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.

KOMO April 1987 6:30pm preshow and open

 

 

No talent open - hard to find much from the mid 80s KOMO era - great theme from Dan Dean - an 'indie' classic right up there with the indie KCRA and KDKA themes around the same time

 

July 1986 11pm open

And while we are in Arizona, ewjxn just uploaded another 1996 edition of KSAZ's Arizona Prime News -- at least the first 30 minutes of it. This was after the station adopted the Fox 10 News brand in other dayparts (and the CBS-era "10" logo was retired), but Arizona Prime News would remain essentially unchanged until it became Fox 10 News at 9 a few months later:

KOVR 13 in 1994 proving why they've consistently been the cellar dweller in the Sacramento market.  SMH.

KCRA 1985... Where The Karaoke Comes First.  Somebody needs to tell them this whole "Singing Machine" fad will never catch on! 😜

Good to see the old KCRA neon lit up @ 3:31.   It needs to be restored and moved to the front of the building.

David Ono at KOVR, while Ellen Leyva (then Elena Leyva) was at rival KXTV

 

 

I didn't know these two were competing against each other in Sacramento BEFORE heading to Los Angeles to anchor together at ABC 7 Eyewitness News

A slides-only newscast from WGN on New Year’s Day, 1979. After that we get a religious message, followed by the sign-off (they were only off the air for about 30 minutes on this day).

Cool WXYZ clips - that transition from the 5-6pm with the 6pm anchors walking on set is a gem. Probably the most interesting dual set I've seen - lots of variety in shots.

 

And mixing it up with original Cool Hand Luke and the Gari cuts is another nice touch.

Three new Hawaiian clips from Sloan's TV Airchive:

First, KHON Honolulu (when that was the NBC station of Hawaii): morning edition for Fri. Dec. 4, 1992, w/Leslie Wilcox

 

 

KITV Honolulu: News 4 weekend early edition w/Dick Allgire for Sun. Dec. 6, 1992

 

 

And one more from KHON: also from Sun. Dec. 6, 1992, weekend evening edition w/Barbara Wallace and Kirk Matthews, and Bob Hogue on sports (this after his stint at KCRA Channel 3 in Sacramento): Barbara apparently also does the weather report here
