News is awesome

The news industry is under significant stress at present. Budgets are being cut, new business models are being searched for, and surveys show being a news journalist is one of the worst jobs you can have. But as this amazing promo clip from the '80s for a Milwaukee TV station shows, it didn't always used to be like this. In fact, it used to be frickin' awesome, with vans, haircuts and grabbing things while walking. Eat your heart out Ron Burgundy. And some food for thought for the creative direction of Seven Sharp's next promotional campaign, perhaps.
