These are some old local news clips

Dean Blevins has not aged either!

A few more after the jump...

An old Channel 9 morning news opening. Mitch Jelniker had some sweet-ass hair, and somebody named Gene Wheatley is introduced as giving the "farm news." Also, if Patrick thought the weather technology was scary in 1990, he's going to be terrified when he sees the "technology" Nelson Robinson uses in this promo.

This video includes many white KOCO newscasters dancing very badly.

One thing I've noticed is that a lot of the 80's local programs had extremely cheesy songs that I have a hard time believing anyone thought were good ideas. This "5 Who Care" broadcast is no exception...

A weird 5 Alive "Dirty Laundry" parody from 1985. I'm really not sure what they were thinking.
