  1. It’s 11:00! Al Schottlekotte News time!

  2. Looks like NECN got new graphics... the name straps look like the old msnbc graphics. Like to see if this is the next look as NBC Arthouse launches every Summer Olympics. The look appears to be a flat evolution of Look N.

  4. Tell it to "KYC management and Tegna, they're screwing everything up. They need to listen to the people. They want traditional newscast back.

  5. I seen that video. It was so cringy. They need to go back to Channel 3 News. Immediately because this is getting ridiculous.

  6. If you can bear 3+ minutes of Mike Polk trying to get children to understand the 'new' WKYC programming schedule... https://youtu.be/_yv753eDTZc My guess...if he went to a Giant Eagle parking lot and asked adults the same questions, nobody would know what he's talking about. How much longer until we can be done with this and just call it "Channel 3 News" again?

  7. This article on the announcement of What's New actually touches on Lunch Break's cancellation, only briefly, but doesn't mention why. https://www.cleveland.com/arts/2019/12/wkyc-studios-will-offer-more-talk-with-whats-new-hosted-by-betsy-king-and-jay-crawford.html It seemed that Lunch Break was supposed to also have guest co-hosts in addition to WKYC stars. The only one I remember who took part was Geraldo Rivera's wife. Now as of today, the morning "news" now starts at 4:30am instead of 4am, and Live on Lakeside has changed its name to It's About You.

  8. 20th Century Fox is one of the most iconic brands in the history of cinema, whereas Touchstone is basically a shorthand for mediocrity. I can’t imagine why Disney would want to bring it back in any capacity, other than to keep the trademarks active.

  9. I am totally cool with the 20th Century Studios name. Yet, I wish Disney would have either merge 20th and the currently-inactive Touchstone Pictures into the new 20th Century Touchstone label or just fold Touchstone into 20th by integrating Touchstone's library into 20th's.

  10. What’s the point of having standardized graphics if you’re not going to require each and every station to use them? Scripps is a complete dumpster fire.

  12. I streamed a little bit of What's New and (at least the part I saw) is pretty much Lunch Break...just at 5pm. The show itself isn't bad, it's just not what people want to watch.

  14. I honestly don't even know if there are any complaints in Cleveland about this, but I wouldn't be completely shocked if there are. They do need to listen to the people, but they won't. And while TEGNA has screwed with most of their stations, WKYC got screwed up with the most. And that needs to change.

  15. I think I’ll stick with what we have... however I like the music on the French one... I can’t stand all the junk floating above the lower thirds as an intro with the bubbles and arrows.... it’s much more cluttered than anything you get here... American consumers would find this... boring... they aren’t really interested in straight news as much as confrontation and excitement... that’s the part that really needs changing before we talk graphics... I actually ended up not going into the business because I got to see the sausage being embellished to dress up a story and it didn’t fee

  17. Earlier today, Newshub (Three's news service) premiered its new graphics and theme music. Excerpts of Jornal da Band from February 2008. High-definition telecasts began 2 months before, in December 2007, with Band being the first in Brazil to adopt the new technology for news programs. The newsroom looks great, but not the anchordesk. A full edition of the Australian Today show in August 2003. Before watching this video, I'd never imagine that they still used the late 1990s theme for the intro. A time later, they replaced it with commercial songs, such as U2

  18. So Standard General as part of their response to Tegna that I shared Yesterday this one here expands on what was originally reported that @tyrannical bastard shared last week. They have filed with the SEC a Schedule 14A, as recently as Thursday and according to that report it mentions names like Stephen Usher, David Glazek, and Michael Perrone as names of those that are part of the proxy fight to take over Tegna I think Soo brought more than just a crew he brought an ARMY of those that are willing to join Kim in the fight to takeover Tegna, this is getting more and more

  19. Generally, the way most modern hubs work is having the equipment racked at the local station (servers, sat receivers, etc), and those are remotely controlled over IP. Sending the local newscasts to-and-from a hub creates unnecessary bandwidth and latency. Internet connections are at a point where remote computer connections and an IP stream of the station’s output (sent back to the hub) are all that are necessary.

  21. You're right - it's a better logo in regards to its concept and evolution. Don't know what's up with the irregular overlapping of the call letters, though. What's the deal with the over-under-over-under-under?

  22. I'd say both parties involved in this are being bullies (Tegna for essentially giving the finger to Kim just because of the fact they're afraid that Kim would come into the company and destroy everything Tegna has been doing to their stations in the last few years) You could say Kim was being a bully in his response but Tegna started it here, not Soo Kim.

  23. A follow-up on this: Soo Kim has responded back to Tegna's baseless claims and I'll just let the quote's from Mr. Kim speak for itself on this one: All I'm gonna say is you might need 2 or 3 boxes of popcorn for this one.

  24. I can only imagine if Gannett remained the same company as it was before the split.... The current "Gannett" is like the rebirth of AT&T, after SBC renamed themselves when the old AT&T was sold off piece by piece. It's technically GateHouse, but under the Gannett branding. Same as Tegna being the old Gannett company and the split company keeping the Gannett name. Usually, the print side is the one to go batty. Gannett is the behemoth in this case and Tegna is treated like an upstart company. One that has trashed many of their stations and the investors are f

  25. I think Tegna's board might have to think twice about this one because if they think that by telling Kim no will push him away, they are sorely mistaken. The fact that Kim is responding back by bringing some of his people (all of which had YEARS of experience of being in the business) tells me that Soo Kim really wants Tegna and wants Tegna bad. I'm starting to wonder if it was coincidental that Tegna bought stations like WTHR/WBNS, WNEP, WPMT and WOI/KCWI (all of which are in markets that both Kim and McDermott either tried to buy in 2018 or were in those markets when

  26. A new logo is indeed expected to launch with the new set. However, it does not appear they will be using Channel 36 in their brand. The new identity is a refreshed look of their current mark which emphasizes their call letters. The new version has the peacock moved to the front and letters are stacked on top of each other. I've seen two uses of this new logo and both were executed in a flat one-color manner.

  27. I probably would've turned off WKYC from all of my news viewing ever since the "3" era started. I would've been fine watching WEWS or WOIO/WUAB over WKYC's garbage. But my heart would be on WJW, 100% of the time. And considering that WJW is on at the same times as WKYC, except 11PM and some weekend hours, I wouldn't miss it too much at all.

  28. Bumped this up to share that “3News” is using animated versions of their anchors to promote their new 5pm “newscast.” The madness continues.

  30. Not gonna lie, but I kind of like this logo.... ...If we took WKYC's disaster of a logo out of the picture, that is.... They've ruined that idea. I've never been a fan of WCNC's logos going back to when they brought back "36". They've just look boorish and dated, especially with the fonts they used. I liked the "NBC 6" logo and the one that just had WCNC and the peacock (in the Carolina's News Connection days)

  33. Using headphones, Listen closely at the :17 mark... you hear the squeak that News Music Now puts in their tracks.... Listening to the headline theme on NMN, you hear the squeak at the :17 mark. http://www.newsmusicnow.com/player.php?id=2085 Either Fox got short on time and was desperate to use that track so they pulled it off of NMN or this is some kind of resync.

  36. 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:

  37. Its really more of one of those peculiarities of French television. For the longest time, they’ve put the mics in the desk on news programs instead of using lav mics. I assume that’s partly because, up until very recently, French news was very formal with the anchor almost never leaving the desk. Now, especially on the France televisions properties, they’re trying to have anchors more engaged and standing up, so they of course now need to have lav mics. But you’ll still see the mics in the desk for other reporters and guests. I suppose it might help with cost too, and honestly I think it’s pro

  39. It'll be interested to see whether the new WCNC set will be Joe Lamberta design with Innovative Environments fabrications, similar to what KHOU and KTHV got in 2019... Assuming they don't go with Jack Morton PDG design (seen on KING, KUSA, WUSA, WHAS, etc.). If WCNC is exploring adopting a new on-air name, I could easily see "NBC 36 News" or "WCNC 36 News" name replacing "NBC Charlotte", assuming TEGNA doesn't damage them like it did WKYC, WXIA, and other stations. It'd also be interesting to see if TEGNA plans to invest in a new set for WKYC, and any other stations that have date
