  1. I thought the content was good but there needs to be some more chemistry.
  2. They don’t produce or own PA Newsmakers, you can see their website here and they have an extensive underwriter population. Its produced / recorded at JPL Integrated Communications and has a copyright Newsmaker Productions. So it sounds like Hearst’s bit is solely their carriage. WGAL Channel 8 (Harrisburg and Lancaster): Sundays at 11:30 AM WBPH (Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia): Mondays at 8:30 PM WKBS 47 (Altoona): Saturdays at 9:30 AM WPCB 40 (Pittsburgh): Saturdays at 9:30 AM MeTV (Susquehanna Valley): Sundays at 10:30 PM
  3. Should be mentioned I’ve seen this NECN logo in use for about a year for about at various promotional events/staff events. Sometimes they use a horizontal version with the same font two years ago.
  4. Where the two peoples names appear. It just reminded me of how MSNBC’s graphics packages have two boxed lines of different color.
  5. Looks like NECN got new graphics... the name straps look like the old msnbc graphics. Like to see if this is the next look as NBC Arthouse launches every Summer Olympics. The look appears to be a flat evolution of Look N.
  6. Here are some more photos that I’m surprised we didn’t catch showing all the other studios from Friday. https://www.bizjournals.com/boston/news/2020/01/16/tour-nbcuniversals-125m-boston-media-center.html#g/466052/1 Thanks, maybe I misjudged when I saw a feed to encompass listed on a multiviewer along with cut in phone numbers. Previously with Encompass they were in the central-casting from what I understand as opposed to a hub and spoke model you mentioned. Although Comcast has enough bandwidth in the area, to and from it wouldn’t surprise me if they were doing just that. Especially given they’re setting up some smaller Telemundo’s with almost complete remote production where the cameras and everything are sent to KXAS’ datacenter complete with the switcher’s crate, multiviewers and all are sent back to the station where someone is either punching the show or running overdrive.
  7. Here’s NECN’s insta story with some more views. I really like the LED wall that’s showing bricks with the sliding monitor in addition to the one movable wall. https://imgur.com/a/do0QgLd
  8. Here’s NECN’s set, I like it. A little more creative that WBTS and WNEU.
  9. Here’s a tour:. I imagine they’ll have roll in elements and the walls will add versatility. NBC 10, Telemundo NI and NECN each have one studio. NBC Sports Boston has two. And the sixth is for special projects or when I imagine there’s a set to be replaced.
  10. I doubt it as everything is processed in at the Comcast Media Center in Centennial, CO straight to the transmitters/headends. I don’t think regular network programming passes through the station unless they want to run a custom ticker or something. I did however notice some audio problems with their online stream when WNEU launched and it seemed like today an ad was missing some audio on the WBTS stream as well.
  11. The only thing I can think of are WBBM’s ratings woes. WCBS is a stronger station than WBBM.
  12. One thing I’m surprised about is that there seems to be no weather pods given how much they emphasized weather coverage. I guess they have a roll on pod on set for extended coverage. Here WNEU has some AR for weather. Also it appears they installed Sony cameras, as many of NBC O&Os have been changing over to Grass Valley - including WCAU/WWSI. I assume the new plant is IP based on 2110.
  13. Like WABC’s News York microtext.
  14. They are keeping their helicopter, Jason just retired.
