Here's the pre-show break for Channel 8 Reports on WFLA Channel 8 in Tampa / St. Petersburg, Florida. The anchor was Arch Deal.

This newscast was transferred from a 2" Quad tape that was found in, of all places, the coat closet of former Chicago TV news anchor Jim Ruddle.

Includes:

Brief shot of "Dolphin Enterprises" bumper (indicating the end of an edition of The Jack Paar Program, whose final season this was)

"This Has Been a Color Presentation of the NBC Television Network" bumper (voiceover by Fred Collins) (however, this is presented in black-and-white)

Promo for NBC Saturday Night at the Movies presentation ("In Color") of "The Rainmaker" (1956, starring Katharine Hepburn and Burt Lancaster) for 8:30pm (7:30pm Central time) (voiceover by Bill Wendell)

Arch Deal previewing the upcoming edition of Channel 8 Reports with teases of two items: Tampa honoring a port, and a slain policeman (dig the multiple images that emanate behind him)

Commercial: Del Webb's Sun City community - 1 mile west of Highway 301, between Tampa and Bradenton (voiceover by ??)

Commercial: Wrigley's Doublemint Gum - "Doublemint Time with Carol & Larry"

Station ID slide with "TV Channel 8" jingle

This aired on local Tampa / St. Petersburg, Florida TV on Friday, January 22nd 1965 a little before 11pm.
