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.

Thanks to Mr. Sloan we have more OKC TV stuff uncovered.


First we go to the Station "Where the News Comes First.. 24 Hours a Day.", that's KFOR in 1992.

In this instance they have dropped "News Team 4" for "News Channel 4" but kept the same theme song they've used (at that time) since the 1990 callsign change. And yes that is Bob Bruce before he left for what is now known KSAZ in 1992.


Next up, KOCO and KWTV (and yes this was during Jon Slater's first stint here in OKC prior to going up the Turner to Tulsa):

That theme music was also used on WROC NewsEight during the final two years as an NBC affiliate. The music changed when WROC became a CBS affiliate. Also I didn't know Sam Brown did KDKA Pittsburgh. Brown anchored the news in Knoxville, Tennessee at WATE ABC6

Found this gem, that I had been looking for YEARS, in Mike Parson's YouTube Channel. This rare cut of KNBC's LA Groove Theme used for closing the Channel 4 News weekend.
