WBKB Footage Unearthed... At Last!

Post by TVC_DX5678 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:11 pm

I can't believe I glossed over this. A couple of months ago, YouTuber Adam Schrohstein uploaded 1 partial and 4 full WBKB newscasts (commercials included) ranging from 1994-2008. Not much has been talked about the station around here, and for years we had very little older footage of the station. Now we have some on our hands.

Growing up in northern Michigan without cable TV in the 1990s, channel 11 was the only channel we could reliably receive. I have vivid memories of all of those weather graphics.

Nice find.

Didn't know Adam was at WBKB before 7&4. He was probably quite happy to not have to do weather as well as news.

Great find!
