  1. That logo is taking a page (somewhat) from its sister station WCTV in Tallahassee.
  2. Their current logo is a nod to the last one they had under Jefferson-Pilot's ownership prior to Raycom's purchase (albeit is not quite the same):
  3. Exactly. Conflicts are conflicts. Sinclair tried doing this with Tribune and got dragged tremendously, so why should Soo Kim be treated any differently in this bad faith of a deal he's trying to pull off?
  4. News Central was also something Sinclair attempted to do at all of their stations during the mid-2000s.
  5. Gray needed somewhere to park a future Telemundo feed in that market.
  6. This is how you give viewers whiplash, ladies and gentlemen.
  7. I think Comcast/NBC is doing this in large part because of the potential fallout we're likely to see with Bally Sports' looming bankruptcy. They smell blood in the water and want in.
  8. That's what happens when you decide to go the Nexstar route and do all of your set builds in-house instead of outsourcing to a third party like in the past. Quite a shame.
  9. The proper term is "infotainment". Think Better TV under Meredith.
  10. How bad is it over at KCTV, ratings-wise, for them to cycle through so many NDs in over a decade?
  11. That's the old WFAA set. Well, the desk came from there at least.
  12. I haven't heard this version of News Series 2000 before.
  13. Ads have already started running in affected markets with a Nexstar-owned CBS station:
  14. I would suspect other station groups will do the same, especially now that election season is over and with market uncertainty being the way it is right now. You either cut back on spending enough to weather the storm until things get better, or at worst do rounds of layoffs.
  15. I definitely noticed the community names. The added beams on the set are a nice touch and a nod to the three bridges (Memphis-Arkansas/1-55, Frisco, & Harahan) on the southern end of downtown Memphis.
  16. This is what the main desk area looks like. Notice the industrial elements in the backdrop.
  17. The desk design is different, and there's a lot of "industrial" framing in various areas of the new set. Other than that, it's no different from the other TEGNA stations that received the Jack Morton/PDG/blackwalnut/Joe Lamberta design.
  18. You're not missing much. It's your typical TEGNA set, albeit with some modifications.
  19. Nice guy, and a very good move up for him too.
  20. I swear KDVR and KWGN cycle through more sets than the average TV station usually does. As for the question you asked about energy efficiency, the seamless LED video walls that are being utilized throughout KDVR's new set are supposedly low maintenance and more efficient than the alternative, which is plastering the studio with grids of giant TV monitors (which Nexstar does when it comes to their in-house builds).
  21. Per Twitter this morning, former WATN/WLMT reporter & sports director Marcus "Doc" Holliday has been hired by WMC-TV to take over as the station's sports director - succeeding Jarvis Greer, who is retiring at the end of the year.
  22. This was all done in-house. Not by FX Group. If they wanted to go for a coastal look, they did a very sterile and generic job at doing so.
  23. So, looking at WHBQ's schedule as of today, the following changes have been made: - Sherri Shephard at 10AM - DISH Nation at 11:30AM - Family Feud at Noon (replacing The Real) in addition to 4PM - Divorce Court at 2:00PM (replacing Judge Jerry) Don't know why they decided to double down (or quadruple down, in this case) on Family Feud, tbh.
  24. My guess is the new setup will be along the lines of what KTHV, WCNC, and (to an extent) KARE all received recently.
