Would this be the same person who stood behind a glass wall with the outline of a map?  She'd write the numbers wind swooshed backward so they looked correct on camera.  I'm thinking it was Jane Day, and she was on Channel 5.

I'm also remembering the opening of the newscast.  It was sponsored by Howard JOhnson's.  They'd open with a shot of the roof and zoom in on the weathervane on top of Simple Simon.  The N,S,E,W from the weathervane would turn around and become N,E,W,S as the V/O guy introduced the news.
