Television news music package composed by Al Ham in 1970 for WNAC-TV (Now WHDH-TV in Boston, MA, unrelated to the current WNAC in Providence, Rhode Island). The WNAC news director moved to WPVI-TV (formerly WFIL-TV) in Philadelphia, PA, and took the music with him, and spread to other stations across the U.S. (KFSN-TV 30 San Francisco, WJET-TV 24 Erie, WKBW-TV 7 Buffalo, ETC.), mostly used in the Northeast. Today, WPVI is the ONLY station to still use the theme after 35 years and still counting.
