  1. Found this on the FuzzyMemories channel. It's a 1973 CBS News special called "What's the Presidency All About?" (apparently a Saturday morning broadcast {having preempted Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids} and which the description describes as almost like an extended version of the long-running In the News segments) and was hosted by then-CBS Chief White House Correspondent Dan Rather

  2. From WFLD, a promo for the November 17, 1986 edition of the first official FOX series; the Late Show with Joan Rivers. Featured guests included Susan Lucci and Randy Travis 


  3. With Election Day 9 days away, the btm0815ma channel has uploaded ABC News coverage of the 1982, 1984, 1988 and 1992 Election Night coverage. The 1984 and 1988 uploads are of particular interest (at least to me) due to this being the first time more than a handful of brief snippets of ABC's coverage from 1984 and 1988 have surfaced on YouTube compared to CBS, NBC and (for 1988) CNN.

    They'll never be another Cleveland meteorologist like Dick Goddard. He'll always and forever will be a Cleveland institution and the most trusted voice in Cleveland Television weather. Goddard's contributions

    and for his love for animals throughout the entire Cleveland and Northern Ohio area were great. Goddard's weather forecast was honest, trustworthy, and he was very hard working delivering winter and severe

    weather alerts to his viewers to keep people safe ahead of the storm. He was the weatherman who, for over 50+ years, told many Clevelanders whether they need sunglasses, a rain coat/umbrella, or another

    log on a fire. 


    Thoughts, prayers and condolences goes out to The Goddard Family, and his entire family at WJW FOX 8.

    RIP Dick Goddard and Godspeed... You'll forever and always be one of Cleveland's Own.




    What a terrific legacy both on and off the air that Dick Goddard has left, and a huge loss for the generations of Cleveland area viewers who watched him over the years.

  5. Mostly a generic commercial compilation from a July 1987 airing of an adaptation of "Anna Karenina"; but a rarity around the 6:30 mark with a CBS News promo using the theme that would, that November, become the CBS Evening News theme for Dan Rather from 1987-91 and again for Scott Pelley for all but the last year of his tenure at the anchor desk.

  6. Just put up the first few uploads from a tape I bought from eBay containing a Star Trek marathon recorded from FOX O&O WFLD-TV 32 (outside of some recordings from WNBC's satellite feed when my parents had the "big ugly dish" these are the first uploads from an over-the-air station outside the Hampton Roads area). November 16, 1986. One of the uploads is a promo for WFLD's movie broadcasts that week.

  8. 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)

  10. 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

  11. 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. 

  13. 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)

    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.
