  1. ED2

    CBS Evening News

    I wonder if the new CBSEN is using a control room in Washington, DC, or if they are sending everything back to one of the control rooms in New York.
  2. So did Televisa just give everything they had left from CW6 to KFMB? Odd that KFMB would have that banner.
  3. For the Federal Elections, Global used the old Bloor Street studios (non-virtual) in the last election, and the ET CANADA set before that. For local news, all the local sets except Montreal feature real interview sets. The news desk is usually in the other half of the studio that is virtual. CKWS and CHEX’s sets are completely real for now. The virtual sets that we see today were rolled out back in 2008 in the smaller markets, and 2010 at BC/Calgary/Edmonton/Toronto. For Global National, I think they stopped using real sets in 2008 when the network moved the studio to Ottawa for a couple of years.
  4. CTV used the CFTO Toronto studio again for this election. That desk is massive. I thought CBC and Global had more interesting presentation this year. Also, interesting that every single CBC/CTV/Global station carried regional tickers showing local/regional results, rather than scrolling through all 322 ridings (Global promoted this but CTV/CBC didn't).
  5. One of the final WGN station IDs you'll see during a Cubs broadcast Seen at the end of the retrospective during the "10th Inning" broadcast after the game on WGN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cge3A5nsYN8
  6. I think CTV Toronto should simulcast CP24 at 5 AM right before Your Morning. They're already doing that at 5 PM. Why waste that time on paid programming or last night’s news
  7. CTV’s Your Morning is now airing on CTV stations in Western Canada on weekdays. The show now broadcasts live at 3 AM PT/5 AM CT, right before the local CTV Morning Live broadcasts. This means, for example: Viewers watching CTV Winnipeg will see only the first hour of Your Morning at 5 AM CT, followed by CTVML Winnipeg from 6-9 AM CT Viewers watching CTV Edmonton will see the first 1.5 hours of Your Morning at 4 AM MT, followed by CTVML Edmonton from 5:30-9 AM MT. Viewers watching CTV Vancouver will see a majority of Your Morning (2.5 hours) starting at 3 AM PT, with the last half hour being pre-empted for CTVML Vancouver at 5:30 AM PT. The eastern CTV stations (Toronto, Kitchener, Ottawa, Montreal, Atlantic) continues to air Your Morning in its entirety from 6-9 AM ET/7-10 AM AT, with local cut-ins at :25 and :55.
  8. A shooting has happened at a mall near Calgary, Alberta. This is how local TV in Calgary covered the incident on their late night newscasts.
  9. He didn't retire. He was forced to take a buyout. He mentioned on air that he wasn't retiring, but that he was leaving CFRN/CTV Edmonton. This Edmonton Journal article also mentions it. I am getting the sense from his interviews that he really didn't want to leave yet. It really sucks he didn't leave on his own terms, but he had a lovely send off on air. Cool to see clips from the Eyewitness News era. I am also wondering if CTV will also target other long-serving anchors like Ken Shaw (CFTO Toronto), Mutsumi Takahashi (CFCF Montreal), Steve Murphy (ATV Maritimes), or Gord Leclerc (CKY Winnipeg) in order to cut their budgets. BTW, over at Global Edmonton, Gord Steinke has been anchoring the evening news for about 27 years. He's the last of the old-school news anchors still left in Edmonton.
  10. Turns out, Radio-Canada Manitoba (French) is also broadcasting a separate election broadcast. They are using some interviews from CBC Manitoba, with a dubbed translation. Live stream - https://ici.radio-canada.ca/elections-manitoba-2019/resultats (Link at the very bottom)
  11. Tonight is the Manitoba provincial election, and CTV, CBC, and Global have pre-empted network programming to broadcast live election results coverage. Citytv Winnipeg has stuck with regular programming for the night. Here are some screenshots from tonight's coverage. CTV's graphics have been tweaked with their current logo type, otherwise it's the same as other election broadcasts on the CTV network. Global Winnipeg appears to have a new set of election graphics (first one in the network to use it, and will most likely be used for the Federal election in a month's time), and they are also utilizing an L-frame ticker, similar to the ones seen on their regional morning newscasts. CBC's has been tweaked, and was used for the CBC's Alberta provincial election results show.

  12. Not looking forward to seeing this on KSWB, if this is being rolled out everywhere.
  13. Here are the first blocks from the 6 PM newscasts from CTV Atlantic and Global Halifax (simulcast on Global New Brunswick), and the 7 PM evening newscast from CBC Nova Scotia (simulcast on CBC NB, PEI, and NL). 0:00 - CTV News Atlantic 16:22 - Global News at 6 Maritimes 28:36 - CBC Atlantic Tonight
  14. I'm a bit disappointed that none of the networks did rolling coverage, like they do in the US. I didn't expect Global to do it considering the resources they have in the region, but I would have expected at least CTV Atlantic to pre-empt some programming to cover Dorian's arrival, or CBC to simulcast CBC News Network.
