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

WTCN, Twin Cities, 10 p.m., 1979:

 

 

The anchor, Stan Borman, is perhaps best known for playing a newscaster in The China Syndrome. I suppose this casting decision is one reason why the movie's portrayal of local TV news feels so real:

As a footnote, when the hit television show “The Streets of San Francisco” was filmed in the Bay Area in the 70s, one of the stars — Michael Douglas — watched Bohrman on KPIX. Douglas later cast Bohrman in his movie called The China Syndrome”. Bohrman played a television news anchor.

 

Separately, no lower thirds from WTCN in that newscast? Just saw them in the network piece and the health report (syndicated?). 

 

Did Stan last at WTCN until Magers came on the scene?

Here's a tribute to Bohrman (sorry for my earlier misspelling of his name) aired on KPIX in 2018:

KIMA News at 6, 2/19/2003 (Craig Galbraith, Roxeanne Vainuku, Stu Seibel, Alan Sillence)

At the end of this compilation of commercials from 2005 is another KIMA News open, when they adopted the 'NewsWatch' branding for a couple of years before switching to Action News. Most of the Fisher-type graphics stayed around, but the announcer changed. Long time KIMA announcer Joseph Litzinger (deceased in 2014) was on the first video and had done IDs and advertisements for KIMA Radio and TV since the 1960s.

Two more videos for this rainy Saturday (i.e., relief to douse out nearby wildfires!)

 

KNSD News San Diego Weekend Edition, 6/30/1991 - over-the-air signal so it's fuzzy

I also have the first 90 seconds of KREM News at Ten on KAYU Fox 28, taped 1/8/1992. Now-Mayor Nadine Woodward and Charles Rowe are the anchors...they were together for several years on channel 2

'Today' (1982). Loving how sped up the format is at this point compared to the Brokaw & Walters years. Not too slow and not the ADHD level pacing of today. It also seems that they were frequently experimenting with sets. I've seen the blue version of this current set before but  wasn't aware there was a brown variation as well. The sets from the late 70s up until the O.G. studio 1a (which was awesome) were all very well done.
