  • Last Saturday, July 19th, a video recording of a local newscast WKRG-TV produced in 1975 was uploaded onto the official YouTube channel for David Sirak, the director of news technology for WFTV-TV in Orlando, Florida (according to David Sirak, the video was copied from a collection of video recordings owned by his former colleague Robert Jordan since he was the news presenter for the newscast (the announcer for the newscast referred to Robert Jordan by his nickname at the time: "Bob Lee"). As for why the last few moments of the newscast are missing, David Sirak had them omitted due to their deterioration).
