Here's a complete 1982 WGN newscast with John Drury from 1982 with INN. This was Drury's last stint at WGN before he rejoined WLS in 1984. He started out as an anchor at WBBM in the 1960s, moved to WGN, then WLS, then WGN again, and then spent the final 18 years of his career back at WLS.

Love that they restored the footage quality. I like how dim the old lighting looks, everything in the HD era appears so washed out these days.

KCRA 3 Reports clip takes up most of this clip from 11/7/88, the night before the 1988 election

Reposting this - albeit ghosty/fuzzy, KSTW 11 at 11, 4/30/1995, shortly after switch to CBS. Kevin Reece anchoring.

And NEW overall - Heidi Tauber anchoring KIMA NewsBeat in August 1986.

Here's a WRGB newscast from 1983, when it was a CBS affiliate. It uses the same theme as KOA-TV (now KCNC) in Denver and WNGE (now WKRN) in Nashville had around.

 

That's probably because those three stations were sisters, owned by General Electric at the time.

MP King, a member of YouTube, uploaded a KSLA newscast close from 1984 which features a vocal tag at the end. You can view the news close starting at 0:05.

But wait, there's more. Here is a KSLA news open from 1986 using the Jake Pittman theme which you can see at 3:39.
