News Director

News Director (7/8)



  1. I imagine since it's rolling dayside news coverage and not a personality-based show, they aren't teasing it. Dayside is essentially "have it on in the background"/"check in occasionally" programming vs. the more opinionated primetime shows or the morning offerings (where the most eyeballs are).
  2. Brian's come a long way when he was known as "Brian Taffe" and working for what was then known as YNN (now Spectrum News) in NY hosting Capital Tonight.
  3. I know it gets its share of critics #onhere, but I don't hate the current WABC look. It's simple (without being too simple), clean, and well-executed. Not everything has to be elaborate and splashy. (Of course, there was the NEWS YORK'S #1 NEWS incident, but...)
  4. Mentioned it in Discord, but Chris Licht at least has to give Shep a call, right? It's almost too good a fit with the vision he has for CNN.
  5. Can't find it in Discord, but after seeing it on TV, it's essentially calling out WSB doing it "just to make money" and stating their (46's) commitment to the community not being temporary. I'll add that 11 Alive has started to take some digs at ANF on some billboards I've seen around town. One says "Breaking News F1RST" and another says "Severe Weather F1RST", with the number 1 in the 11 Alive logo in place of the "I" in the word "FIRST".
  6. In fairness to BBC America, it's an entertainment channel co-owned by AMC Networks and BBC. That said, they did roll a ticker pointing viewers to BBC World News and BBC.com:
  7. I pulled up the Ducks game and it looks like they have a team-specific open. I didn’t record it but if you have ESPN+ you can take a look. With the NBA starting up this week, I’m guessing they’ll roll out team-specific opens for those teams as well. Here in Atlanta they’re still using the generic open for Atlanta United (with a brief highlight reel beforehand), but I’m assuming that will change in 2022.
  8. Hate to hear this about Paul. I remember him from his Weather Channel days.
  9. Wasn’t mentioned but it looks like CBS is waiting until next season to update its regular season college basketball graphics. The old score bug was in place for the Kentucky/Auburn game yesterday and the open was the same outside of replacing the old CBS Sports logo with the new one. Instead of the CBS Sports NCAA logo in the upper right hand corner, though, it had a CBS | SEC logo. They did a bracket special prior to the game using the current March Madness graphics, so it remains to be seen if that will carry over through the tournament or be updated.
  10. I have no knowledge of HS football in Missouri, but I’m not liking the Ravens’ chances in that one
  11. Wow. I enjoyed watching Christine when I lived in Charlotte as she and John Carter made a great team. Looking forward to seeing her on FOX 5!
  12. I like the graphics. Surprised some are saying that it's a downgrade from the previous look. There should be plenty of tweaks before the 2020 NFL season begins and as they make their way to other properties, I think.
  13. I'm sure there will be another variation for the other sports it carries.
  14. Today was Brigida Mack's last day at WBTV...she is leaving the station after 10 years. Her reporting work, involvment in the community, as well as launching their 4pm newscast and (now-defunct) 8pm newscast on their .2 (Bounce TV) were really some key reasons why WBTV has overtaken WSOC for No. 1 in the ratings.
