He had a weekend wrestling show from his wrestling academy and provided lighter reporting pieces on the Friday Night High School football show. In this clip, he profiles the tuba player of Winston Churchill High School marching band... and even attempts to conduct.

This clip is from a segment of the short-lived Pat Sajak Show which aired nightly on CBS. Here, Pat takes a break from hosting and visits one of the first taping sessions of the daytime version of Wheel of Fortune which had just then moved into CBS Television City after being based out of NBC's Burbank Studios for years. If you're curious: Pat's sidekick is none other than well known Nashville anchorman Dan Miller.

CBS Evening News Long Close, 4/2/2016
 
01:01
Just happened to record this tonight. Credit sequences like these are all too rare on the local, much less the network level as of late. Always a pleasure to hear the resurrected CBS Evening News theme from Trivers Myers Music at length. Recorded from KMOV in St. Louis.

KIII "Hello South Texas" Promos, 2009
 
01:31
Here are a couple of new station promos produced by the ABC affiliate in Corpus Christi. There was a relatively quick turnover on this specific version, as the parade occured about a week prior to when these were recorded! They air fairly frequently, popping up at least once during each newscast it seems. The music itself has been used on the station in the past, and is still used during the holiday season each year for overseas personnel who send their greetings back to family in the area. It is also part of a package that has been used around the country over the past several decades, composed by Gari Communications and sung by vocalist Florence Warner.

KHOU Stands For Houston Promo - Lyle Lovett (HD)
 
01:31
This is another spot from the relatively new "KHOU Stands for Houston" promo campaign - this one featuring hometown star Lyle Lovett. Both versions of the promo campaign's primary spots can be seen regularly when the station briefly leaves regular programming (I can't call it a sign-off) on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

KBMT 12 Sign-off, 10/27/2001
 
02:50
A relatively early sign off, right around 12:05 AM or thereabouts on Saturday Morning during that time. Pardon the tape distortion with this one, the tape actually split not too long ago when I advanced it a bit further.

WAGM-TV Sign On, 2005
 
01:08
The sign on to one of the smallest market network affiliates in the US. At the time this was recorded, this sequence hadn't been updated to reflect the fact they'd dropped all NBC programming and I'm not certain how many of the translators are still in service.

Marvin Zindler handed out the Blue Ribbon Awards each year to restaurants who had consistently kept their facilities clean. They became a weeklong feature during his reports and in later years, they featured Marvin with a bevy of beauty queens to add to the presentation. This clip takes a look at some of the outtakes from preparing the segments.

Newest version of the legalese sequence seen during the late night hours, each night. Not only has it been updated for HD, but they actually got someone to sponsor it. Even better, the sponsor's ads were produced in the 80s and weren't well preserved. Those will probably be uploaded in the future.

It is the sister station to WIVT, the ABC affiliate in the market and simulcasts several of its' newscasts. This is also the reason it uses Frank Gari's "News Station" as the music piece.
