  1. KOMO 4 News at 11 open, 4/12/99 with Dan Lewis and Margo Myers KY3 Action News from August 2nd, 1987 (KYTV Springfield MO) at end of this clip...a new find overall! Early ABC World News Now, taped 10/1/1992 with Lisa McRee and Aaron Brown. KNDO News 23 Late Edition open 11/6/91 at end of this clip (also new)
  2. Mt. St. Helens retrospectives from Yakima, all reuploaded from the old channel
  3. Two Sunday night 'Eleven at 11' Eyewitness News broadcasts from KIRO, taped 4/27 and 4/20/2003. Wayne Havrelly and Sally Schulze are the anchors.
  4. KNDO NewsCenter 23 broadcast from 1/23/89, hours before Ted Bundy was executed. Anchor is Mary Leonard
  5. Dennis Prager tried to put his hat into the ring based on the minor success Rush Limbaugh was getting on his TV program. It didn't work. Gloria Allred is a guest in this episode, and also includes a WPTA Fort Wayne sign-off.
  6. Save those videos from VintageNoSpinage. There's lots and lots of stuff on that account that is eligible for strikes. Oprah Winfrey's, Geraldo's, etc. even soaps. Anyways, here's 5 minutes of KING 5 News at 11 from 11-15-88, with Don Porter KIMA NewsBeat at 11 (most), 6-1-92 with Heidi Adami, and a story about Bickleton (WA)'s HS graduation of *one*!
  7. KIMA News at 11 open, 4/23/96, with April Minister anchoring
  8. Summon Tom Skilling (WGN) to pull double duty at NN. Or maybe James Spann, Alabama's favorite weatherman.
  9. "From the heart of the Tri-State area...", a few minutes of WCBS News 2 at 11 from 6/21/2000. Previously uploaded in early 2021 before I lost my channel(s).
  10. A brand new batch of classic Yakima clips. I wish they were more complete. But in this age, finding any VK-250 tapes in the wild (like this one) is worth a scan in the VCR. KIMA NewsBeat at 11, circa January 1982, unknown female anchor albeit the late T.J. Close is doing a report on Greyhound cuts at the start. Also an unknown anchor, but here's three minutes of KNDO Newservice from October 1980!! Finally, much newer, the first few minutes of a Sunday night KIMA newscast from 9/28/03 with Roxeanne Vainuku.
  11. Speaking of these old Judge Judy reruns, Young Sheldon has never been cleared in Yakima, KIMA is running 4-year-old Judge Judy reruns instead...they could have tweaked the schedule last fall...i.e. 4:00 Judge Judy rerun 4:30 Inside Edition 5-6:30 news/CBS News 6:30 Young Sheldon 7:00 Big Bang Theory 7:30 The Simpsons But they didn't. The "Big Bang Hour" could have been promoted like crazy. The reruns are popular at least with my family members.
  12. More re-uploads. Almost a year since I lost my channels, and still close to 2,000 videos left to re-upload. KIRO NewsChannel 7 at 11 clip, 2/23/94, as Tonya Harding's hopes break apart in the figure skating competition. Steve Raible and Margaret Larson anchor. This wasn't long after they built a real news set following the ill-fated News Out of the Box experiment. Start of KIMA News Weekend Edition 3/18/01, with David Mance
  13. We had Judge Steve Harvey, what next? I mean, the networks are running OUT of ideas. A comedian as a TV judge. Seriously. Judge Wapner spins in his grave. And I like Steve Harvey's humor.
  14. With The Real leaving syndication, it's another hour that FOX/MNTV stations have to fill. With what? These syndicators are going to need to find new hosts (and shows) fairly quickly. Kelly Clarkson, y'all!
  15. Bye bye, Nick Cannon https://pagesix.com/2022/03/09/nick-cannons-talk-show-canceled-after-just-six-months/
  16. I grew up N of Seattle, so I remember those Fisher graphics (and Al Vanik's voiceover - 'First 4 Local News!') very well from KOMO 4. Best anchor pairing ever - Dan Lewis and the late Kathi Goertzen. Through all of Kathi's brain tumor struggles, Dan and the KOMO team cheered her own as if they were her own family members. My parents lived in Seattle from 1987 to 2010, and I was born in the mid '90s...and channel 4 was still their favorite station even before I was born. They watched more news on KOMO than any other station, and Mom always watched Northwest Afternoon to get recaps of the soaps with Cindi Rinehart. The set with the Seattle skyline was gorgeous. I got to shake hands with Elisa Jaffe and the late Ken Schram as a kid, so that was fun - no, not on camera. Other Fisher stations did the same thing. KIMA's *best* set occurred in a major overhaul during the Fisher era, with a view of Mt. Adams and the valley behind the anchors. That can be seen at the bottom of this post. Then there was KIRO 7 Eyewitness News, with the unmistakenable voice of Scott Chapin on the openings. This was my family's #2 station, even though KING 5 didn't go through as many anchors as 7 did in those days - they preferred Steve Raible over Dennis Bounds. The set dated back a few years, to when they reunited with CBS, but it's what I grew up with. Lost my baby pictures in a move, but there was a picture that my mom took of me as a little toddler pointing to the TV as the late Harry Wappler gave a weather report. Again, this was about as good as it got for Yakima (thanks to Fisher) and it's too bad KIMA severely cheapened this set years later.
  17. An AMAZING KIRO find! Susan Hutchison with blonde hair and a young Gary Justice on the oldest Seattle find I've ever made, the open to Eyewitness News from 2/4/1982! This has also been reuploaded - the final noon newscast from KIRO before they went to 'News out of the Box,' on February 4th, 1993. An epic failure it was. KNDO 11pm news from 5/13/2004 KXTV 11pm news (partial) from 11/2/1997 and last but not least...KAPP's 11:00 Report from 3/15/1988 with Linda Schlachter. This came from an Ampex tape, thus the distorted audio at times. The worst VHS tapes of all time, complete with their sticky-shed syndrome and thick bottom coating. I have some Ampex Betas that I haven't even gone through...I'm waiting to purchase a food dehydrator to bake them first! At estate sales, I skip most Ampex tapes nowadays as they are terrible on VCR heads.
  18. The Broncos lose to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship, and Lynn Setzer has the highlights on a late night rebroadcast of the 1/12/92 KMGH 7 News at 10:
  19. Colorado 7 News at 10, taped about 7 months before KMGH's affiliation swap. Lynn Setzer is the anchor. (Personal note: I love that old circle 7 logo with the green mountains. Denver's TV stations have boring logos nowadays that don't celebrate the mountainous region they serve. Even KRMA, which had mountain graphics in their logo, dumped it recently when PBS had their major redesign nationally.)
  20. Gary Darigol at the anchor desk for KNDO Local News 11 at 11, February 17th, 2003
  21. A bunch of reuploads: KIRO NewsChannel 7 at 11 clip from 4/23/94 - Brian Wood and Nerissa Williams. KATU 2 News at 11 from 2/26/06 - Natali Marmion and Anna Song are the anchors, Joe English WX And about 8 minutes of KAPP Local News at 11, taped 3/19/02 with Lucinda Kay and Thom Spencer's WX.
  22. Portland 11PM News clips 3/7/94 - flipping around between KATU-2, KOIN-6, KGW-8 KOIN NewsCenter 6 at 5pm (partial) 3/8/94 And another Carole Simpson ABC World News Sunday clip, taped September 28th, 1997 off KMGH Denver.
  23. A new find direct from Beta - about 5 minutes of ABC World News Sunday taped 9/14/1997 with Carole Simpson. Wonder how long ABC used this graphics package as I don't recognize it. And some re-uploads from pre-YT termination... KOMO News 4 at 11 4/17/95, where only one person at the anchor desk (Steve Pool) is still alive today. Kathi, Eric, and Bruce are all up in the skies now. And CNN NewsNight from 1/4/89 - Patrick Emory and Donna Kelley anchoring. Other CNN shows from that night have been reposted, including Crossfire and Moneyline.
  24. New Beta finds! KSTW Ten O'Clock News open, 1/17/88 with Rod Simons And a KIRO Eyewitness News open from 10/15/1984, which includes the KIRO 'NewsJet', a younger Susan Hutchison, John Marler, and highlights of the Spellman-Gardner gubernatorial debate. NOTE FOR H-TOWN...I just recently got another small lot of Betamax tapes, they came from Kansas but the TV footage seems to be from the Houston area. Some great KHOU newscasts to share soon from the late 1980s. Maybe more, as I have several left to inventory.
  25. A very young, Seahawk-playing, pre-KIRO Steve Raible in a PSA for the Variety Club, promos for 'Kidsworld,' a local news program produced by children and anchored by children, and more, in this classic compilation of ads from Q6 KHQ Spokane...way back in January 1982!
