  1. Great! I preferred the CTM eye opener as it was more of a current events summary, than a promo for upcoming stories in the 7:00 hour like CBS Morninngs' is.

  2. Starting this week, they’ve returned to the previous “CBS This Morning” theme for the 7am Eye Opener headlines segment.

  3. Watching now. The set is amazing, and light years ahead of anything else in that market, even WITN's ill-gotten attempt to move themselves to Greenville a few years back pales in comparison. Love the treatment on the logo. It works fantastically, and is almost an evolution of their late 90's variant when the "9" they have was introduced. Even ties in their old look with the slant to it (their WCPO-like logo)....see below. I'm not 100 percent on the use of purple (especially in the bug with the blue and gold supers), but it's a nice accent. Purple is a hard colo

  6. The old CTM Eye Opener theme played yesterday and today. Trust me... I have to watch the thing six times.

  7. EVERYTHING we've seen beyond this demo image says that WABC will only modify their logo (identical to the new WLS logo). And regarding your second point, yes, they coveted the channel 7's. There was a thought that channels 6 and under would eventually be scrubbed, so they pounced on what would've been the lowest/first dial position.

  8. The worst opening montage that KIMA/KEPR ever had...the first version of Action News. This is with the Battery music package that was used up until 2018 when Sinclair finally started transitioning them. The same montage had been used a year prior with a variant of the CBS Enforcer music package and a different announcer. It's not as choppy as I've seen in other videos, but the graphics scream "yuck"! Compared with KOMO and KATU at the same time, with the same owners, they treated these folks like the red-headed stepchild.

  9. For sure. I don't like WPRI either in addition to WJAR. One of my favorite personalities from Altoona PA is WLNE's new morning anchor (KC Kantz).

  10. It's still more of a promo for the 7:00 hour unfortunately.

  11. Love this. I miss stations doing these.

  12. The purple is likely a nod to ECU’s purple and gold colors. WNCT is the official station of the Pirates. That’s my assumption anyway.

  13. That was one hell of an introduction to a new set. Glad they brought the old anchor do to a nice piece on the station. Everything I like about the set ... EXCEPT ... what is up with the purple beside the CBS Logo? It does not match any of the Nexstar CBS gfx package. Other than that, well done. -- Matt

  14. WXTV's massive flat white box look is terrible compared to WNJU Telemundo 47's graphics. The graphics from WNBC are fine. The abrupt cold open with no announcer introduction is just too quick IMO, compared to their previous intros. Better than some other intros on this list but...NNN's truncated open compared to their previous grand animated intro, or the late Brokaw early Williams era open, sucks. FullSizeRender.mov

  15. I’ve always wondered about that as well as the other NBC 4’s, FOX 5 and CBS 2 affiliates.

  16. I would argue that the open might have been the best part of the newscast...

  17. Someone, for the love of all things holy, please call Gray and tell them to delete this package from their system… Literally this is all I see..

  18. WJZY will be moving up Young Sheldon and Big Bang Theory to 1 and 1:30 in TMZ Live’s spot. (Except reversing the two shows). In the past they have done the same thing with TMZ in place of YS at 2:30. (BBT at 2). Which actually sort of justifies the extra run of TMZ Live on WMYT at 3 (though WJZY could air it in late night). WJZY did air BBT at 1 despite the guide saying TMZ Live. I recorded to get YS. However instead of airing YS they joined TMZ Live in progress at 1:30! Oh and according to zap2it, because of TNF WJZY and WMYT both aired the same episode of TMZ a

  19. I think they both look nice, but I've decided that backgrounds that are just big skyline photos are boring. Putting a photo in a monitor does not take much effort. I prefer seeing some graphical design and physical set pieces.

  20. I find I can no longer watch them. It's the little comments and other stories pushing Sincrap's agenda. The mostly young untested talent. When I visit RI at least monthly, I have to watch another station for news or stream my local NBC flagship station. Too many watch WJAR out of habit, and its time they get a new habit.

  21. WTWC, WXLV, and KDNL deserves better station owners than that s**thole company they called Sinclair.

  22. We don't have a domestic news channel anymore. They are all talk radio and inside baseball. CNN is shameless in how much of a ratings grab it's become. It is sad because of how great CNN used to be. CNN International still has some bright spots coming from Atlanta and London, and they still have a pretty great stable of correspondents. But you'll almost never see any of that on the domestic channel. CNN was always the dream for me professionally. Not so much anymore.

  23. Last week I found myself watching CNN’s coverage of the Reagan assassination, the space shuttle Challenger disaster and Desert Storm coverage on YouTube. It was what real journalism was... and should be today. Just straight reporting. FOX, MSNBC and CNN today are not news operations anymore. They are opinion channels. It’s a shame. Good reporting about world events is much more riveting to watch than a Brady Bunch split screen with six talking heads blabbering on and on about what the weird haired man posted on twitter today. Hopefully these “news” nets find their way back to reporting
