San Francisco TV news in the 1970's.


I was watching a WBBM promo from the late 70s or early 80s and thought "it's just like Anchorman!" and then I thought "well, yeah; that's probably what they were going for."

My favorite is this one from Sacramento in 1982, with a, shall we say, very familiar face to those of you in the New York metropolitan area who listen to him schmooze on certain sports talk radio station. And what's with the afro already?


FTFY



Didn’t see that coming.

Not a FAN listener, I see.  Sacratomato, every LA team is called The Hollywood ______, the New York Icelanders, the whole thing.

I have no idea they get a lot of things wrong.

Well that's fitting. She is an absolute hack.

I agree. :bigass:

Sinclair is a bad company.  And not because is supposedly air "right wing" political commentary.  Because is operates in a customer unfriendly manner, trying to squeeze the last cent it can out of what is an automatically profitable venture, and because it (and it is allowed to, by politicians of all parites) simply cheat the ownership caps. 

It owning the formerly Fox RSNs (probably will use the name Marquee brand name it is using for its new Cubs RSN) is bad news for the consumer, bad news for the ad buyer, and probably bad news for the teams. 

It also probably means the end of Sinclair's over-the-air sideband sports channel Stadium.  No big loss.

Terrific! Ownership is already changing at 2 other stations in Hartford/New Haven. Nexstar owns WTNH-TV (ABC) channel 8 and controls WCTX-TV (MY) channel 59 of New Haven. Nexstar is buying out Tribune. They (Nexstar) had to divest WTIC-TV (FOX) channel 61 of Hartford and "sister" station WCCT-TV (CW) channel 20 of Waterbury to TEGNA. Merideth owns WFSB-TV (CBS) channel 3 of Hartford.

The odd station out? NBC O&O WVIT-TV channel 30 of New Britain.

I know who Steve Somers is. It was easy to pickup WFAN when I lived in Central CT. A few thoughts:

1. I had no idea what he looked like.
2. His voice has changed over the years.
3. Those are some ugly uniforms that the Giants wore in 1982.
