    WBTV implemented the new Gray graphics last night.

    And since design trends are cyclical, I imagine we will soon start to see things like [ FIRST IN HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE ] [ PRESENTED IN UP-CONVERTED DIGITAL 4K ]

    There is a special "Celebrating Diana" at 5 pm on Thursday (9/12), the last of her time. They also posted her first report on Twitter, back when she was reporting and anchoring weekends. https://abc7ny.com/society/diana-williams-first-wabc-report-on-1991-at-t-phone-fiasco/5525995/

    I propose using a version played on the Theremin. That'll wake you up.

    Wow. Their implementation is actually very good. Maybe it’s the gradients, but these look a lot slicker than the other Gray graphics.

    National anthem begins at the 55-second Mark. Worth your click Because this is how it should be done. Not some cheesy Nashville Act.

    That would be your station's friendly neighborhood program director -- although many of the calls on whether or not to pick up shows is predominately made on the corporate level any more. Decades ago, the trade magazines would list stations that had picked up the shows, and it eventually became the broadcast groups.

    I concur with Dirty Harry. I watched those Nexstar videos with Nashville acts, and I've got to say, it doesn't have as much strength and gravitas as other renditions in the past I remember THIS rendition from Sandi Patty, and this was used when KRDO ABC13 in Colorado Springs/Pueblo ended and began their broadcast day with this rendition. It showed beauty shots of Colorado Springs and our military, while this song played in the background

    The Columbus Symphony Orchestra, coupled with shots of Central Ohio landmarks — what a signoff. Also love the use of the “Spirit of Ohio” theme. Nexstar’s canned anthem has nothing on this — since they’re all about “local,” shouldn’t they use locally produced videos? I reckon WCMH has a vast video archive... hell they could have used the Waverly High School kids from Pike County who performed at this year’s Red, White & Boom.

    At least this is the first useful post from you that I've seen, unlike your others which contain suspiciously fake information.

    What does this have to do with anything??

    The bug resembles the old Raycom bug, which helps too.

    I find it strange that Sinclair didn't get Tamron for its second flagship WJLA. It's going to air on WTTG Fox 5.

    Forget sets, graphics, or even the play on the field. The only big thing that really matters. All is right with the world.

    I'd be surprised if the CBSN look rolled out to the OTA newscasts with no modifcations or differences. Whether it's more thorough opens, a different bug with the station logo, or different lower thirds, what's used for the cable-like CBSN might not work as well for the traditional local format. The best comparison I can think of is how WGN and CLTV have differentiated their looks over the last decade, while sharing fonts, color schemes, and basic design elements.

    No, Besides, a smart operator would see it as perfect sponsorship opportunity... Let freedom ring, all the way to the bank.

    No, they need to use this music instead: "Ladies and gentlemen, the name of the newscast is Go!"

    I got some names: 5pm: "Watch Us After Ellen" 7pm: "At Least It's Leas Boring than Wheel of Fortune" 11pm: "At Least Fox 8 Isn't Here...Yet" Weekend Mornings: "Go...Back to Sleep!"

    This Mike Davis saga will have a more lasting effect than such past indiscretions as Jym Ganahl's addiction to painkillers and the Angela Pace incident when she flipped the bird between topical tapings and a still made the air during programming. There's no chance of him working again in TV, especially if he's convicted and sent to prison.

    Nexstar needs THIS for its stations!

    I want to like this - as it is definitely “on trend” in terms of a flat design. But - the open is sloppy and clearly inspired by TEGNA. (Diagonal stripe pattern is an obvious similarity.). I do like the transitions and wipe/masking effects. The set is a nice variation of what we’ve seen in recent Nexstar sets - similar to WISH but with an overall “darker” palette and varying textures. Plus, unique features like the bridge cables and street patterns really bring a “local” flavor. In this age of consolidation, I appreciate Nexstar’s approach to individual station branding and identity. (Which is obviously a remnant from Media General and Lin.) I wish TEGNA, Scripps and Sinclair would take a similar approach, It’s standardization without being too cookie cutter - offering options for individuality amid a slate of consistent design elements.

    Maybe perhaps I should be the one making the call in the future because clearly I would've not allowed for example WSB or any other Cox-owned station to bury Kelly Clarkson to an overnight slot. In my opinion, that's unacceptable.

    The great thing about our country is that nobody is dictating that stations must run the anthem. Stations that don't run the anthem do so by choice. All that say's to me is they have decided not to run it. It doesn't make them any less of an American unless they denounce the country. In North Korea, the poor guy in master control better hit that "vtr playback" on time... Or he, (and 3 generations of family) can end up in a state run concentration camp. Thank God we have a choice. And the parody version...

    I think it's pretty unnecessary (and at least for me, deeply unsettling) in an age when stations do not sign off. If it was a minimal shot of the flag waving I would be more sympathetic, but the visuals are truly over the top.

    Wendy got her start in Columbus on WWHO — so it’s like going home. I’m surprised they haven’t let go of The People’s Court or Divorce Court yet. I’m shocked 4 didn’t get Kelly Clarkson, seeing as it was Steve’s direct replacement. However, Media General began to move away from NBCUniversal Television Distribution as the station’s main syndication provider... looks as if Nexstar is continuing that. Sinclair must have been willing to pay more than Nexstar for it.
