  1. Wow, surprised to see this considering the design that just rolled out on the Bally networks. I guess they're trying to keep the two looks as separate as possible. I like the simplicity and clearness of this score bug.
  2. Yes, thank you to both! The Fox 2008 look was the main thing that was on the tip of my mind, that I couldn't think of. The 2016 TBS look kinda gives that vibe too. I think it was mainly the color scheme that was making me think of the Turner Sports look from 2007-2010. I also wonder if the new bosses will make all of their booth talent wear full suits for every game like what Marquee is mandating. It looks so odd to see that on a local telecast; although I think some Fox RSNs may have already been wearing suits on a daily basis anyway.
  3. That score bug reminds me of something I've seen before, but I can't place my finger on it. It gives me Turner Sports vibes circa 2007-2010
  4. The fact that the game clock and shot clock are not horizontally aligned kinda makes it look odd, but that might be a stylistic choice to help the viewer differentiate between the two?
  5. Oh absolutely. The biggest question will be what the new score graphic will be like. I know all newer score graphics tend to be larger to make them mobile-friendly, but hopefully they do it elegantly.
  6. Oh my goodness. I had no idea that Mike Hamernik was unwell. Total shock to me. My condolences to his loved ones.
  7. And now the managing editor of NewsNation has resigned... https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/03/04/robservations-chicago-star-debuts-uplifting-monthly-newspaper/#more-28903
  8. https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/03/03/will-mark-giangreco-ever-return-abc-7/ Feder seems to be suggesting that Giangreco will not be returning. If that's the case, what a way for a career to end without a proper goodbye.
  9. The end of the show was really awkward. They were doing that thing where they're showing viewers' (positive of course) thoughts on social media about the show, and suddenly Joe got rushed off the air so that they could start NewsNation Prime at :58 past the hour. The handoff was extremely awkward to where Joe finished his toss while viewer comments were still on the screen, but instead of the program switching to Prime, Joe's single cam got put on the air unexpectedly. Joe was seen looking off to the side of the studio with a frustrated "WTF" type of look on his face. Joe suddenly realized he
  10. Right after Feder wrote that piece about Giangreco being AWOL for several weeks now with no explanation. Could these two things be related?
  11. This does seem like a situation where they might only staff in-house weather on weekdays and outsource either weekends or middays to the Fox Weather service. I would agree with Jase that perhaps the launch of Fox Weather is at least part of the reason why Bellis is out, which is what we feared when the service was announced - the departure of local meteorologists from Fox O&Os nationwide.
  12. I think you can get away with rerun newscasts at night, but so much stuff is happening in the national arena between 12pm-5pm CST that I don't think you can cram repeats during that block without it being very stale. It's arguably the busiest time of day in both the executive and legislative branches of government. You would at the very minimum need a live :00 and :30 block during those hours to provide all of the latest headlines and press conference clips.
  13. Yeah, I could definitely see everything that doesn't fit into network programming or ESPN being shifted over to streaming-only platforms. I could even see FS1 being obsoleted by streaming after some time...
  14. I found it interesting that the commercial they ran tonight, they only used NewsNation branding and not WGN America branding. Makes you wonder...
  15. Was she broadcasting from home or from one or both of the stations' studios?
