    Look N makes me feel claustrophobic.

    Same, the 2014 refresh of their previous package was my favorite in this decade.

    Have you seen the upgrade to the current "Look N" graphics entitled "Look N v.2"? it is made their debut in some news promos last month.

    Has WMAQ gotten their own Storm Ranger? This post makes it seems like they did.



    Is this what your talking about? Kind of like a reverse Diagrid 1.0 and 2.0.

    I can't say that I've ever seen the footage, but I stumbled upon video of Carol Marin's final sign-off from 1997. Of course, we all know the story. The whole video is some sort of montage of her final days at the station. This Vimeo account has been posting a ton of what I would assume is Carol's collection, going from her early days at WMAQ, several broadcasts of her failed WBBM format, to more recent work at WTTW. Virtually unlabeled, her videos seem to all begin with the number 5. This seemed just a bit too inside to put in the Classic Video thread.

    The farewell speech begins at the 3:45 mark.

    I rarely watch, but caught a few minutes of this morning's newscast on NBC5. Alex Maragos was filling in, and apparently Katie Kim is now Susan Carlson's co-anchor on weekend mornings. Though I don't believe it was ever permanent, Christian Farr sat in that seat, last I knew.

    Could it be Katie was just filling in for Christian? If I'm not mistaken, when others have filled in for him, they would say, i.e....'I'm Katie Kim sitting in for Christian Farr." But who knows with WMAQ. They tend to do random things and never make anything official (even if it's temporary).

    I did some poking around on social media, just to see of there was any announcement of a promotion, and it appears that Katie has been on the weekend show since like April, if anchor team selfies are any indication. All I know is that Alex said he was filling in for Katie.
