HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)-- The 1970s was a strange decade in American history. Bell-bottom pants and polyester leisure suits were all the rage. Saturday night fever and the Bee Gees brought disco to life. And here at WHNT News 19 it lead to a news promo that will likely leave you with one thought, "What were they thinking?"
In 1976 a news promo was produced by an Nashville based company for WHNT. It featured both on air news personalities and behind the scenes support staff lip syncing.
A set of four were produced; two 30 second promos and two one minute promos. All four can be seen in the clip above. This brief taste of the 1970s should brighten your day.
