    Well, turns out the new racing Foxbox can go back and forth between vertical and horizontal view.

    If he wasn't living so far away and occasionally filling a similar role at WTMJ, I'd say it's a possibility. The job listing on their website is asking for minimum 5 years experience, versus the usual 3-5, and they're looking for large market experience, so they seemingly want more of a veteran.

    WLWT aired a promo last night for their 70th anniversary, and in that promo included someone watching a newscast from their phone. It had the lower third and bug from the new diagrid look in there. Turned on their news tonight and no new graphics at all! They played us.

    It's a bit late, but I actually decided to see how WXIA opted to implement the package. Since the Olympics are coming up (and I want to take video captures of NBC's presentation and keep them for myself,) I also decided to give Bandicam a spin and capture WXIA's intro. For starters, the headlines shown in the intro are slightly pixelated (I don't think that was a problem with Bandicam), which just looks bad. It also doesn't seem as if the music is properly synced up with the segue from the headlines to the actual open. Kind of sloppy if you ask me. Other stations seem to have a better handle on this, so I think that's just WXIA screwing things up. Speaking of the music, my overall opinion is unchanged - I like the overall melody but don't think those weird vocals have any place in the intro for a "serious" newscast. I couldn't get the other bits and pieces on video, but I do like the music cut WXIA uses for the "Storm Trackers" intro. The "NXT" screen I could definitely live without.

    I think Ed's voice sounds just fine. A little deeper, perhaps. Not much different from when my station was using him in the late '80s-early '90s. Certainly not as raspy as Charlie Van Dyke.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb here, and predict that if any other Hearst stations debut the new graphics in the short-term, it'll be the group's other NBC affiliates Ditto. I think, at the very least, WBAL WLWT, WDSU and KCRA will debut the next-gen diagrid package when the first events begin Thursday or when the Opening Ceremonies take place on Friday (the Olympics this year is scheduled in an odd manner, so that a handful of events begin the day before the Opening Ceremonies, instead of the day after as usual). WGAL, WXII, WYFF and WVTM may opt to introduce them then too on either Thursday or Friday; WPTZ/WNNE I'm not so sure of.

    Dear God, them’s some bright colors for 5am. Snagged this from Charlotte Today on WCNC. In other news, looks like the L3 also handle graphics as well.

    What's funny about the vertical running order is that this is how everyone used to display it back in the 90s. Now we're getting a modern 16:9 take on it.

    And WXIA still has a voiceover. Is WBIR still using a voiceover and are they still mentioning they're in HD?

    The question is, are they still being rolled out by affiliation (ABC has the Academy Awards coming up on March 4. CBS doesn’t have any more eyeball-grabbers left this season) or just randomly. Some stations are throwing photographic backgrounds on the seven-day

    That new show is not new... its called This is Us and is in its second season plus probably renewed for a third.

    Compare them to what the Canadian channels use for curling, and that's another contrast.

    Apparently WSAV's TVbD-esque look began at the tail-end of their short ABC affiliation, also in the vid are two ids most likely related to their news theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=lZ8Tu6Ybqsg;m=7;s=1
