And staying in Chicago, this 1990s WGN compilation opens with three news/weather promos, including a pre-launch promo for the WGN Morning News:

 

 

 

 

These WGN promos look like they were produced 1993-1995, when WGN became a WB affiliate in 1995.

Here's a look at KSPR when it was known as "ABC 33".  I'm not certain exactly when this clip was recorded, but looking at Wikipedia KSPR rebranded from "ABC 33" to "Springfield 33" in 1998, so it's safe to assume this was perhaps 1997 or 1998.    If anyone knows more exactly when this was, I'd greatly appreciate learning that.   Also noteworthy is that you can see Sonya Kullmann when she was earlier in her TV career.  She would go on to KOLR10 where she anchored their morning newscasts in the 2000s, then replacing Joy Robertson as co-anchor in the evenings before leaving that station around 2012.  She is now with Mercy Hospital in Springfield.

In memory of Ed Dague, the man who shaped Albany TV news. Say hi to Ed Hopkins for us.

 

Here’s Ed filling in for the weather after Bob fell off of the roof at home:

And to complete our 1990s Chicago promo trifecta, here's one from WMAQ:

 

 

Is there a chance to find that scent commercial where Newswire was used as the soundtrack? That's strange!

This video is stretching the bounds of this sub, but I think given the circumstances this applies. Never mind that a video from 2007 from this station would look near identical to one from when this was made but I digress.

 

For the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, Ed Dague did an interview recalling what went down that day. This was one of his last television appearances, prior to the WNYT tribute last night I thought it was his last but there was at least one more interview he did a couple years back.

I've been looking for that one for quite some time, but I haven't had any luck finding it.

Even considering its small market size, this doesn't feel like a newscast from 1990:

 

 

 

I also just learned about W call letters west of the Mississippi

What’s even more amazing, WDAZ went on the air in 1967; long after the K/W line was moved.

I'm gonna say the template KFOR had in the old building for their set may have lasted for nearly THREE decades AND it survived 4 different ownerships (Palmer, New York Times, Local TV, Tribune) among other things. Oh and it survived through 2 tornadoes (June 1998, May 2003)

That KFOR pack is definitely EGAD, not Vance.

 

This KIMA open is different from the others I've seen with Working For You...a lot cheaper but with a cool jazzy "late open" cut:

KWTV had really slick graphics, that’s for sure.

I believe WFMY used that cut too.

It's sooo ridiculously 90s... especially the first letter mismatched font type on the supers. I love it.

Hey, it’s the weird KOVR news open again!

 

 

WBNS used that same VO in the late '80s. 

 

Kinda bizarre open especially considering they seemed to have a good anchor team and set in place.

Is that actually a cut of Earwitness News or not? Doesn't sound like it. Only other place I've heard it was, believe it or not, an old Kids in the Hall sketch. I assume it was some kind of generic package from a library, which would fit with KOVR's general MO of the time.
