"News 8 now: Closer to the community. Closer to the stories that matter the most to you."

This promo is now a decade old. But it still does a sterling job of positioning WFAA8 as D-FW television's one-stop news shop of record.

Some of the featured anchors and reporters are still on board, including Byron Harris, Brett Shipp, Gary Reaves, Janet St. James, John McCaa and Gloria Campos.

Others have either left the station -- Tracy Rowlett, Troy Dungan, Dave Evans, Doug Wilson, Anna Martinez -- or are no longer with us (the late Chip Moody).

The majestic music seems just right, and the visuals flow seamlessly. Mount Rushmore could use this kind of buildup. But see what you think.
