not much to say about this one and I know I'm at the tail end of the acceptable years for classic video but i'm just surprised that WCIA was using the old WBBM graphics in 2007. who else was usin these? also really vibin with the enforcer cut in this close.

we finally have nexstar endboards showin up in chicago and it'll always feel weird to me bc i associate seein those with being downstate, lol.

 

 

My favorite cut of the Enforcer -- essentially a straight cover of the original I Love Chicago:

I'm not sure what this is, but it has something to do with WTSP and a tie-in with ABC's Saturday night campaign in 1990:

It’s raining Tulsa:

KTUL still using John B. Wells by 1989

 

KJRH kept using the same theme even during the morning hours (Russell Kinsaul worked there?!)

 

One of the earliest “6 in the Mornings” on YT

 

And Doc Morgan is a BIT TOO cheerful here.

Feel like I’ve heard this theme before:

 

 

WNDU used this theme for its weekend morning shows during the 90s & early 2000s.

 

I've heard this Killer Tracks theme used on local ads throughout the mid-90s.

For those wondering, it is production track 'Action News' from KT.

Editor's note: Killer Tracks has now merged into Universal Production Music. Its old URL name now directs to UPM. Catalog remains intact.

KNBC 1988 Olympic News Break

 

The ending has the synth bumper music that replaced News Center II cuts

 

I thought didn't debut until a year or so later...it lasted into 92, 93 I think

A promo from WCBS in September 1988, where it announces the new timeslot for the CBS Evening News (6:30PM), to make way for Win, Lose or Draw at 7PM.

@Ntropolis This is the theme KIMT and WTOK used! Seems like WBTW was using it a bit earlier — 1988, compared to the other clips which are from 1990.

 

🤔 The Coast???

WTSP 1994 promo for the switch to CBS programming:

 

 

At the beginning of November, WTSP was airing CBS This Morning and GMA had moved to WFTS. IIRC, primetime programming and network news did not make the switch until 12/12/94. I can only imagine how confused viewers were.
