TuesdayB! You sir, are the archaeologist of news opens hidden on YouTube.

 

 

 

 

When I saw the WDBJ news open, that music sounded awfully familiar. That was the music heard on KVUE ABC24 Action News in Austin, Texas. That was in 1978. I didn't know that music was part of the TuesdayB news theme music package.

All three anchors would end up at WGME in Portland, with Barr shifting from news to sports. Knight and Canney would go on to found a PR agency. Barr would return to her native Pennsylvania after her Channel 13 stint; she's currently at WGAL.

WKRN Channel 2 (ABC Nashville, TN): Channel 2 News at 5, for Monday, April 21, 1986, when the then-new studio on WKRN debuted (at that time, the de facto evening edition for that Nashville ABC station [de facto because at the end, Bob Mueller thanks viewers for being with him and Anne Holt and the rest here, and says that World News Tonight is to follow, and that he and Anne and the rest would return at 10; WKRN would not have a proper evening edition at 6 until 1988, IIRC])

They might have a record for set and look changes in the 90s - just a couple years later they switched to the antique logo
