    If I had things my way, I would have KUSA commission a new theme. Take the musical signature of the 1995 theme and create an update to it. Alan Koshiyama knocked it out of the park with the 2011 KDVR/KWGN themes. I think he could do just as a fine job with a theme for KUSA.

    I think I’ll stick with what we have... however I like the music on the French one... I can’t stand all the junk floating above the lower thirds as an intro with the bubbles and arrows.... it’s much more cluttered than anything you get here... American consumers would find this... boring... they aren’t really interested in straight news as much as confrontation and excitement... that’s the part that really needs changing before we talk graphics... I actually ended up not going into the business because I got to see the sausage being embellished to dress up a story and it didn’t feel right... the photographer I got to ride around with was from Britain.. didn’t get along with him often but I did manage to get him to talk about the differences between his time at the BBC and his time state side... fascinating conversation...

    Disney owns the FX trademarks. I doubt they’ll drop that brand. Half of 20th Century Fox was 20th Century Pictures, from which the searchlight tower logo, the fanfare, and Darryl F. Zanuck were carried over in the first place. So this is almost a full-circle rebrand!

    Heck, they could make it without other groups.

    WTMJ is in bad need of a new set (or at least a major refresh), especially since they started wallpapering it and removing duratrans, leaving the LED back lighting exposed (behind the plexi on either side of the desk). They now have the oldest set in the market, and both WITI and WDJT have essentially received two new sets in the period that WTMJ set has been up. My fear is, since their studio is round, they'll be convinced that the best use of the space is a green wall and floor.

    Stations in Florida and other hurricane-prone markets have been doing this for decades.

    I can see the difference between the darker version vs the light version, I'll attach the 2 screenshots I think the 2020 layout is ok but could use improvements like the ability to view latest posts without much effort that for me was one of my pet peeves about this layout. For now I'll stick to the default layout

    Wtmj radio had absolutely 0 percent influence on tmj4, Scripps had so little interest in running radio stations that the radio VP for Scripps at the time basically begged Scripps into selling the radio stations. It’s no secret that the mostly veteran staff at wtmj was highly paid and for many when renewal time came a Scripps contract would never come close to a Journal contract. Scripps is hiring 22 year old mmj’s even in its largest markets that are making less than photojournalists that have been at the station for 30-35 years. Many times managers will cook up some bad performance reviews if they want to push out or demoted staffers. If the company sent out fraudulent documents to the EEOC that is obviously very concerning. Scripps has people in corporate that basically help the local stations in hiring and retaining people. With Cincy having such a large role in decision making at the local level if there is any wrong doing, it’s going to be difficult for Scripps to blame it all on a rogue staffer or two.

    I won't go so far as to say it's one of the worst, but as I've said a few times, this package sounds more like it is for Newsy. I see your point about this package for broadcast stations, though.....

    It took KDFW until 2017 to make the weather graphics match up to the 2012 O&O look.

    Meanwhile here's the WFLX news open with the new graphics. All I'm gonna say is what in the name of frankfurt is the WFLX logo?

    We have all-staff meetings twice a year. It's no big deal. But in this case, KTLA might be naming its new general manager.

    I streamed a little bit of What's New and (at least the part I saw) is pretty much Lunch Break...just at 5pm. The show itself isn't bad, it's just not what people want to watch.

    Tell it to "KYC management and Tegna, they're screwing everything up. They need to listen to the people. They want traditional newscast back.

    I seen that video. It was so cringy. They need to go back to Channel 3 News. Immediately because this is getting ridiculous.

    Interesting. They already produce PA Newsmakers which is distributed across the Commonwealth. I guess they wanted a more locally focused program for Harrisburg.

    As for the silly news titles, can you think of anything sillier than Eyewitness News and Action News? Sure, they have been with us for a long time, so we're used to them, but if you think about it, both titles just scream consultant-driven gimmickry.

    Ok so they already changed its 7PM for Tonight with Cassidy. Now, they wanna change their 6PM news to The Story with Dan Haggerty? What now? A WKYC West version where every single broadcast gets a different feel now? I wanna be the first to welcome KGW to fourth place now. Guess I'll be watching FOX 12 Oregon for my 6PM news (though I don't live there. Lol.)

    Other than WOWK, Nexstar hasn't done much to the ex-WVMH stations. They're STILL on the KTLA look from long ago.

    Since things I bring up on here keep getting fixed: I'm not sure if this is isolated just to the stream or what, but they've gotten into a bad habit of airing CNN packages that are being mixed wrong in their control room, and have no voiceover track (or sometimes any voices at all) once it hits the stream. This is pretty normal in TV news, where stories will be edited so the left audio channel contains VO and the right contains "NAT" (natural) sound. These are then turned back into "stereo" in the audio console in the control room. Pay attention to those audio meters, kiddos.

    In all likelihood, WJZY's URL will stay the same...at least for the foreseeable future.

    So the discontinuation of MI News 26 is extremely sloppy, and from the outside seems to be happening with no thought put into it. The old minews26.com website is being updated as of Friday, but things like weather have frozen in time, being last updated before the transition to Newsnet. Even their own website still features the MI News 26 schedule, with only the website header image referencing the transition to "Newsnet" from MI News 26. The stream appears to have ceased working, and again, there's no redirection to the working Newsnet stuff. It's kind of sad that they've just completely trashed the relatively good idea of hyperlocal news coverage for CNN Lite, and are too busy caught up with trying to make that happen to even transition away from the hyperlocal thing right.

    I’ve been told by a well placed source that the new NBCUniversal Boston Media Center - the new home of WBTS, WNEU, NECN and NBC Sports Boston is expected to open Sunday January 19. The $125 million dollar project was announced in August 2018. The new facility is going to be 160,000 sq ft will have six broadcast studios and one designated for podcasting. Right now WNEU currently has to share with studio space with NECN.

    Unlikely ATM. Tegna will never let WKYC go

    I honestly don't even know if there are any complaints in Cleveland about this, but I wouldn't be completely shocked if there are. They do need to listen to the people, but they won't. And while TEGNA has screwed with most of their stations, WKYC got screwed up with the most. And that needs to change.

    I guess the CW O&O in Seattle (KSTW) is not mentioned on those plans, but then again, neither is WFOR's sister station, MyNetworkTV affiliate WBFS or KTVT's independent sister station KTXA.

    Is it just me or does that L3 look like an updated version of the package that’s being phased out? it almost looks like the graham L3s.

    Konrad did a "small" tribute to McGill on the morning show yesterday (1/7). I'm surprised the higher ups at Nexstar would allow this.

    I don't believe the station was ever off the air, and I think they still had their usual Sunday morning news. The fire did impact its phone system (some numbers and extensions stopped working) as well as some other technical issues.

    WSOC quietly added an hour long 7PM newscast on WAXN, anchored by Damany Lewis and Allison Latos.

    I think the content on The TODAY Show first 2 hours is better now than it was between 2008 and 2013. The format/tone 10-15 years ago is a bit outdated now. Remember there are other ways to watch the show now. People can not DVR it and also watch it online later. Ratings only count homes not business like hospitals, gym, etc,. We live in much fast apce society. There probably other reasons why people are not watching these shows like they used to but I am not going to get into that aspect of it here.

    Valid point about ABC making updates to the WNT set is ABC can't and doesn't need to be becoming complacent. Besides set and studio updates, we could see graphics updates as well. We'll have to see how things play out.

    The fun is right now even WKBW, in Buffalo where I'm stuck, has 5 full-time meteorologists. They also had 8 at one point last year. I don't mind the 4 meteorologist system, but even someone from WPVI would be an improvement over Raleigh-Durham stations. Ultimately, a freelance is probably the best approach.

    I don't know why they would go to the trouble of another remodel when they're a couple years out from moving to Hudson Yards though... I could see this being a permanent spot for This Week for 2020 to be honest--a lot of the BG elements look too produced for it to be a one-off as it is, and the execution was solid.

    We can maybe hope that Tegna is at least considering going to go back to actual news, but like @TheRolyPoly said I'll reserve celebrating until we see changes towards actual news coverage. And given the fact that ridiculous rebrand at WKYC took effect just this year and they just doubled down on it, I'm not yet convinced Tegna is going to be smart going forward. Time will tell what direction Tegna heads. But in whatever case, please dump C Clarity.

    yet as long as the owner keeps putting cash into the furnace, NewsNet will continue for the foreseeable future. I don't understand why people don't just give up or think about it before going into this business.

    Like a major news story, I thought this deserved a SPECIAL GRAPHIC, but in light of recent debuts, this is all we're gonna get...
