  1. A pair of morning newscasts from Louisiana adopt local flavor for interesting titles. KLFY/Lafayette's Passe Partout ...and KALB/Alexandria's Jambalaya
  2. From the WAVY archive... a 1981 report on the FCC filing for channel 43... 12 years before WVBT hit the air.
  3. Debi Chard is retiring after nearly 43 years at WCSC. http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/14/debi-chard-announces-retirement-live-news-after-almost-years/ Her last broadcast is tonight at 6.
  4. That open looks fine... it’s not ugly and it gets the job done.
  5. News out of Charlottesville, VA... Gray Television will sell the “Charlottesville Newsplex” CBS/ABC affiliates (WCAV/WVAW) to an affiliate of Lockwood Broadcasting. In turn, Gray is buying WVIR (NBC) from Waterman. It doesn’t appear to be part of any larger acquisition by Gray affecting WBBH/WZVN in Ft. Myers. Read more here.
  6. Keri's voice is a bit more sultry and enunciated. Suzy has a friendlier tone. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the NMSA entries are mislabeled either. WRC sounds more like Suzy Nelson
  7. A portion of a KING weekend newscast from 1999. Lots of other material on this channel. I don’t remember seeing this set of KING graphics before... these must have been used for about a year, right before the former Providence Journal stations package.
  8. Donna Gregory, formerly of WRAL, WNCN and NBC News is filling in for WWAY’s Randy Aldridge while he undergoes cancer treatment. https://www.wwaytv3.com/2019/02/22/veteran-anchor-donna-gregory-joins-wway-news-team/ She’s resided in the Wilmington since 2012.
  9. Great to hear more of that Otis Conner/Arnold theme!
  10. Do you have an idea of how long this series of opens was used? Did they have the 2000/2001 Raycom package? That’d be my guess.
  11. Atlanta brand identity firm Matchstic is behind the new design.
  12. The thing is... they had been using Image IX since 1997 with what sounds like the 'proper' cut. As for the three notes that sound when the newsrooms in Lynchburg, Danville, and Roanoke are mentioned - I can't tell if those are the NBC chimes mixed in with the music, or added when the open was produced. I'd say no since they're a little too slow to sound like NBC chimes, and don't even sound like G-E-C (I'm not musically inclined, so I can't tell)
  13. The AirCraft Library is part of Soundtrack Group.
  14. Or how about Vince Gerasole & Heidi Umbhau? Look at how she looks over at him at :16. Awww. They’re still married.
  15. A new year looming means more disputes... Mediacom and TEGNA: http://links.mail.mediacom.info/a/1223/preview/2761/2160062/1490962c17516c1f2aa59f64c89f9d5a4ac02e3c Cox and Nexstar: https://keepmynbc.com https://keepmyabc.com https://keepmycbs.com
