  1. Yeah. That's definitely a Linear Drift package. https://www.lineardrift.com/gallery#/wboc-2020/
  2. Wendy Nations has since replaced Austin Onek on weekends, though I'm not sure if her role is temporary or permanent.
  3. The assimilation has gone full speed ahead despite an uncertain future for TEGNA at this moment. My guess is that all of their remaining stations will have the uniform look before the end of April.
  4. This would create a mess in the Memphis and Knoxville markets since Gray owns WMC-TV and WVLT respectively while TEGNA owns WATN/WLMT along with WBIR. Not only that, but Louisville, Huntsville, Charlotte, New Orleans, Cleveland, Toledo, Odessa/Midland, Waco, Tyler/Longview, and Bryan/College Station are all conflicts. That would mean having to unload stations in Atlanta, Seattle, Memphis, Jacksonville, Charlotte, and Spokane (which happened as a result of Cox's merger with Northwest via Apollo) where Cox and TEGNA already have conflicting assets.
  5. That may not have been an option for WTVF to consider, especially with their studios being in close proximity to the Tennessee State Capitol and adjacent government buildings. Plus, the station itself is landlocked, and acquiring land to accommodate a helipad would've likely come at a premium for them as opposed to using John C Tune.
  6. It's been like that for the past couple of months. They have even begun doing those Verify segments TEGNA has been rolling out at their stations.
  7. Where exactly would they put the setup for CBSN Miami? WFOR's main studio is relatively small to begin with, and I can't imagine they have adequate space available for an OTT operation.
  8. That's a most definite as using Local 'Channel Number' as branding isn't so much of a thing anymore except for maybe a handful of TV stations these days. They'll most likely be re-branded as WATN 24 and WOI 5 on the non-news side of things. As for newscasts, a return to the generic "Channel 5 News" or "News 5" branding would probably be the most logical direction WOI to go at this point. WATN may require some "creativity" to say the least as a means of moving ratings in the right direction. On a side note, WOITV.com re-directs to WeAreIowa.com, so that should give you an idea on what direction they might be going.
  9. Not sure why, considering they're a TEGNA station now, but Jeez Louise does KTXL need some new mic flags.
  10. What KOIN got was an FX job even though most of Nexstar's set builds have largely been done in-house with local contractors. You'll probably see something along the lines of what WJHL, WKBN, and WHO-TV recently received.
  11. You would think with the space they have in the new studio they would've placed an actual weather center in there. Not even WCAU's new digs looked this sterile.
  12. That was typical of the Hearst-Argyle and former McGraw-Hill stations back in the day, and yet WRTV still uses TheIndyChannel.com though to this very day.
  13. If this were the Nexstar of old, you would've seen something like CarolinasHomepage.com, CharlottesHomepage.com, and the like. These days, they have mostly settled on giving their station websites more normal domain names than ridiculous ones. IMHO, the MyFox domain names need to die, as they're an old relic from the Fox O&O/MySpace days.
  14. No major graphic changes at WREG (although the current package did receive some updates today). However, they have switched from inthegroovemusic's Pride to Stephen Arnold's Aerial for music.
  15. Nah. i'd prefer either the WISH-TV or KOIN packages better for WREG than the standard Nexstar CBS package, tbh.
