Xinwen Lianbo (Chinese: 新闻联播, literally "News Simulcast"）is the main news broadcast of Chinese TV network CCTV. Every day at 19:00 GMT+8, all Chinese local TV stations' main channels are required to transmit the broadcast.
Xinwen Lianbo had no anchors until late 1978.
Early–Mid early 1985?
Although no other evidence can be found due to CCTV.com delete those archives of Xinwen Lianbo making it impossible to see it on website.
From 1 January 1996, Xinwen Lianbo began to broadcast live, though some long oral reports are still broadcast by tape.
