  1. They went live today. Looks like a Nexstar-esque set but these graphics definitely look different from the normal stuff. It actually gives off the vibe of the pre-standardization WBZ look. I like.
  2. I haven't popped in on these threads in awhile, so I'm just seeing about the new GM. I wonder if this had anything to do with the way they covered the police shootings the other day. Their coverage was really good - they seemed to be more on top of developments than some of the other stations (particularly PVI, who was awful IMO), they had some great live shots, and they just pretty much nailed it IMO. If this is a sign of things to come with the new leadership it's highly encouraging for the station, I think.
  3. Boooooooo! They changed the music!
  4. Whoa. Wow. Shocked is all I can say.
  5. I dunno. Seems fine to me. WPVI had a rather classic promo some years back focusing on their microphones. This is kind of the same thing.

    WTTV New Look

  7. G3.0 predated the Belo acquisition by a year or two, and if I recall right weren't some stations still running on Deko systems? (I know Belo was standardizing around Miranda CGs at the time they got acquired - did Gannett/Tegna roll them out to legacy Gannett and ex-London stations?) In any event I still think G3.0/the USA Today package was the best example of that type of design. Maybe not as "flat" or trendy as their current stuff, but it was absolutely easy on the eyes, easy to discern, and logical to follow. The color-coding was genius, of course, but the thoughtful use of a grid-like design and grey/black hues made the whole thing distinctive. It reminded me somewhat of a well-designed webpage. Not the mess that Headline News had in the early 2000s, but if you're at all familiar with web design you can see the "grid" elements in there. I do agree with C Block that the look lost some of its charm around the Belo acquisition - partly because it became too common and partly because they began watering it down somewhat. I think the current graphical look is decent, distinctive, but I don't think it really "grabs" me on a pure design level as G3.0. (Honestly I think the music saves the current look.)
  8. That’s INSANE. In THAT market particularly you can’t just not do traffic. I’m gobsmacked.
  9. The Chew was more popular than a lot of people gave it credit for. My dad loved the show and was sad when they took it off, to the point of hating Strahan. I personally wish they’d just do an hour of game shows but that’s just me.
  10. She’s being eyed for a larger role at the new combined WB unit so I doubt it...
  11. Doing some more uploading from DVDs.
  12. Interesting news today: Fox 29 is moving their locally produced game show, The ClassH-Room, to 6:30pm weeknights starting March 4. Episode here if you want to see: Either the show is doing really well at noon, or it’s a cheaper alternative to Page Six TV. Either way it’s actually nice to see. It’s good to see a local station produce more than dozens of hours of news.
  13. As much as I like the live camera feeds the NBC O&Os use, that background looks really really sharp.
  14. I agree. The set designs and graphics packages they've used since taking over Media General have been, for the most part, top notch. The WISH package probably stands with some of the best graphics package designs in the standardized era.
  15. ...unpopular opinion but I think that logo actually looks fantastic...
