It's Conneticuit News 30 from WVIT in 1997:

 

 

Just came across this video when going down a '90s WVIT rabbit hole on YouTube. Was going to post it here but I see I don't have to. I was shocked to see this totally random newscast today. The townhouse fire at the end of the clip was in the complex my family lived in at the time, we were two townhouses down from the one that caught fire. And that's my dad who Tom Monahan asked if the neighbor was a smoker. I remember that from when it aired back then, but I definitely wasn't expecting to see that clip on YouTube almost 23 years later. Pretty cool.

The last few minutes of a weekend WBKO newscast from December 1986, watch to the end for a close using a good cut of the WEVU/KWWL 80s theme:

2/29/92 KNBC Weekend clip - didn't realize they kept the jazzy sax close into 1992. Guess it changed when the set got updated later in the year.

ABC WNT, Thurs. June 14, 1979, w/Max Robinson in Washington, and Peter Jennings, Barbara Walters and Frank Reynolds in Vienna (Frank is in a studio in Vienna that I don't think we've ever seen before)...

Huh. In between Scott Chapin and Nick Michaels, WBBM had Vic Caroli do the opens:

Guess they thought Chapin was too obnoxious? I don’t blame them. ‘BBM made lots of bad decisions in the 90s.

Holy crap.

 

Caroli makes Chapin sound like Erik Thompson. That was a sign they dug DEEPER into tabloid, not a regression.

I don't know that the WBBM VO switch had much to do with content, at that point. Chapin began working for WFLD around that time, and WBBM likely wanted someone that can bring a similar growl to the position. At a later point, WMAQ would bring in Charlie Van Dyke, when they were moving to a more tabloid format. A lot of copycats in Chicago in the mid-90's.

WDAY Channel 6 (ABC Fargo, ND): 1999 morning edition (First News); loved how the opening used the sunrise motif to indicate "morning edition"

In things you don't expect to see often: a news story and tease (with The News Image bed) from WNWO "24 Newswatch" in 1989. The Harry-set logo from the WDHO era was still in use.

Apropos of this week's events, here's a look at the last time the POTUS was hospitalized for several days...

 

It's 1981, and CNN interrupts a report about China with some dramatic news out of Washington:
