This post will be updated as more new looks debut!
FOX O&O KMSP in Minneapolis debut a new set on Sunday night. The set was designed by Devlin Design Group and features a thin-bezel monitors making up a 5x2 monitor wall. Additional elements include color changing walls and walls meant to look like square stone block.|
The new set replaces a set that debuted in 2006 with the adoption of the FOX O&O graphics and music. While it debut with the O&O overhaul, that set did not use the design seen at other FOX O&O stations.
A time lapse of the set install can be found here. Discussion is ongoing in this thread.
While that headline may look like an april fools joke, it's true. Seattle's KOMO is now open for tours 24/7 365, thanks to Google's Street View service. Users can take a virtual tour through the station's studio, control room, the KOMO radio studios, and the station's weather office, on demand. Unfortunately, it looks like the station's newsroom is off-limits.|
We'd love to hear if other stations are doing this. Drop a link in the comments if you know of one!
NewsTalk Media Corporation, parent company of TVNewsTalk.net, has announced it has completed a strategic acquisition of Local TV, LLC. and their 21 television stations, which were listed for sale late last month. "This acquisition plays right into our strategic goals to create and foster synergy in a multi-media market driven by could-based social media." said NewsTalk Media's Chief Innovation Officer (and reformed Nigerian spammer) Dr. Clement Okon. Okon, who NewsTalk Media Chairman Archibald Coolranch says was "Completely instrumental" in finalizing the deal, went on to add that the proceedings were done "IN STRICTEST CONFIDENCE" and were "UTTERLY CONFIDENTIAL AND ‘TOP SECRET’". He added that he is overjoyed that NewsTalk's Media's request for urgent business relationship was completed so quickly.|
The acquisition of Local TV will also serve to help NewsTalk Media's existing brands. Once the merger is complete, it is expected that current Local TV CEO Bobby Lawrence will be made head of TVNewsTalk.net Guest Services. In a statement released to the media, Lawrence stated "I am so thrilled to be joining the team of the website that helped us so much during our sale. If it wasn't for TVNewsTalk, I would have sold every station to Sinclair." Additionally, Local TV Chief Operating Officer Pam Taylor will add "Managing Editor of TVNewsTalk" to her duties, replacing the outgoing W. Charles Weeters II, who is retiring in June "to focus on [his] quest to create the perfect Bacon and Funyuns cheeseburger."

The deal is expected to be finalized this week.
TVNewsTalk.net is pleased to announce the return of the TVNT Frontpage! You may remember the previous frontpage was disabled due to incompatability following an upgrade a couple of months ago. Since then, we've been working on learning a brand new Content Management System and working on designing a brand new front page.|
The new front page has a lot of features "under the hood" and we hope to begin sharing some of those with you all ASAP. For now, we will continue with the tradition of promoting community content to the front page, but we are hoping to open up a way for community members to submit content directly.
