Here, now, the news - part one of a full 6pm WABC Eyewitness News broadcast from 1980 featuring the legendary anchor team of Roger Grimsby and Bill Beutel. It might look plain, but its beauty is apparent once you look deeper.
The first time I saw classic WABC, I would classify as a religious experience. More information is given in this one hour of news than in the 8 hours most stations do per day. And I don't mean health or beauty tips or constant weather hits. Useful, interesting information that tells me what is going on in the world at large.
You know, actual news.
I put this up in the vain hope that some news director somewhere will see this and understand how news is supposed to look and sound like.
