The Vanderbilt Television News Archive [myLMU login required off-campus] is an archive of television news that has been recording, preserving and providing access to television news broadcasts of the national networks since August 5, 1968. The collection spans the presidential administrations of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The core collection includes evening news from ABC, CBS, and NBC (since 1968), an hour per day of CNN (since 1995) and Fox News (since 2004). All streaming videos can be searched by air date and by collection. NOTE: We currently only have access to CNN and NBC clips.

This primary source collection is valuable for patrons across a variety of subjects. Note: This resource is not accessible in OneSearch+.
