  1. Meanwhile in Atlanta, WGCL cuts four. Weekend anchor/reporter Mike Dunston out. Investigative reporter Jonathan Carlson ("The CBS46 Bulldog") out. Reporter Daniel Wilkerson out. And executive producer Phil Landeros out. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/cbs46-cuts-mike-dunston-jonathan-carlson-daniel-wilkerson/hF11f8sZgdCr5vzrCNkD1M/
  2. You mean WDBJ’s graphics. WRLH - owned by Sinclair - is the third station that’s using them (the second is WITN in eastern North Carolina). Gray’s WWBT has a news share agreement with WRLH.
  3. No new graphics for Rockford, IL's WIFR 23 (yet), but they ditched CBS Enforcer for CBS Local just last month. Plus, they're using the new Gray ticker.
  4. Here's the tease and open from today's CBS This Morning from the Ed Sullivan Theater (video via NewscastStudio). https://www.newscaststudio.com/2020/03/19/cbs-this-morning-late-show-set/
  5. WWBT anchor/reporter Heather Sullivan is heading to Fox 26 in Houston. She tweeted this late last month...
  6. Good that both New York's Very Own and Impact aren't going anywhere on WPIX and WTKR/WGNT. Can't picture the new Scripps graphics on those stations, including WTVR here in Richmond (but I can picture a news open for WTVR, though). Speaking of WTVR: Really? I love y'all, but you're still keeping Moving Forward, a package you and now-former sister station WTTV brought back from the dead in 2015? Nothing against Moving Forward (it's a good package, though), but it's 12 years old and it's time for an update.
  7. The current logo was created by a local company. https://matchstic.com/work/11-alive Here's a video on their new "Where Atlanta Speaks" mission statement from earlier this year.
  8. Mancuso used to be the GM at WIVB/WNLO, I think.
  9. Bumping up this thread: Remember I said a while ago that Gray's WWBT is now using the graphics - currently used on WDBJ, WITN and others - and started using 615 Music's Sinclair News Package (the Curves version) on Sinclair's WRLH? Well, I took some pics from my phone and here they are (remember, WRLH doesn't stream their newscasts online). The weather graphics on both WWBT and WRLH, by the way, are currently used on WDTV 5 (CBS) in north-central West Virginia (Morgantown/Clarksburg/Fairmont/Weston). Plus, I forgot to mention the newscasts on WRLH began airing from WWBT's news set a few months ago before the graphics and music switch. Check them out, y'all. (NOTE TO SELF: crop the pics)
  10. That's the theme called "Tuesday2". It was used on KGTV and WAVY. http://www.southernmedia-nmsa.com/#3,1,251
  11. WUSA currently uses Wake Up Washington for weekend mornings. Meanwhile, Tegna and Fox announced a comprehensive, multi-year deal that renews station affiliation agreements for six Tegna markets last week, including three acquired from Nexstar. (via TVNewsCheck) https://tvnewscheck.com/article/240551/tegna-fox-renew-affiliation-agreements/
  12. Worst open? Dude, seriously? MG gave WRIC a fresh new look (FX set, graphics, logo, everything) in 2016 before the Nexstar takeover. Paul Turner became the station's new VO earlier this year. It needed that look.
  13. Alpena has WPBN/WTOM - aka "TV 7 & 4" - on cable (Spectrum).
  14. I mentioned this in the Gray graphics thread: I'm watching the Fox News at 10 on WRLH - produced by WWBT - and they're now using the graphics package that are currently on WDBJ7, WITN and others. I'm not kidding. Gray Television graphics on a Sinclair station. Remember, WWBT has a news-share agreement with WRLH (it started in 1994). Also, Gari's Daily News package is out (FINALLY!!) and 615 Music's The Sinclair News Package (the Curves version) is in! Just a few months ago, WWBT began broadcasting WRLH's newscasts from its news set. Unfortunately, the 10pm and the morning newscast at 7am (Fox Richmond Morning News) doesn't stream on WRLH's website nor WWBT's.
  15. Another station has the new Gray package: WWBT here in Richmond. They're using the graphics that are currently on WMC, WLBT and others (personally, I wish WWBT would use the current graphics on WDBJ or the ones on WHSV). They've started using them on the evening newscasts last night (noticed that on the NewsON app). Music is still The Rock by Stephen Arnold Music, but Inergy continues to survive on sports and some segments. https://www.nbc12.com/live/ UPDATE (10:07PM): Watching the Fox News at 10 on WRLH - produced by WWBT - and they're now using the graphics package that are currently on WDBJ7, WITN and others. Yes, Gray Television graphics on a Sinclair station. Remember, WWBT has a news-share agreement with WRLH (it started in 1994). Also, Gari's Daily News package is out and the Sinclair News Package (the Curves version) is in! Unfortunately, the 10pm and the morning newscast at 7am (Fox Richmond Morning News) doesn't stream on WRLH's website nor WWBT's.
  16. WHSV announced today that the Shenandoah Valley is getting a new NBC/CW dual affiliate. WSVW ("NBC 3 in the Valley"/"CW 3 in the Valley") will launch on December 1st. https://www.whsv.com/content/news/WHSV-announces-launch-of-NBC-and-CW-Plus-affiliations-NBC-3-in-the-Valley-561973051.html
  17. Meanwhile in DC, it's goodbye to "Off Script" and hello to the new interactive show called "The Q & A". WUSA 9 debuted a new show tonight at 7pm. It's called "The Q & A" hosted by Bruce Johnson, Ariane Datil and Mike Wise. https://www.wusa9.com/article/entertainment/television/programs/q-and-a/the-q-and-a-launches-on-wusa9/65-41164c18-3415-42ea-875a-16e0b0287849 EDIT (8:07p): It's on WUSA's section on the NewsOn apps in case you missed it.
  18. From the AJC: Rick Folbaum (formerly of Fox News, WFOR and CNN International) is joining WGCL as an evening anchor replacing the recently departed Thomas Roberts. He will handle the 4, 6, 9 (on sister station WPCH) and 11pm newscasts. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/rick-folbaum-fox-news-cnn-international-new-cbs46-anchor-replacing-thomas-roberts/gm6q3hBrAwDyszgabIn1hO/ Last week, WGCL announced Tracye Hutchins was moving to afternoons and will co-anchor the 5pm show with a rotating set of hosts. Karyn Greer will take over mornings with Gurvir Dhindsa. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/exclusive-cbs46-moves-karyn-greer-mornings-tracye-hutchins-back-afternoons/ASuJUwslF1sAJ37UBuMxMO/
  19. I'm surprised @Weeters or one of the moderators didn't close this thread. Like @Weeters said on one of the threads (I don't remember which one), you never know what Tegna gonna do to the stations they acquire. Whether we like Tegna or not, we have to get used to its style of news. That's it.
  20. From the AJC: WGCL names Shon Gables permanent evening anchor effectively replacing Sharon Reed. The station currently has a second evening position open since Thomas Roberts left. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/cbs46-names-shon-gables-permanent-evening-anchor-effectively-replacing-sharon-reed/e7VG0gzo7D0ZNMbBzrRqSP/
  21. Meanwhile in Central Illinois, WAND has hired Jim Kosek as their new Chief Meteorologist. Yes, THAT Jim Kosek. Formerly of AccuWeather, WGCL, KCTV, KTVX and others. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/8/21/snowpocalypse-weatherman-is-hired https://herald-review.com/entertainment/television/wand-hires-meteorologist-whose-snowpocalypse-forecast-went-viral/article_8150991c-c724-5e14-8d21-e787430c176a.html
  22. The first few minutes of WSVI's (US Virgin Islands) newscast from August 2017 with WDIV's current news theme.
  23. Meanwhile in Hampton Roads, there are two departures: weekend morning meteorologist Crystal Harper is leaving WVEC this coming Sunday and traffic reporter Kristen Crowley is leaving WTKR next week. https://pilotonline.com/entertainment/tv/larry-bonko/article_ee5ef4a0-bed7-11e9-a8fb-2f1f2bde9061.html
  24. To Long Island, NY: A promo for WLIG's (now WLNY) then-new newscast from 1985. The theme is a DeWolfe Music production track called "Newsweek" (the NMSA listed it as the "WLIG 1986 News Theme") . How did I know this, you ask? I was bored and I was just listening to some tracks from DeWolfe's site. WWBT here in Richmond, VA also used it in the early 1980s for their newscasts.
  25. A full WYOU 11pm newscast from May 29th, 1998. This was the last newscast from Scranton before they moved to WBRE's studios in Wilkes-Barre.
