    So, what is this company? Do they have the cuts on their website like other production companies do? Would this music be available to license by non-TEGNA stations?
    Really? What have you heard from them?
    How did you find this out? Any more details?

    Well here is the video of WKYC with new graphics and awful music. Govern yourself wisely and I will say lets bring back the broken fax machine and the tower. Sorry for this video not being in full 1080i HD, have very limited access to OTA HD right now.

    No. I was stating that KXTV has already been "TEGNAtized" for a few months and already had the 'new' Tegna Social media package that WTSP has. In relation to the new graphics package, no they do not have it yet.

    There seems to be something that is not talked about with Tegna.
    The, This is Home package, commonly referred to as the "USA Today" Graphics is Gannett.

    The graphics WTSP/KXTV/WFAA Mornings has is the '16 Tegna Graphics. Since then, they have been rolling out the brand new package. I refer to it as the, 'Tegster' package, for the music's sake.

    That reminds me of what WTSP tried to do with their logo. Just HORRIBLE.

    I’m actually Facebook friends with multiple WKYC staffers. If I wanted to, I could ask them directly.

    The shame of it is... I LIKE the open and most of the graphical design for WKYC. (Except for that insipid “NXT” gimmick and the random color scheme... just stop it, Mr. Cheatwood.)

    As much as Rampage Music’s “Baby’s First Synthesizer” music sucked in 2008, this production music makes that sound like The Tower in comparison.

    I just saw a promo on KSDK that had the French Tegna music.

    Only a matter of time before they make the switch.

    After watching several versions of newscasts with the new graphics, I just don't care for the "next 3 stores bar" above the time/temp bug... it just clutters the screen on the right side and looks outta place...

    Never liked it with this package. With the Gannett package, it flowed.

    I’m sorry for pulling an Eat News here, but...


    On a semi-related note, what passes for music that WPLG used (and WKMG continues to use) looks pretty good right about now.

    So, does anyone know anything more about the new music? What company made it, do they have any demos online, etc.?

    I actually like the bump music and stingers. The opening music with the clapping and a tinge of a soul choir is a little odd. I can definitely hear the French influence in it now.

    They're still using the old graphics/music.
