  1. Paul and Bill actually were promo voices for WPVI in the late 90s and 2000s before Charlie took over. Paul is also local based here in the suburbs so his voice wouldn't be foreign to the station and its viewers at all.
  2. Yeah and he's definitely lost his fastball. It's not Jeff Kaye's last opens bad but it ain't too far off. They would best be served finding someone else next time they need opens. (I vote for Paul Turner or Bill Ratner.)
  3. Roundball Rock now being used for FS1 games after only being used for Fox games last year.
  4. They must be going back to the drawing board to rethink the show formats. Traditionally for them, the noon news was predominately a hard news show and when they expanded it to an hour, they had the lighter stuff towards the back end of the second half hour. When the 4PM launched, it was faster paced with the news and features were dispersed through out. The 5PM has always been longer form hard news. With Alicia possibly joining the noon (perhaps only for the 2nd half hour) maybe they want the noon show to become like (or replace) the 4PM and have the 4PM become a harder news show to compete with 10 at 4. As of right now, 10's the only station in that timeslot doing a full hard news hour. 3's doing a complete fluff show (hell they sit on damn couch) and 6 is trying to do both and perhaps they want to get away from that.
  5. Probably a no go now that FOX holds the license for it. Bad move by NBC letting it lapse. I do hope that RSNs pick up William Goldstein's NHL theme though if the plan is to fully move away from Peter Calandra's CSN music collection.
  6. Perhaps Rick and Sharrie are the new 5PM paring, with Rick moving to 10PM and Brian to Noon?
  7. They ran the generic open at the top of the show as well. Perhaps something's up.
  8. That was covered earlier. The RSNs as a whole abandoned using a ticker. Don't know why but they did.
  9. Yeah, It's the NBC Sports ticker. They adapt it to focus on whatever sport is being presented live, but then during regular studio shows, it runs through all sports.
  10. NBC Sports Philadelphia did the same but had it all cleaned up by the halftime show.
  11. Yeah it def sounds like a hybrid of Roundball Rock and the NBA TNT theme. It's catchy.
  12. And this is why you shouldn't abandon your ticker...
  13. Regionals are now also using the replay wipes the mothership uses:
