    I accidentally posted it in the Holy graphics knockoff thread, but I think this news open can show you how mis-matched it is.

    Where's the mismatch?

    Using Chapin alongside a theme that is relatively more calm than he is.

    This started a string of KPRC just being bland and trying to re-find themselves.

    I don't think the open is bad...

    But KSTP somehow managed to use every VO guy of this era save for Charlie Van Dyke.

    If you listen to the opens on NMSA, it starts with Ernie Anderson, then Roger Thompson, then John B. Wells, then Chapin. 4 VOs in a 5 year span. (and those are just the ones we know about!)

    They also used Chapin prior to using that open from 1989-1990, during his early days at WSVN. Might’ve been his second news VO job.

    Also with WNEM finally using some graphics that look good, which Meredith station is now currently the most primitive-looking?
