    Just seems like you’re always hating on Norah and praising Jeff. Yes, CBS has been in last place for 35 years, but it’s not always the anchors fault. How do you feel she’s weak? Please elaborate. Who are the other qualified people at CBS that should have gotten the position? Keep in mind, star power is also important in addition to strong journalism skills.

    She's the least natural presenter of the 3 evening news anchors, her delivery always comes off a super try hard anchor woman even when she was on the morning show and her interviewing style is overly combative. I hardly find her reputable or personable. Scott Pelley, Anthony Mason, Margaret Brennan, John Dickerson, Don Dahler, possibly Major Garrett and Bob Schieffer. Doesn't CBS also have a deal with CNN, there are a number of talented CNN presenters that I would put ahead of Norah. Sorry to upset you or your opinion, I just think she was one of the weakest choices any of the networks have made in anchor in quite some time. Even Katie Couric made more sense. Norah's delivery is more suited for FTN than any other CBS broadcast. Her star power has done nothing to elevate the show and she was quite possibly the weakest of that CtM bunch after Gayle and Charlie. David Muir wasn't necessarily the most popular ABC News personality but he made sense and look where his broadcast is at, averaging almost 4-5x Norah's.

    Not sure how what the CW knew or didn’t know is relevant to this conversation at all. Pretty sure WGN decided to drop the CW, not the other way around.

    Never remember seeing a headline like that under Jeff Glor.

    I think the Christmas decorations are fine, as long as it doesn't distract from the newscast. I'd rather stations keep it to the poinsettias. They look much classier and mature.

    I believe these were all done by Collier Concepts. Their distinctive style even made it to Australia:

    From what I could tell on the West Mass News Open vs the WABC open, the color scheme looks very the same as WABC but obviously the way WABC did the open is totally different compared to what Western Mass News did. A good example of that would the way the animations of the graphics is done at WGGB vs the way WABC does theirs. My conclusion is that yes it's syndicated but because of the way the color scheme looks the boxes are used for one third of the screen in the beginning the news open, you could say it's a ripoff but I'd say its 50/50

    Primetime News has been in use with WOOD for 25 years... They use so many different cuts but each one sounds current and catchy.... It can be done with the right package...

    And that there is dysfunction from the top when the Creative Service department is powerless against news. Hate to think what Sales is doing to them as well. Believe me I've lived through the lack of a creative service department. It is HELL.

    Which makes one wonder if dropping the CW was a wise decision.

    That’s because Glor was a lower profile anchor. Give it a rest, he was not CBS’s saving grace either. His prime in popularity passed a while ago.

    Wouldn't they need a seperate set to make a South Bend-produced WXLV newscast work, especially if there are any WNWO newscasts live at the same time?

    I guess Sinclair figured it wasn't even worth producing a South Bend Special...

    Makes sense with the demise of WGN Sports, WGN could use much of its programming.

    The press release doesn't say which stations they'll sell/shut down in Syracuse and Yuma.

    And here's a German-language news open from Arte -- with some wonderfully contemporary graphics and music:

    From what I can tell the set looks great. Still miss the 2015 graphics, and I wish they'd bring that pkg back.

    I'm pretty sure that's the real deal. Looks way too good to be a knockoff.

    BIG issues tonight on WABC.. not sure when it happened exactly but at the top of the 5:00 hour it was commercials until about 5:10. Then Lee Goldberg broke in and gave an extended weather forecast before tossing it back to Bill and Sandra.. they got through about two stories and at the end of Toni Yates story the camera was stuck on her live shot.. they got back to the studio where the graphics from Toni story were still on screen.. they attempted to read the next story and Bill and Sandra quickly went back to commercial. 5:20 and it’s a replay of a newscast with Liz Cho ( I do not believe it’s today’s first at 4) it’s a complete mess lol definitely the computer going nuts 5:30 Lee is back on air and on Facebook live

    I would just run a double box and monitor the vote. We already know how the vote will go, and you can always take the chambers "full" if hilarity ensues.

    Love the use of purple on the L3s when mentioning LSU. Overture is still in use.

    New station. WTOC. Looks like they got the same package their sister station up the road got (WCSC).

    Aerial works great in a lot of markets. It would work fine in Memphis had WREG done it right (which they didn't) We'll never know what went on behind the scenes

    Many of Tegna's NBC affiliates have aired an overnight rerun of Nightly News since 2015. Variety has been on this since the practice started. Below is a link to article from November mentioning how the evening network newscasts are spreading to non-traditional timeslots in an attempt to squeeze out higher ratings. https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/evening-news-tv-ratings-david-muir-lester-holt-norah-odonnell-1203400113/

    Hosea Sanders is filling in at the desk at 4 today for the first time since the WCIU broadcast was canceled. I was beginning to think that they phased him out of anchoring for good, though this could be a last resort type thing, as holiday schedules get wacky. Either way, nice to see him back in the role, especially with Judy.

    https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/ingram-leads-big-upset-over-big-easy-powerhouse No specifics, but it mentions WVUE won all time periods in NOLA and WWL continues to fall (probably 3rd behind WDSU now in general, but that can't be confirmed). In 2018, WVUE outgrossed WWL in money too.

    Sorry if I bump a stagnant thread but.. As promised by Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley during the last earnings call, John Wall Street repoted on Friday that Sinclair is indeed going to increase it's stake in Stadium. Right now details at this point are limited as far as how much stake Sinclair will have in Stadium but this has to be a HUGE boost for not just Sinclair and Stadium itself but for the RSNs as well which makes sense given that Ripley has hinted about leveraging more Stadium content on the RSNs outside of the pre and post game shows. The announcement on those should come within the next week or so (possibly either the day after thanksgiving or next week) stay tuned.

    Some more avant-garde news graphics on display in this news promo from Arte, a binational channel based in France that produces its news (and other programming) in two versions, French and German. It's an "alternative," highbrow channel and its appearance reflects that orientation:

    A few weeks ago, KIII's (Corpus Christi) Chief Meteorologist, Bill Vessey, suffered a hemorrhagic stroke. An interview on last night's 10 PM news showed him up and about with the help of a walker. He seemed to be in good spirits, and his speech was clear. He continues to work on building the strength in his right arm and leg, but he was able to give the reporter a hearty handshake.
