I broke up an 8-hour tape I had made of the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster from 2/1/2003 into four parts. It features coverage from a few of the networks and some of the Houston stations as well. As the clips go on it becomes more KTRK dominated. I have more tapes from this day since I recall running a couple of VCRs at the same time.

A bit of WISH's news from August 8, 1987, devoted to the opening of the 1987 Pan-Am Games held in Indianapolis (the second and most recent time a US city held them)

Then NBC affilate KCBJ-TV (Now ABC affilate KMIZ-TV.) Ch. 17, Columbia, MO from October, 8, 1982 (Early on in their short stint with NBC, 2 months after flipping from ABC.), courtesy of Michael Pannoni.

He has some other recordings from this TV station, but this is the earliest recording of Ch. 17 in Columbia, MO that I could find.

Barbara Matusow describes that transitional format in her book The Evening Stars: The Making of the Network News Anchor (1983):

 

"[Arledge's] most immediate problem was what to do the incompatible team of Barbara Walters and Harry Reasoner. Arledge's initial move was to buy time by making format changes designed to minimize their impact on the Evening News while he was working on a replacement formula. "Two-shots" were eliminated, meaning that Walters and Reasoner were not shown together on the screen, and something called a "whip-around" was introduced -- correspondents handing off their reports directly to each other instead of going back to the anchor for introductions. Subanchors began to appear: Frank Reynolds was featured prominently in Washington, as was Peter Jennings from various European capitals."

 

(In this case, Barbara Walters was off and Sam Donaldson served as the Washington subanchor. When WNT premiered, of course, it was permanently anchored by Reynolds in Washington, Max Robinson in Chicago, and Jennings in London. It's also interesting to note that the distinctive red corner stripe was introduced before WNT was launched.)

It looks like btm0815ma just hit the jackpot when it comes to rare stuff. You can watch the CBS Evening News broadcast from 6-24-1974 which includes at 29:11 a news open for WLAC-TV from that date.

That WLAC open is awesome. Makes me sad to think how much cool local TV goodness has been lost to the ages.
