An interesting 1982 close from WGN in Chicago with the credits given by the announcer:

 

 

The set is a slightly modified version of the one seen in this 1980 clip, when WGN's news aired at 10 p.m. and was using NewsNine branding:

So KJRH used the stylized “2” for Election night 1990 even though they had switched to the circular “2” by September:

Judging the “24 Hour News Source” logo they must have used these graphics with the older logo.

Can't say that I've heard this WRAL campaign:

A bit of WTIC's News at 10 from it's first months:

A whole Sunday night CBS Evening News followed by a KFMB newscast from September 23, 1990:

Some KPTM teasers and a news open from 1995:

And here's Kalber's 1976 farewell from WMAQ (featuring Jane Pauley and goodbye messages from other Chicago news teams):

 

 

 

Here's Kalber's second and final Chicago farewell -- on the occasion of his 1998 retirement from WLS:

And finally, I think this has been posted here before, but no look at Chicago anchor tributes would be complete without this hour-long (!) special that WLS devoted to Fahey Flynn when he died in 1983:

The date is August, not November — it's primary night. He has them all misdated.

WBBM, Chicago; 10 p.m., 2001:

 

 

No opens in this 1999 video, but various bits and pieces from WMAQ, WLS, WBBM, and WGN:

From WVEC's channel, a 1981 report by late longtime reporter and later Virginia State Senator John Miller marking the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Norfolk Scope (which has been the subject of ample talk of being replaced of late)

Gonna give you some Tulsa:

Ever wanted to know where Richard Hull went after Cincinnati?

 

Tulsa news Fourth of July, 1986

 

KJRH had been using Hello as late as 1986....

 

....and by September (not August) was using Image Leader. Must’ve coincided with Jerry Webber getting main anchor.

From 1985, CNN's coverage of the crash of Delta Flight 191, combining a feed from WFAA with its own coverage:

WBBM's 2008 farewell to its historic studios -- among other things, the site of the Nixon-Kennedy debate and one of the first newsroom sets. Lots of great footage in this report:

 

 

 

 

And this is what the first newscast from the new streetside studio looked like:

This KMOV newscast from February 1995, using the "This Is Your News" moniker but the older imaging and music, shows how KMOV was starting to "soften up" compared to, say, a year prior, but they still had a ways to go compared to where they were by '96.

***RARE*** Here is CBS News offering election coverage back in 1974.
 


You can also go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVTQ7Jdm8_6L3RxH3_EAGMQ to check out the great stuff this person has uploaded.

Was just coming to mention that the owner of that channel has been on a tear in terms of uploads over the last couple of days. 

 

Side note: I saw a snippet of the set CBS used for their election coverage and that must have been the debut for that set (haven't seen anything from CBS outside of the Republican convention in Kansas City for 1976; but CBS would continue using the set through the 1980s before, based on a short clip in a commercial compilation I saw a while back, switching to almost a prototype of the 1991-96 CBS Evening News set for election coverage)

KTRK's "Legalese" sequence, circa 1989. The version of the SSB in this clip was used until 2009 or so, while the 1986 or 87-era Meditations intro survived into the early 2000s.

Huh, didn't realize she'd worked there too. At KPHO she was teamed with Fred Powers (real name Fred Fife), who was himself an ex-KTVXer (he used his real name in SLC but was apparently made to change it by KPHO staff).

Really? Just because of a rerun show? What the Fife?

WTHR, weekend 1997. Lexington viewers will recognize the meteorologist.
