    Yeah, this is killing me. Kaity Tong and Howard Thompson are the 2 at WPIX I respect the most. Who is going to be the hard worker for New Yorkers not named Arnold Diaz?

    iHeartMedia has unequivocally opposed further dereg on the radio front... on the grounds it would allow other groups like Entercom or Cumulus to come in and erode their ratings/revenue positions in the largest markets. It got to the point that CEO Bob Pittman threatened that iHeart would go on an M&A spree of their own to keep up (and after they emerge from chapter 11 in a few weeks, it’s not that empty a threat). Sinclair’s bad behavior and shady business practices with Tribune undoubtedly has totally sucked all the energy out of further dereg in terrestrial television. And don’t forget that, even with GOP majorities in both chambers of the legislative branch that would otherwise be very conducive to dereg, they have a hard time coming to agree on anything. They couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act and almost fumbled a SCOTUS nomination that was nearbly unfumbleable, you think this bunch will be able to raise any ownership caps?

    I like this. Digging how the K and Y flow from/into the O. But what do I know about design, haha. I’ll just wait until Brand New posts a blog about it and its readers tear it apart.

    King WSB, a few weeks before Y2K.

    Up next... Connecticut! WFSB’s always had some great station imaging over the years IMO.

    They'll never admit it, but I can't imagine that it wasn't a factor.

    Unless he's talking about "PBS NewsHour Weekend" which is a half hour.

    Cutting-edge stuff for ‘88. Definitely set the tone for the early-mid 1990s.

    The 10PM Report from WCCO News for June 8, 1988. This would have been a brand new look, too: And a KCCI noon show from 1996:

    Beyond the music, let's talk about the poor production quality of the newscasts featured in the above clips. The clueless 9 am open. The 6 pm open where the wrong story was featured on the video wall. Ouch. And they're number one?!?

    I don't hate Tamsen like everyone else seems to, but...(rhetorically speaking...) why would they keep her over any of her co-anchors?

    Confirmed: All stations in Panama City - radio and TV - are off the air. It gets worse: the iHeart cluster is not only off the air, their staff is trapped and unable to escape due to flooding. This is their chief engineer’s Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10212767408247109

    Wait. I love the new one. This is definitely better than previous ones. Excluding the London olympics logo, that one was awesome!

    So I’ve been told by reputable source that the targeted move in date was October 1 and now it’s been moved to mid October to the end of the month. Apparently the cameras and video walls are giving them issues.

    Gotta say, it looks pretty clean.

    Brand New is full of ink-stained curmudgeons, many of whom don't get motion or broadcast design.

    That's a name I haven't heard in years, I hadn't heard anything about him since his second go-around at WCCB.

    You think it's that bad? It's clever if anything. The typeface is symbolic of Japanese script and their architecture. Though I admit, I wish they'd bring back the shield aspect.

    I guess the cancellation of the Sinclair sale was a factor?

    Ah yes, the old light patch bay. However, I have seen a lot of smaller-market stations that did their old setup on the cheap and simply used a breaker box to turn on the circuits.
