Background

Kelly News & Entertainment was the national production arm of Kelly Broadcasting Corp. (then owners of KCRA-3 Sacramento, CA and KCPQ-13 Tacoma/Seattle, WA) and purchased by Hearst-Argyle Television (now "Hearst Television") with KCRA in 1999 and the company was folded into Hearst-Argyle Television Productions.

Kelly Entertainment Company

(1988)

Nicknames: "KEC"

Logo: On a dark teal background, we see the multicolored letters "K", "E" and "C" in 3D moving around to form the word "KEC", which turns gradient cyan shortly after. The stacked 3D text "Kelly Entertainment Company" in word-by-word, then quickly changes color from white to blue.

FX/SFX: The 3D letters, the company name appearing.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on Public People, Private Lives.

Editor's Note: The letters appearing out of nowhere may put people off, and the font for the letters isn't the most friendly looking.


Kelly News & Entertainment

(1990-August 1999)

Nicknames: "The Kelly Green Bar", "KELLY", "The Eagle"

Logo: At sunset, we see live-action footage of an eagle flying. Then, it fades to a white background, where we see a green bar with the word "KELLY" in 3D white lettering with the letters "K" and "Y" in bold flipping horizontally. The text "NEWS & ENTERTAINMENT" slides down from under the bar in black lettering and a copyright year stamp fades in below. There is a shining wipe effect on the bar and shines again two seconds later.

Variants:

  • A short version starts with the logo flipping.
  • Another version has the logo in a blue bar.

FX/SFX: The eagle flying, the bar flipping horizontally, the name sliding, and the shining wipe effects.

Music/Sounds: The eagle calling, then a synth theme with a 7 note eerie whistling sound, followed by another whistling note with the sound of a ping blended in. The closing theme of the show was also used.

Availability: Extinct. Seen on the short-lived game shows Click! and Peer Pressure. Was also seen on the short-lived series Save Our Streets. The 1990 pilot Show Me (you'll find info on it at Mike Burger's GS Pilots Page) might have this logo too. The blue bar version was seen on GamePro.

Editor's Note: The eerie whistling theme can startle some.
