Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)


Recommended Posts

About 280 unique entries in my collection of WLS opens, and this is one I've never seen before. The station had used, to my knowledge, little more than a flash of the logo over a wide shot of the set as an open until their WPVI-style 1992 revamp. This clip shows us something rather different. (12/27/78)

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

From 1987, local restaurant owner Nelson Fuller (interviewed in the 1978 piece) being interviewed by WVEC's Sherri Brennan

It's the KAPP Local News Hour, taped December 2nd, 1998. Dana Cowley and Issa Arnita are the anchors:

And a NEW find! About half of KNXV News 15 at 10, from February 28th, 1997, same day as the North Hollywood Shootout. If I recall, this is my first newscast find from Phoenix.

In 1997, KNXV used "Live, Local, Late-Breaking," as its slogan, while its competitor KPHO opted for a completely different approach -- "Local, Live, Late-Breaking." Who says that consultant-driven local news is beholden to formulas?

@8Viewer Odd but Interesting, WTEN an ABC affiliate using the CBS enforcer theme! 

 

Even more big name anchors filling in on the evening news:

Ted Koppel in for Frank Reynolds:

Connie Chung in for Peter Jennings:

Katie Couric in for Tom Brokaw

9/11/01: Live with Regis & Kelly featuring WABC news coverage

 

Off the satellite feed, I see. As WABC was into live coverage, I doubt this got aired on any of their affiliate stations that day. Amazing to see this.

The only portion of Live's 9/11 episode I've seen was in the 9/17/01 episode intro in which aired clips of this. It was up on You Tube years ago.

 

I wondered why they went ahead with the show. Was it because the studio audience was there, for west coast stations, or they expected to air this the following day? According to an interview with Kelly Ripa they did so with the assumption that they wern't pre-empted in other markets and they continued until stations across the country took over coverage.

Did they air on any UPN, WB, or IND stations that likely didn't have a news department? Or Fox stations? I'm not sure when the Fox network started relaying Fox News Channel to all their stations on 9/11...was it when the 2nd tower got hit?

WTSP (ABC) from 9/10/94 with a CBS This Morning promo touting the program's switch from WTVT to WTSP which took place on 9/12/94. I also didn't realize The Price Is Right moved over well before the official switch on 12/12/94.

I remember when WTSP showed the MDA Labor Day telethon that year they were advertising CBS This Morning and The Price Is Right moving on September 12th. Only the network morning shows and morning daytime shows which was only TPIR and ABC’s Mike and Maty at that time switched channels prior to December 12th.
