    The "3" Thread

    Stay tuned....they're still trying.
  2. I saw them debut but didn't say anything cause didn't think it was a big deal. Nothing special. lol. The voiceover on some of their opens is very weirdly voiced. Kinda rushed or something.
  3. I didn't realize it was a thing to put main anchors on Sundays until I saw KPTV start doing it a few years ago. It's not the entire team, but it's a weekday anchor paired with weekend anchor plus their main meteorologist. I think it probably a smart idea if more people watch on Sundays than Fridays. I wonder how the talent feel about it though?? Because aside from the talent, it's not like the rest of the newsroom is staffed up to weekday-like levels.
  4. It seems to me that the new Nexstar copyright has a transition that animates onto the screen, compared to the old version that seemed to be a plain video clip.
  5. I tried to pay close attention today to see if any promos aired or mentions were made in newscasts or KOIN social media about the 10pm show and I saw nothing. The show uses the regular KOIN bug, not anything involving CW logo the way that KGW did. The only mention was at the end of the 10pm show. Anchor Jeff Gianola said something to the effect of "thanks for watching us at 10 on the CW, see you at 11pm." KRCW is a shell of a station. Almost no one works there. (Hence the website not being updated.) Their physical building is basically just a routing point for their signal. I'm guessing less than 10 people, work there if that. Maybe 5ish? A few in sales and a couple others. The programming is played out of Seattle (KCPQ), and some sort of master control is involved in Virginia, before the signal is sent back to the KRCW building to be sent to the transmitter.
  6. If it is a LED wall, what a shame. I would have much preferred them use a seamless wall for their main monitors instead of having a 9 unit array with lines. I assume seamless costs more....
  7. KOIN had their first 10pm show on KRCW tonight. Very weird to see it be KGW one day and KOIN the next. Especially after KGW had been doing it since the early 2000s. I'm seeing viewers post on Twitter and Facebook their confusion. lol!
  8. Maybe this was common knowledge about Nexstar but I had no idea FX was behind this set.
  9. I think there are at least several current Tegna stations that don't use/have the Tegna ID at all except for when it plays during DBL.
  10. KGW staff knew this day would be coming....A friend told me the official announcement was made today that Wednesday would be the last KGW broadcast on Portlands CW. Said the contract between KRCW (Tribune) and KGW required KRCW to give at least several weeks notice before ending the show. But apparently KGW was ready and willing to give it up much sooner. Idk if KOIN will take over on Thursday, but my guess would be yes. They have ramped up production of a 10pm show by streaming one online at 10pm over the past month or 2. I imagine it's now just a technical issue of whether KOIN has a solid way to transmit a feed to KRCW's broadcast path. Maybe they prepped for that already and are good to go...??
  11. What's up with the mics on the desk on France 3?
  12. Does anybody know how this works? Do they use digital impressions to sell TV ads or is there some sort of TV specific "impressions" measurement?
  13. Reporters and photogs take video and pictures at the same time as the professional camera so that they can instantly post content to social media.
  14. I didn't realize at first but the wall behind the desk with the skyline actually changes and seems to be able to show video/etc. I'm curious of anyone knows what type of display technology that is for such a large display? Low resolution LED, rear projection...?? I'm guessing they artificially blur whatever they put in there, but otherwise it looks like a fairly crisp type of display.
