Folks in Charleston, SC had you ever recorded network TV shows, network newscasts, syndicated shows, or local news from WCBD 2 (then ABC, now NBC), WCIV 4 (then NBC, now ABC), WCSC 5 (CBS), WITV 7 (SCETV/PBS), and WTAT 24 (then Independent, now FOX) on outdated VHS tapes between 1978-1990?
If so for those recorded VHS tapes of WCIV 4 from between 1979-87, did they have the 4 Leads logo that still used the NBC Trapezoid N logo from 1976-79 or the Proud N logo from 1979-86, or the current NBC logo since May 12, 1986 or no NBC logo on channel 4 logo? I know that WCIV used the Trapezoid NBC logo after 1979 as late as Fall 1987 on the periodicals of Charleston, SC newspapers before it was removed from Google Newspaper Archives last April.
I've seen a pre-1989 footage of WCIV 4 newscast with Frank O. Hunt from 1978-79 which has the 1978-87 WCIV logo on the set and WIS-TV's Ed Carter was at the station at the same time. That was before Swanson and Crosby (then Earley) came along in 1981.
Of course I've seen all Big 3 station specials on Hurricane Hugo from 1989 on YouTube since Hugo hit the Lowcountry on 9/21/1989.
