    I never liked the ABC2 logo, glad it's gone.

    Gotham is used for the callsign and slogan.

    A lot of the local TV logos that have been brought out since the mid '90s pale in comparison to designs from the '60s, '70s and '80s, so it is good to see someone at least try to step back in a direction influenced by those more creative eras.

    “As we worked on a fresh new logo for our organization, we also wanted to remember our history, the heritage of WMAR as a journalistic pioneer,” said Rob Brockmeyer, WMAR’s senior director of creative services.

    It may be a journalistic pioneer, but without those ratings, they are far from it.

    They have a new logo, of course, but the same graphics Scripps has used for about 6 years now, unfortunately.

    Haha I just did. Lmao. Didn't realize that. In other words, without the ratings, WMAR is no journalistic pioneer, WBAL is.

    No that doesn’t make any sense either... ratings have nothing to do with being a pioneer or not... a pioneer is someone who does something early on or first... nobody said that entity or person was best at it...

    WEWS' tagline used to be "First in Ohio" since they were the first television station in Ohio. Now, they seem to be trying to outsuck WOIO these days. So take it for what it's worth.

    Ok.... now you totally lost me... they had a slogan that was true, dropped it and now you say they suck (not disputing that)... what’s your point?

    I don't think there's much of a point to be made. Scripps has really let things go and their on-air product in Cleveland (and from what I have read elsewhere) has suffered. The saying "how the mighty have fallen" applies to WEWS. For many years WEWS and WJW were very competitive and now there is no contest.

    They use the tag line pioneer in their morning “sign on” which airs before America This Morning. It’s because they were the first to sign on.
