    First proper broadcast of the PBA on Fox/FS1 and they're doing a great job so far. Case in point: they got Nelson Burton, Jr. to commentate for a bit! Burton was one half of the legendary team that did PBA coverage on ABC (the other half being the late, great Chris Schenkel). He still sounds great!

    Now, for the first time in 2.5 decades (it's been that long since I saw it way back when in 1993), the opening of a syndie movie package called Columbia Night at the Movies (being as I hadn't seen it since I was 12 [that's when I saw it for the first time], my illusions about its nature were shattered, and remarkably so):

    Exactly. Sinclair followed the law to the T but not the spirit of the law if that makes sense. Then when Sinclair didn’t follow the requests from the DOJ and FCC on what to divest it gave them leverage to deny.

    If it's true, then that means that NBC will finally be the last morning show to go 16:9 on the L3s.

    There is precedent for this, as they refreshed the 2009 graphics after the 2012 Golden Globes.

    Yup they got a new ticker. Fills about the entire width of the screen. Older graphics on Sunday Today.

    But do you guys seriously think the FCC doesn't know what's going on? Of course they did! Maybe the first time Sinclair did this (actually, Outlet claimed to be the first) it was novel, but that was almost 20 years ago! WGN, WPIX or whoever were going to Cunningham or one of those companies, weren't they? Like the FCC doesn't know about Cunningham? I think what happened was that the FCC decided (arbitrarily) that Sinclair was big enough.

    Nothing will ever beat what Gray did in Laredo, where they bought an LPTV, moved it to the same channel as full-power station KVTV operating with the same facility, then had KVTV's license surrendered.

    I actually might... I’m targeting Atlanta as well... Jacky has been updating the ID montages from Shreveport, too.

    Really now? I'm obviously not from Cali, so this would factor to my opinion, but even if I was, I would find car chase coverage dumb, boring, pointless and a waste of the actual important news stories in the area to show -- and the hard work by reporters by extention (except for KTLA which has half a day to do them both). The fact that SN1-SoCal wouldn't cover them alone would give me enough reason to watch that instead, no matter how "out of touch" they are.

    @susquvalleywgal This looks like it's probably the new news logo for WHTM.

    Yep, you read that right. I'm presenting you some "News 2000" by Music Partners, which is most notably used by Atlanta's ABC affiliate, WSB-TV; the station's newscasts (titled "Channel 2 Action News") used News 2000 from 1998 until 2009, when they decided to go with "Coverage" by 615 Music. Now I'm pretty sure there are other cuts of News 2000, but these two cuts are the ones that I'm familiar with the most: Primary Theme Closing

    WSB should’ve kept this theme longer.. it’s the signature theme for the station. In the same vain as: KABC, KTRK, WABC - eyewitness news WPVI- MCTYW

    The closing theme at the beginning of the video sounds weirdly similar to the theme All My Children was using during that same timeframe.
