Got this in a collection from someone who often recorded the syndicated Lawrence Welk show from channel 8 in Cleveland- during this one they let the tape keep running to the end and never taped over it, preserving the news for all eternity.

Newscenter 8 features Kathy Adams and Jim Finerty (who later moved to Sacramento and was on KCRA then KSCH during its first year on the air, but seems to have disappeared since then) sports with Fred Mcleod and weather with Mike Marlier. Top stories include a body found outside the Randal Park Mall (anyone know how this turned out?), a fire and some cool video footage of mall Christmas shopping, a live report from the airport which doesn't go too well due to technical problems.

Clip starts out with the last segment of Lawrence Welk where Santa Claus gives presents (courtesy of Mattel) to the kids of everyone on the show, and after the news you get part of the local "Public Square" news show.

Commercials here are: Serutan, Posh Puffs tissue, Wendy's (with their 70s theme I found a bit creepy), Lemon Fresh Joy with Bob McGrath from Sesame Street (now we know how he paid his bills!), Carpet Barn & Tile House, Downy fabric softener, Jif peanut butter (filmed at a Fry's supermarket) plus lots of Christmas-themed station promos.
