Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

Those Phoenix clips are a nice stocking stuffer. Especially when there are stories with titles like "Grid Plan or Papago?".

 

Also on YT today, a KPWB news promo (!):

 

 

 

And a KCRA noon open from January 1 of that year — when northern California (and Nevada) were in the grip of major flooding:

First, Merry Christmas to you 

 

Looking at the WVEC YouTube channel and they've been busy uploading their Navy Christmas/Holiday Salute specials ranging from 1988 to the most recent one I see was uploaded today being from 2012.

WCHS was pretty impressive in the '90s from the clips I've seen. Much better look than what came under Sinclair ownership.

Still waiting to find some WCHS during their Giant Octopus era.

Anything from the 80s is missing.  Also the Ultra News era and 2005 newscentral era graphics.

What's coming up on The Big News tonight? KELO was in a time warp for much of the 80s, not that it showed in the ratings:

 

 

KELO continued to use "The Big News" theme and name until 1990 (!):

Crappy recording of a WISC weekend newscast in 1998 with the Star Trak theme. Would be nice if this person would digitize it (or send the tape to someone who can). Talent open at about 6:28.

A treasure trove of 1998 WITI, all revolving around the retirement of John Drilling.

 

Some observations: The "Newscenter" set is brand new here (weeks old), and the newsroom and weather office have yet to be renovated to match. There are also still human camera operators in the studio. Also a few clips of Molly Fay, now over at WTMJ doing the Morning Blend, and Scott Steele who is now suing WTMJ/Scripps

 

A few of these packages were crammed right at the end of the show, so there's a few seconds of the classic Magnum close music sprinkled throughout.

Airchecks probably don't get much older than this!

 

 

Almost certainly the oldest surviving complete newscast yet to be discovered (special emphasis on complete)

We've already seen KXTV's coverage of Loma Prieta as it started to unfold—now we have a full, 45-minute (!) 11pm show from that night, and it's a treat with its own special open.

 

 

Not the only long KXTV aircheck we got in the last week: five and a half minutes of coverage of the Sun Valley Mall plane crash in Concord from 1985. At the time, the station was still using the Tuesday "Spirit of California" theme:
