@WWUpdate@Spring Rubber  The theme appears to be a custom "newswire" cut and mixout variation originally made for a series of promos with the tagline: Committed to Chicago.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.

Interesting! So do you think that they adopted this cut as a transitional theme ahead of the Newschannel 5 rebrand?

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.

Sure seems like it... it's almost as if they decided to use a heavier drum mix of the cut as a transitional theme leading up to the rebrand. It's a lot more in your face soundiing compared to the normal newswire cuts.

We take you back to 1990 when Mid State Television, Inc., the owners of W50BE (now WOHZ-CD), launched a news operation. It was known as "The Evening Journal." Here is the very first newscast they did as "TV50 Mansfield."

WMAQ, Chicago; 4:30pm, 1986, when Warner Saunders was the sports anchor:

This promo has reminded me of the sung segment open used by KTVK in the early years of Good Evening Arizona before extended CNN segments:

 

"Bringing you the world, we're the home of CNN!"

 

I wonder if that jingle has ever popped up on YouTube?

 

And the clip above means we now have this as well: https://youtu.be/aO22akMfbjw?t=1724

And speaking of Chris Curle, here she is co-anchoring Take Two on CNN with her husband Don Farmer back in 1982. The topic is local TV news consultants and Al Primo, the father of Eyewitness News, is the guest:

WSB-TV 1992- Noon News w/ Chris Curle [Justin Farmer's mother]  Vic Carter  [Now at WJZ]

 

 

Curle's husband Don Farmer co-anchored with Monica Kaufman at night. Curle and Farmer went to WSB ABC 2 after their stint at CNN across town. These two lovebirds were part of the network's first news team since CNN's inception in 1980.

CNN had TWO husband/wife anchor teams:

- Dave Walker and Lois Hart (who returned to northern California to anchor at KCRA)

- Chris Curle and Don Farmer (who stayed in Atlanta to anchor at WSB ABC 2)
 

Of course, Dave Walker and Lois Hart was the first team to kick things off on June 1, 1980. Throughout the first hour, the second team Curle and Farmer explained how CNN worked.
