  2. not sure if i'm in the right general for this one but i didn't feel like this warranted its own thread and i'm pretty sure the graphics subforum is only for new stuff, but. i was lookin on bill ratner's website after hearin his voice on some downstate public access show (thanks @22MinWorld for showin me *that* gem), i wanted to see if he ever acknowledged it. ended up finding this WLS open with the newer stimulus package that i've never seen before on air. not sure if this was used on a special occasion, it was very early in the package's history, or what. those glass panel things seem mo

  3. Programming legally has to be "controlled" by the licensee. The only exception are in house programs like newscasts (or others run by the SSA partner), and such programming cannot exceed 15 percent of the weekly schedule of a station that is being managed while under common ownership of other owned stations in the market. WPMI (and likely others) had to dump newscasts as a result of it, so they canned their 4:30 am show. These Deerfield arrangements (especially WPMI and WJTC) got in at a time when they were not under scrutiny, and it was under the same divestiture that saw their

  4. And here I thought they had the newsroom set since...what, the 80s?--and they just put a monitor wall in front of it recently. This looks like it'll be a proper set--again, a shame that newsroom sets are going by the wayside. But also seems like a decent excuse for another In-Sink update.

  5. Holy moley, what a find. They are not original to the 2013 package, but a slate of opens that never made it to air. Recorded in February 2017 at Chicago's Museum of Broadcast communications, many talent shots were quickly obselete after a slate of retirements, hires and reassignments. Some of them made it into promos for weather, but these updated opens were never used on-air. The station has been hinting at new graphics for more than a year, but they stray from this look.

  11. Well with Jeff they have a full summers worth on Big Brother. IIRC he didn’t do or say anything too outrageous a lot of his time was taken with his showmance Jordan who he married. However I don’t think he rocked the boat as he was voted “America’s Favorite” fan boat. I’m sure if someone went to JokersUpdates they could find something innocuous and make it something.

  13. Here's the intro of the "Main News" from the "Hong Kong International Business Channel"... I'm not so sure if the theme used is from News Series 2000 Plus, but I'm very certain that the end tag of the theme sounds very similar to the "logo" of the News Series 2000 Plus...
