    The "3" Thread

    You know what it reminds me of? And that was the channel's best era. As much as I want WKYC to open up that huge newsroom and do a similar style show, it's Tegna, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The "3" Thread

    Ah yes, the Land of the 3. Oh wait--sorry--wrong 3.
  3. I'll second the accolades for France 24 look - that has aged VERY well and still feels very urgent and sophisticated.
  4. I don't necessarily believe there is one right "look" for TV news - it all just depends on the message the brand is trying to convey. There can definitely be sophistication in 3D - and 2D can look super tacky (see: TEGNA.) It comes down to process, development, and execution. Franceinfo isn't completely my cup of tea, but I don't necessarily think it's a bad design.
  5. I do not get the hate for the WDAF graphics - I think they’re amazing and among the most modern looks on US local TV right now. They’re what the TEGNA look should be and that was made by a top agency!
  6. A real shame KOIN dropped The Unexpected—they commissioned some really nice updates to that package. That aside, I’m not as thrilled with the graphics as others here, but it works well as a non-network branded package, much like the “ABC” Nexstar package.
  7. Looks a little like it's trying to be WISH, but flatter.
  8. Only now that they can't buy Trib.
  9. On a more serious note - likely the only reason it's GMA-branded is because ABC sees some value in the brand now, given the parent program's #1 rating in HHs during the morning--and their recent demo wins. I like the Crew name too, but this looks like ABC trying to build GMA into a more fluid, all-hours brand like Today.
  10. Personally I was hoping for a rename to GMA3: Return of the Jedi. We also would've accepted GMA3: G With a Vengeance.

    WJZ 7PM News?

    TBH I wish someone would try a full hour of national news at 7PM--it might go a long way to restoring the prestige these shows are just hanging on to. That aside--guessing they're mandating the Evening News at 6.30 across the board to maximize the chances of Norah's success.
  12. Funny you mention - Philly Live is now a thing with a different host, but it will be a 15-minute segment at 11:45AM. WCAU just started running quick promos.
  13. I actually think the open looks a bit cleaner now - pretty nice!
  14. The 10PM news on PHL 17 just crashed into commercial - video wall wasn't working and they cut everything to black a few seconds after... --They came back like nothing happened. Though the wall is from a different daypart and not moving. Was hoping they had a textured blue background on standby like WLS!
  15. That's at least a better version of WGHP's set. Guessing it'll be Beyond for the music.
  16. Given the other sets they've worked on (in particular PVI's) this feels a bit of a disappointment. The interview set is probably the nicest part of that set, but again, video walls are becoming really old, really fast, and the rest of this doesn't bring anything particularly interesting to the table in that regard.
  17. That just sounds like he either had a bad recording day (he will just record in random closets) or the producer messed up audio ingest. Chapin still sounds fine on HDH/SVN.
  18. That's an...interesting logo. Hope it doesn't end up on the main 12.
  19. I think that logo works a bit better with that set of Nexstar graphics vs. the standard CBS package. We've started to see some really awkward logos resolve in with that look. On the set side, especially given what looks like a pretty compact area to work with, that's probably the best job I've seen Nexstar do with a set.
  20. That was pretty close to a look KYW had...in 2002.
  21. That ain’t a knock-off. It’s the real deal from the FTS Graphics Hub. Also not the first time they’ve helped out a non-O&O either. Though what they did have before was definitely serviceable for that market.
  22. I always suspected it would be the FTN set - barring staffing it makes you wonder why they didn't launch right from DC out of the gate. Given the short tenure of Jeff Glor vs. the expectations set for Norah, months and even weeks do matter here.
  23. So FOX 29 was knocked off the air Saturday AM for several hours because of a power outage / underground fire right near their studios. They've been doing the news from the streetside studio ever since. Wonder if their videowall-heavy studio got damaged from some kind of power surge?
  24. More and more companies are producing web-exclusive content. There are less and less sources of ad revenue online unless you want to become a video portal, which I suspect a market like Fargo can't support. Forum wants to be paid for the content they create, and I can't totally blame them. I think you'll see a point soon where some of the online-only newscasts become paywall'd--and so many are now used to receiving content for free that it's going to be a PAINFUL adjustment on both ends. The ones that are providing free content are hanging on by a thread. There will need to be a way to directly monetize it all, or you'll soon see no content of value at all on the Internet. The letter in the FTVLive piece tells me Scott may have jumped the gun on the TV website itself being paywall'd (guessing it'll be INFORUM.com first), but if they indeed go through with it, it'll be a noble, if not necessary experiment to see if some of these small market stations not owned by Sinclair or Nexstar can stay afloat.
  25. Honestly, that second VH knock off is pretty decent.
