RE: that 2016 open in there that is inspired by the spinning world 80s and statue of liberty mid 80s opens - happened to run into Lester and his wife on the street and told him kudos to whomever did that work - it was really classy, approachable, identifiable work.

 

He was appreciative and liked it too. Wish the open lasted longer. 

idk who opted for it to be replaced by the current 5 second trash intro.

ABC 20/20, most of the broadcast of Fri. Sept. 29, 1989 (lacks opening or closing credits, but does have an intriguing version of the 1989 20/20 title card at commercial breaks; such is attached here)...

Probably posted already but this is the one of the earliest WNBC newscasts I've ever seen online. Eastern Airlines crash & more local news from 1975. Featuring Churck Scaborough, Tom Snyder & Dr. Frank Field

Earliest NYC newscast I've seen overall. WCBS (1965) featuring Robert Trout.

A 90-minute block of CNN HN from April 20, 1988 (not 1985, as the video title incorrectly indicates):

 

CNN HN w/Lynne Russell from Dec. 29, 1992:

CNN HN joined in progress, with the top story being Michael Jordan's first retirement from the NBA on Oct. 30, 1993:

WJBF NewsChannel 6 at 11:00 topicals and open (January 8, 1995)

WABC Channel 7 Eyewitness News Late Edition (March 24, 1991)

 

WNBC News 4 New York at 11:00 (May 11, 1992)

 

That Jay Scott has a great announcer's voice! Rolanda Watts great as always, wish she would have became a bigger newscaster outside of the talk show.

 

WNBC was really graphically solid during the early 1990s.

KNSD 7/39 Eyewitness News? 1989

 

Apparently this open continued to be used to open a rebroadcast, because KNSD was using News San Diego and Groove News by this point.
