    They really need to ditch the logos with the bank gothic font

    These new Strive cuts that all of the stations have switched to with the new graphics...are they mandated or do the stations just like the cuts? Is this a totally new package? Will stations be using the old one at all?

    Bank Gothic is a holdover from the camera mandate, and yeah I would like to see it go. But I know some stations already ditched the font after switching to the rings graphics, floating logo, or even the first generation diagrid. WGAL, WBAL, and WXII dropped bank gothic once they were using the rings graphics. Other stations like KMBC and WCVB did so when they used the floating logo graphics. Last but not least, there are some stations that dropped Bank Gothic when they switched to diagrid 1.0 (e.g. WISN and KOCO)

    WISN hasn't dropped it all the way; still in plenty of places on the set and in the newsroom (which just needs that long-needed refresh already).

    The good news is they've taken up the new-style time and temp bug during non-news programming.

    I don’t know when WCVB will get a set. They spent a ton on monitors and I’d expect they’d want the money’s worth.

    I'm a little surprised that the CBS affiliates got the new package before Hearst's ABC affiliates did.

    March Madness that’s probably why the CBS stations got them before ABC.

    I'm gonna assume that once the NBA playoffs is around the corner, the Hearst ABC stations is gonna get the graphics.

    WPTZ thought it was necessary to do an editorial to explain what the weather alert icons mean. You know, I’m case you’re stupid and didn’t know. Lol

    Okay, WBAL this is ridiculous. I assume others stations are in similar situations.

    I think that is a literal lower third. Also as you can see the closings ticker and headlines crawl was never updated

    Uh, Hearst doesn't own any FOX affiliates.

    Or, they'll get them during May sweeps, whichever time they have plotted out.

    That'll put it roughly a week before the NBA Playoffs begins (given that Hearst owns stations in markets with NBA teams likely heading to the playoffs this year, don't be surpised if those ABC affiliates were to first ones to get the new graphics before the rest of the Hearst ABC group gets it)
