Uh, hate to say this, right show, wrong network..Canada Tonight was BCTV/ONtv (Part of the WIC stations group before they got bought by GLOBAL and became CH)

Not CBC..

 

Thanks...dunno that much about Canadian television. Still an interesting capsule of time.

And, at the time, CBC's flagship newscast was the ill-fated "Prime Time News" with Peter Mansbridge and Pamela Wallin. "The National" was still on the air, but on Newsworld.

 

PTN was at 9:00 pm opposite very heavy competition on CTV and the U.S. networks, while The National was still at 10:00 pm. Later in the fall, PTN returned to 10:00 with Mansbridge as solo anchor.

 

In the fall of 1995, after slumping ratings, CBC ended the pain once and for all by firing Wallin and returning The National back to the mother network where it belonged.

Here's a clip from the Bay Area's KTVU from February 1987 featuring "2 at Noon" and "The 10 O'Clock News". It features a story about a young boy who received a heart transplant. But that is not the reason why I posted this link. This like features KTVU greats Barbara Simpson, Elaine Corral, Dennis Richmond, and Leslie Griffith in their younger years. If that's not enough, there's a short cut-off Late Show with Joan Rivers...and check out the 2 at Noon and 10 O'Clock News opens. You may have seen them elsewhere, but they are still a hit!

 

 

Now for all you L.A. News fans out there, myself included...here are some ads from KCOP including those legendary News 13 ads with country music dj and KCOP voice Harry Newman.
