Here's the ending minute of WFLD News Headlines featuring Kathy McFarland. By 1983 WFLD had dropped the "Newscene" moniker apparently, and went with the generic "WFLD News Headlines". It also stopped being listed as a separate program airing at 9:55pm. Stories include:

Ending of a story on street improvements.

Fire claims the life of 2 people at 1421 South Ashland Avenue

Chicago Board of Elections rules that Iola McGowan not eligible to run for Alderman in the 29th Ward.

Illinois Bell reduces rate hike.

County Building judges performs numerous weddings today

Kathy gives the Weather Forecast (shouldn't that be Weather Pastcast?)

"M*A*S*H is next..."

This aired on local Chicago TV Monday, February 14th 1983.

About The Museum of Classic Chicago Television:

The Museum of Classic Chicago Television's primary mission is the preservation and display of off-air, early home videotape recordings (70s and early 80s, primarily) recorded off of any and all Chicago TV channels; footage which would likely be lost if not sought out and preserved digitally. Even though (mostly) short clips are displayed here, we preserve the entire broadcasts in our archives - the complete programs with breaks (or however much is present on the tape), for historical purposes. For information on how to help in our mission, to donate or lend tapes to be converted to DVD, and to view more of the 4,000+ (and counting) video clips available for viewing in our online archive, please visit us at:
