  1. Even for a refresh, it's a vast improvement from the old setup.
  2. WALA's set has not aged well, which can be said of just about every FX-designed set from that era. I doubt they would get a setup like this, but anything from this early decade would be better than what they had.
  3. I've also noticed the flags have text in the corners that read "NEWS RIGHT NOW". Could be a hint about the news branding come Monday.
  4. Wouldn't be too hard to do, especially if they reverted back to their old ABC 5 branding in the near future. Here's a mock-up I made in under 30 minutes:
  5. Not entirely. Just some modifications were done for the on-air graphics while keeping the logo basically the same sans the whole WKRC copycat thing.
  6. I see. So, they're going with a WVEC-esque look now. Link to the story: https://www.localmemphis.com/article/about-us/local-memphis-and-local-24-becoming-abc24-on-september-27/522-1dd5ae03-80cb-47d4-8227-c123a5e42cd5?utm_medium=social&utm_source=undefined_janiceTVnews
  7. WATN's new schedule as of September 27th (changes highlighted in bold): 5:00AM: Good Day Memphis 7:00AM: Good Morning America 9:00AM: The Ellen Degeneres Show (moving from 4:00PM; replacing 20 Words or Less) 10:00AM: The View 11:00AM: ABC24 News Midday (reduced to a half-hour newscast) 11:30AM: Daily Blast Live 12:00PM: GMA3: What You Need to Know 1:00PM: General Hospital 2:00PM: Dr. Phil (moving up one hour) 3:00PM: The Nick Cannon Show 4:00PM: Hot Bench (two episodes; moving from WLMT) 5:00PM: ABC24 News 5:30PM: ABC Worl
  8. Wouldn't make sense to continue having a working newsroom on the 3rd floor when you have space on the 4th already serving that purpose.
  9. After a few years, WMC-TV modified its logo and branding once again as of 4:00pm yesterday, going back to just Action News 5 without the call letters. Graphics have not changed. New logo: Previous logo: They have also adopted the slogan "Taking Action For You" after years of going without an official one on their newscasts (Only saying "With all of today's Breaking News, WMC Action News 5 at _____ starts now!") I do have my criticisms about the new logo: 1) They ditched the steamboat, which had been a part of the station'
  10. Very similar to what WVIR received a couple of months ago.
  11. Meh. They only refinished the floor and replaced the monitors. Nothing else.
  12. No. WSPA's new set was done in-house, and has similarities to a few other Nexstar-designed sets that have rolled out over the last year or two.
  13. Knowing Nexstar, they will look to utilize every corner ...... I mean, every square inch of the expanded studio space they can to maximize its usage.
  14. WMC-TV switched recently, as have KAIT and KFVS.
  15. WALA-TV (prior to 2002 when they moved to their current facility near Hank Aaron Stadium in West Mobile) had operated from a 2-story building downtown on Government Street (across from Mobile Government Plaza) for several decades. It has since been renovated into office space for an engineering firm; however, a historical marker was placed on the Joachim Street side a few years ago recognizing the station's history at that location. https://www.google.com/maps/@30.6895551,-88.0432453,3a,15y,52.77h,86.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sgziGPCblN-WW8YwKwN__GA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
