  1. Being comfortable with roommates should also be in the job description, because there's no way this job pays enough to have your own place in SF proper. Or really anywhere within walking distance to a BART station. Signed, Apartment-poor tech worker
  2. Probably just a trigger-happy APC operator. Looks like the steadicam shot held for too long as well, so seems like a one-time mess up.
  3. I don't think KGO has a "chief meteorologist" these days, but he handles weekday weather at 4:00 and 6:00pm.
  4. Well, I don't know if I'd go *that* far...
  5. Non-Stop Music I think had a pretty solid radio business – they created Premier News for KGO-AM (side note: I miss that old KGO all the time), and First News has been used on a ton of news radio stations, most notably being WCBS-AM in New York. But yeah, that's definitely Counterpoint on KMBZ. While I never can remember where I leave my sunglasses, I definitely distinctly remember seeing a clip of WPTV using that cut of Counterpoint as a bump-in in like 2000/2001.
  6. Wow, quick fall for Cohen who's relegated to dawn patrol now. Never was a big fan of his style on the KFMB morning show, and was dubious it would translate well to nightside at KTTV (or anywhere, for that matter). On the other hand, what a crazy rise for Elex. I think he was hired by XETV right out of USC, then shortly bounced back to LA at KABC before landing at KTTV, and now he's their prime anchor. Lesson for you kids out there: if you want to avoid small-market bullshit for the first 5-7 years of your TV career, better start applying for those student loans for an undergrad degree from Annenberg.
  7. Jeeze. KTVU should totally go back to this over the crap Arnold music they're now using...
  8. Not to derail this thread anymore, but... "old timers" knife into chest Anyway, the Wake Up graphics are great. WUSA is lucky to have an in-house designer as great as this guy.
  9. Ugh it pains me to read a current moderator of this very website refer to him as a "former member." He's a bit more significant than that.
  10. Huh. TIL KCBA had its own news operation; always thought it was combined with KCCN/KION.
  11. The downward angle mounting was to eliminate glare/reflections from glossy LCD displays. LED walls are essentially matte and don't have the reflection issues, so you can shoot them straight-on without a problem.
  12. I'm sure this will look along the lines of what Devlin designed for some of the smaller-market Hearst stations, e.g. the sets that KSBW and KOCO recently received.
  13. Looks like both WMBB and WJHG are dunzo as Panama City is getting a direct hit from the eyewall around 12:30pm local time. WJHG's livestream is showing a "technical difficulties" slide and WMBB's livestream has been stuck at 12:15pm for a while now.
  14. I once anchored my college's newscast in track pants and a suit jacket + shirt and tie combo. Very comfortable. Doesn't beat the shorts + jacket/shirt/tie look though!
  15. Good look for KMIR. Surprised that GrooveWorx licensed the NBC music package to them, given that KNBC is still available on Spectrum cable throughout the Coachella Valley. But it seems like the licensing companies aren't as sensitive about the same package in adjacent markets these days. I'm more of a Chill Bar and Tool Shed kinda guy myself...
