The program may have been forgotten, the theme certainly is not forgettable. This is Part II of The Mission by John Williams; originally titled as the “Fugue For Changing Times”. Before Hours was a 15-minute business news program that was a joint production of NBC News and the Wall Street Journal. It was anchored by Bob Jamieson, who was a frequent substitute news anchor on the Today Show, and the weather reports were provided by Joe Witte. The program was on the air from March 1987 to September 1988.
