mostly miscellaneous intros (first Harry Reasoner and Barbara Walters ABC intro; first and last intros for NBC with Tom Brokaw and Roger Mudd anchoring, first intro for  ABC World News Tonight with Peter Jennings as solo anchor and a series of intros from set and theme changes); but also includes the full newscasts with the last CBS Evening News cold intro, first theme intro, the newscast with Dan Rather going AWOL because a U.S. Open tennis match ran a couple of minutes long and the NBC Nightly News broadcast introducing The Mission)

  5. From one of Michael Pannoni's channels, one of the last USA Tonight (nee Independent Network News) broadcasts from March 29, 1990 (recorded from WGN)


    Also, tried posting this last night but don't see it here; here's an extended 11:00 WAVY newscast covering Hurricane Gloria in 1985

  6. From WVEC's channel, they posted a playlist of videos since last week marked the 40th anniversary of the "Circus Snow" (when 12 to 14 inches of snow landed just as the Ringling Brothers circus arrived in Hampton Roads). Highlights include yet another brief snippet of WVEC right at the end of the intro (with the WNT synth theme) and Judith Baroody, the reporter on the field in the first few clips, doing a piece on the "Blizzard of 1980"...in song

    Laura Caso is joining WKYC in Cleveland from WAVY in Norfolk.  She will be joining Russ Mitchell on the 6pm newscast, and might pickup some more anchoring duties once Sara Shookman goes on maternity leave.


    Based on this assignment, it sounds like WKYC has big plans for Laura Caso by teaming her with Russ Mitchell. Will miss seeing her locally, but wishing her the best. 

  8. Random thought here: Had this scandal not come to light, how many people outside of the Cleveland/Akron area would have known this guy was still alive? It's not like Angley has anywhere near the reach his broadcasts had even during the early 2000s (until hearing about this, that was about the last time I remember hearing anything about him)

    ***RARE*** Here is CBS News offering election coverage back in 1974.

    You can also go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVTQ7Jdm8_6L3RxH3_EAGMQ to check out the great stuff this person has uploaded.

    Was just coming to mention that the owner of that channel has been on a tear in terms of uploads over the last couple of days. 


    Side note: I saw a snippet of the set CBS used for their election coverage and that must have been the debut for that set (haven't seen anything from CBS outside of the Republican convention in Kansas City for 1976; but CBS would continue using the set through the 1980s before, based on a short clip in a commercial compilation I saw a while back, switching to almost a prototype of the 1991-96 CBS Evening News set for election coverage)

  10. From WVEC's channel, a 1981 report by late longtime reporter and later Virginia State Senator John Miller marking the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Norfolk Scope (which has been the subject of ample talk of being replaced of late)

    It looks like ABC has picked up ESPN's coverage....going straight from their own ABC News Special Report into ESPN's coverage which is also being simulcasted on ESPN2.


    I haven't seen anything on CBS, although they've likely broken in several times.


    FOX was running a crawl in their college basketball game.


    NBC was on with a Special Report pre-empting the figure skating event, they've since gone back to figure skating.

    Have seen several reports saying that his daughter was one of (according to the sheriff in a press conference about 30 minutes ago) the 9 onboard.


    Have been watching the CBSN coverage and they have been carrying mostly the coverage from KCBS.

    Some sad news to report. The great Jim Lehrer, the co-founder of the PBS NewsHour, has passed away of the age of 85. 


    In addition to his NewsHour role; Lehrer was known as the king of debate moderators, having moderated 12 general election debates between 1988 and 2012

    Nexstar Media Group Enters into De-Leveraging Buy/Sell Agreements with Fox Television Stations. Nexstar to Purchase Charlotte’s FOX and MyNetworkTV Affiliates for Approximately $45 Million and Divest Seattle’s FOX andMyNetworkTV Affiliates and Milwaukee’s FOX Affiliate for Approximately $350 Million.

    The Charlotte stations being sold is a mild surprise. Not so much WITI (previously a FOX O&O following the absorption of New World Communications until it and several other smaller O&O's were sold) or the KCPQ/KZJO duopoly (FOX apparently has been eyeing them for years going back at least to 2014 {with the reverse compensation dispute that saw FOX threatening to pull their affiliation, which would have ended the day before the 2014 NFC Championship Game})
