KSAT serial killer open:

In my opinion, it's roughly an echo of one scary news opening from 1992:

Eh, not really... it's just really tabloidy ("slutty" as Chris likes to put it). No serial killer looks there.

yeah, the punches of sound as it zooms into the still store photos of the anchors in the KSAT open is much more over the top than the WBBM open, which preceded it by a couple of years.

 

On reflection, the WBBM open, while over the top, is really kinda quaint by today's standards. But I can understand why it was so derided when it first premiered - tt was just such a departure from the previous WBBM presentation

Beautiful KPIX open used from 1988. Sadly, with budget cuts they went to a near cold open and dropped this animation in 1990.

 

 

They also cancelled People Are Talking!

The open is 6pm, but the clip cuts to the 11pm Nightcast broadcast.

 

This link is for setting a password with TVNT. What's the link for the video?
