  1. Recent finds! WTKR 11pm open from January 30, 1996 WAVY 6pm open from June 27, 1998 WAVY 11pm open from October 28, 1999 WVBT 10pm open from November 18, 2001 WVEC 11pm open from January 31, 2002 (they mistakenly cued the 5pm open!) Most of WTKR's 11pm from March 27, 2005 Much more from HRVA to come!
  2. WECT's 30th anniversary special from 1984.
  3. Some more WIS from 1991 for your viewing pleasure. A full 11pm newscast from March 17, 1991 A special report from earlier in the day, covering President Bush's visit to Sumter: A partial newscast from April 12th, a little over a week out from dropping this look for the Spirit of Carolina theme:
  4. A weekend edition of a WIS News Nightcast open from April 28, 1991 - this jcbD graphics package less than a week old! Anchored by current WJW reporter/anchor Roosevelt Leftwich. I have the open from the next night with the weeknight crew which I'll be uploading too.
  5. And here it is! Someone must've listened
  6. Here's a WBTW weekend 6pm news open and commercials from November 1994. More to come!
  7. The WCNC Real News open sample on the NMSA comes from an open digitaldave1982 uploaded to YouTube years ago - I think it was dated 1990 or so, it's long gone unfortunately. There are a few clips of them using Real News on YT if you dig around.
  8. The second half of WFMY's noon newscast from July 24, 1995
  9. As I’m aware, all of phillyvideofan’s content is lost media as far as I know. I remember hearing years ago (from them?) that the source tapes were lost/destroyed and original files lost as well. It’s a shame because there were several videos on the channel special to me, in particular some WECT, WWAY & WBTW news clips from the early/mid 90s.
  10. WAVY 6pm news from August 1990. My first time seeing a 6pm open with Wall to Wall/The Team!
  11. I, too, thought the same thing... "A new set already? Seems like the old one just got finished!" But 6 years is a good run for the old set. Time's just moving faster, I suppose. It's about the average lifespan of most of WTKR's sets the past ~30 years 2016-2022 set 2000-2016 set (with numerous facelifts) 1995-2000 set 1992-1995 set (with a major rehaul in 1994)
  12. Sony as a whole seems to be one of the most strict about copyright. I had a commercial compilation with a 1997 Burger King commercial that used Foreigner’s “Urgent” that got blocked by Sony Music (no strikes). I think it’s become common knowledge that Jeopardy eps are a no-no on YouTube.
  13. 6:30am segment of WAVY News 10 Today from August 1994
  14. That logo was much better as a circle. Never liked the rectangle treatment all that much.
  15. A few finds for your viewing pleasure: WCBS noon open, June 14, 2000 KCBS 11pm open, September 10, 2002 KOMO 11pm, February 10, 1999
  16. I think I remember seeing/hearing this many years ago. From one of my tape finds, the national satellite feed of WNBC's version of "We're 4 New York"
  17. I’ve been looking for this WWAY era for a long time and finally found it! Commercial breaks and 11pm news open from December 1997, with Millennium 3 and graphics from jcbD
  18. The first few minutes of a WCBD 11pm newscast from April 1997, not long after the switch to the Media General 'clouds' look. Nice to have a copy of this that isn't potato quality!
  19. It appears the WLWC newscast faced the same fate as the WTKR-produced 10pm newscast on WGNT after being acquired by Paramount - they didn't want news on their O&O stations.
  20. No worries. I don’t think I have anything else from Columbia to upload, but I have a few mid-90s era clips from WCBD, WCIV, WTAT and WLOS to come.
  21. A one-of-a-kind find... a complete 1996 10pm newscast from WTAT, produced by WCSC
  22. Here’s a look at a WOLO newscast in 1999, using a ripoff of the Media General ‘clouds’ open of the time
  23. WTVD 11pm newscast, February 22, 1996 First few minutes of WECT's 11pm newscast, February 9, 1997
  24. The first of a few new finds... A look at WWAY in 1989!
