  1. He is great on $100,000 Pyramid I must say. But I do agree with y'all, I still find it odd that they passed up on other qualified ABC News anchors for Michael. Disney loves Strahan and they possibly feel like he brings the "it" factor, but I've always speculated that adding a more masculine personality (Strahan, Josh Elliott, Jesse Palmer, and even Tony Reali) was always a band-aid to counter Stephanopoulos' stiffness during lighter, fluffier flare. I do wonder what GMA's longterm plans are. Will GMA3 still be in the cards? Roberts and Stephanopoulos aren't exactly ancient and the audience seems to like this team for the most part, unless ratings slide or the competition gets fierce, I can see this team staying for another 5-10 years tops.
  2. I'm surprised they kept the bug white, the logo and time/temp gets easily hidden when the video or picture playing behind it is also white...kinda defeats the purpose of having a bug. Too much slow animation happening on the L3's, they're trying to grab the viewer's attention but it just feels like the movement is lagging. Dang, Scripps should have gotten TVNewsTalk's community to be their focus group, we can certainly come up with something better than this.
  3. Those graphics were alright even though they were pretty much copying CNN's at the time; they were certainly an upgrade to the Hothaus design that McGraw-Hill stations had when they standardized, those were ugly.
  4. Too much blue I say, looks like if TEGNA and NBC O&O graphics screwed around and made a baby, this is what the baby would look like. A little bland and boring, but I guess this is what standardization looks like. Maybe the transitions, sound effects and music will make up for it....or maybe not.
  5. I surely do miss the Jennings era when they actually had WORLD NEWS for the majority of the newscast. Unfortunately overall news distribution has degraded to viral video analysis, online shopping discount notifications, and too much fluff pieces. At this point, they might as well call it GMA: After Dark.
  6. Could be but GMA graphics are playing on outdoor signage, so it may actually be early morning if she's making the affiliate "coming up next on GMA" segments before the show starts on the East Coast.
  7. Very interesting. I wonder what the context of the dialogue was? Looks like she's on a GMA set, could be weekday or weekend. Seems like she was talking with a group, possibly journalism interns or close GMA colleagues? Odd that she would talk about this in front of cameras and on the set with a mic. I sense her frustration, especially since this became an important story to tell and things were lining up. Sad that ABC News laid over this story but are we really that surprised? The Royals, Hilary running in the 2016 elections...this was going to be a complex story on all sides.
  8. I'm curious to know where here career will take her and if she plans leave the industry. After the blackface incident, she is now damaged goods, I think she knows she has burned bridges and no mainstream media organization will take her. Logically, her place will be back at a conservative media organization like Fox News, Pat Robertson's CBN or maybe even that new Viacom/Pluto TV channel called First.
  9. Fair question, it shouldn't matter. The only people that would be concerned are the NBC affiliates that air her show, but aren't they contracted to air her show regardless of content? If that is real and she does get the interview, it will be a big get. It will certainly help her and the show. Until today's social media post, Lauer has been on stealth mode, it would be good to get his side of the story.
  10. The 11pm news also is back it seems, how many times has it returned in last few years 3 or 4 times now? I'm curious to know what the 4:30 am show is. The more pressing question is where is Aloha Taylor, she's been gone for too long.
  11. I'm somewhat suspicious about what people who worked with Lauer "knew" about him. I feel like a lot of them are not saying what they actually knew and are hiding under this blanket of cluelessness in the public eye in order to keep their career and reputation. There's been open jokes and roasts touting Lauer's womanizing ways before the #MeToo movement when this behavior was sectioned off as okay for white men with power.
  12. Down here in San Diego, XETV did this when they restarted their newscast back at the beginning of the new millennium. KGTV also did this for a couple years during sweeps periods when people actually tuned in for ABC Sunday primetime programming consisting of ratings juggernauts Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Grey's Anatomy.
  13. GMA has had an easier time celebrating their history compared to the Today show, who have erased the likes of Matt Lauer and Ann Curry from their memory. I remember during their 40th anniversary when they invited all their on-air talent back, GMA even brought back Kevin Newman, Lisa McRee and even Josh Elliott came back, seems like there's no bad blood . 2000s GMA was pretty much my preferred version of the show, it had the right balance of substance and morning show flare. For me, Time Square Studio's prime location is the 2nd floor and it's unfortunate that they don't take advantage of the Time Square view that often as they did in the early 2000s, I always preferred that they started the first hour upstairs and went down to hangout with the public on the ground level during the 2nd hour. Also, I know it's a budgetary issue, but I always thought it was silly when they moved the weekend edition, 20/20, Nightline and Primetime away from Time Square since the facility is owned by Disney; it's simply aesthetics, but it definitely made the newsmagazines come alive when they were on location, it just simply illuminated the live aspect that you simply don't feel when they are in the Upper West Side in a closed studio. Do you guys think GMA will leave Times Square when construction for the new ABC HQ in Hudson Square is completed?
  14. I am glad everyone is fine as well! I too wonder what will happen now, how soon can they get another chopper? Or are we just going to see more drones in the sky?
  15. Yes, the ad dollars coming from these questionable for-profit colleges that places many graduates more in debt and causes more financial and economic strain for our country? Yes, this is America, land of on-air paternity tests!
