KCPQ, Q13 Fox Seattle, Wa, U.S.A, 2020. KCPQ was recently bought by Fox Television Stations, Inc as part of a trade where KCPQ and WITI Fox 6 Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were acquired from Nexstar (who bought the Tribune Broadcasting group, which owned Q13 and Fox 6) for the WJZY-WMYT duopoly in Charlotte, North Carolina. Q13 and Fox 6 would end up adopting the new Fox O&O graphics. Both stations' first day as an O&O was March 1st.
Here is the new Q13 News open, October 18th, 2020

Here is the former open to Q13 News as aired on March 1st, their first day as an O&O

A week after Q13 on October 29th, Fox 6 received the new graphics package as well

The former Fox 6 News open under the later Tribune / Nexstar era seen on August 9th, 2020 after FTS bought WITI

Here's the 1989 Loma Prieta / San Francisco earthquake as it happened live on television -- the picture begins to break up at the 4:17 mark as the tremor hits during the World Series:

I've seen the coverage from a San Francisco perspective before, but this is the first time we've seen the coverage from a East Coast perspective as this recording is from WABC-TV New York who were utilising sister station KGO's reporters while dipping in and out of network. In the early stages, you'll see network crashing into Roseanne, then WABC opting-out, back into Roseanne and then a ABC News Special Report.

Edit, it appears to be KABC Los Angeles who also have an Eyewitness News.

Just to clarify: KGO never used Eyewitness News because the name was already taken by Group W's KPIX. (Group W and ABC were both early adopters of the name and format.) For a long time, KGO's news was branded News Scene:

KPIX dropped the Eyewitness News brand in early 2013.



Doesn't get any better than the late 90s "Eyewitness News is EveryWhere in the Best Place on Earth:"
