    I wonder how soon they'll get a new set (which will presumably be a Devlin one like the other O&Os have been getting).

    The one they've got is pretty dated and they could use a new one - but I guess it would mean another big change to their visual identity, and they seem to be treading quite carefully here at the moment.

    there's a new logo for KRXI's Simulcasts of KTVU's 10:00 News.

    Apparently the ID they show in between is Kinda Outdated. Sinclair should fix that maybe.

    Still doing that 'eh? I wonder when KRNV will finally replace it with its own hour-long 10pm newscast.

    I'm surprised that they've kept the 10pm simulcast going, I figured they wouldve dropped it for a KRNV-produced newscast. But I guess after the backlash they got for dropping the Mornings on 2 simulcast they're hesitant.

    I just think Sinclair hasn't readied the station yet to produce it.

    Looks like KTVU has ditched the generic Fox O&O opens, as Mornings on 2 was sporting a completely new, custom open today. Makes sense as it's a pretty big day for KTVU, with Gasia Mikaelian making her official Mornings on 2 debut and the premiere of the 4:00pm show later on. In-show graphics (lower thirds, etc.) remain the same.

    I haven't had a chance to grab video yet, but here's a still. Overall looks pretty great, and I'm glad they've gone with something custom over the hub crap.

    That looks so nice! Not sure about the use of Gotham, but otherwise, that's really excellent. This is the price I pay for being a temporary ex-pat I suppose. Maybe I can catch some video off my Comcast DVR later.

    That's not Gotham, it's Nexa, which does look a lot like it.
     
  11. It does look a lot nicer than the standard graphics that the Fox O&Os currently use...I do wonder if and when these would used down the rest of the station group chain.

    Another still, but here's the noon open. The vertical O&O-style logo lockup is thankfully history. Nice upgrade!

    They look like great updates. The way the ticker and logo looks good minus the background of the lower third.

    Their new 4pm newscast debuted today as well. Very soft type of Newscast. Very Social Media geared. Way better than KPIX's Nightbeat which is too overloaded with Social Media.

    Is their 4pm newscast better than KGO's 4pm newscast? And nobody watches nightbeat because everybody is tuned to KTVU at 10pm.

    Keep an eye out for KTVU. There could be more new opens throughout the day.

    A sign of things to come for the other O&Os? It would be nice if they had the option to go with these graphics. There are other Fox O&Os that don't prescribe to the "Fox Attitude" that these would be great for.

    Evidently, KTVU is the WJZ of the FTS group. But I will say that KTVU has excellent opens that don't scream "FOX!!!!" Now if they could only do the same for the ex-New World stations (KTBC, KDFW, WJBK, etc.).

    Those look like they were done by the former Cox graphics team.

    I have video! I forgot to record it in HD, but...it's still not bad for putting something together from far away.

    If I had to guess, these opens are likely vestiges of what were going to be new in-house graphics before the Fox sale happened. The new show is interesting— quite a few in-depth, studio-based interviews and other segments about more cerebral topics like SF's housing crunch and Muni's perpetual woes.
