    They must be going back to the drawing board to rethink the show formats. Traditionally for them, the noon news was predominately a hard news show and when they expanded it to an hour, they had the lighter stuff towards the back end of the second half hour. When the 4PM launched, it was faster paced with the news and features were dispersed through out. The 5PM has always been longer form hard news. With Alicia possibly joining the noon (perhaps only for the 2nd half hour) maybe they want the noon show to become like (or replace) the 4PM and have the 4PM become a harder news show to compete with 10 at 4. As of right now, 10's the only station in that timeslot doing a full hard news hour. 3's doing a complete fluff show (hell they sit on damn couch) and 6 is trying to do both and perhaps they want to get away from that.

    KGUN STILL has the Journal graphics, and that sale closed years ago. They don't rush like some of the other companies.

    You've just rebranded your station. It's an expensive rebrand, too: new logo, new set, new anchors, new call letters. But your "Recorded Earlier" late news repeat open...hasn't changed in about two years. With that important comment, I present to you...KNSD in October 1988:

    For the first time ever we are able to screen one of the most scary documentary's ever...maybe even TOO SCARY for TVNT and it's younger visitors. It's the story of a TV logo that terrified at least 10 or more children and other assorted bedwetters in the golden days of television. https://horrorfreaknews.com/s-hell-bizarre-doc-explains-tv-logo-traumatized-generation It even scares me. Happy Halloween my little TVNT goblins.

    So if you haven't noticed, it's been 60 years since RTP's flagship newscast "Telejornal" and to honor it, they have a new intro and a modified theme song of their newscast as well.

    I Saw on FTVLive this morning FTVLive BNC that some dude named J.C. Watts Jr. & his business partner Bob Brillante are starting the "Black News Channel" to be targeted at young African Americans, and it is to launch this fall on Dish Network, Comcast & Charter. I wonder if this will get off the ground or not? something tells me this is going to fail, but then again if NewsNet can do it why can't these folks. They have been planning for this since May 2017. Their website say the headquarters & master control are going to be located in Tallahassee, FL, with bureaus in Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York City, L.A., Chicago & New Orleans. Any one else think this logo kind of looks like Master Card's logo? www.blacknewschannel.com

    This has some variations: WCSH/WLBZ went from "NewsCenter Mornings" to "wakeMEup". This pun both works and is cheezy as heck.

    Not sure if this deserves its own thread, but this graphics package has (for better or for worse) been immortalized on network TV thanks to NBC's Bluff City Law, which has so far used WMC's set, live van, mic flags, and, of course, graphics as part of the show. The only thing not included... actual station talent. To echo one of the tweets below, it's impressive how much effort was put in to make the scenes feel like they really came from WMC. Although I can't say I care at all for the show's use of Calibri over the supplied blank lower third. (Can't believe I'd ever think the Helvetica looks better!) I'm sure better screengrabs can be taken from the show if streamed live on nbc.com, I just haven't had the time to watch it. (Frankly, this interests me more than the show itself, haha) https://twitter.com/JaredJayBBoyd/status/1179027816043692033 https://twitter.com/kendall_downing/status/1178859750307565570 https://twitter.com/MemphoNewsLady/status/1184973449904754689

    Alicia was mentioned in the closing of the 5pm. If these are permanent pairings, it’s kind of sad to see Rick and Sarah broken up. Also, I feel like it’s a slap in the face to Sarah if she is not given the 4pm or 5pm as she well deserves it.

    Looks like WTVG 13ABC in Toledo also picked up the latest Gray Tv Graphics Package. Seems to be a more cobalt blue than other Former-Raycom stations are getting. Also the open is more like what WMC has than the others have been getting.

    That was covered earlier. The RSNs as a whole abandoned using a ticker. Don't know why but they did.

    Yes, that is correct. NBCSN is doing a good job with these new graphics. However, what's very bad is NBC Sports Philadelphia is completely bascura with their ticker.. SMH.

    The new ticker has shown up during NHL and NASCAR coverage. Its a variation of the new SNF ticker.

    I may be a little late with this but NBCSN updated some of their graphics for Premier League. Saw some updates this past weekend including the Sports ticker.

    I heard the open of the broadcasts, and it honestly sounds like a 21st century knockoff of 'Roundball Rock.' That doesn't mean I dislike it, but it's definitely got that vibe.

    If Chad were smart, he would make Michelle permanent weekday AMs - leave Shirleen at Noon. She should have had the position from the get-go, as there is real chemistry between Michelle and Ken, and the morning show numbers have been up since she went on leave. Shirleen is a great newsreader - but her interactions with others just seem forced.

    Altitude is pulling a page out of the Dodgers' playbook. Also, I see that the "genius" at Altitude, Matt Hutchings, was also in charge of the ill-fated CSN Houston earlier in the decade. Hutchings cannot get a carriage deal done if one bit him in the behind.

    More Jeff Zucker News: You can't have it your way slezzeball. There are multiple reports that Jeff Zucker was trying to wheel in Stephanie Ruhle out of MSNBC- Rock Center to Hudson Yards. Last checked: Stephanie is still with MSNBC and made the right choice to NOT head over to CNN. Source: FTV https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/10/18/jeff-zucker-tried-to-poach-msnbc-talent

    So there's a video of someone sharing their opinion of Jeff Zucker? Wow, what a bombshell. An employee has unfavorable interpretation of his boss' views. ::yawn::

    No. Because it's easier to base opinions on wild rumor and speculation than actually do research and think. How dare you! Why waste my time with anything congruous to forethought? /s

    Tough decision. I know many of their viewers want more punditry (pro-Trump that is) but that is loaded with risks.

    This logo is perfect... if NESN is an electric and energy consortion or animal preservation group or music company that shills re-recorded easy listening compilation albums. I'll wait until I see it motion, but for now this creation doesn't fit this network's brand of local sports one bit. (Golf, maybe, but not everything else).

    What is Mr.Kroenke's leverage in securing those streaming paths at a reasonable cost? Who's gonna cut him a break? Everybody wants a piece of his pie. Seems Hulu and Youtube have alliances already in place.

    That may be nice in theory but even if they did that, I'd bet the pressures of the spotlight of being on CNN would slowly change the show into what we have now on CNN. The format of New Day right now is quite different from how it debuted. CNN has an addiction to its talking heads format seen throughout most of their shows all day long (and they aren't the only ones). Morning Express being on HLN can kinda do its own thing, hidden away so to speak.

    Maybe HLN should just fire up the jukebox they used to recycle parts of Headline News back in the 90s and go back to that? When you have SEVERAL FREE streaming apps like PlutoTV, Filmrise, Stirr and the Roku Channel airing ENTIRE channels of Forensic Files....it's safe to say that HLN is past being toast. I'm sure the geniuses at AT&T have some good ideas up their sleeves to rescue this channel...

    Nexstar acquiring it won’t affect the cap at all. Not sure I agree with the independent assessment. At least MNTV provides two hours of programming every night.

    I think they're best bet at this point is turning into a CNN2 (whether in name or by action). That would mean supplementary and complementary shows to CNN. Maybe an extra hour of Anderson, replays of news shows, some CNN International simulcasts, new programs anchored by existing CNN names. ESPN does it with success. FBN is more or less FOX News 2 (they're very heavily politically focused). Either that or shut down the network because soft news didn't work, and Forensic Files isn't working that well either. That's my two cents

    That's the "sports" variant of the OTS template. It's existed forever. Someone sent me a copy of the style guide once so, just to prove it...
