WLS and WBBM in Chicago both ran full credits at the end of their New Year’s Days broadcasts.

WLS ran its credits over a video montage of fireworks from the city’s New Year’s Eve celebration, while running a modified cut of its normal “Eyewitness News” theme music by Frank Gari.

WBBM, meanwhile, opted to use “We Are The Champions” by Queen set against a computer generated background of fireworks.
