  1. I hope they don't hold onto the brand for much longer. It doesn't feel right having another media company using the Fox name as their public brand.
  2. I have to wonder what the timetable will be on the transition, what might change with the names of the networks, and if they'll tie programming, content, and/or on-air appearance into the Cubs Marquee network that Sinclair will also be operating.
  3. Wow, I didn't realize she was that far along. They just announced that Lourdes Duarte is going on maternity leave after today. She's due in about a week/week and a half or so. They actually did a whole montage about Lourdes's career at WGN, narrated by Ben Bradley. Few anchors in TV are lucky enough to get that special of a maternity farewell!
  4. https://www.robertfeder.com/2019/08/23/nbc-5-launch-new-lifestyle-show-chicago-today-sept-6/#more-22764 Starring Cortney Hall and Matthew Rodrigues, it debuts Sept. 6 and will air from 11:30am-12pm, cutting the 11am newscast in half. It's interesting that the initial launch will only be on Fridays, with a planned expansion to 5 days a week later on. Do they want to test the waters before committing to it? Or maybe they don't have enough guests lined up right away? I didn't know the market needed a Windy City Live competitor, but here we are.
  5. Well, the staff continues to cut itself ahead of the Nexstar acquisition. Wonder if they'll see any need to replace her position, either. She was mainly in a supplemental news update role that the anchors could just as easily handle.
  6. Wow, that's awesome. The last two themes that they've been using just didn't feel the same.
  7. That shocked me, to say the least. I would have to assume that WGN will eliminate the afternoon traffic position, right? I don't think they had an afternoon fill-in for her whenever she was off or when she would fill-in for Sarah in the mornings.
  8. As I understand it, the only reason for the slimmed down score bug was because the game was simulcast on ABC, and they wanted to shrink it down in case any affiliates were showing the game in SD 4:3.
  9. I know up until this year, affiliates were given the ability to skin the StatCast graphics with their own look. Is that no longer an option?
  10. I wouldn't say NBC-styled. It's basically the current Fox scoreboard with the 2014-2017 Fox inset graphics, but it looks to be more like the Super Bowl LI variant with all of the borders removed/made transparent.
  11. Does anybody know if these teaser graphics are new? I haven't watched their 4pm news in a long time. Is this part of a different graphics package?
  12. The Bears and Packers are among the most historic teams in the NFL, yet their preseason packages are among the ugliest. Whoever made the Packers package also thinks the current ESPN NFL graphics look good. >_>
  13. Nope, NBC 5 terminated their lease on the streetside studio (it wasn't in their own building) back in 2012. ABC 7 is the only one in the market still using a streetside studio.
  14. According to Feder's post this morning, ABC 7 will still utilize him here and there when needed. I assume it will be a lot less often now. Besides, he never "left" Milwaukee anyway, right? His main job has always been there, as I understand it.
  15. I'll actually miss the 7pm newscast on WCIU. I've watched it more than I've watched any other weekday ABC 7 newscast in the past 3 years.
