    It’s their larger insert studio. Frequently Noticiero Telemundo came from there and Wake Up With Al.

    Anyone notice how their graphics are just a reversed version of the old hearst chyrons.

    Here are some more pictures of the Saturday Today setup and some images of the graphics that I uploaded for the folks over at TVForum who were curious.

    (Note they revert back to the regular graphics for non Olympic stories - for some reason they do not insert the Today Show logo in the lower thirds)

    Like in Rio they edited the ticker space that the affiliates use. The affiliates did not have to change any of their settings rather the Today team changed the backdrop for the affiliate text to overlay.

    I think if the parallelograms were pointed in the opposite direction it would be close in size to the Hearst one.

    Going with 'international broadcast *centre*" instead of "center"!

    Could that bug get any larger? Geez.

    It’s interesting to see NBC affiliates get creative with the Today ticker instead of it just being a scroll.

    You mean the weather isn’t like that locally? I thought that was standard NameDropper HD. Maybe WBAL’s running it through a different system.

    Do other stations have some issues with the text disappearing when the ticker background disappears like around 3:55 of the video?

    It's America's performance, or lack thereof.

    It's not that, I watch for the sports but to me it has been boring. I even thought the RIO games was boring as well.

    I almost want to say it’s because it’s live Coast to Coast. Everything’s happening in real time and we now have to wait through entire events versus the carefully edited pieces and events in previous Olympics.

    I don't watch the primetime coverage. They have been awful, the last five Olympics. I think it is because the Olympics now has become so political. It always was but it is in overdrive and it just pushes you away.

    There was a post on Business Insider that said that countries are not as excited bidding to host Olympics like they use to, they should just keep the Olympics at a certain location.

    In addition to ABC, ESPN would handle most of the coverage. Do you want to see Mike and Jamielle hosing Primetime coverage? #BECAREFULWHATYOUWISHFOR

    Except for the fact that Jemele Hill stepped down from her ESPN post to do long form writing for ESPN's sister site "The Undefeated." I doubt that she will return to the TV grind except when asked to be a guest on certain ESPN programs.
