    Like this post if you're old enough to remember the WITI MyFox site being covered in the "kitebox" logo that was never once used on-air. Is there anything besides the website update that is leading people to believe KCPQ is launching new graphics today?

    I may have spotted the first sign of WRTV's new logo on their website. Now please, everyone, contain your excitement at this design marvel and do not bombard me with requests of black-market copies of this logo.

    WXYZ Has a bolder bug now that doesn’t disappear into the background... it looks really nice..

    Except that's not what WTOL ultimately used. When the graphics debuted, they merely stripped down the old logo to fit the new look.

    ??? What comeback? It was never dropped! KCPQ was always known as "Q13 Fox" for the longest time, so this name change is hardly going to be noticed by anyone.

    I would hope not (him appearing on NBC, MSNBC, etc..). It’s best for him to be the ‘face of news coverage’ [ like Lester (NBC), Brian (MSNBC), Jose (Telemundo) Shep (CNBC) ] initially. Maybe down the line have a broader role to play, but there’s plenty for him to do at CNBC. This could easily turn into another disastrous hire for NBC News if not handled right.

    Saw this on Instagram... Wonder if this might be a little hint of the studio’s layout when WNT finally moves in?

    Just saw Shep’s interview on CNBC previewing the show. He said that there’s not going to be any opinion from him, just the news. Good to hear, we need less opinion in prime time, not more. Also I miss his wit, so I’m glad he’s back. I think this is different from Megyn. She disrupted Today's Take which was a show that worked. Shep isn’t disrupting much, just an hour of Shark Tank which already airs all night. I don’t think they’ll be going conservative for all of prime time. That field is already dominated by FNC, and their entertainment shows are doing relatively well.

    I totally agree with these sentiments. This informational format (health, finance, people-doing-good fare. etc.) is so much more substantive than SS&K, and would serve as a more worthwhile 3rd hour to the mothership. Keep Strahan on the early hours, bring Sara back to The View, and let Keke go back to things...that aren't a talk show? Pair Amy and T.J., better-bridge the look with GMA, and boom, an instantly more respectable product that doesn't feel like a mind-numbing knock-off of every daytime ensemble talker to ever exist.

    There is lazy... And there is THAT! I get being safe but that is the absolute bare minimum graphic job. Like 5 seconds and done. If I did that on FTV I would be laughed out the building but here Scripps doing it in real life!

    Last night I was having trouble getting to sleep, and decided to put on NewsNet for a while to see if that would help. Thinking about what is happening with KTWO, I ended up logging an hour's worth of what they aired and figured out where it came from. I wanted to know just how much they rely on CNN. The answer? In the hour I watched, approximately 27 minutes, or 45% of the hour, was ultimately from CNN. A package from WISH also aired twice, with a large "wishtv.com" bug in the upper right, but otherwise clean. This doesn't seem to have come from CNN, but the bug being there was a little odd. Those 9 minutes of actual content from NewsNet include: 5 minutes of Weather (2 minutes and 3 minutes) 2 minutes of news headlines (Nothing substantial, just teasing stories about to air. 1 at top of hour, 1 at bottom) 2 airings of an approx. 1 minute package from California where the reporter/VJ had a NewsNet mic flag.

    And this post is EXACTLY why WJW FOX 8 is STILL #1 in the ratings and even if Nexstar puts its influence in it, WJW will still be the 100,000-lb gorilla kings of the market because they've done everything right. They are Cleveland's Own for a reason.

    Based off of the success of WNT I definitely think the next anchor change for any of the newscasts will trend much younger than 50-60.

    OK, Q13 Fox updated its website. Unclear on when its new on-air graphics and music would debut. Yes, the Fox Corporation is keeping the Q13 branding alive and well. Unclear on when Fox would revert the station's newscast title from Q13 News to Q13 Fox News. Whether KZJO would be rebranded as Q13 Plus, that is unclear as well. https://www.q13fox.com/

    Also, while Fox News performs well in the ratings with right-wing pundits, it's increasingly becoming less profitable to run conservative commentary shows because of the toxicity tied to their content. Once Fox News decided to go down the rabbit hole of using racism as a propaganda and fear tactic, they've been losing sponsors left and right for their prime time shows. The only reason why they haven't changed course is because of the audience they're able to pull. For some reason though, Fox is not valuing revenue and trying to balance it with the audience: instead of being seen as necessary equals, audience trumps revenue for them. When any other network realizes its programming is unprofitable, they would dump the content that's not working in favor of something else. OANN likely is being passed by major advertisers for the same reason as well as for the bad reputation it gets for commentary that is absent logic and reason, to put it nicely. For CNBC to go down that route would end up resulting in the network not being able to, as one of its slogans says, "Profit from It" down the line.

    It was trapped in new member verification, but you might want to take a look at the post above yours now. I'd say that's confirmation.

    For Nexstar's sake, I hope this isn't a flop. It's got potential, and they seem to have the people, so now they just need to stick the landing. Very impressive investment so far. I'll be eagerly waiting to see the first shows and the initial ratings, although I'm not sure what you can really compare then with. I wonder if they'll advertise News Nation on all of their stations? That might be a quick way to kick start viewership.

    i see the new "CNN" (Canned NewsNet) has claimed another victim... funny how mister eric "low power station of the year" wotila has turned his quaint little operation into something that allows owners to threaten their employees... hope its all worth it, assholes... these stations will have NO newscasts once CNN cuts off the newsource gravy train... do they even know...?

    I just saw a mock up of the new set and I was pleasantly surprised. This doesn't look like it will be a Nexstar-style set. The elements look somewhat European. Clean lines, minimalist, open. WFLA has the space for it so it will be exciting to see the company moving in this direction.

    It’s been that way for years: No morning or 5:00 news, and they have Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy at 6:00 (opposite the hour-long news on KTUU and KTVA). But back in the early 1980’s (when they were KIMO), they couldn’t be touched. All that changed when Maria Downey headed off to Channel 2, who paired her with new young hire John Tracy; faster than you can say John Pruitt and Monica Kaufman Pearson...they never looked back.

    Gold standard in terms of implementation of the theme(/graphics).

    Yeah...sounds like somebody’s telling on themselves here.

    Well yeah. It was professionally designed. It has a purpose. It wasn't trying to appeal to the lower common denominator. I mean, you can't convince me you don't want this umbrella. It wasn't trying to one-up their competitors with another flashy Hothaus pack, or whatever Linear Drift is doing with the | | | | | | | 's and > > > > > > > 's. This works. This is what TV stations should be striving for if they want to have a cohesive brand, not only on television but online. Armin nailed it at the end with the following: ...and it's true. Local TV stations generally have awful branding led with some people with zero understanding about the visual arts medium, yet this community is still adamant with sticking with the status quo. And yet people (not specifically you @channel2) wonder why he doesn't talk about local television, while WTSP has proven they are capable of producing gems like this one.

    Bad idea. The last thing we need is another partisan soapbox taking up air time. While it may be an attempt to balance out MSNBC, it's way too late to try and rectify that. And if it means the end of American Greed, I'm really going to be pissed.

    Of course, the entire "extended basic" lineup of channels we've come to know have all morphed from their intended niches into a feast or famine of lowest-common-denominator content. Some more than others (like Court TV morphing into truTV) and whatever the heck Viacom did to VH1 and MTV. At least CNBC sticks to their roots during business hours. If they really wanted to go hardcore, simply combine the business programming from both sides of the globe, since CNBC World is reruns during the day in our neck of the woods, the markets are open while we're all asleep. It's going to take a lot for the "news" networks to ever shift their focus. Fox News threw down the gauntlet against the "liberal" media, and when it became apparent through the strong opinions of their hosts, MSNBC acted accordingly and went in the other direction. CNN on the other hand, went off the deep end when some NBC reject who almost drove them into the ground took the helm, and all we heard about were lost planes and his BFF who used to host a show that "fired" people. As for moderating, I don't think the networks are coming closer to the center, there are fringes that are going even further in opposite directions like OAN and TYT. Not even a global pandemic, or solid facts will bring us together at this point. It's a start to try and do a straight newscast, but it's an uphill battle the way things are going and headed.

    CNBC is such a different audience than the Today Show. He'll be fine. They probably learned from mistakes made with Megyn and Greta and realized that it would be safer to put him somewhere like CNBC than to thrust him onto MSNBC or the network.

    Too bad Q13 has to switch to new graphics. IMHO, the current Trib graphics are one of the best-looking graphics packages.

    Not sure how many of you will care about this, but: The current version of the Action News opening theme premiered sometime between September 5, 1996 and October 19, 1996, likely right after the infamous orchestral version of the theme was scrapped.

    We’re heading into 4 months of social distancing, how hard is it to deep clean the place (which should have happen 3 months ago) and come up with comprehensive plan to create a ‘new normal’ so people can get back to work (particularly at CBSN). Most days, Anne Marie and Vladimir look like they just rolled out of bed. CBS really needs to get it together.

    Prayers are going out to former New York and current Harrisburg, PA anchor Robb Hanrahan of CBS 21 (WHP) who had suffered a massive heart attack yesterday. He's recovering in the ICU after a second surgery. Thoughts are with The Hanrahan Family and Robb's colleagues at CBS 21, and prayers for a full recovery to Robb and to his family at this difficult time. https://www.pennlive.com/news/2020/06/cbs-21-anchor-robb-hanrahan-still-in-icu-but-made-a-nice-step-after-heart-attack-wife-says.html

    Via TitanTV, KCOP/My 13 (part of the Fox-owned duopoly in LA) is shuffling its lineup, replacing double runs of Cops and Live PD with morning runs of Extra/TMZ and overnight runs of America Says/Millionaire. Separately, TitanTV also has KCOP displacing syndicated early-afternoon runs of Chicago PD and Dateline to shift MyNetworkTV programming out of pattern (1-3 PT) and test programming from the Fox Soul streaming service in primetime from 8-10 PT, effective 6/22.

    WYMT Close 1993. This is what happened at the end of the newscast on WYMT's second set. Getting ready for a new set. The female anchor was carried off the set and staff started to cut the background out.

    So apparently Univision in San Diego has a new package... I hate to say it, but it looks nicer than the Scripps package and uses a lot of the same colors.
  48. 3 points
    The graphics have finally made it to San Diego. On-air, they are finally adding their network affiliation as part of their spoken branding: "ABC 10News", prior to this, they've been simply called "10News" since the 90s. Not really feeling the tone of the graphics at all, oh well. The set's lights and colors really need to change to comply with the new graphics but I doubt that will happen.

    CNN is still on television, color me shocked! First time tuning to their channel in the past little while, and it's so refreshing to see such objective, non-biased reporting in their chyrons. (rolls eyes) Doesn't matter what your politics are, if you care anything about this business, you should realize how bad this looks towards the profession. Report without bias first, ask questions later, and share opinions late at night.
