Found this while goofing around online this afternoon the "Big Switch" in Denver, a throwback segment from KUSA-TV:  (Too bad they don't show the Phil Hartman promo that aired right before the first 9NEWS@5 as an NBC station). 

 

 

Staying on topic of the 25th anniversary of the switch, the NBC peacock flew from KCNC to KUSA, of course.
As for KCNC being with CBS...what was the FIRST CBS program of the day? On KCNC's First Day as a CBS affiliate? What Else? Sunday Morning from CBS News...hosted by Charles Osgood (at that time). Then-entertainment reporter Greg Moody (aka Critic at Large) gave his take on the switch for his station.

I miss those days when TV stations did the humorous compare/contrast promos (counting THIS promo for ABC7 Detroit). WXYZ threw in a little humor (great Pinocchio reference) to illustrate what rival stations claim to be and what others say they do. In other words, how other stations talk the talk. Plus, throwing in truthful clips to demonstrate how ABC 7 Action News walks the walk. Another ABC station did the same kind of promos in the 80s, as shown in the first few clips from the YouTube channel of former sportscaster Ron Futrell of ABC13 Las Vegas

From a group of commercials I got in a trade that came from a September 11, 1987 airing of Jeopardy, this has WJLA anchor Renee Poussaint promoting the D.C. ABC affiliate broadcasting their late newscasts with closed-captioning.

No one is forcing anyone to watch any of the clips post in this thread, but everything related to a video posted this afternoon has been hidden. In the future, if anyone is ever questioning whether they should post something with potentially sensitive content, feel free to run it by a moderator.
