We do not use the present perfect with expressions that refer to a completely finished period of time, like yesterday, last week, when, then, five years ago, in 1995. The simple past is used with this meaning.
In American English, the simple past is often used to give news.
this is the first time etc.
We use a present perfect tense in sentences constructed with this/it/that is the first/second/third/only/best/worst/etc.
