That man is Yves Mourousi, he anchored the 1pm news on TF1 for 13 years (1975-1988)

You heard WMAQ's version of NBC's 'Come Home To The Best' campaign from 1988 on TVPMM, now video of the promo has been posted on YouTube.

Staying in the Windy City, here's a long compilation of WLS news promos from the 1970s:

 

 

I believe these are all the work of famed Chicago commercial director Joel Sedelmeier.

The worst tape quality I've ever seen on YT... EVER.

 

Can't tell if it's a bad tape or if they don't know how the tracking button on their VCR works...

Late rebroadcast of WAVY 11pm Saturday night news from October 1987:

 

Includes a version of the "You're Covered" promo and the station signoff at the conclusion of the rebroadcast. Also, what was up with the abundance of fuel company ads in the late 80s?

 

Looks like there are a couple other 1980s WAVY videos on that channel (literally just ran across that channel about 5 minutes ago)

 

1986 WAVY Promo (Don Slater; who it looks like had not too long ditched the mustache he had early on):

 

1986-ish WAVY Daily News Promo (Weekend Team):

 

Also noticed in the video you linked to that about 30 minutes in; someone accidentally slapped a Proud N peacock just before the sign-off.

In this 1984 signoff, the script is nearly identical but with a different voiceover.

Bad tape quality so I can't see what NBC logo is used. I'm assuming it's the same Proud N peacock.

 

My guess is it was originally produced around 79/80 with the Proud N peacock, and they updated the station logo and voiceover every few years but kept everything else the same.

In its entirety, here's the legendarily disastrous launch edition of 20/20 -- so poorly received that both anchors, as well as the show's executive producer (Bob Shanks), were fired within the week:

Never knew an aircheck of this existed. Amazing find.

KTVI, April 1994. There's a notable difference in this variant of the open...can you spot it?

WBNS 1996 newscast. This is the best executed station image I've ever seen. Those graphics are super cool:
