    Everyone, I'm going to be on WFAA News 8 tomorrow night at 10pm. I've was interviewed by Kevin Reece all afternoon today about my autism, my love to local TV news, etc. So, if you're in the DFW area, please be sure to tune in tomorrow on The Update at 10pm.

    I don't see what the big deal is. I'm 99% sure this is supposed to be a modern take on their old slanted 11 logo. If they used this exact logo 40 years ago, I have a hunch that every one of you in here complaining would be commenting about how amazing and wonderful it is that Tegna was reviving a "classic" and how the logo they moved off of was the worst logo that ever existed in the history of TV station logos and should have never existed to begin with. It's an 11. It looks way better as a social media icon/app icon/etc than the old one did (which is probably the catalyst for the change.) It looks way better than any typeface would look.

    This took me 10 minutes....it could clearly be refined just a bit. They really could just replicate the KARE "11" across the group and the world would be a better place. There's a reason that still looks good after 25+ years.

    You'll have to forgive Eat News. He and Regis have a bit of a history with each other. Every since the vicious taunting, Eat News sees Regis everywhere and this causes him to boldly address TVNT posters' wild misconceptions regarding ratings versus billings.

    That list at the bottom is the one that's been on their website for months. The line "According to Wotila, NewsNet has signed up 25 affiliates so far since it launched 28 days ago." is questionable since it seems to say "NewsNet added 25 affiliates in 28 days" when it really seems to mean "NewsNet signed on 28 days ago with 25 affiliates." And they're still insisting KAAP is in San Francisco. Quite a lot of fake news coming from the "facts" network.

    I hope the new studio makes a big splash. I hope they flood the market with catchy promos that make waves across the bayou. I heard their news department is still very sensitive about being the pool camera, and some reporters have been getting lazy... ...and floating their packages.

    Have you seen the weather forecast in Iowa this week? I'd move the market to another state too. In the email we received, it says Nexstar will divest WTKR/WGNT and WNEP, in addition to stations in the overlap markets, and perhaps more as we've speculated.

    WGME might want to consider doing what we did at KBEX-TV during our last flood. We purchased these nice inflatable news sets from Alibaba.com. https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/2015-Popular-Inflatable-Bar-Inflatable-Service_60298572502.html?spm=a2700.7724857.normalList.26.edac7ea1J8fThQ Now we can broadcast live when our area floods. We just get a few cameramen on tire innertubes and LIVEU's...and we can drift along and still broadcast...while keeping dry. The sets also come in festive colors, and you can even order sets with your station branding...order plenty in case a few get punctured or sink.

    Can we throw the OSI Fox affiliate theme into a bottomless pit? It was horrible in the 2000s and it's even worse now.

    Well, let me run against the grain here. I like the new slogan actually. Mainly, The point is "We have been there for the good and bad and we'll be there to cover it all." The slogan "With you for life." gets to the point there. At least it isn't an overused slogan. I'm looking at you "On Your Side" "Coverage You Can Count On" and "Everywhere" as examples here! For a market dominate station like WDIO... it works very well and as much as people on here will hate me for saying it, That 10/13 should of been killed off a LONG time ago Like A REALLY LONG TIME AGO! It shouldn't of been a logo going into 2019.

    Hi all, Earlier today, an issue with the script that updates our security certificate prevented it from doing its job. As a result, the security certificate expired. This problem was identified and fixed in about 30 minutes. During the brief period between the expiration and the fix, you may have seen a message alerting you to an "attack" or that your data is not private. This is a generic error message provided by your web browser, and is not applicable to the issue we experienced. There has been no breach of our security and your user data has not been exposed. Please reach out if you have questions or concerns. -Weeters

    CBS and/or FOX, for one. It's a football market, so one of them will definitely try for WISH/WNDY. Nexstar may keep 4/59, but I do think we're in for an affiliation swap in Indy once the dust settles.

    Plus you have to haul and lug all those flags, and you have to keep track of the stand-ups making sure they match stations, you have to be cautious of outdated logos or network affiliation switches. ...and if and when you screw one up...it's all YOUR fault. How about just No mic flag and a nice new black Electro VoiceRE-50... Or a nice new black RE-50 and a generic Nexstar flag?

    Nice to have a complete and non-glitched open of the first WPTY/WLMT theme! All the opens we have from those first few months are either bugged out or incomplete. The 9pm show with Harleston and Houston was the first in Memphis (and in the nation!) to be anchored by two African-American men. Also, I'm a big fan of that theme bed. The first day of operation at WPTY News Watch 24 saw the 6pm newscast go out with a really harsh buzzing sound and the 10pm open air no fewer than three times (local newspaper accounts confirm this was how it went out!): The first WLMT 9pm show had its own big blunder, when Houston, who had been poached from WDAF, welcomed viewers to News Channel 30... Their launch was so bad they changed lead male anchors within two weeks of going on air and fired a producer in January 1996. Within five months, they had changed news themes. The problems weren't just presentation and technical, either (they kind of raced the clock to begin broadcasts). The opening night sports report mentioned "Memphis University" instead of the University of Memphis. The station essentially failed to convince Memphians that they knew the city.

    It smacked of the old 11 to me too. I'm not from Atlanta but I welcome the change. Nobody but J.C. Burns seemed to know how to use the previous logo. I know a lot of people probably grew up with the 1993 logo so I do get the difficulty of parting with it on a sentimental level, but there were real practical issues with the design that they kept blatantly dancing around.

    The "KRON ON" brand is dumb...

    Looks like KRON — and perhaps more Nexstar stations — are venturing into 24/7 news. Which reminded the geek in me of their NewsCenter 4 “24 Hour News — Every Day, Every Hour” days.

    Not sure if that’s a compliment for MSNBC - we are talking about a person who has a gold toilet and his primary residence is golden and marble. Hardly the type for style advice.

    Hey! Another person with ASD. There seem to be a number of us in the community! Please pass us the link when it's posted online after-the-fact.

    I don't think Tribune wants to deal with Sinclair again though in any way, shape or form. WNEP is the dominant station, but it avoids having to break up the WBRE/WYOU duo, and Hampton Roads was the obvious move too.

    I'm happy to see a new logo. I'm just not happy to see THIS logo.
