It’s taken me awhile but I have finally found a (almost) full news broadcast with Ron Magers. From this spring day in 1980, Jimmy Carter’s visit to wounded military personnel, Cyrus Vance resignation, Champlin fire, Afghanistan, Labor, and Israel/Palestine are top headlines with some local flavor of escape female convicts, Airport noise, and a man protesting the City of Bloomington by not paying his water bill. Also weather with Roy Finden (for a vacationing Dennis Feltgen) and Bob Bruce with sports including a report from Robb Leer on the Northstars.

iamnomad: Plenty of ads for lawn care tools tonight!
Also, the V/O on the “Investigators” promo (beginning at the 3:16 mark) was by Norman Rose (who previously worked at NBC).
jkusske: So nice not to see all those offensive drug commercials we have now!
JimmyC: Was that Paul Stagg’s voice in the Minnesota Federal commercial? Kinda odd hearing that voice on channel 5 rather than 4.
