Chicago Morning Newscast Turns 25

25 years ago, WLS in Chicago debuted a new morning newscast.

It was only a half hour and aired from 6:30 to 7AM. We're sure that all the staff that was told they would be working on the morning newscast that started at 6:30AM, whined about how early they had to get up.

Now, with many morning newscasts going on at 4 or 4:30AM and lasting for hours, 25 years ago was certainly, the good old days.

Here's video of that first morning newscast at WLS.
