The Chris Sloan archive gravy train keeps giving. There's even some rare KHJ from 1988! The 9:00 VO at the time would later do a lot of ABC Sports work in the late 80s and 90s. The 1:00 one was a

Thanks to Mr. Sloan, Christmas came early for me in terms of late 80s Houston content...   Some observations follow as well.   A weekend newscast & a midday newscast from KHOU

You are in for a special treat, because YouTube user 'VPR2B' has uploaded the KTXL NewsPlus music package from 1981.

It was owned by Scripps. Same “5” and open style as WEWS. Their own sister on the same channel (WMC) used an old-style “5”.

Rare glimpses at the pre-1986 KTVK set at the 4:47 mark and the very last frame of the clip.
