  1. This right here... smartest thing anyone has said on this site in a very long time. The ONLY reason you all are clamoring for a sale relates to graphics, music and set designs which is just idiotic. There's a reason Gray isn't doing layoffs or furloughs and it isn't just "kindness". And if you think TEGNA is the only group that will be doing this you're absolutely wrong.
  2. How is this "Tegna-itis"? A lot of TEGNA stations have a traffic reporter. The fact that WTHR dropped theirs obviously was a local decision. It's a rare example of local media evolving and re-thinking dated concepts.
  3. Can we keep the childish bragging about "inside" info to a minimum? No one cares. You should also be careful not to burn your sources by running your mouth about this stuff. They trust you with this info, you should respect that.
  4. You're misinterpreting the story.
  5. The price of seamless LED walls has dropped so dramatically the past few years, it's foolish to build a set with monitor walls like this - you're already building a set that will look dated. Outside of that, it's pretty traditional, but it's not bad.
  6. Yeah - this set's perfectly fine. The criticism is baseless and childish.
  7. VERY good if this was 2010. It's not bad, but it's not exactly following any recent motion design / industry trends.
  8. THANK YOU. This site absolutely needs more common sense posts like this. When WFXT starts having layoffs, then feel free to drum up some more bullshit speculation.
  9. It sounds more like something from inthegroove to be honest. Listen closely to it and some of the Hearst themes... Also -- to all the kids here talking about WFXT folding there is no emoticon of an eye roll big enough to use here...
  10. For any of those graphic wizards lurking around on this forum who think they can do a better job than anyone else already in the business, you now have the chance to play a key role at the hub in Denver. Get those reels updated!
  11. I think it looks great on WESH where it was launched and it was a major improvement over what most Hearst stations had at the time, but it's not great for a group package. It's also way off-brand for a lot of stations that use it. The Hearst station I was at when it launched has since gone all in on this thing and every story has some sort of graphic animation leading into it, a fullscreen, half screen, lower, whatever... it's overkill. Way too flashy, way too much going on. Graphics for the sake of graphics, in some cases masking a weak news product. It's honestly hard to watch.
  12. You're right -- I think that's the biggest thing they can do to update their look, take some of the templates to 16:9. Lower thirds could be updated as well, shove the bug further out. I think this is something a lot of stations really need to accomplish in 2017. It's time. My last station did research on this before making the switch to 16:9 graphics and did not receive a single complaint after the launch. edit: And take the station bug off that ugly parallelogram chip! It hurts more than it helps.
