WCAU Channel 10 - News 10 (Opening & Partial First Story, 1977)
Not Chicago, but still interesting: Here's an old opening and partial first story for a local Philadelphia station - WCAU Channel 10 - until the tape runs out. :-( Includes:
Bumper promo for "The Daily Number" (lottery drawing, apparently?)
News 10 opening (with appropriately beepy music) featuring Joan Dinerstein and Ralph Penza giving the headlines of this day - a massive local transit strike is threatened, and an update on the Canary Islands plane crash that killed 583 people. Features Kati Marton reporting on the threat of the Conrail transit strike.
This aired on local Philadelphia TV on Tuesday, March 29th 1977.
