  1. 1) local station probably didn’t went to spend money on a custom design - nor did they have the time 2) it literally matters to absolutely no one outside of this website if a set looks similar to one in a different market

  4. I'll be glad to see the 'we're bad at branding so just use the news name awkwardly' trend is beginning to end with them...doubtful WFTS just goes back to "ABC 28", but I have never liked the awkwardness of "Dr. Phil, today at 4 on Newschannel 12'" and such plugs.

  5. I don’t think there are many users here who are rude. However there are dedicated spaces and rules here to keep conversations on track, and avoid the regular topics from descending into pure speculation (Speculatron 9000). A disregard of the terms of use and rules is actually quite rude imo. Not an attack, just an observation. I think you’re a great member.

  6. you’ll be a great manager one day. That’s not how “full-time”/part-time status works with television news talent. There is no counting of hours as there is with regular 9-5 jobs. Somebody could work 10 hours a week and anchor an hour show weekly and get paid a handsome salary.

  8. WCAU studios being in the headquarters of Comcast gives them easier access to the execs. Rockefeller Plaza is no longer the center of all things NBC; therefore the prominence of ‘CAU has risen. It is the 4th largest market (Philadelphia) so that shouldn’t be surprising. Of course WNBC is the East Coast “Flagship” and KNBC is it’s West Coast Counterpart. But WCAU is definitely at the top of the NBC O&O’s food chain. The money poured into the station would definitely make it a contender for “flagship” lite.

  9. CBS News did a Special Report with full coverage of the hearing. It was an "optional" special report for local affiliates. Some stations aired the coverage, some stuck with regular programming. If your local CBS station did not run the special report, I'd suggest your gripe is with them, not the network.

  11. WTVJ just launched Look S along with a new set... Bad news: It's time to say goodbye to the long lived WTVJ custom theme; Good news: They're using the KNBC's updated version of LA Groove The new set looks kinda sexy~ I made a quick capture of the first 5 minutes if y'all are interested. Again I'm sure someone will post a better montage on YouTube so I'm not gonna upload it to YT. https://streamable.com/0r6hy5

  14. 7pm newscasts have been attempted with varying success for 5 decades. There's no guarantee the recent batch of them will stick. Even with unstable host positions, it's hard to argue against the continued success of 2 of the top half dozen shows in syndication.

  15. ABC13 Houston anchor/reporter Steven Romo announced his engagement to FOX 26 and future Fox weather meteorologist Stephen Morgan on his social media pages. In the announcement Romo also said he’s moving to NYC soon and will be leaving ABC13.

  16. UPDATE: Just read on the Nexstar channel on Discord that the new set/studio is coming in September. It’s likely coming with a total rebrand, and they have added staff. They could even be adding on to the building. They are also planning on more newscasts. So my guess is that GDC will be expanded into the 9-10am hour and an 11pm news will be added, with Charlotte Sports Live moving to 11:30. I would expect to see the Nexstar graphics in September. Who knows, they might even change the name of the morning news.

  18. After a few years, WMC-TV modified its logo and branding once again as of 4:00pm yesterday, going back to just Action News 5 without the call letters. Graphics have not changed. New logo: Previous logo: They have also adopted the slogan "Taking Action For You" after years of going without an official one on their newscasts (Only saying "With all of today's Breaking News, WMC Action News 5 at _____ starts now!") I do have my criticisms about the new logo: 1) They ditched the steamboat, which had been a part of the station'

  19. Beware of that Steven Walsh guy. He just reposts other people's videos. He has taken IDs from videos posted by The ID Junkie/Junkie's Tape Bin, Ntropolis, Rochester TV Archive, Channel 37, and others hours after those channels have uploaded their own videos. He gives no credit or does not ask prior to reposting other people's captures. I recommend not supporting users like him.

  26. My thoughts are I can't see ABC O&Os dumping their Wheel/Jeopardy hour just to do 7pm news. It's been a staple since 1990 and it's worked tremedously for the ABC O&Os, CBS has no issues letting the ABC O&Os air the shows they distribute since CBS Media Ventures/Television Distribution inherited it from KingWorld why fix a good thing? I don't believe the ABC O&Os feels or should feel any pressure at all from their competitors to compete for local news at 7pm, plus it'd be awkward to see for example Jeopardy on at 3:30 on WPVI in order to facilitate Action News at 7pm.

  28. Indeed-- I think WJZ in Baltimore (CBS O&O in Charm City) made a bad mistake when they became just WJZ News (dropping the Eyewitness part).

  30. Speaking of branding, I fear WPTV might be doing away with the "News Channel 5" branding, and renaming themselves as WPTV News. This Friday, the 23rd, they're debuting a new 7pm newscast called "WPTV News at 7pm". Not liking these generic names.

  31. I wouldn't call this a new logo. They kept the "41" typeface and recolored it. And add the callsign below. That's it.

  34. Those lowers in the 5PM tease are expanded snipes from Look N's topical promo graphics. I always thought they should have been the standard lowers for that package instead of the whole cable news-esque inserts they went with. That said they clash with Looks S. Also someone should tell them they're two weather packages behind. They're still using the original Look N weather templates.

  38. It looks like they're still using the Look F geographic map wipes (e.g. "Manhattan", "New Jersey"), but the package is so iterative that I suppose they still match. Overall looks great, lovely animations and typography. Glad to be rid of the grey bar on the bottom of Look F!

  39. I don't see Hearst doing a second update to the diagrid graphics (or diagrid 3.0). If anything, I'd probably see a new package from scratch being rolled out, and that won't be for another few years at least. Also, by the time Hearst does introduce new graphics, I see a different music package coming with the new graphics. I say this because I've only seen one update to an existing graphics package before an entirely-new package gets rolled out: • Camera 1.0 – introduced in 1995, Image News package • Camera 2.0 – an updated version of the camera graphics introduced in 1

  40. When Tamron’s show was originally picked up, it was by the ABC O&O group, including WLS. Because they could not find room on the schedule, it was sublicensed to WCIU. So I believe WLS was able to get it back when the opportunity presented itself. No way Live with Kelly and Ryan is going anywhere. It used to air on WGN and when the opportunity presented itself WLS grabbed it. I feel like WLS over the years has attempted to match the schedule of it’s sister stations, and it’s basically achieved that now.

  41. I’m honestly shocked how much Nexstar invested in WDTN, currently the best set in town. Probably the nicest set since the one they had back in 94 when they were owned by Hearst.

  44. Those graphics are just…ok. The placement of the NBC peacock on that modified logo is a bit strange, and almost too small. If the peacock is a must, they should’ve reverted back to this version from when they rejoined NBC.

  45. WLS is running a version of it, too, and it's really weird. They promote Jeopardy! at 3:30, Eyewitness News at 5, and WNT at 5:30, completely skipping over the juggernaut 4pm news. That stacked rundown at the end of the spot looks ridiculous, making it seem like J! is 90 minutes, which any sane person knows isn't true.

  46. Maybe I'm just over every set now being a video wall, but there's something about the simplicity and purity of that blue newsroom that feels refreshing.

  47. Do you think it is possible that Sam Champion is human just like us and might have a variety of reasons why he could not or did not want to be available to work on his scheduled day off? We have had storms classified as tropical storms hit the area before — twice last summer — and storms hit that have done far worse. There has been much talk of how early in the season Elsa is for a hurricane/tropical storm, yet, just last year we had a tropical storm affect NYC on July 10. While it was a news event that warranted additional coverage and some special reports, there was nothin

  48. While the normal KNTV opens look pretty rough, this special open, unbranded for random, primetime sports usage, is very clean. The white end screen is a nice alternative, and the station logo looks better, not being forced to stay between the vertical lines of the primary opens.

  49. Truth to be told. Absolutely no one. In the age of streaming and all of that I believe the only way how stations like KDNL and WTWC ever sees newscasts again on their stations is through regional consolidation of TV stations.
