Dec. 20, 1984 - Newswatch 6 with Glenn Rinker and Carol Nelson (1984)
WCPX was the first of the Orlando-area stations to ditch its 1950s-era studio
and build a new home. Here's a clip from around 1984, shortly after WCPX
made its big move.
The News at 10: 'The
Original' 10 p.m. promo Jan.
18 1991 -- I came across a promo from 1991
when WCPX-Channel 6 was moving its 10 o'clock
newscast from a cable community access
channel to WKCF, then broadcasting on
channel 68. This was the first modern-day 10 p.m.
newscast for Orlando. I think WSWB-Channel 35 had
a 10 p.m. newscast in the early 1970s before that
station went dark. This WKCF newscast remained on
the air -- later produced by WESH and
anchored by Bud Hedinger -- as "The
Original 10:00 News" until last faIl when WKCF opted
to go with sitcoms after WOFL and WRDQ started airing
10 p.m. news shows. Anyway, here's the late Glenn
Rinker to fill you in on the
"new" newscast on TV 68. 1991 10 p.m. News
