Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

Recommended Posts

The video below is from Australia, but it's a remake of a classic American promo. Unfortunately, I can't remember which stations used it -- I think it was featured in Newsactive3's promo compilations, among other places. Can anyone help me out?

KFSN and WBNS, I believe IIRC, were two I can recall right now that used a promo structure like this.

KMTV from 1980. Anybody know what happened to John McDonald after KMTV? At this point, Dale Hansen and Dick Fletcher had left for greener pastures.

Partial KDKA 2 Eyewitness News October 17, 1979. The night the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series.

 

 

To add to this. Here is coverage from the Big 3 Pittsburgh stations of the Pirates World Series parade. Beginning with the end of the KDKA newscast I linked earlier.

A section of WTLV news from April 1990. Part of a story on film production in the First Coast, worries about Maxwell House leaving town (Jacksonville eventually headed off a push from Hoboken, NJ, for Max to relocate there, and today this is the only plant the company has), a murder, murder statistics and part of a story on the death of AIDS victim Ryan White:

More WSPA from their Millennium 3 era that I've found! This time an actual open with the late Chris Clausen as the V/O.

I always wondered what happened to Patti Suarez after she left KWTV. Thanks for sharing!

24 Years ago, Yesterday...

 

 

Hard to believe the 1994-96 affiliation shuffles will be officially 25 years old on September 3rd. I feel incredibly old.

Good news! Most dead link videos in this thread should be working again, as the FuzzyMemories YouTube account has been reinstated, assuredly without the heavily-copyrighted material that got it removed, in the first place. One of their first posts upon return is ol' Skippy introducing a package on 4th of July safety.

Here’s some KTSP one month before the call change, during the Northridge earthquake:

 

Coincidentally, CA was struck with another quake today.

Fantastic! Speaking of Phoenix stations covering California earthquakes, tonight might me a good time to repost this -- KTVK's coverage of the 1989 Bay Area Earthquake with the director's track:

WLFL didn't have news in 1982 (and wouldn't for many years), but they did use TNI&NI+ for promos:

Courtesy ewjxn, a squeeze tease for WDSU's weekend edition of Newscenter 6 at 10 from December 1, 1985. Talent ID's are also included. 

 

Stay tuned this Tuesday when the newscast itself (90% of it) will be uploaded on ewjxn's channel!

From the pannoni4 channel, a June 30, 1981 edition of the CBS Evening News. To my knowledge, this is the first time I've run across a CBS newscast from the period where they were transitioning from the Walter Cronkite era graphics to use Handel Gothic as the font before switching early in 1982 to the Serifa typeface used until late November 1987.
