I termed it the "classic" opening, because it is the one I most enjoy - the "Circle 7" symbol that spins around and joins the "Action News" graphic in the corner, and of course, the music!

I remember that intro, having grown up in Detroit. WXYZ received the award after its superb coverage of the crash of Flight 255 in 1987.
I wish I was the love child of Bill Bonds and Robbie Timmons.
I also liked when the 5pm news was over and the VO announcer would say "Stay tuned to Channel 7 Action News 6pm with Rich Fisher, Doris Biscoe and Detroit's First News Team." and you would see them walking to the set as he announed it... Classic news at it best!

Bill didn't get his toupee on straight, you can see a gap above right ear.
Love the concern on Robbie's face that Bill wasn't gonna be ready in time, and of course he made his final suit adjustments right as he began his first words. At times, Bill Bonds' coanchors simply had to be speechless at how he ever pulled it off.

I's just my opinion, but I feel that this is one of the greatest news opens ever created, with a power and urgency matched by the delivery of Bill Bonds himself.
It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.
Chuck Norris was once a guest on Top Gear. Chuck and his 18 wheeler beat The Stig's in a Veyron best lap by 14 seconds. Lucky Chuck Norris only had to change one tyre.
