Christmas In July..from WJKW-TV 8 Cleveland (1977)
Recently found this in Google Video..The Entire NewsCenter 8 Newscast at 6PM for Saturday December 24, 1977. This is unique in that the video is in one file. The whole newscast at one time..Including commercials and station promos. Several heartwarming "Seasons Greetings" spots with the staff of TV 8 and their Children. While there was some violence that day the mood was fairly light being that it was Christmas Eve. The talent on hand that day included Jim Finerty and Kathy Adams, Mike Marlier with weather and Fred McLeod (Now Cavaliers announcer), with Sports, Including reports on the Cavaliers and the NHL Cleveland Barons. Really kind of a Time Machine of a seemingly simpler time 30 years ago..Thought it might cool us off by thinking of the Holidays coming up...
Push the Play button on the left to begin the video..Enjoy!
