The Chris Sloan archive gravy train keeps giving. There's even some rare KHJ from 1988! The 9:00 VO at the time would later do a lot of ABC Sports work in the late 80s and 90s. The 1:00 one was a

The channel with the WTOK clips had this and they can't identify where it came from. No other Meridian station would have had a newscast at this time?

 

 

That was most likely WTZH Channel 24 (now WMDN).

Wow, did not know they had news in the 80s (Wikipedia sure doesn't). They had a news director in 1988, though, so they must have had news at some point before the station imploded at the start of the 90s and went dark.

 

Channel 30 was still WLBM, a semi-satellite of WLBT, so they probably had the newscast from Jackson. This sure isn't that.

 

Edit: Here's another WTZH news segment — confirming it's them! (Ignore the video description) It's tagged "Action Sports 24", so their news must have been called "Action News". (It does seem like this was the title for their news operation at the time)

And now for something really obscure... KPHO's carpet-on-the-wall set as seen in the Coen brothers' Raising Arizona (1987). The man playing the anchor -- I believe he makes a few more appearances in the movie -- was the station's real-life film critic, the late Bill Rocz:

I believe the set was gone by the time the movie premiered, right?

A very interesting report from Jana Wendt (then with 60 Minutes) describing the anger of Melbourne viewers when HSV7 was bought by Fairfax in 1987 and Mal Walden was sacked. He later joined ATV10 and retired from that station in 2013.

KHJ in the mid-late 80s had "Simply Great News" with its 8 and 9pm news shows:

A couple of samples of that KCBS-WNEV theme from news teases with Warren Olney, from 1987:

On the Spanish side are these KWHY news bits... Early 2000s? Very late 90s? I have no idea on a date.

There's even a KDOC signoff:

Antenne 2's 8 p.m. news from 40 years ago this week, this time around with a Chromakey background (The bizarre coronation of Jean-Bédel Bokassa as Emperor of Central Africa -- a lavish ceremony that virtually bankrupted his country -- is the lead story):
