most stations that aren't nbc are selling january's numbers because of the "winter games" and the "big game"... doubt they wait until february to debut anything...
WBZ-FM was yanked off the portal as well. It's on Beasley's CMS at 985thesportshub.com.
Beasley's CMS is WordPress. It's essentially the same platform just a different site template. One could argue that made the transition rather seamless.
One thing I’ve noticed with the new bug on WJZ with their old Chyron is that the WJZ blocks blend in a bit to the lower half of the lower third. It could be my eyes but the silver blocks with the transparent letters make the blocks look somewhat solid with the light blue backdrop.
The bug actually turns 30% transparent and is coded to turn 0% transparent with the lower third.
I’m talking about how the negative space in the W J Z looks. While the rest of the bug stands out from the lower thirds those areas in the logo look like they mesh together.
I was thinking about how the CBS Eye was oblonged. The droopy CBS Eye predated KC Robertson’s tenure in areas that would be related to the logo. The Box logo was introduced in 2004 while became the promotions manager from 2005 and the CSD from 2008. So he inherited the droopy eye but I don’t know why it wasn’t fixed.
Somehow I think all this could have started with someone downloading the wrong version of the Eye (maybe from the web) rather than through CBS. Then the file was likely stored on the server as the master logo and everything snowballed from there.
Also, I heard WJZ ordered CBS Eye bookends for their set -kind of like KARE has. The only problem is that they realized they sent the wrong logo to the metal shop and it was too late to fix.
Yeah... I don’t see it. I tried hard to look for it. Maybe go to your optometrist?
I wanted a post with the spoiler. I’m kidding about the optometrist.
Oh how I wish they were making the bookends and I’d bet the file would have the drooping Eye.
Looks like the logos progressing on air. They put it in LIDIA where it airs at the TOTH and after commercial breaks.
From WJZ’s Facebook Live feed late this morning. Hmmm...
My prediction of WJZ getting the new CBS O&O graphics in 2018 is one step closer to reality.
Seriously, the suspense is killing me... I can't believe this is happening!!
I thought the same thing when I looked.
RIGHT, me neither!
Well, I'm gonna say this (I should've said it a long time ago): you guys got your wish. All that uniqueness will go out the window soon...
I'm all for uniqueness, but in the case of WJZ, its uniqueness had gotten to be just plain bad.
WJZ’s appearance had seriously declined in quality in recent years, to the point where that unique look... looked garish and embarrassing.
Had their art department been competent enough to not revise the 2004-era look over and over again and actually created something semi-decent, then there probably would be a serious case to retain the uniqueness of that look.
You try looking all hot and sexy when you reach 70 years old.
That poor little 13 couldn't even find a sugar daddy to pay for a facelift.
