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.

Ah yes, the Clarendon package! Very...different look for local TV.

 

The theme they were using in the mid-2000s has to be another piece of David Miller work, even if the NMSA has no listing.

Well, KTVK is very different station; though I'm sure you knew that already. 🙂

ABC News coverage of The '82 Vote (a midterm election to determine House and Senate seats and state governors/lieutenant governors [state equivalent of President/VP], which is why this election coverage was from Washington, unlike Presidential election coverage from New York)

Some WTMJ imaging from the last weeks of NewsChannel 4, the following month, Today's TMJ 4 would be born:

KSAT 12 News tonight before they introduced the famous tabloid open for that newscast:

ABC News midterm election coverage of The '78 Vote; has Frank Reynolds in New York, Max Robinson in Chicago, Howard K. Smith in Washington, et al.

 

Here's what the Chicago bureau looked like on that '78 midterm coverage (wide shot showing more than we usually see):

Some Billings news from 1985, starting with a rare open of KULR's Straight 8 NewsService, seems like many small town ABC affiliates used Cascom Select Effects in the 80s:

WMAQ, Chicago; 6 p.m., 1997 -- w/ an unusual theme (an obscure cut of Newswire?) just days before the station adopted the Cheatwood-era Newschannel 5 branding:

The first edition of Headline News after the big 2001 revamp:

 

 

Nice, I always have fond memories of that era. I didn't realize that the format launched without Robin Meade at the helm in the mornings. I just looked it up, and apparently Robin Meade joined CNN Headline News on 9/11/01 of all days. What the heck.

Is that a sports cut of the theme because of the Bulls in the NBA Finals? Kinda has a sports cut vibe to it.

@WWUpdate@Spring Rubber  The theme appears to be a custom "newswire" cut and mixout variation originally made for a series of promos with the tagline: Committed to Chicago. You can make out the newswire audio logo towards the end for a sports promo in the first commerical break at 9:42 and in the morning show tease during the second comm. break at 16:26 in the 1997 clip above.

 

Here's another mix variation of it for a 1995 "Commited to Chicago" news promo.  There may be more promos on Youtube.
