  1. I find it funny that somehow, KOAA and WLEX appear to be the only stations who have actually been able to push back against the new graphics and be successful, at least so far. They must know some secrets about someone high up in corporate

  2. News. Out. Of. The. Box. 15 minutes of show elements and highlights in glorious 60fps at master quality! This might be the vintage news video of the year, and it's only January 8. There's also some other material... and

  4. WGN America has hired longtime journalist Ashleigh Banfield for a new nightly show. The hour-long news and talk show, called Banfield, will air weeknights at 10 p.m. starting on March 1. The show will feature Banfield interviewing newsmakers, politicians and celebrities, and will also include in-depth coverage of the day’s top news stories. Banfield will replace the third hour of WGN America’s three-hour national newscast, News Nation, which premiered last September. “As WGN America begins expanding its programming and distribution in 2021, As

  5. I saw that with Wolf, but Wolf as well Leslie Stahl press Nancy on some tough questions. The people get upset, but isn't that the reporters job to be tough on politicians on both sides? Not to sound like an ageist but Wolf is 72 years of age. One has to wonder if Wolf plans to scale back on his work. Time can only tell.

  7. Here is some of his best work, IMO: billboards from his work on Jim Nantz's first job (The Prudential College Football Report); he also did it with Greg Gumbel's only season on that in 1989...

  8. Depends on the station. Many don't bother. Jeopardy! Weekend often airs at random times in the CT and MT markets that air the weekday run in daytime. Not many markets air Wheel Weekend outside of the same time slot it airs Mon-Fri. One of the few exceptions to this is KTUL in Tulsa, which airs Wheel Weekend Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM Central, instead of the typical Saturday at 6:30 PM. WCBD in Charleston, SC, being one of the few local stations that airs local newscasts on Saturday at 7:00 Eastern, airs Wheel Weekend Sunday nights/Monday mornings at midnight due to said newscasts.

  9. I was the one who uploaded it because I know this was of interest to those within this community especially those who hold some announcers to high regard, like Nantz. RIP Mr. Robertson + thank you for your presence.

  10. I'm sure this is just Wolf scaling back. I mean the man's been working 7 days a week for months. CNN has a great pool of reporters to step up to the roles.

  11. Found this on the FuzzyMemories channel. It's a 1973 CBS News special called "What's the Presidency All About?" (apparently a Saturday morning broadcast {having preempted Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids} and which the description describes as almost like an extended version of the long-running In the News segments) and was hosted by then-CBS Chief White House Correspondent Dan Rather

  19. The major problem though is that on-air, these have been atrocious to watch. Animations seldom work (delayed, glitchy, animations seem incomplete), the quad-sreen over Morken's shoulder has been blacked out during the newscast all week (the screens themselves are not new- part of the studio re-design in 2012-ish. Is it software related? pre-mature rollout?

  20. Slowly, but surely, the new graphics are creeping into the pre-Raycom outlets. Valley News Live (KVLY/KXJB) have the same graphic pack its sister station down I-29 have (KSFY/KDLT).

  21. I really like this. Looks like a great way to blend mostly flat design with some impressive detailed 3D flair. Just wish they'd throw the classic 5 in there somewhere.

  22. at the 5:52 mark - we get to hear the near-complete closing theme, which was part of the KIRO news theme package done locally by the Seattle Symphony. It was almost like listening to the theme from the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather; it had a thunderous, pounding orchestral sound. In My Opinion, News Outside the Box was the XFL of local newscast. I mean, it was a brilliant, totally badass idea, but unfortunately, it never caught on with the Seattle news audience.

  23. Without major changes to the status quo, I do not see Nexstar and Meredith doing a complete merger. Maybe piecemeal but not likely for the whole company.

  24. I think it's wishful thinking on Nexstar's part. If the company really wants an Atlanta news presence beyond a token capital bureau, then just do it. Commit the money and launch a newsroom dedicated to digital platforms. Hire a few people to chase news dayside and nightside. Shoot, edit, publish without regard to timeline, without worry about interrupting network programming or making slot at 5:02. Use the News Nation branding if you like. Hire some account executives to sell it. If sufficient following is achieved, maybe you can work up to a traditional newscast, maybe lease time on an existi

  25. Or Meredith goes piecemeal. Either of the 3 will be the only way how Nexstar gets Atlanta.

  26. It would be virtually impossible. The only way I can see Nexstar with WGCL is if an owner already in the market (i.e. Cox or Tegna) acquired Meredith. Unless they are looking at another station (i.e. the CBS-owned CW station)? Of the 12 markets that Meredith is in, Nexstar is in 9 of them. That's a deal that will NEVER work.

  27. KTTW TV’s previous owners are selling to a non profit organization. The Fox affiliate would have gone to KDLT TV or KELO TV. Either Nextstar or Gray TV would have been given the FOX affiliation.

  29. This is basically the M.O. for Sinclair/Gray/etc to skirt duopoly rules. Strip the intellectual property from one station, put it on a .2 on the senior partner and/or an LP, and now you have a duopoly without actually having a duopoly in the eyes of the FCC. It's bad news, because it's already happening with Big 3 stations with separate news departments (KTUU/KTVA). I do wonder if a Biden DOJ will figure out a way to crack down on the license kabuki, because it doesn't appear the FCC can.

  35. Jim Nantz announced several minutes ago during the Bears-Saints NFC wild card game that Don Robertson (legendary CBS Sports promo/billboard announcer, retired 1994) passed away. In addition to his duties for Sports, he also did the "This is CBS" IDs as well as occasional work for CBS News. Sending his family, friends and colleagues my love and condolences.
