Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)


Recommended Posts

9/11/2002 coverage. looks like all big three networks ran an all day long retrospective on the attacks.


NBC Townhall style coverage


Barbara Walters takes over coverage from Peter Jennings (9/14/01) at 3:30:05. Cool to see Barabara at the anchor desk in the 2000s.

KCBS channel 2 Action News 1991


Here’s the link to the original KCBS full newscast- and the date is July 8, 1991, not April 4 (the Christopher Commission started in April 1991, and there’s no way they’d have everything wrapped up in a couple of days…)

Found this recently, a YT that dates to 1980.  *Very rare* end-of-newscast compilation from KLTV.  Most of the content looks to be from different parts of the 1970s.  KLTV was saying goodbye to 3 of their employees: Bobby Perdue, their main news anchor; Steve Lee, sports director/anchor; and Robert Hilliard, photographer/cameraman.  All were departing to start their own local production company.  Many parts of the video are bloopers.  There isn't much online from the early days of KLTV (much less the other Tyler/Longview stations).  Hilliard's YT channel is the source.

(Keen eyes will notice the backdrop of the studio as a hand-me-down from a set previously used by KXAS.  KLTV was using "Move Closer to Your World" as a newscast theme at this time, also.)
