    I did a focus group test with a friend last night.

    She thought the gfx and music didn't really mesh well and that the music was fine enough, but she wouldn't go out of her way to watch/listen to it. That's in comparison to the KUSA 1995 theme, which, though she admitted was a "standard news theme", she liked (and compared to a "peppy Star Trek theme"). And both paled in comparison to the BBC News music, which she was really impressed by, especially after seeing it in action.

    I'm still a bit ambivalent. It's not bad per se but that open cut rubs me the wrong way. And it's not the "ooh"s. The track has that droning, repetitive feel. I don't know why that doesn't really work for me when some of my favorite news bumpers are simple and kind of repetitive (MCTYW and Arnold's NewsEdge). Maybe it's the lack of percussion in this one? Then again, BBC News has no percussion in that bumper and yet I like that... I dunno, I really dunno. A lot of the other cuts are really, really good, it's just that main cut.

    Maybe they'll break them out for Mardi Gras coverage? Could be a good time to stress test.

    The new graphics and music would work great in New Orleans.

    You would think today would be the day.

    NOPE.

    But they have the entire morning team in Mario Kart mode. (I’m not even joking)

    KVUE launched the new graphics on their midday show. They appear to have the revised weather icons, and they look a lot better.[​IMG]

    In other words, the first native ABC affiliate to get this package. WFAA can’t be far behind.

    After hearing a full newscast's worth of the new music, I've decided that it's better than I thought it was at first. KVUE seems to have picked a bunch of cuts that almost sound like they're from a package with a traditional signature, but it's also a bit like hearing the entire newscast done with that one cut that Stephen Arnold seems to put in a lot of his packages (particularly the ones for Texas stations) that's a little bit slower and heavy on the acoustic guitar and feels like it was specifically designed to be played as a close over a lingering shot of the sunrise.

    Turns out that's not an NBC affiliate-exclusive cut of C Clarity.

    I had a co-worker tell me that the 4 note signature sounds like the end of this song:

    It might take up to 3 months, or less.

    KENS 5 In San Antonio got the new website layout and graphics. I believe this is the first Tegna CBS affiliate to get the new look, but correct me if I'm wrong.

    It is (although KHOU is using it in promos so far and not newscasts) Looks like TEGNA is trying to get it rolled out to the Texas stations before moving on.

    It depends on if they have the same equipment as the other Tegna stations to support the new graphics, etc. Could take longer
