    Sticking to Phoenix... This legit took 4 and 1/2 hours to make. I bet it’s gonna get worse when I get to Minneapolis-St. Paul...

    Agree with others above.... great look and it's never a bad thing to go back to a previous news package... even better if they ever decide to mix in a few custom "Back Home Again in Indiana" In-Sink cuts here and there. It's a nice touch that they were able to keep 615/Warner-Chappell for their music vendor, so maybe there's hope for other stations, especially former legacy LIN stations like WOOD-TV and WAVY-10, to keep their long-standing audio branding.

    Why would they send their news to the hub only to have the hub send it back to the transmitter? When the NBC O&Os were hubbed from 30 Rock each station's production control sent the signal from the control room directly to the transmitter. The hub could monitor it, but the signal did not go to the hub first. Each station also had a router panel (or panels) located in the control rooms and (in some cases) the station's original master control areas so the stations could have local control. I'm not saying you're wrong, but that doesn't sound correct. That is how Fox does it as well. In fact, their master control automation has a hub mode and a spoke mode in which the local station can take control away from the hub if need be, and when they are done give control back to the hub with a click of a mouse. So let me get this straight. There are no longer local MCOs at each CBS O&O station, but Encompass is controlling equipment that is still located at each station (also called centralcasting). Given that it's an O&O, they should still have the equipment and personnel to take control away from the hub during breaking news or other high value programming.

    Okay. I wasn’t sure how it was set up. Some like NBC and Fox just send their newscasts to the hubs while the rest of the programming is played out from Centennial (NBC) and Las Vegas (Fox). Some stations I’ve heard have enough equipment that they do it all locally if need be.

    I've been downloading all of RIck's old LA TV clips so I can recover them all for you in the likely event of his acoount getting teminated. If it happens, contact him at videoscan1970@gmail.com to convice him to open a new account (or to just send him a thank you letter for all the work he's done uploading these one of a kind videos!). And now, here's an overnight rebroadcast of News 4 New York from April 28, 1993, during it's tabloid phase:

    Wow. WISH had that same 70s set for 30 years? Impressive.

    Oh!! I remember that era/error. The complete abandonment of the venerable "Eyewitness News" history and tradition was another mistake of that time period. Despite repeated missteps that have been made over the years - there is a proud tradition at this station. By adapting to today's rapid-fire style of "Breaking News" TV journalism with a groundbreaking / torch-bearing approach should be their way to restore their leadership, success, ratings and most importantly credibility. Forging the future while respecting the past will be a huge task for whomever takes over this news operation. But sometimes you need to look back to find the way forward - and quite possibly with the support of an amazing "KYW-Proud" alumni they can find their way. Diane Allen – Susan Barnett- Steve Baskerville – Steve Bell – Richard Bey - Al Primo (creator of the Eyewitness News format) − Pat Ciarrocchi – Mort Crim – Mike Douglas − Tamsen Fadal – Max Gomez – Trudy Haynes − Marc Howard – Walt Hunter – Jack Jones − Larry Kane – Ernie Kovacs − Maria LaRosa – Alycia Lane – Matt Lauer – Robin Mackintosh – Larry Mendte – Andrea Mitchell – Kathy Orr - Jerry Penacoli – Malcolm Poindexter − Maury Povich – Jessica Savitch - Maria Shriver – Tom Snyder - Dick Standish - Dawn Stensland − Beverly Williams – Joe Witte – and many more. Enough preaching and pontificating...now let's get back to some REAL NEWS.

    Some WNYT coverage of the 2002 Olympics - plus a promo for its weather team of four meteorologists, and a glimpse at Kelly Lynch doing the weekend news in her second of three stints there. Fun fact: I listen to her and Chuck Custer every morning!

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's just an expanded edition of the CBS Evening News from August of 1973. Which is still good, as likely the only other existing copy is Vandy's B&W recording. I'm sure Rick will find something from The Big News soon, he's rumored to have over 4,000 tapes of old LA TV recordings!

    Just a reminder. Tomorrow, former WJBF NewsChannel 6 anchor/reporter Archith Seshadri is to make his game show debut as a contestant on The $100,000 Pyramid at 9/8 Central on ABC. https://www.wjbf.com/news/top-videos/former-newschannel-6-anchor-conestant-on-100-000-pyramid_20180622221108/1256948810

    They’re already doing it. NBC has NEWBERT controlled from Stamford and most of PAC 12 games are punched back at their HQ.

    Not really a new logo. It’s the same 4 logofont. They just dropped the very dated tv screen surround.

    Oh yeah today WJZ either intentionally or accidentally triggered their election ticker around 3:15 during Dr. Phil. Unlike a few years back in Detroit at I believe WXYZ they didn’t have any percentages attributed to any candidates. Rather the real candidates were listed but each had 0 votes. Aside from the updated logo nothing changed. With the stations now running on a hubbed master controll would the box inserting the ticker be at the station or remote? Now I’m trying to remember past elections if the ticker was designed to be nestled perfectly under their Chyron or if they decided to squeeze the regular program picture. I’m also trying to remember if they stuck with the CBS News style graphics when they went local during the 2016 style. Edit: During CBS News coverage they used the CBS ticker and when local they used their own. And their local ticker was slightly different.

    “WOULD YOU PUT YOUR MOTHER IN A PLACE LIKE THIS?!” WNBC must’ve hired a new news director in 1992/93, and if they did I bet they were affiliated with a certain Channel 7 station in Florida.

    Some wonderful network material (including segments of the CBS Morning News) in this 1972 compilation:

    Small markets don't usually post ratings, but I'd assume KRBC/KTAB dominates.

    I think CBS forced that decision on Tegna.

    Any update on branding? Is it now News 8? Is there still a 24-Hour News reference mixed on there?

    I'm also pretty surprised they went back to In-Sink. Set looks great. Graphics look pretty good. All in all, a nice new look for WISH-TV. I like it!

    And we have InSink again I'm shocked they didn't flip to an SAM package

    I also noticed that the "We Are WFAA" promo used the meaning behind the call sign.

    Lost in the lede: Four staffers are out, including reporter Jimmy Marlow to WVIT and weekend meteorologist Greg Pollack to WNYT (where he coincidentally interned while at UAlbany). I wonder who WTEN has taken from: WRGB going full Sinclair or WNYT entering a bit of an unstable period.

    From the Philippines, Jojo Bailon's View on the 3rd Facebook, the final segment of ABS-CBN's TV Patrol from November 14, 2000. This one has: Presenter Noli De Castro, before he joined politics, in a live shot Marc Logan, the Jeanne Moos of the Philippines according to one commenter Philippine politics (very strange back then) a slight technical error and Frank Gari's Allegro, including a close! Moving forward, to January 16, 2001, the 23rd day of the Philippine president Joseph Estrada's impeachment trial. ABS-CBN's cable news channel, ANC, covers the proceedings:

    Big enough for three? Yes. Just get rid of WGNO.
