CityPulse Tonight

memoryYouTube user WNED17 recently uploaded some fantastic retro-Toronto-centric gems. These clips have brought back a tonne of memories for me, so I'm going to feature them one by one over the next few weeks.

If you grew up in Toronto, you were told CityTV is Everywhere. I don't know if they're everywhere, but for a period in the 80s they were the cooler place to get your news. Moses created an environment at Queen and John that shook things up nicely.

This clip, from 1984, is an introduction to the nightly CityPulse Tonight newscast. There's Gord Martineau, Anne Mroczkowski, David Onley, Jim McKenny and a guy I don't remember at all.

Here's a Labatt's Newsflash, likely from that very same 1984 day, with extra smiley Anne Mroczkowski.

Anne was hot then and hot now. I remember I told her that face to face at the mistake by the lake. She was there asking fans if the Jays were going to win the series.(I still have the tape of my 10 seconds of fame) The year George Brett homered our dreams away.

No doubt, Anne M is a hottie.

You've got to get that 10 seconds on youtube. I'll post it if you do.

George Brett was our Bucky Dent. He went 8 for 23 with 7 walks and single handedly took us out in game #3. Thanks for reminding me.

John Burgess was the entertainment reporter. The voiceover was Glenn Cole, one of the old school types who had a police scanner taped to his ear 24/7. I believe both have passed on to HeavenPulse news.
