Newsmat set, graphics, 7 logo animation

All from a few ABC O&O stations

Before Jim Heath dumped his collection of old Phoenix news opens, that guy had most everything that we had from Phoenix. He has a KPHO promo on there with Scott Chapin's voiceover (in Phoenix, big voiceover names never really caught on with the exceptions of Charlie Van Dyke, Brian Lee and David Kaye – no John Young or Doc Morgan, and John B. Wells, Paul Turner, and Scott had short stints with local stations).
