A new Canadian open found: CFRN Eyewitness News from 1993:

 

 

The obvious comparison is the CBS Newsnet end-80s/early-90s graphics:

EDIT: It's Aircraft as I predicted. Disc 1 - Title: The Motivating Factor

http://portal.aircraftmusiclibrary.com/main/?searchtext=volume[=ACL001]&0

 

If you were talking about the open, I'm 99.9% sure that's an Aircraft Production library track.... most likely found somewhere in the first 10 discs -

 

And upon listening to the rest of the tracks, i found a theme WAVE-TV used in '87 for their Midday News. Its the ACL001 Jet Stream Album. And the Track is called "Sundays Heros"

WUSA's 9am news opener from Monday, September 17, 2001.

IIRC, during those years the station lost most of its audience to a fast-growing WJLA (who hired both Mo and Gordon).

Canal 13's opener of its 1pm newscast, taped in 2005.

Back then the broadcast focused on "news for the people" and "news you can use", and still had an important reputation because of its consumer segments and analysis.

Four different news reports on a now-stopped practice of converting a trash landfill in Riverview, Michigan into a ski hill, from the early 90's. Included are reports from CNN, WXYZ, 20/20 and a French program, Ce Soir.

Now here's a real find: four promos from WTVC's "Part of Your Life" era!

 

 

Youtube channel also has other WTVC clips from the 90's

KXTV 1997 (?) bumper. Definitely a Gari signature, but does that mean TIYN began in '97?

 

 

Confirmed this is from 1997, so the NMSA must be off or their '96 theme was from Gari

It sounds like the 96 theme a little bit, honestly... We really need more KXTV from this period.

Go to 3:06 for a news promo with a similar package being used.

KXJB's 10pm news from August 6, 1991 (my dad's 18th birthday!). At around 11 minutes is a story on the death of Harry Reasoner:

To add on to this...that theme appears in TIYN (and Image), but not with that logo. What it does match perfectly is the '96 theme's logo...
