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.

A full hour block of CNN Headline News from July 13, 1987 - the day that CNN and HN moved from its Techwood Drive studios to its then-new location at CNN Center:

KTVU Noon 7/1993 - from the early-mid 90s period they used Brave New World for the Noon and early evening weekend newscast

 

 

They were still using tube cameras in 1993? Look at that characteristic “smearing” of the ambulance lights at the beginning.

I'd be willing to bet that was stringer footage. Amusing to see this top story since I live a few blocks from this spot (which is still a taqueria); a good reminder of how much the hood has changed since the early 90s.

A full newscast of WRGB from March 4, 2000 (10 days before I was born!). The weatherman is Mike Augustyniak (now at WCCO). This was also in the early days of WRGB’s usage of the CBS Enforcer theme.

KLAS 80s Newscast

 

 

 

Rare find of a station that ran Telesound And You + Signature together like KPIX and WCIX - some cuts I haven't heard since the 80s there.

 

Looks like someone at KLAS posted a bumper a while back

KHON Channel 2 Honolulu, HI: 1982 news brief with Barbara Tanabe, running down some of the stories for an upcoming late edition (from when that was the NBC station of Honolulu [it's now Fox, and the current NBC, KHNL, is part of the Hawaii News Now duopoly w/CBS station KGMB])

A news close from WFLA in 1995. Now, the set they were using, I have no memory of. It's a combination of the 1988 news desk with a backdrop that sorta resembles the 1993 overhaul. A temporary set, maybe?
