  1. MLB Network is in that space. Wiki says so is NHL Network. Unless I'm mistaken and NBC used two NJ locations.
  2. Perhaps they are dealing with their own COVID outbreak and staffing levels are impacted?
  3. Wherever they were, it's back to the main set today, though weather/traffic were still at the green screen only from what I scanned on Vuit from the 8am hour. EDIT: Looks like it was back to normal as of the 4pm cast Thursday, going back a bit on Vuit.
  4. Editing my initial post because now I'm not sure if that's a chromakey or a big ol' monitor behind them because the images are changing behind the anchor, but it sure seems like they are in a different spot...unless they just pulled everything in tight? Here's a grab from today: And here's one from 12/13: On the 4pm today, they are using close-ups on the anchors.
  5. I wish there would be a Local Forcast based on IP location. The best was The Weather Network’s live stream that included a LDL and a Local on the 8s-like Forecast. I know The Weather Channel Android app can do a local bottom line, but you’d think more apps would take advantage.
  6. It wasn’t a standalone network in that sense. MLB basically bought the time on ABC and NBC for the games. The Wiki entry explains it better than I can: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Baseball_Network
  7. Purely idle speculation, but could Fox consider dumping FS2 for Fox Weather? Also, @Georgie56that YT link is set to private.
  8. The Fox Weather/The Weather Live unlisted Youtube link shared earlier in the thread has updated graphics like the ones in the Variety article. Before they looked more like standard FNC graphics. Actually, there's now an America Live Weather stream that has the graphics previously used on the Fox Weather stream, with a look very much in line with the Fox News Channel logo, so I wonder if that's going to pop up on FNC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJVjv8qNIDY
  9. About time. Interesting that it has a different "look" than the NFL package - Fox might be hopping on the different looks for different sports train. Some more: https://www.sportsvideo.org/2021/10/07/mlb-postseason-2021-foxs-new-graphics-package-showcases-gamification-natural-elements-of-baseball/
  10. Ok, let’s take a look at the YouTube views. I see a couple with views in the thousands, but many are under 1,000 views, some don’t even have 500. EDIT: I even flipped it to Most Popular and the numbers aren’t that exciting. Only one with over a million views, four over 500K. I don’t know what any potential recording numbers might be. Does anyone release Live +7 numbers for NN? How much of their content is worth saving or binging? I also don’t know their app/website activity. If you do, please feel free to share what you have. It’s not that I don’t want NN to succeed, but they’re not exactly doing anything particularly exciting or different, so what’s the point of it? Did the world need yet another talking head channel?
  11. Based on those ratings, they should just run Blue Bloods all day.
  12. So Top Story does bring its own graphics spin - there's a different NBC News Now logo and the L3s are in a box rather than the strips you normally see.
  13. Is it just me, or is the CBS and MORNINGS/MORNING NEWS different sized and/or not aligned?
  14. That lower 3rd and local ticker combo makes no sense. Is CBSN next to get its refresh? I noticed the YT thumbnail has changed.
  15. Found this on ABC’s online store: https://shopabctv.com/pages/abc-local-stations
  16. Mamma-Mia, that’s a spicy meat-a-ball! From their FB page. I don’t mind the new logo but that color combo is rough
  17. I imagine that hour of NewsNation Prime goes away and On Balance slides into that slot when Dan Abrams’ show starts.
  18. Likely far less, but it would be an apples to oranges comparison IMO since those newscasts haven’t aired on the former WGNA since 2014.
  19. If you take a look at their weather videos, looks like the new graphics are active there.
  20. Looks good to me. MSNBC desperately needed a refresh and all the different looks for different stories was a mess, IMO. The only thing that surprises me is that the refreshed logo on-air is NOT the same as the one that’s been online and on the NBC News app for a while now. Very similar, but you can tell the difference by the Cs.
  21. The only reason I would even consider subscribing to this would be to catch Pelicans games I can't currently get streaming in market on NBA League Pass since YouTube TV dropped the RSNs. If they don't have the games, there's no point. Not really interested in this either:
  22. If NewsNation had come out of the gates with exclusive stories that they had enterprised on their own - ones that would've led those stories to be talked about on other outlets and given them basically free pub - there might've been a different story here. But they never bothered, just giving viewers a somewhat staid newscast with little of thousands of reporters they loved to mention in the build-up. Now? It'll slowly fill out the schedule with reheated news, some more opinion and either become a milquetoast attempt at being not quite as right as Fox or try to go even further right and fight for the sliver of that audience slice with OANN and Newsmax. With the reveal Bill Shine has been there since the beginning, their claim of bias-free is suspect, so it'll be that much harder to grow their news side, if they even really want to since we know Compton isn't happy with the results so far. Ultimately, NewsNation will limp along, helped by carriage agreements drawing minimal eyeballs, or filling the time between local newscasts on Nexstar's sites or on an app if the company decides they want to make one too. I do wonder if Compton's leash is getting shorter with the flop sweat growing on this product.
  23. Sounds like Compton isn’t happy with doing news without bias, so let’s swerve this thing to the right! https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/02/08/consultant-bill-shine-casts-fox-shadow-newsnation/ In a presentation described as meandering, Compton said the changes set for March 1 were just the beginning of plans for a 24-hour news product. Though short on specifics, he was clear what’s coming next will be different. “What we’re doing is friendly vanilla news and it’s not working,” he said according to two people in the room.
