    The whole "Focused on family and community" line is clunky as hell but if they're gonna stick with it they should have that in the show opens instead of making the anchors say it.

    Agreed.. They don't sound enthused about it... It's almost an afterthought the way the say it

    The weird thing about those opens is that the photography in all of them is beautiful. Like, major market beautiful.

    They could have worked around the graphic shortfalls by making all their opens in the vein of the Today one and it'd have been fine. I don't get it.

    I was half asleep when I viewed the opens this morning, so I didn't pay much attention to what they said. After re-watching, I totally agree. Not only is it completely unnecessary, it sounds so forced and unenthoused when they are saying it.

    CajunFirst.com now redirects to KLFY (was KADN's old site), and FortWayneHomepage.net now redirects to WANE (was WFFT's old site), although the primary domains have not *yet* changed.

    It's like they tried to combine WNBC's old open with WPVI's open, but failed miserably.

    The 23rd GM change since the MG deal ended.

    Remember, this is also the market where KATC has its own musical opening...

    The posted opening from KATC is used for Good Morning Acadiana only; for their other newscasts, they use cuts from Gari Media's "The One and Only" package (which they've used since 1998)....
