WLNE Commercial Breaks (June 6, 1998)

0



Taken from the 1998 Belmont Stakes off of WLNE-TV (channel 6) in New Bedford, MA, serving the Providence, RI market as the ABC affiliate. I also have some WLNE from the 1997 Stakes on this channel, including a full newscast.

The more late 90s WLNE, the better. Thankfully the guys I bought these tapes from had tons of it (which was quite rare on YT until that point). Again, they had a great on-air identity during the late 90s (despite subpar ratings), however by this point Freedom hoisted the same graphics onto WRGB in honor of that station’s 70th anniversary. I have another Stakes commercials video coming up after this.
