CityPulse Tonight


YouTube 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.
