  1. I know that the wooden panels on the floor are what are pulled up to put the desk wings into place. I assume there's electrical connections or uplighting underneath for the wings. They may no longer use them except for guest segments. They're removed completely for the Evening News.
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m51U82j-ttY the best cut of the bumper/headline theme is at 16:58 and it appears this was a full theme as each segment has it's own custom cut. the NMSA has this theme listed as being a custom composure, however, if there are no other stations who used this theme I was wondering if anyone would be able to identify the artist? I'm asking because this is the newscast that I grew up watching so by default this is my favorite news theme.
  3. I'm sure 15 years ago, many people would have said "rectangular desks and sharp cornered news sets? that kind of design has no place in a serious newscast" "Electric guitar-heavy rythms? No place in a serious newscast". Don't be surprised if this kind of "European" music starts catching on and being developed for more stations/station groups. Call me insane, but the more I've listened to the music the more I have fallen in love with it - even with the weird "scat" vocals. Kudos to Tegna for stepping outside the box and redefining what is used as a theme.
  4. Exactly. I couldn't have said it any better.
  5. In the wake of the recent sexual harassment allegations, this is probably one of the ones I am the most upset and disheartened by. I very much enjoyed watching Charlie Rose's reporting, and his on air chemistry with Norah and Gayle. However, I thought this morning's CBS This Morning was incredibly strong and well done. They made no effort to try and use a third substitute anchor (as they always do when someone is away, or on vacation) nor sugar coat and/or not mention the allegations. They made the decision to deliberately show the broadcast missing one of their key anchors. I appreciate that their reporting was straight-forward and candid as well as the responses from Norah and Gayle showing the incredibly difficult side of having known someone personally who has been accused of misconduct.
  6. Well this news certainly caught me off guard and has killed the mood of my afternoon. Yeah, CTM is f'd.
  7. Oh yeah. They're incredibly timely about posting game show sets as well.

  9. This is also the package KVIA is using .
  10. It looks like there must have been at least a few feet in the studio, with a fairly significant flowing force - The weather(?) presentation area just to the left of the anchor desk is completely knocked over. It may not have been that heavy to begin with and may have actually floated and then been tipped over. Also, does the main anchor desk look to anyone else as though it's been rolled/moved over a few inches? It may be the perspective of the photo that is throwing me off.
  11. I'm going to guess from the lower-thirds that this is from the same company who designed WAGT's late 90s package. (Was it TVBD?)
  12. WJBF also used this weather template from the mid 90's to around 2002 maybe? 2:45
  13. Granted, nobody else but me and West Texas will enjoy these... but I recently found some 1994 KVIA news opens, with their famous news theme I grew up listening to and can still hum by heart, as well as that old blue and beige set with copper trim. Fun to see Gary Warner with hair and Estella, well... she looks about the same. (these are all videos of a police officer highlighting his media coverage, but he made sure to include most of the opens) KVIA First in News open with Laura Palka and Robert Rodriguez KVIA's classic 10 at 10 open from 1994 Good Morning El Paso open from 1994
