(WBRE/WYOU-TV)  We hope you enjoyed the 1993, 1995, 1996 versions of the Night Before Christmas. 

As many of you know this is the time of the year when the staff gathers to read to the Night Before Christmas.   The new version (2018)  will air on Christmas Eve.   We have been reading the classic tale for many, many years.   Videographer Tony “Ingy” Ingargiola found most of our vintage versions.  We are searching for 1994 – we will find it!.   We thought it would be fun to take a look back at the way we were.  

     This edition is 1997 and 1998.   Former anchorman Keith Martin is your main reader with the cast and crew – waving hello! Keith started this tradition here at Eyewitness News.  For those wondering Keith is doing well and yes, he still has that Red Jacket.  I just received a Christmas card from Keith and he said the jacket is “Alive and Well”!  

     Again, over the years the faces have changed, some of our friends have moved on to other stations, some other careers.  Some have retired.  And sadly, some have passed on.    This is truly a beloved tradition here at Eyewitness News.   We hope you enjoy seeing some familiar faces again!

As always- Thank you for making Eyewitness News Part of Your Day!—  Jayne Ann!
