NBC Network - News Update With Floyd Kalber (Tiny Excerpt, 1971?)

Here's a very tiny snippet of a what appears to be a network news update from WMAQ Channel 5's legendary "Big Tuna," Floyd Kalber. Besides anchoring WMAQ's newscasts, Mr. Kalber for years was the anchor of weekday five-minute news updates that aired on the NBC Network at 11:55am CT (12:55pm ET). This in all likelihood was the last regularly-scheduled network program to originate from Chicago.
Based on Mr. Kalber's attire, plus the background behind him and the use of Bookman Italic for the lower third (which makes reference to NBC News), this most likely aired on local Chicago TV in 1971.
