Mike Lynch is retiring this summer, and one of the best ways to celebrate his career is with this well-remembered campaign called "I Like Mike" from the late 1980s/early 1990s. I can't believe he's leaving WCVB.

He's NOT leaving WCVB. He's going part time as he'll remain for special assignments, major sports events and other things including High 5 and its annual Thanksgiving special.

Thanks for clarifying it!

Before we had to suffer through the likes of "Teen Kids News," Chicago's WMAQ subjected its viewers to "Bubble Gum Digest."

A whole lot of KUSA's Good Afternoon Colorado from 1990. What is the music used? The VTS Making a Difference pack (WRTV 1991 which really should be KUSA 1990)?

Here is a KETV newsbreak and promo montage from the 1980s and 2003. Take note at 4:16, because the KETV promo for its weather department uses the KSN 1985 news theme.

Some of these montages have interesting stuff... This might be the best thing in them:

 

 

If only for their rarity, the KRTV and KECI glimpses are good:

If you listen closely, (I believe) KJRH used Soundtrack’s The Image Leader before they switched to WWL News:

And here’s a KETV news brief that proves it used the KSNW 1985 Theme waaaayyyy past its bedtime:

I suspected that. A fellow YouTuber told me that he watched KETV back then and they used the KSNW Theme from 1983 to 1988, and then switched to what is known as the KETV 1989 Theme afterward.

A WCAU morning cut-in from 1991, anchored by John Blunt. Like then-sister station WBBM, WCAU didn't have a morning newscast at the time and aired the CBS Morning News back-to-back from 6 to 7am. When it switched affiliations in September 1995 and became an NBC O&O, launched a 90-minute morning show with a start time of 5:30am and expanded the noon news to a full hour.

Wow, WCAU and WBBM were behind the times, weren't they? It seems weird that any major market Big Three station would have held out on airing a morning newscast through the early 1990s. Many started theirs as early as the late '70s, but most stations in the top-50 markets had expanded local news into the morning slot at some point during the '80s.

Can't speak for Philly, but Chicago was generally behind on the morning news trend. Updates in and around the network programs had been standard since the 60s, but no stations aired formal programs until WMAQ and WLS debuted in 1989. That said, there were unsuccessful efforts over the decade to expand. WLS, for example, was toying the idea of a full hour at 6am, but it never debuted.

We should add KCBS (another O&O) to the list: in 1994 the station canceled its hour-long 6 a.m. newscast and replaced it with a back-to-back airing of the CBS Morning News. The morning show was reinstated on August 12, 1996, beginning at 5:30am.
