VIDEO: What a TV newsroom looked like in 1993



Let's return to a magical time in television news when an army of staffers could be found in a TV newsroom, computers were a small part of the game, analog ruled and people still were hung over from the 1980s. I'm talking the early 1990s here.

So get out a photo of your favorite live truck operator and tape librarian to watch this video shot at the WXIA 11Alive newsroom in Atlanta on the evening of August 25, 1993. Maybe if we can continue to stay mentally in 1993, we can catch an old episode of Beavis and Butt-Head or something.

  1. To see all the work that goes on to produce a show back then. It's like they were running all over each other. I like the clothes and hairstyles. Thanks for sharing.

    That video was made when real professionals were running newsrooms. Now, stations have glorified interns and corporate ass kissers running the desk and newsroom. Delete this post (aka be a nazi moderator) and I will just repost it. I am here to expose the truth.

  4. Newsrooms now have just computers, and take feeds from TMZ. They don't do news.
