Local news. It makes us laugh. It makes us cry. It lets us know that Patsy the 107-year-old turtle is finally being honored with a key to the city.
But for the moment, forget everything you know about local newscasts, because the team at TV 6 News Update is about to cast a spell on you.
While pursuing an impromptu late-night YouTube search for the term "80s local news," we stumbled upon this absolutely mind-blowing introduction to a 1980s news broadcast.
That marvelous soundtrack. Those intrepid reporters who just won't quit. That house fire!
It's time to let TV 6 show you how it's done.
Watch the video above via YouTube/Bismarck izzle.
