KNBC Channel 4 - Ending of NewsCenter4 - Early Edition with Paul Moyer & Kelly Lange and Editorial Reply (1977)
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 ...

Field Communications - Internal Sales Tape (Part 1, 1980)
Here is Part 1 of an excellent time capsule of the five Field Communications family of independent television stations. Field Communications was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Field Enterprises - which at one time owned the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper. Chock full of vintage station id's, bumpers, slides, logos, jingles, promos, you name it!
This presentation includes: ratings and audience share summaries, mention of Field Spot Sales joining forces with The Katz Agency to form I...
WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Black Hawks Vs. Boston Bruins (Excerpts, 1976)
Here are some selected excerpts of the Chicago Black Hawks / Boston Bruins game on WFLD Channel 32, played at Boston Garden in Boston, MA. This was from an original 2" Quad master tape, and though the "recorded date" says 3-31-76, this game was broadcast on 3-25-76. I think someone, perhaps Don Shannon (who directed this telecast) made this compilation of excerpts from the original tape(s) on the 31st (or perhaps it was done live? That wouldn't account for the 3-31-76 date though) In any ...
WFLD Channel 32 - Newscope - "The Blizzard of '67" and Other Stories (Part 3, 1967)
Here's Part 3 of an edition of Newscope on WFLD Channel 32, anchored by Patrick Muldowney.
NOTE: This is the earliest footage currently known to exist of a WFLD broadcast (albeit via kinescope); the sound heard in the background on the right channel is of time code as heard on 3/4" Umatic tapes. (this is not our museum's transfer)
Dave then ends his sports report and goes back to Patrick, who mentions that 32 was the first ...
WFLD Channel 32 - Chicago Stuff (Part 3, 1985)
Here's a lost Koz Klassic! - Chicago Stuff - was it a failed pilot? A consolation prize from Fox Television for cancelling Son of Svengoolie a month later? A half-remembered dream? It only aired once, at 10pm on a Sunday in December 1985 - so you couldn't be blamed for not knowing it existed. (I only heard rumors) In any case, it's a neat little package of Rich's schtick, so just think of it as an extremely early episode of The Koz Zone. :-)
Field Communications - Internal Sales Tape (Part 2, 1980)
Here is Part 2, the final part, of an excellent time capsule of the five Field Communications family of independent television stations. Field Communications was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Field Enterprises - which at one time owned the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper. Chock full of vintage station id's, bumpers, slides, logos, jingles, promos, you name it!
