    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.

    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

    There's some weirdness with the graphics. It's nice but there's a few little odds and ends that, if they cleaned them up, would make the package great. The combination of set and graphics is probably their best cohesive look since the 1998 graphics and set debut.

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

    Oh, dear. I'm not on the thread I thought I was. Sorry.

    I wonder why they had a special open for the rebroadcast, rather than just slapping a "Recorded Earlier" tag on the screen like most other stations.

    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.

    Seems like something’s definitely up. Jeanette Reyes co-anchored at 4pm with Brian, and Sarah filled in for Alicia doing the features. The 4:30pm rejoin mentioned Sharrie in it, but she was not included in the close. But she gave the 5pm preview, and is now anchoring the 5pm with Rick. And Alicia was in studio at 5pm doing a story!!!

    WTVG has had those graphcs since the summer, at the very least. Vid courtesy of Daniel Garcia Media from YT.

    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.

    No more musical performances during the Genesis Halftime Show.

    Question is for how long. I'm sure that if Gray wanted to extort Nexstar/WFFF for the affiliation they could.

    You're going to be waiting for a good minute. For one thing, I would wait until the Nexstar option lapse. And no telling when a "possible" new graphics debut on the other stations.

    That was covered earlier. The RSNs as a whole abandoned using a ticker. Don't know why but they did.
  21. 1 point
    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.
  22. 1 point
    Yeah, It's the NBC Sports ticker. They adapt it to focus on whatever sport is being presented live, but then during regular studio shows, it runs through all sports.
  23. 1 point
    The new ticker has shown up during NHL and NASCAR coverage. Its a variation of the new SNF 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.

    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::

    — James O'Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) October 14, 2019 Ahhh... Project Veritas... they of editing videos together out of context and calling it legitimate journalism? James O'Keefe is a con artist political activist with an axe to grind... If you are gonna quote things... use some actual sources and not some guy with a website and a desire to see an agenda fulfilled... thanks.

    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

    Uh, yeah. Shep is gay, so... Plus, that he was escorted out was debunked.

    ...Because we all know (us deep insiders) that Fox has been considering shutting down it's news division because of public outrage and declining profits... Get Real

    I can't see him downgrading to that level. I see CNN or CBS News in his future. I'm guessing Fox keeps that hour for news and extends Daily Briefing with Dana Perino to two hours.

    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).

    I wonder, if anyone, will cave first as Comcast & DISH have business interest in Metro Denver while AT&T owns Altitude's competitor, AT&T SportsNet Rocky Mountain. Let's see what happens when games begin in October.

    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.
  40. 1 point
    When are some of these companies that are resistant to change going to wake up and realize that streamming is the future? Clearly Stan Kroenke hates streamming and yet he's building a futuristic-type NFL stadium for the Rams and Chargers in the Los Angeles area (Inglewood to be more specific). Hypocracy much?

    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.

    Just like their b r i l l i a n tbranding of their LTE network as "5G E"...(I'm not going to hold my breath, lest it be a full time Adult Swim channel...but I digress.)

    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.

    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...

    If Fox is willing to compete with the Big Three they need to be different than the big three, what I mean by that I mean give the affiliates an option to air it at 7:30e/6:30c instead of 6:30e/5:30c this way if the affiliates want to continue doing the 5:30c/6:30e local newscast they can have the option to do it. This way the network is happy and the affiliates/O&Os are happy as well

    TV3 New Zealand is in serious trouble. Its parent, MediaWorks, is selling its TV business, but there's a big possibility that it will not find a buyer, possibly causing TV3 to shut down. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/240199/tv-business-struggling-in-new-zealand/

    Did Shepard Smith did some shit we don't know about? Like sexually harassing and abusing women, like Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly did? That could explain why Smith was escorted out of the building after he ended his show. He left FOX News pretty abruptly.
