    What do you mean? It's a very creative and imaginative slogan that doesn't scream "bland" or "corporate" or "generic" at all.

    EDIT: Its actually Sinclair's mission statement. Why someone thought copying the corporate mission statement verbatim would be a good idea for a slogan is anyones guess (I'm sure Hunt Valley was involved).

    That said this was long overdue for WBFF. And it looks like it was worth the wait. Glad they actually put effort into the new set and made it look nice unlike another station down I-95 *cough* WJLA *cough*.

    With corporate right down the street, youd think they'd want to provide these stations with the best they can possibly have.

    I feel like the graphics could animate a bit better than they do, also those lower 3rds are really big and im not sure about all the use of the > and >>. Other than that, it's an improvement over the American flags.

    The set is very nice from what I see, one of the better Sinclair sets for sure.

    Yeah, the slogan's kind of clunky. One other thing, they included the date in the open. Including the current date in pre-open newscast teasers was unfortunately something that went out in the late 1990s; KTRK's graphics packages in the 1980s are the only instances I can think of in which the date was included in the main opening sequence.

    RON STONE: “Hello, everybody.”

    That aside. It all looks so good, you forget the corporate overlords that own them. (Mission statement notwithstanding)

    The bug is still backed with the American flag graphic

    I'm not only impressed with the new graphics but the new studio! Very blue, wow.

    Now they have to get rid of that storm watch graphic...

    Not bad at all. Text may be a bit large. What really disappoints me is that they didn't get rid of that awful music.

    Here’s a montage of the new graphics and most of the set.

    Their Fox 45 News logo reminds me of WRGT’s late 90s/early 00s logo. Old and clunky.

    So the animated American flag isn't totally gone, it's just now faded behind the logo bug.

    The graphics look like something that the Tribune graphics team started for WBFF before the merger deal went sour...

    Their ticker looks much better compared to WBFF.
