  1. tsk tsk, some of you are SO quick to jump to your own conclusions and decisions about this thing. I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is a long game. They didn't pour X amount of dollars into NewsNation just to sell it off with the rest of WGNA. NewsNation is the first step in a much larger idea to (more than likely) create another CNN or FOX News. NewsNation as a show may not live forever, but you don't pour that kind of money into an operation if you aren't playing the long game (5-10 years). There are logical next steps they can take to gain viewership and exponentia

  3. Trust me, we know. I bet this industry would stay stuck in the early 2000's if TVNT had its way.

  5. Hello all, The forum software has been updated to the latest version. There are a few new things here and there, but overall, not much has changed in the way things work. You may notice a brand new look. The old forum theme is not compatible with the new software, so we've finally pulled the trigger on switching over to the new theme teased earlier this year. This theme features a dark mode (triggerable via the moon in the top user bar). The new theme is still being worked on, so expect some minor changes here and there over the next few days. -Weeters

  8. Hard to believe, it is now been 25 years ago today Milwaukee Television News and WITI-TV would never be the same. Tonight, TVNT remembers a Milwaukee Television icon... the late, great Vince Gibbens. His colleagues refer to him as Capt. Ad-Lib (Vince ad-libs on his news stories and reports). Vince worked at various stations starting in Providence, RI (WJAR), then joined WISN-TV from 1978 to 1981. After a stint in Sacramento, he returned to Milwaukee in '82 to join WITI-TV (Then CBS - Now FOX) where he worked with so many greats; Kim Devore, Mike Miller, Nancy Laffey, John Drilling,

  9. Trump losing the election is what finally shut him up. The mainstream media is done with him and his followers will follow him to the fringes of the far-right. Even Fox News sort of came to their senses by calling Arizona well before the rest of the media world. As for CNN, it's going to be interesting. Jeff Zucker threw down the gauntlet with endless coverage over a single subject starting with the missing plane, and we all know what came up next. Well, at least we have the COVID mess for likely the next 6 months to keep CNN on their toes. So sad it's come to

  17. I’m going to miss the Tribune graphics. FOX is the only company to make graphics outside of their O&O markets look and controlled very good. I dig the new mic flags for WITI. Makes them very reminiscent of the horizontal box kite look, but without the box kite. Another thing is that I wish they kept the Tribune graphics as openers and transitions, and replace the bottom graphics and ticker with the O&O look just like what FOX did to WNYW, as an example

  18. It was an assumption on who made it. WPVI didn't tell me who is making the new graphics package But I know we will all like it compared to what the other O&O's are rolling out.................................. And yes so far the schedule on rollout is ight and confirmed by Disney themselves. He's right. The stations (as of now) will have all the freedom with music. But with the graphics, everything will be standardized (rather that station wants it or not) WPVI is keeping MCTYW But it may be a new modern remastered version "it's up in the air music

  21. Me again...so sorry! I had the opportunity to go by the space again tonight and even spoke with two engineers for the network. There are studios on at least three different floors of the building - first, seventh, and eighth. The streetside studio space and adjoining newsroom space will be primarily dedicated to MTP. However there is a spot of the studio that directly overlooks the newsroom that might be used for MSNBC dayside according to the people I spoke with. They are hoping to move into the studio after the election - sometime late November into January. The spa

  22. I agree. Whether or not there's a new package coming, there's nothing to really discuss at this time. Those that know about it can't share info, and the rest of us are merely speculating. No real need to continue this until some tangible evidence starts to surface.

  23. Here's the NewsNation graphics and animation Then, look at Tegna graphics Lastly, look at the Scripps package (from ABC7 KMGH Denver) What do all these have in common? These motion graphics look like they were done on After Effects. No 3-D looking whatsoever like most other stations. I should know, I use After Effects myself. IMO, these graphics and news opens look simple and fun to make. Are there any other stations using news opens and motion graphics the same way? PLEASE NOTE: this is NOT a list thread, nor will

  26. Wow, that's actually a pretty nice upgrade over the standard Sinclair look. Gotta be an in-house job though—doubt this is a sign of things to come for other Sinclair stations. Reminiscent of the pre-diagrid Hearst days when a few stations started to design their own interpretations of the corporate look—e.g. WESH, or WISN's outsourcing to Hothaus.

  27. With Election Day 9 days away, the btm0815ma channel has uploaded ABC News coverage of the 1982, 1984, 1988 and 1992 Election Night coverage. The 1984 and 1988 uploads are of particular interest (at least to me) due to this being the first time more than a handful of brief snippets of ABC's coverage from 1984 and 1988 have surfaced on YouTube compared to CBS, NBC and (for 1988) CNN. btm0815ma YouTube channel

  28. Man, where did this guy get this recording from? That Breaking News open definitely running at a crispy 60fps, and I love it. Is WKRN airing in 60fps? I'd assume they may be switching at 60 but transmitting at 29.97, unless I'm missing something? Either way, I think this package is an excellent fit. Also, mad props to the talent for just rolling with the punches off the top. I've seen an anchor or two absolutely crash and burn when stuff goes wrong, so good on them.

  30. Pluto TV is now making all ten CBS Local services available nationwide. Previously, users could only access CBSN New York and CBSN Los Angeles, while the other eight services were geolocked to their respective markets due to limited channel space allocated to Pluto's news tier. To make room for the Chicago, Bay Area, Philadelphia, Dallas-Fort Worth, Boston, Denver, Minnesota and Pittsburgh services, Pluto created a dedicated "Local" tier, currently occupying channels 1021-1031 (with 1028 unused, given CBSTVS hasn't launched CBSN services in Baltimore, Sacramento and Miami yet).

  31. I'm all for customizing a package, if it looks good and not "hacked" together. Sometimes all it takes is changing an accent color or two. Of course, most of us on here have seen so many of these packs that you can tell when part of one is part of another, or if it's "ripped off" another. The average viewer will not likely notice such things.

  34. Lester is finally back in the main studio tonight for the first time since the pandemic began I believe. I’ve missed all the cool shots they can do there! They stopped cool shots even before the pandemic and normally just did OTS shots except on Sundays but it seems they brought it all back.

  37. No one's saying to celebrate Lauer, but he was a part of the show's history. The show had no problem keeping him around when ratings were good, they should also have to bear the weight of his disgrace. When you're guilty of enabling, you don't get to erase him from historically important material and act like he never existed. Like 9/11, for example. He was there. Deal with it.

  38. You know what would be interesting? If Stephen Arnold still has the WWL package(s) available for use. And if Nexstar has a deal with Arnold...... Over on WVUE, the old Sinclair News Package cuts are now part of U-Phonix, and they use them!!!

  39. It really is a step up for WGNO. The set is really nice and way up there with what WWL and WDSU have. I wonder if WVUE is looking to change theirs any time soon, it now pales in comparison. Given the launch circumstances, it's likely a work in progress with tweaks to come in the coming days or weeks. It's going to take an external effort for viewers to notice these changes, so hopefully their ad buys on radio, digital and billboards are staying up there. I did see a lot of the "News With A Twist" billboards last time I was in New Orleans (back in December, before all the c

  45. I'm not exactly sure what you mean by Tweet pages, but his Twitter account has not been removed. It's still there. https://twitter.com/lipoftv Instead of broadly claiming he is biased, the more appropriately thing to do would be to cite specific instances in which you feel he stated something biased. If you have examples, please share them.
