"I remember when we filmed this promo, and I thought then - "This is silly" - but they didn't ask my opinion," wrote Ward on Facebook about the following clip.

Hello, friends. Here's my "#ThrowbackThursday" memory for you - and it's really silly. I remember when we filmed this promo, and I thought then - "This is silly" - but they didn't ask my opinion. If you want to follow me today, just click on my Facebook page.

Ward writes this promo was from the late 60s or early 70s.

Happy Friday, friends. Hope you have a fine weekend planned. There's a lot going on, with the #FinalFour, and the #ShellHoustonOpen, and the #Astros opening their season. I was looking back over some old video from the past, and found this promo that aired in the late '60's - probably around 60 or maybe 70. That's my photographer, the late Jim Priest, and this was a look at what we did almost every night after the ten o'clock news. I was a whole lot younger then. I hope you enjoy it, and have a great weekend. Also, thank you for liking my page.

  1. Reporters talking to cops, jumping out of a live'll see the same crap today in promos they did 30 years ago.

  2. I remember the promo he did with Ed Brandon & Bob Allen were running to catch the trolley at Herman Park...they took it off the air after they thought kids would try the same thing! lol
