Since the majority of stories that made news this week regarding Boston television were about either Fox25 or 7News, btvn decided to post a video from 1997 for this week’s Weekend Video. Fox News Boston had a lot of familiar faces on the payroll, most of whom eventually left the station for others in the market. Sports guy Bob Halloran is now at WCVB, while Pete Bouchard left Dedham for 7News a few years after this ad was aired.
Here’s a nice video from YouTube user cottagewalk, showing off the scene that unfolded after the cameras stopped rolling at 11p.m. exactly five years ago tonight.
