WBBM The great Chicago flood of 1992



9/11 coverage from Knoxville, TN





Didn't realize WBBM did a copycat of the KTRK talent open with accents of the city names background from some other ABC O&Os (KGO, and one or two others I think).

A 10PM news teaser open & first few minutes of a 10PM newscast from KMTV-TV, Ch. 3 in Omaha, NE, from February 4, 1986. This was about 5 months before the switched networks from NBC to CBS. I found this, recorded in Beta III speed, on a Scotch Beta Tape that I got off of eBay.

NEW to YT: Weekend Today (2003) David Bloom death, the same morning. It's nice that they brought in the weekday anchors to hold down the fort with Soledad after Bloom's tragic passing.

'Today' 1963 (3 days after JFK's Murder). What's striking is the novel like descriptive language from Hugh Downs concerning the pomp and circumstance of the president's funeral! You just don't get this anymore!
