Fox News O&O News Package music themes from Fox 26

I found some clips from Fox 26 and their news package called, "Fox O&O News Package", I believed they used a different version of this music theme during their 7pm newscast back in 1986.

Here's another from Dailymotion:

In the early seconds of this clip, you'll see the first newscasts from 1983 and I believe 1986 or 1987.

 

Does anyone have the full newscast of Fox 26 from November 1992 ?

The music was produced by a North Carolina based firm called VTS Productions, which folded in the 90s, iirc. It was used on all of the stations initially owned by the then new network. The graphics they used for station IDs and movie opens as well as the early kids block called "Superstars" were also shared among those stations.

One of the things I always thought was interesting was that for a few years in the late 80s, both KRIV and KHTV had the same logo effectively though they had different owners (Fox and Gaylord respectively). Not sure such a thing could or would happen today.
