  1. I agree. For CBS News, I think this is an upgrade for their on-air look and feel. In my opinion, NBC News normally has an edge in graphics presentation. Their look tends to be more cohesive and refined than the others. However, I think that this CBS open has better production values than the odd piece-by-piece overhaul of NBC Nightly News.

  2. KPTV has switched to the graphics: Interestingly, I noticed the WSMV/Meredith package looks basically like a derivative of the previous KPTV/WHNS/WGCL package that Hothaus also developed... to the point where it's a bit hard but also sort of easy at the same time to tell the difference.

  3. Regarding KCTV 5, I think this new package is a very big improvement for them. I wish they kept the old logo though. I was never much of a fan of KCTV's implementation of the WFTV package (even though I like WFTV's package). KCTV's 2015 gfx pkg was superb; I was disappointed at the time when they decided to switch to WFTV's package. I must give Meredith credit for commissioning a package that is energetic, current, and bold (in a good way) -- instead of something anemic and lacking. Kudos to them for that. Overall, this Meredith package is a nice improvement across the stations so far.

  4. Its a beautiful package the only thing most stations used the red and blue. Like that's not WFSB's color scheme it always been blue. But did take advantage and customized it was FOX 5 Las Vegas KVVU which customized for it red themed style like the old Graphics package.. And they used Live as a beginning stinger. Same thing with WNEW in Saginaw, They did the syndicated look but you can see they opted to customize the color scheme with the Blue & Yellow they had the prior package, WGCL Atlanta could've gone that route!!! And also added the own beginning stinger "Coverage You Can Count On". But Overall its a hit package, I just don't like how some station ART Departments didn't interpreted it for there local needs.

  5. It isn't necessarily of "national significance", but it is a story that directly targets the emotional appeal of what you'll typically see in local news... now in a national package like NewsNation. Remember, Nexstar's NewsNation is developed to be a national newscast with local interests and these local stories directly play into that idea given the context and the audience of the program. NewsNation isn't going to be the place to find hard news and analysis about America's debt for 3 hours straight, but you will see softer stories that highlight the unique regional fabric of the United States without the whole "doom & gloom" fare and could be of interest to a national audience, despite not being immediately relevant to your area. Let me copy-paste my post from the Discord server that explained my point that, besides journalistic directions, NewsNation shouldn't be compared 1-to-1 to Smith's program, which focuses on general national subjects like politics and the economy. I also delved into "day one" reactions from some members as well:

  6. Also, the KCTV logo is bad. I wasn't really a fan of the logo they've used the last 20 years or so, but in making something new, they had the opportunity to try for something unique or interesting, but instead did...that. Really unfortunate. It's pretty much along the lines of what Gray and Nexstar do when they change a station's logo. I'll give a group like Morgan Murphy credit on their redesigns. Some of the logos (WISC) were a miss, others were pretty good (KXLY)...but at least they tried something original. Not just slapping the network logo next to a generic sans-serif channel number. Same for Tegna really. Not everyone is a fan of what they've done with the WXIA and WTSP logos, for instance, but it sure beats going this route. (For the record I actually like the new WTSP 10 logo)

  7. The Tegna package is fine. This package is decent. How about that?

  8. The Meredith graphics looks beautiful. It's got that WOIO (Cleveland) vibe in it. Tegna, are you listening?!

  9. What's interesting to me is KCTV will have had 3 different looks in the last 4 years. Quite a lot of change considering how long looks are kept nowadays.

  13. That looks alright. Probably the most “modern” CBS News has looked in a very, very long time.

  14. WGNO was coming in tonight....so i'm giving it a watch and seeing how it compares with WKRN's version of the KOIN package. Overall, I like the WKRN implementation more. The only thing I would say is to use the coloring that WGNO uses on their main supers for WKRN. The purple(ish) ticker on WGNO DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. Either do the whole package in Mardi gras colors or don't do it at all. It looks like a sore thumb when combined with the graphics in the primary colors. Reading back through this thread, the original KOIN version has that turquoise-ish shade of blue, and subsequent launches have opted for either a navy or lighter shade of blue. I don't know if there's a "safety tab" on these graphics, it looks like there is dead space to the right of the words, maybe it's a trigger if more characters are needed, and if the max is reached, the "auto-stretch" kicks in? But that's a producer thing, so their supers aren't too long. It's like the newspaper headline of this century. Short and effective supers. And since the package sort of has the Tegna-vibe to it, is this the way that WGNO is trying to out-WWL....WWL? At least this comparision can't be made in Nashville since they don't have a Tegna station.

  15. I like those new graphics from what I've seen so far at wkrn.

  16. Yeah, it’s fun to speculate about such things. But Norah is not going anywhere. I haven’t watched the CBS Evening News with any regularity since Bob Schieffer retired.

  17. No. You can still be creative while expressing today's design languages. Having 3D elements doesn't make it a guarantee that it'll be "creative" if one doesn't understand how its supposed to work with the design.

  18. TEGNA, after deploying two successful design languages that TVNT still rags about: The fact that after 8 years, some of you seemingly can't let go of TEGNA using a lick of today's design language in favour of yet Another Generic Graphics Package™ in the era of the smartphone is quite laughable. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad package, especially compared to some on the market. But as we all saw, it's woefully incomplete, stylistically out-of-date, hilariously out-of-touch, and adds nothing substantive to the previous packages some of the stations already had.

  19. WNEM looks to have the new graphics too (probably this evening), but at least they appear to be keeping their logo. And here's KCTV's logo from their website
