WBBM Channel 2 - "Living History (Bloopers)" (Part 5, 1978/1979)
Here's Part 5 (the final part) of a blooper reel from WBBM Channel 2 which featured all sorts of screw-ups, mix-ups and moments that may or may not have actually made it to broadcast.
This part features (in order of first appearance): Johnny Morris (at first, voice only), Chicago Bears defensive back Doug Plank, Bill Kurtis, Bill Frink of rival WLS Channel 7, Harry Volkman, John Coughlin, Susan Anderson, Bruce Roberts, John Drummond, Carrie Cochran, Muhammad Ali, Mort Crim, Walter Jacobson, Harry Porterfield, a sergeant who worked with once and future Chicago anchor Paul Udell, Gene Siskel, Irv Kupcinet, Walter Cronkite, and the Thomson TTV-1518 with Q-TV VPS-100 prompter.
This ends (finally) with the following closing credits, set to the familiar backing music of Dick Marx's Channel 2 News theme ("I Love Chicago, Chicago My Home"):
