  1. Finally. They usually had garbage and 12:30 so I am happy they finally fixed it.
  2. I wish this was the WBTV package (with Teal instead of Orange, tbh) This is probably one of the BEST packages I have seen in a while! The other Gray gfx (besides 'OIO) is not as good.
  3. I know I am among the minority, but I love it. I feel like it is TEGNA done correctly. It is clean, slick, and I really like the music. I think with a few tweaks per market for edgier cuts, I think that will make it pop for larger markets. The music actually reminds me of 360 from KLAS.
  4. Best case scenario. I think having WJZY/WMYT having that synergy with WGHP will be great for both stations, and even for the region (WNCN, WGHP, WFXR, WSPA). I'm actually a Nexstar fan, so I am much happier with Nexstar gobbling up our affiliates here than keeping them as O&Os. WJZY has barely made a dent in the ratings here. WSOC and WBTV are the giants of Charlotte. Honestly, FOX was taking a real risk creating a news operation from scratch, and from watching a total of 10 minutes of their newscasts since 2013, it just wasn't clicking. Hopefully Nexstar can clean the station up, or (in my best case scenario) possibly outsource their newscast again.
  5. Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe it has something to do with ratings. If they start a few mins earlier, they can maximize their ratings for that hour or something similar to that.
  6. This is much better than the WBTV open IMO.
  7. Good - Because Ch9 EWN hasn't been the same since she left. (I still watch it over everything else though.)
  8. The commercials were saying on WJZY at 1.
  9. No, she is on Summer hiatus. She will be back 9/16.
  10. I love the new set also. I think it fits WGHP's Hometown feel. They have always been the local hometown station, and the set gives that vibe, IMO. The graphics, I agree with MichiganNewsGraphicsJunkie. This is probably my favorite Tribune package!
  11. Watching it over Livestream - Can't see much of the set, but the graphics, are pretty nice. It looks somewhat in-house. Definitely a nice upgrade.
  12. Uh oh - Maybe finally WGHP will upgrade their "interesting" graphics also! See Brad Jones's Facebook Post
  13. Yes, I think that is what I mean. It looks unfinished and its awkward animations and pauses. I am wondering if the larger markets are getting a more "pizzazz" package, while smaller markets, something lesser. But, it doesn't surprise me with Gray. I always thought the WRDW graphics were awkward and horrendously bland also.
  14. So, I have been trying to put my finger on it. I love the WOIO graphics, I think they are great. But WMC, KLTV, KTRE gfx, are not as good to me. I feel like the graphics are dull, and don't necessarily entice me to watch the newscasts. I know it sounds really insignificant, or petty. I think I was just expecting so much MORE in these new Gray graphics.
  15. I was thinking the same - I wonder if the WBTV package would be similar to the WOIO package?
  16. I watched this a few weeks ago. VERY VERY interesting. I never realized all of the pieces of UPN. I know, as a black community, we watched UPN all the time, and was kind of distraught when the network disappeared. I always thought UPN was consistently the 6th place network, but apparently, it traded spots with WB (and sometimes FOX). Make sure if you watch this, you block out like a good hour and some change to watch! Hopefully he will do the WB at some point.
  17. That explained everything EXTREMELY well. It now makes sense! I would've never put it all together. I just remember seeing the decline of 3D, never thought about the relation with Apple!
  18. Just caught it on WSOC. All 7,000 names they read in 3 minutes! Lol
  19. I just saw that a few min ago posted on their fb. I actually like it much better than the previous wx graphics.
  20. https://wjla.com/news/nation-world/meteorologist-fired-after-on-air-racial-slur-leads-to-outcry?fbclid=IwAR3brw-Nl7yQOT8gJWZk0rGB7xcZO12IXFugOorXT2XOG3fCPLo6kyQfuoE WHEC Meteorologist let go for using a Racial Slur on air.
  21. Yes, I noticed some little changes on WSOC, like they have Erica and Scott on 5-630, 10, and 11, and Allison is basically a reporter now, changed the backdrop of the set, and Paul Boyd (yuck) reporting in the morning. It is definitely becoming a mess at 9, hopefully Cox will move that ND soon.
  22. Yes, Lake WAVY is definitely prone for flooding, literally, every time it rained in Portsmouth, it was flooded when I lived there, especially near WAVY.
  23. Gotta love the play on the call letters. WDBJ and WZBJ. Haha I love it.
  24. Haha, I laughed so hard hearing Chroma Cues, and was low key happy to see they kept a little nostalgia.
  25. I was a neilsen family for almost 2 years. They gave me a little meter, that I had to wear everywhere. They paid me 30-90 dollars a month that, and we pretty neat.
