A big find from the Tampa/St. Petersburg market: WTSP from December 11, 1994, promoting the "Big Switch" from ABC to CBS. There's also a WTOG newscast from 1991 later in this video:

KIMA NewsBeat at 11 open, 11/17/1994

Who is this lady subbing in for Lloyd Robertson on CTV News? 9/23/1996 from CHEK-6 Victoria...first-ever find from this station!

plus part of the 11:30PM news from CHEK-6 - Meribeth Burton is the anchor, she worked at CHEK for years, later became a spokesperson for BC Transit. My guess is someone lived in Port Angeles, Bellingham, or Port Townsend where CHEK was available on cable (this was found in Wenatchee at a thrift store in 2021). It looks too 'clean' to be from rabbit ears. But who knows? Bellingham/Victoria FMs are super-strong in Mukilteo, Edmonds, etc. with the line-of-sight along the water...
