  1. Looks pretty cheap - I guess it's the least important of the O&Os, but the monitor array on the left side of the set looks 10 years out of date.
  2. It looks like they're still using the Look F geographic map wipes (e.g. "Manhattan", "New Jersey"), but the package is so iterative that I suppose they still match. Overall looks great, lovely animations and typography. Glad to be rid of the grey bar on the bottom of Look F!
  3. For something that debuted in 2007, it aged really really well - I'm honestly surprised they've completely cleared it out rather than rework what was there.
  4. Natalie Pasquarella is anchoring the 7pm newscast, not sure if it’ll be rotating or not.
  5. It looks like they’re using the new ABC logo in the open, and then immediately stand before the old version on the screen in the studio.
  6. Ah that's great news - I think it's smart of WNBC to focus on expanding into hours of news coverage currently neglected by the rest of the market (11am, 7pm) etc. Now to just get rid of New York Live...
  7. Has anyone noticed a shift in the editorial tone at WABC recently? It might just be for sweeps, but coverage of things like crime or city nuisances seems much less neutral and much more tabloid than they had been previously. For instance, a report by Lucy Yang tonight on subway crime was much more forceful and scathing in attributing it to bail reform than I would have expected from WABC, nearly FOX-like in tone. The following report on a dirt bike crash referred to the familiar city nuisance as a “scourge”. I don’t think these examples are bad journalism or even ethically fraught, bu
  8. No, current CDC guidance allows vaccinated people from different households to be unmasked indoors: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/fully-vaccinated.html Obviously the circumstances of a workplace will be different, so it is good that stations are acting cautiously rather than moving too fast.
  9. I suspect that much of the distancing on screen hasn't necessarily been for actual risk minimization, but public service "modeling" behavior for viewers, which I don't necessarily think is a bad thing! I wouldn't be surprised if things gradually come back to normal soon.
  10. Honestly fairly surprised by MSNBC becoming the top network!
  11. I wonder if that 3D embossed CBS logo on the new duratrans is a reflection of where the O&O graphics look is headed?
  12. Colorbars on WCBS 2.4, I wish it would be something more valuable like CBSN or CBSN New York...even a simulcast of WLNY would be useful since it's not available OTA in the five boroughs.
  13. I'm not a huge fan of the tweaks - I thought the initial wood version of the set was nice and contemporary feeling, with a slight midcentury vibe. This red white and blue hi-tech look kind of reminds me of CBS's current evening news look, which I do like, but I'm not sure this works as well.
  14. Is he going to take over the 11am from David?
  15. I'd hazard that there are a fair amount of under-the-hood upgrades that we might not notice but take a while to implement?
