WIIC Channel 11 - 6:30 News Roundup With Len Johnson (1962)

Views: 8007

Exactly 56 years ago today (at 6:30 PM)!

Here's an incredible find - usually anything this old, if I am lucky to find it, is on a 16mm kinescope (remember, in 1962 Quad tape itself was only 6 years old). And even though it's from a Pittsburgh station, it has a very strong Chicago connection, as it is anchored by Len Johnson, whose voice (if not face) will no doubt be very recognizable to people who watched WGN in the 60s, 70s, and very early 80s. He was one of the ub...

Here's the first part of an edition of Newscope on WFLD Channel 32, anchored by Patrick Muldowney. Also featuring Harlan Draeger of the Chicago Daily News, Richard Foster of the Chicago Sun-Times (both papers, like WFLD, were owned by Field Enterprises), sportscaster Dave Martin, and WA9RTP ham operators Jim Roper(?) and Dick Cox.

Views: 2194

Here's the first ten minutes of The Captioned ABC News on WTTW Channel 11, which was a replay of the evening's edition of World News Tonight that had aired earlier (at 5:30pm) on WLS Channel 7. The anchors were Max Robinson in Chicago, Peter Jennings in London (on assignment) and Frank Reynolds in Washington, with commentary by Howard K. Smith, and Barbara Walters with a special report (alas, of these five, only Reynolds and Robinson are the ones with significant airtime; the o...

WGN Channel 9 - Len Johnson and the News (Part 2, 1965)

Views: 5801

Here's Part 2 (the final part) of an incredibly rare find - an edition of Len Johnson and the News on WGN Channel 9 from 1965! This was a forerunner to their overnight Night Beat newscast that ran from the late-sixties well into the 1980s.

You'll notice that this was during that awkward transition phase from black-and-white to color with most of the broadcast appearing in black-and-white, but then interspersed by random color commercials and a few color slides.

(By this time...

Views: 1452

Not from Chicago, but one which, "even then," had overtaken Chicago as the "Second City" in population: a clip of the ending minutes of the early edition of NewsCenter4 with anchors Paul Moyer and Kelly Lange on KNBC Channel 4 in Los Angeles. Also features Paul Dandridge, John Marshall and Boyd Matson. This was on the tail end of a 3/4" Umatic tape where something was recorded over most of this. (A side note: The weather at this point in time was handled by a young chap named Pat ...
