  1. In This Clip, From 0:05 To 0:17, It Was WTVJ-TV's Channel 4 News' The World Tonight Video Open From Monday Night, April 4, 1983.

  2. In This Clip, 0:18 To 0:34, It Was WTVJ-TV's Channel 4 News' News Weekend At 630's Sunday Edition Video Open From Sunday Night, May 30, 1982.

  3. In This Clip, From 1:08 To 1:26, It Was WTVJ-TV's News 4 At 6's Weekend Edition Video Open From Saturday Evening, September 24, 1983.

  4. In This Clip, From 1:27 To 1:52, It Was WTVJ-TV's News 4 At 6's Weekend Edition Video Open From Saturday Evening, March 23, 1985.

  5. In This Clip, From 4:35 To 4:58, It Was WTVJ-TV's News 4 Nightcast's Weekend Edition Video Open From Sunday Night, October 23, 1988.

  6. In This Clip, From 5:49 To 6:19, It Was WTVJ-TV's Channel 4 News At Noon Video Open From Tuesday Afternoon, January 2, 1990.

  7. In This Clip, From 6:19 To 6:48, It Was WTVJ-TV's Channel 4 News' South Florida At 430 Video Open From Late Friday Afternoon, February 2, 1990.

  8. There were earlier WTVJ opens from the '50s and 1970 ("The Ralph Renick Report") if you want to re-edit that video.

  9. It should also be noted that WTVJ Was a CBS Affiliate until 1989, when WSVN ditched NBC for FOX, WTVJ became NBC, and WCIX became CBS…Then 1995 happened, and–essentially–Channel 4 "Returned" to CBS under the WFOR calls.

  10. why did nbc 6 take over channel4s  call letters in philly nbc 3 when they switched to cbs 3 secured kyw its unusual

  11. tom now works at CHANNEL 4 IN NASHVILLE WSMV-TV  pam now wroks ar WRAL-TV 5 jose diaz ballard now at the NBC SISTER STATION TELEMUNDO NETWORK

  12. You`re very bad with the audio levels – it`s either too quiet or too loud. But it`s better than nothing, so thanks.

  13. Question about the open at 4:35: Was that one used during the brief period where NBC had to operate TVJ as a CBS station? Curious since there's no NBC peacock like the rest of the opens after NBC bought the station.

  14. Before September 10, 1995, WTVJ was Channel 4! After that day, it's on Channel 6! Channel 4 in Miami is now occupied by WFOR! How appropriate!

  15. The signal was so strong that WTVJ had signal so strong coverage of their grand opening of the studios at the American Airlines Arena was so clear in HD!

  16. For anyone wondering what happened to Susan Lichtman, she is now known as Susan Taylor and she was at sister station KNSD from 1997 (correct me if I'm wrong) to 2011 and she is now part of Scripps Health

    And also who would've knew that Teresa Rodriguez and Jose Diaz-Balart would be competing networks (Univision and Telemundo, respectively)
