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.

Let’s see how long NMSA will take to edit it.

 

I actually messaged the NMSA a few years back that the theme likely debuted in 1982 based on the "Great Moments" promo campaign.

Of course it had to be a newscast with a special close AND a missing open... That seems to match a known lost generation of KLAS opens.

From 1983, the Chicago Emmy Awards, aired on WBBM. Not particularly notable, except for the conductor of the event's live band, conducted by THE Dick Marx. Less than a decade earlier, Dick created the CBS station's iconic theme song.

Here's a rare news clip from Indianapolis' only but short lived Univision station, WIIH. The newscast was provided by then CBS now CW affiliate station, WISH-TV.

 

Here's another clip from the same station.

Here's the open from the first episode of "informed Sources" in 1984 on WYES, in which anchors and reporters from various media in New Orleans discuss issues affecting the area. Marcia Kavanaugh Radlauer is still at WYES. You can rewind to the very beginning to see the current open., in which the theme has not changed one bit. The show still airs weekly on WYES.

KPNX, Phoenix, 1979:

 

That can't be 1-18-79... the call sign change from KTAR-TV was midyear. Apparently this is January 11, 1980...which puts it at the start of one of Arizona's worst flood years. Things would soon be worse for Phoenix...

Here's a real rarity from ewjxn, the first 5 minutes of KCBD's Eyewitness 11ews (misspelling intended) from June 4, 1979. The station ID also mentions their then satellite station KSWS-TV 8 in Roswell (now KOB satellite KOBR), which aired their own newscast in place of KCBD's called the New Mexico Report.
