  1. Looks like Ukee and Jessica have individual setups in front of separate monitors. It doesn't look like either are in the main studio at all so we may finally see them getting a much needed new set.
  2. I'm surprised Comcast didn't put a bid to be their rights holder either via NBC Sports NW or a new RSN for Seattle. They seem to like having RSNs in regions where they are the dominant cable provider.
  3. They'll probably wait till the 2022 NHL Winter Classic and change everything then...that is if they plan on having one network wide package again which it doesn't look like they intend on doing. I'm sure they want to keep their EPL broadcasts aligned with the SkySports look, their NFL look is more of an evolution of the 2015 look than anything else so that could change for this upcoming Super Bowl, and they've been slowly rolling out a unique look for the NHL that started way back in 2019 for the Stanley Cup Finals and if they do intend on finishing the look by replacing the score
  4. I didn't know Anzio left. This is a good get for the station.
  5. And he's gone from the NFL broadcasts: https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/08/20/fox-takes-thom-brennaman-off-nfl-broadcasts/
  6. Only a slight change for NBC, starting with yesterday's games both the national broadcasts and RSNs are showing a constant shot clock on the scorebar during even strength play. The design of the scorebar prevents them from displaying during power plays which I'm sure they'll address with the next package.
  7. I'm hoping (but not holding my breath) that NBC finally finishes its long drawn out NHL graphics update. They updated a ton of insert elements during the Qualifying Round after debuting the animation package last playoffs. That leaves them down to just the scorebar, lowers and general chart elements that have not been updated.
  8. Yeah they're showing games that fall between the Noon and 4PM windows as "bonus coverage" after the Noon game is over. Easy way to fill programming.
  9. That's clearly not the full schedule. I dunno why they'd release this if they don't have the details for all the games for the first two rounds fully pinned down.
  10. Yup. Glenn is currently covering for her while she's on vacation.
  11. Filling in for Britney Shipp who's on maternity leave.
  12. That's just from the CBS O&O coronavirus special graphics. Been seeing these since the beginning of the outbreak.
  13. Jim Rosenfield explained how they're handling the outbreak: Notice he said weather and digital teams are working remotely (ie from home).
  14. Same building. It's literally right next to the news studio. With 1060 now out of the building though, they could convert the space they vacated into studio space if they ever decide to move on from their now pushing 10 year old set.
  15. Philly has a second studio. Dunno why they didn't build a set for CBSN in there. They haven't used that space since they stopped doing the "Einstein Science" segments last year.
  16. That leaves DC as the only RSN with the 2008 set (although they gave it nice refresh a few years ago).
  17. You shouldn't. The name and logo are very Chicago Cubs-centric. They're both nods to Wrigley Field. They're more likely to be branded to align with Stadium than anything else. Could you imagine how a Cardinals fan would react to having to watch their games on a network branded in a Cubs motif?
  18. That's definitely Frank they're using as their font. And I agree, I would love for this to spread group wide. Or even do like they did with the soccer score bar, and flatten out the rest of the current package.
  19. There were some CBS executives (including Les Moonves) that were placed on the Entercom board as part of the spinoff. Their seats were temporary while the new company got on its feet. I dunno if they're still currently there (well we know Les isn't lol) or not but those were the terms.
  20. I think it'll be on a market by market basis. Take LA for example. Hypothetically that cluster could partner up with say KABC but right up the coast, the SF cluster could stay with KPIX.
  21. KYW had been simulcasting EN even after the spinoff. IIRC part of the terms of the spinoff were, CBS was to maintain their partnerships with the radio stations for a year and then they were free to do whatever they want. The Philly cluster partnering with NBC 10 is just the first shoe to drop. That said there's nothing stopping other markets from just reupping with the CBS O&O they were previously aligned with. I think it's safe to say Entercom Philly couldn't wait to be free of CBS3 and the mess they're currently in.
  22. Yup. I had a feeling something like this would happen after CBS spun the radio group off. I wonder if KYW will simulcast Nightly News now or stay local at 6:30.
  23. Wow this is big, NBC 10 is partnering with the Entercom Radio cluster in Philly provide weather and share news and traffic. https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/business/nbc10-telemundo62-announce-new-partnership-with-entercom-radio-stations/2292521/ Get prepared to hear First Alert Weather forecasts and Traffic reports on the Entercom stations, KYW NewsRadio stories on NBC 10.
  24. NFL Films produces the halftime show separately from the game broadcaster.
