    Everyone here is complaining about how awful this looks, but I bet if this had debuted in Europe it'd be hailed as revolutionary.

    I think my biggest problem with these graphics is that the lower thirds are using the old Facebook logo that was replaced months ago. Dear Scripps Graphics Hub: The Facebook app logo is now circular. Everyone wanted Scripps to get new graphics. Well, here you go. This is the style that's popular right now. I wouldn't expect many changes to these as it rolls out across the rest of their stations.

    A lot of that has elements some of these stations would have used individually without group graphics... like the station logo ghosted in the background on the full screen shots. These are a huge upgrade. I think some of you guys are having trouble with how simple they are but mobile app style graphics are where the world is headed... the old package had no individuality at all. Somebody at Scripps realized that it can’t be completely one blanket design with no individual elements.

    Those graphics were alright even though they were pretty much copying CNN's at the time; they were certainly an upgrade to the Hothaus design that McGraw-Hill stations had when they standardized, those were ugly.

    Looking at the package seen on WTXL that was to be expected for a market the size of Tallahassee. Hopefully, Scripps will take the package seen on WTXL and improve upon it from there

    KOLN/KGIN, who dominate Lincoln, would likely have something to say about that though.

    So who could WLNE become? The East Coast version of KELO? You may be right though on KLKN becoming the next KELO

    And maybe perhaps WLNE becomes the next KELO. It'd be interesting to see what Deb does with that and KLKN

    Word is they are launching tomorrow (Tues) on the first station. It is a very flat look with simple blue. It is VERY much like TEGNA. Words over a simple color or photo. They are even making the stations use an all-white version of their logo like TEGNA. Inside Scripps, they are calling it TEGNA lite. A few elements look nice but very limited and unprofessional as a whole package.

    NBR's fate was sealed when WPBT sold the show to serial fraudster Mykalai Kontilai. The show went into freefall after that.

    Animation and the like matter, but I don't hate that, in the least.

    And the earth-shattering major announcement is... Alan Sealls will be WPMI NBC 15's chief meteorologist starting in January. https://mynbc15.com/news/local/alan-sealls-the-gulf-coasts-chief-meteorologist-joins-nbc-15-as-chief-meteorologist Surprised his non-compete was only for six months after leaving WKRG.

    Watching WTXL a few things I notice: 1) The L3's animate slowly. Almost too slow. Maybe that's the point to draw your attention to it, but it takes its sweet time. 2) The music is incredibly chill and simple. Utilizes a lot of chimes and simple signatures. It's reminiscent of the Weather Channel. Certainly not music that would work well in fast-paced markets. 3) Weather graphics, I think, are an improvement. The problem is none of the icons animate. 4) Full screen slate is literally a slate. Zero movement. Upper banner too similarly matches the background, so it doesn't catch the eye. It should be white. 5) The biggest problem this package has is a lack of movement. Everything is very stagnant. Only the stingers and L3 seem to have some semblance of movement. I can't fathom Scripps spent months and months of designing stagnant slates.

    Too much blue I say, looks like if TEGNA and NBC O&O graphics screwed around and made a baby, this is what the baby would look like. A little bland and boring, but I guess this is what standardization looks like. Maybe the transitions, sound effects and music will make up for it....or maybe not.

    I'll take blue and flat any day. That is a fantastic package. Drop the text crawl-like thing over the L3s, and it's perfect. I don't care if it looks Tegna-like or whatever, I'm just happy the last package will finally bite the dust.

    I'll have to see these these in person when these debut on WEWS, but from what I can gather, it looks like a mock that I did, no more, no less.

    You can have 2D graphics, but these are too simplified. Nexstar is a good example of using a mixture of 2D and 3D and they make it work really well. Even Morris (especially WTVQ) does a good job with "flater" graphics but still include 3D elements. Hearst, arguably, does the finest job with its mixture of 2D and 3D. Using 2D graphics can be a slippery slope. It is either executed well or it looks awful. As I said before, these Scripps gfx look really tired. Just my opinion...

    If this is coming to WEWS, they're going to easily have THE WORST graphics package in Cleveland. This is just serviceable, at best. I mean the CNN ripoff package has aged horribly but DAMN!!!!!

    And the new music package. Sounds like they only used one cut for the whole show. It was pretty laid-back. But definitely had that Stephen Arnold sound. Almost weather channel esque.

    You’d think with all the money they probably saved by replacing regular studio cameras and robotics for PTZ cameras they could spring for another one for the weather center. Notice how the lens of this camera is peeking out from behind the prompter hood fabric: now I know these cars are good and all (we’ve had a debate already and there in wider use than we know) )but the at times tend to make scents look flat. I’m not sure when we look closely we would notice how things in the background blend in. This is a pet peeve of a a set designer (or two) I talked to. I imagine it has to do with the optics and the focal length of the sets.

    Time lapse video of the set's construction. I know @EastTennesseeWXGeek said they were making two giant rooms into one big set, but I didn't know their studio was THAT big.

    KELO has always dominated Sioux Falls and most of South Dakota.

    That's the theme called "Tuesday2". It was used on KGTV and WAVY. http://www.southernmedia-nmsa.com/#3,1,251

    Of course but before Deb took over KELO who dominated the Siouxland?

    This may or may not have any bearing, but KELO is such a success story, I tend to trust "Deb's" judgement on this.

    The rollout is such a mess with miscommunication. The person in charge is so desperate to have a station on before the end of the year that they had to scrap plans and launch first with Tallahassee because they use such a low number of graphics. This is so unlike the Scripps of just a couple years ago. Sad.
  33. 1 point
    Without question there's a lot of work that needs to be done at WLNE and quite frankly that might be what Deb is focusing on right now instead of going on a buying spree, by fixing the mess Citadel created at both KLKN and WLNE then maybe perhaps buy stations.
  34. 1 point
    You can have veteran talent, but if ratings and sales are poor then changes need to be made. I'm not sure what the replacement plans are, but I do know new ownership and the former ND didn't mesh well. I imagine there will be much more significant changes made at WLNE.

    So, give or take, mid-January at the earliest.

    That's not entirely true. I read recently that WLTX is making big gains and quickly eating away at WIS 10's dominance.

    I actually think KVVU's gfx still work nicely. But they need a new set--sooner rather than later.

    For the first time in nearly 30 years, 'America's Favorite Quiz Show' is headed for a primetime run this winter. Jeopardy! champions Jennings, Rutter, and Holzhauer will face off over 3 to 7 nights (6 to 14 standard games) from January 7-10 & 14-16 on ABC, all dependent on how long it takes for one of the champions to reach 3 match wins (1 night = 1 match). Therefore, the 4 latter shows may not be necessary, almost like a postseason series in some sports. https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/news-events/who-greatest-jeopardy-player-all-time

    The overall style is very similar to the well-known "Team to Watch" KNXT promos from a few years later. I wonder if they were produced by the same company that had switched clients in the meantime? (I remember reading that the KNXT promos were done by Collier Concepts.)

    And the theme during the mid-2000s was so good. The show was a part of my childhood, even though I haven't watched it in years. Sad to see it go, but it had a great run.

    The only thing I would have done is removed the slightly dated rotating animation on the left-hand side and expanded the L3s to fill that area. Otherwise, why fix what ain't broke?

    No it’s a modern interpretation on their legacy 2.

    I already love this way more than the 1990s Fox station logo they've been using.
