I thought when I found this clip of Steve Somers in 1982 (http://66wfan.net/showthread.php?1279-Steve-Somers-1982-clip), that I had found the best old video of Steve Somers in existence. Last night I was proven wrong.

This broadcast, dated November 21, 1975 of the KOVR Action News is a great find for us Steve Somers fans. The thing that will stand out immediately apon seeing the Shmooze at the 13:50 mark is the fact that he is the exact spitting image of Ron Burgundy. "Anchorman" was released in 2004 and yet I have not heard any mention of Steve being the man that Ron Burgundy is modeled after, but that clearly is the case!

The whole video is worth watching for the historic value and the commercials, even if you did come here just to see Steve Somers.
