Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – News – Channel 24 Newsbreak


When I get to post one of these videos of Austin’s Channel 24 KVUE Newsbriefs….it always brings back so many fond memories…..like Ch 24 anchorperson Judy Maggio….who was on the news desk in 1984 during the Los Angeles Olympics…..and is still the KVUE News anchor alongside Ron Oliveda and weather man Troy Kimmel….as all three are still on-air today in 2016 after some 33+ years in Austin’s local news….cuz each are respected and appreciated new icons around our fair city….for they are each as much of the history of Austin as anybody.

This news brief covers voting for city proposals….Austin’s bus system operated by Capitol Metro (pay attention to the cars in 1984)…..the possible relocation of Mueller Airport away from center city…..issues in the Windsor Neighborhood….problems on Galveston, Texas beaches after an oil spill.

It is always nice to go back in time and see how things were back then….as this video allows the viewer who knows Austin to do.
