    Given that this finally killed off the "Start Here"-era bubbles that were a relic of when WSET was using Third Coast, I'll tolerate this.

    They automatically lose 15 points for changing the pitch of the theme.

    And further back, IIRC, Rob Jennings was the main anchor/weatherman on the weekend editions of Action News on WPVI, and I even remember seeing a 1992 KITV Honolulu segment from YouTube where Dan Cooke was the weatherman as well as being one of the anchors.

    The Sinclair Flag Mandate got applied to KPTM as well, which otherwise uses the current Fox O&O graphics but with the Sinclair weather graphics.

    Somehow, I think it actually makes it look better there. And trust me, putting a flag on it feels like something Fox would do to begin with if they ran their local operations with FNC's political positions.

    KTVO in Kirksville, MO (Market #210) has finally gotten the Sinclair look with the conversion to the WSYX version of the Sinclair graphics. In addition, they have received a new set as well as a new logo.

    Huh, they are using the "glass" variant of the graphics in the beginning but also using "curves" throughout the weather segment (watch at end). Weird.

    Considering what they had, and the market size, this is very impressive.

    Here's KTVO's opening from last night. I like the new logo, compared to the previous one.

    Are there any other Sinclair stations that don't use the standard Sinclair graphics and theme music? Any chance of this happening with Tribune's stations once the merger is approved?

    WKEF/WRGT is right in WKRC/WSTR's background, so a unique look for WKRC is not that surprising.

    KOMO is using the Mach 2 weather graphics, though it's still the original graphics elsewhere (with their enlarged bug that messes up the balance of things. Even KATU's version looks better).

    KHGI have now updated their weather graphics. (Don't ask me why they are using 2 "First Alert Weather" logos) :)
