  1. Somewhat worth noting that the WFSB win was by anchor Denise D'Ascenzo, who passed away suddenly in December.
  2. I just watched the retrospective video. Why wouldn't they have one of his longtime co-workers track the piece? Having the voiceover guy do it just sounds so impersonal.
  3. The plexi skyline backdrop from this set still exists and it's actually installed in current anchor Dennis House's attic.
  4. Quarantine and business downturn be damned, the TV nerdz want new graphics now!
  5. I wonder if this is a group-wide effort to play with the 11pm format and see if people stick around? WFTV is using the same branding and an alternate version of the graphics on WSOC.
  6. Going allllll the way back to page one of this thread, WOIO's look has been claimed by Matt Quinn, who also does work with Hothaus (explaining why it's so similar to other Hothaus packages but not an official one). https://mattquinncreative.com/woio-cleveland
  7. John is getting up there and his style of "over the top" voicing is going out of fashion. Unfortunately it's not a huge surprise. I worked with John years ago and he was a great, flexibile VO guy but really not the kind of imaging voice people are looking for now.
  8. The big question: will they finally drop MCTYW?
  9. That Mass Lottery music at 19:30... oh my God I'd forgotten all about that!!!!!!!
  10. Today, nearly two months after WFSB anchor Denise D’Ascenzo passed away, a public memorial was held on her honor. Among those in attendance were her family, a “who’s who” of Connecticut TV news in the 80’s and 90’s, plus thousands of people from across the state. The article includes the complete 40-minute video of the event. As a coworker of Denise it was heartbreaking to lose her, but inspiring to see people come together from around the nation (some who hadn’t worked in the market for decades) to honor such a special woman who left us way too soon. https://www.wfsb.com/news/channel-remembers-denise-d-ascenzo-with-public-memorial/article_d6875736-428b-11ea-94fc-0f074654419a.html
  11. That's going to be interesting to see what they do considering WHCT doesn't even have must-carry status anymore.
  12. Airchecks probably don't get much older than this!
  13. Outside the region the SEC games pull minuscule numbers on a lot of CBS affiliates. Given continuing audience fragmentation and the other factors cited above this is no big surprise.
  14. WOAI is celebrating 40 years and all of their spots feature a vintage Gari package. Can anyone identify the signature? I know it's not Hello.
  15. How's that tinfoil hat working out for you?
