can remember anchors practice  their tease during prime time sometimes it takes a few tries to get it right also you get breaking news-anchors can be testy remember during mid-air collision in 86 how reporters were trying to get to scene remember how anchors were trying to get info before interrupting programming

there were some great events in 86 that made a dish worthwhile like the Cerritos mid-air collision the  1986 FIBA World Basketball Championship in Spain with Rick Barry calling those game solo for TBS both LCS that year some great college football and NFL

when i think about the 92 LA riots i think of watching the  Lakers Blazers G3 with Pete Van Wieren and Hubie Brown at the same time as a KNBC feed with anchors John Beard and Colleen Williams i remember how both John and Colleen were really scared because of all the rioting that was taking place while at the same time the Lakers were playing to stay alive as Portland had won the first two games it was the most dramatic tv i had seen in a long time because you could tell in Pete, Hubie, John and Colleen's voices the Lakers Blazers game went into overtime

i also remember seeing a KNBC feed during the Olympic bombing in 96 with Paul Moyer and Colleen Williams at the same time as NBC coverage with Tom Brokaw so i have seen two news feeds at one time Paul and Colleen were really shaken by what had happened while Tom was as professional as he could be the K2 bird lit up almost immediately with feeds might also add i was really impressed with Paul, Colleen and Tom they very calm and professional it was one of the few times i watched Tom as we were a ABC family then

as far as anchors laughing i remember one time Kelly Lange and Keith Morrison(before Dateline-he was at KNBC then) laughing about  some comedy bit on a show that preceded the news they were laughing it was really funny! i had never seen a anchor laugh over a tv show before the comedy bit must had been really funny too

i always liked seeing anchors get excited over a sporting event providing a great lead-in to the news a few i can remember getting happy over that are Keith Morrison, Kelly Lange(remembered their reaction when Dodgers tied a game against the Reds on Monday Night Baseball only to have Reds hit a homer in next inning), Kristie Wilde(during 85 NLCS when Ozzie Smith homered to win game 5 then Jack Clark homered next day to win series),  Elaine Corral(remembered her reaction when Giants won NL West in 87 remembered also that Steve Physioc was on the call),  Bree Walker(during 91 ALCS), Wendy Tokuda(during 87 NBA Finals when Lakers took late lead with a three but Boston still had a chance to win but missed at buzzer), Twany Little(during 86 ALCS), Cheryl Jennings(during 88 ALCS when Oakland took lead late at Fenway), Jess Marlow(during Mets Astros game in 87 on Monday Night Baseball when Mets took late lead only to have Astros win it with a grand slam in next inning), Hal Fishman(one time when Dodgers won a critical game at Houston), Jerry Dunphy(many times when Lakers won a big road game) i cant remember anyone else who did that but those are who i remember doing that it always funny to see a news anchor react just like anyone else over a sports event in all cases was watching game at same time

i was watching Kelly Lange one night waiting to do a news update during the Tonight Show and the late Johnny Carson did an interview which ran a little long and Ross Tompkins played the NBC Chimes to signal a station break but Johnny kept going and Doc cued the whole band to play the chimes melody.  That got his (and Kelly Lange's) attention! it happened one night to Colleen Williams too and even Keith Morrison had it happen to him once too! i remember that It was first played softly on the piano, then in a higher key if Johnny kept going, and finally by the whole band those news anchors could react if that happened kind of wish i would have seen Jess Marlow or Paul Moyer react to that too or even  Suzanne Shaw from KRON or even Pete Wilson

the two events that showed me i liked having a dish was the time  in April of 1988 i was watching the US-USSR gymnastics meet, live from Phoenix at the same time as a NBA game between Bulls and Celtics live from old Chicago Stadium on a Saturday trying to track two events at the same time i had done it for the NFL and NCAA football but not for two sports like the NBA and gymnastics also showed the difference between how ABC and CBS did sports at that time

1st feed, Dr Gene Scott on Westar 5. Installers loved him. 1st sporting event that I can remember was Prime Ticket on F1 with Gretzky his 1st year. RSN's not scrambled much except for HSE until 1989-1990. Twinsivision on Telstar 301 before MSC for backhauls. MLB started scrambling backhauls in '88. 
Would watch cbs NFL games on 301 and 302. No Ku yet for NBC on K1/K2. Chickie for the Lakers with Stu. Stu started around that time.
1st NBC backhaul was one on G4 cband. NFL game with Enberg/Olson.
I always watched shows before they were on the network, Cheers, 90210 and Coach on Sunday mornings.
Lots of memories. Lots on tapes. NBC 1st going digital for the Olympics. Late 90's I believe
Chickie not getting the openings right with that stopwatch and yelling at Susan in the truck. 
Peter Jennings yelling at someone to give him a pencil on the gstar ku satellite.
ABC Bowling with Schenkel on Gstar.
Fighting Sioux North Dakota hockey which you couldn't get anywhere else on AMC 2 after Primestar left.
AFRTS
New England Cable News Sports show with Pidto and Mike Adams.
Sportstickers on the Sports Channels during the day.
CBS off and on scrambling but rarely for a west coast feed.
NBC test scrambling the cband feed but not the ku feeds during daytime gameshow programming 1989. More people now have ku then cband.
ABC scrambling fulltime in the early 90's except during breaking news.
NYPD Blue on T301 at 7am Pac time on Fridays the weekend before being on the air the following week   
Al/Frank/Dan worrying about the bird killer knowing the Pro Bowl was the only chance to hear them during commercials.
Charlie Jones always saying hi on satellite to us listening on the football backhauls on sbs 6.
TNT/Jefferson Pilot feeds on sbs 6.
Listening to the audio of the White Sox and Astros games on F1 on the videocypher channel audio as the audio was not scrambled. After Sportsvision moved from F4. Nolan Ryan 7th no hitter this way.
Wed night RSN blackouts because of ESPN's new MLB contract in 1990. Backhauls mostlu fiber now 
Gordy Coleman, George and Chris on Sportschannel Cincinnati as the Reds televised from Dodger Stadium but the Dodgers in those days rarely televised  Running the cable through the window and taking the tv outside to watch Reds/Dodgers on a weeknight crashing my parents pool early 90's. Dish was still at home. Sportschannel Cincy F4 Tr 15/16?? 
Hawaii football on G25. ESPN basketball on G25. ABC NFL playoffs wild cards on T4 Ku.
Superstations scrambled on S3. I subscribed to almost everything on the videocypher.
Don Majkowski abc backhaul on the opposite of t301 cband where the MNFgame was on the cband side. ABC had to cut the mics at the house because it was getting rowdy. Last game of the year, Packers needed a scenario to get into the playoffs. House feed was cool!  
Any game with Criqui and Trumpy, Musburger.
Lots of memories. Still lots to watch now but just not the cable type channels     

have to agree with on memories 
always watched shows before they were on the network like China Beach, On Scene: Emergency Response, American Gladiators, and NFL telecasts NBC seemed to be favorite but CBS i saw a lot too also add ABC College Football too didn't like CBS because they cut mics during commercials where as ABC and NBC did not
watching news anchors react to Johnny Carson running long with interviews into local break time Doc would cue the band to play NBC Chimes
Olympic feeds from Calgary in 88
LA Riots in 92 with then KNBC anchors John Beard and Colleen Williams at same time as Blazers Lakers G3 with Pete and Hubie
86 LCS with Keith Jackson and Al Michaels
CBC feeds from Halfax, Montreal and Vancouver during Stanley Cup Playoffs showing different games
Redskins Cowboys 86 where two players caught ball at same time but referee rules touchdown they cant use reverse angle on replay because CBS was in its special report on Iceland Summit otherwise it might have been reversed
question where were cbs and nbc nfl games in 88?i know cbs games were on t301 and t302

one moment during during mid-air collision in 86 that made me scared the Lifeflight nurse Christie Wilson crying because she could not find any survivors of that crash-made me scared  also in church services hearing the organ sometimes would make me scared to the point of crying
