KWWL from 1983, featuring one of the earliest Jeff Ellingson VOs and a theme I’ve heard but I don’t know where.

Very interesting to see what WFAA's competition was airing in the late '70s. I'm sure KDFW thought they scored big when Chip Moody make the leap from KXAS. That guy was incredible.

There was another station that used the WEVU 1984 News Theme: WBKO in Bowling Green, Kentucky. They used that theme in the mid 1980s. I know this, because I saw a montage on WBKO's website when the station celebrated their anniversary just a few years ago. In fact, I saw a rare "13 News" open from the late 1970s along with WBKO's "NewsCenter 13" open using the WEVU theme.

Another Action News used the same campaign to promote its anchors: here's a small portion of a WTNH promo from the 1980s mocking Janet Peckinpaugh's last name.

Just within the past several days, BTM0815MA has uploaded some of the best videos on YouTube. In fact, it is a channel that I visit everyday. I want to share this video with all of you from that user.
 


Be sure you watch at 29:05, because you are in for a treat. At 29:05, you get to see the entire WTVF evening news intro from 1980 using TuesdayC by Tuesday Productions.
