  1. I like it. Looks like there isn’t a standardized open this time around. The new stingers looked slick too.
  2. No way that's going to last long term. Moving the show to DC was clearly all about Norah.
  3. I think it maybe wouldn't look so bad had they not picked such a dull shade of blue. Something a little brighter would probably make it look less pedestrian.
  4. KRON switched to a primetime 8-11pm block as well a little more than a year ago, and it appears to be doing well. They're still far behind KTVU at 10pm, but some people are watching.
  5. I actually thought that the Scripps look matched KMGH pretty well initially. The blue and yellow reminded me of the previous early 2000s looks, and the Hothaus graphics were looking pretty tired and mutilated by the time they were replaced. The only thing that's been weird about it on KMGH is that they used the house style open literally one time the day the graphics launched and then went back to doing a hodgepodge of cold opens, no opens, and whatever collage of stock video and music they use to open newscasts now. The new graphics look uninspired, but we'll have to see how the rollout goes. Maybe there's more to see than just what's gone out on WTXL.
  6. KMGH seems like an odd choice. Also, not sure I'd keep KIRO that high knowing that it, along with all the Cox stations, still face an uncertain future. It's also worth pointing out that these are all big market stations. There are plenty of great small market stations to work for...if you can land an anchor or manager role.
  7. Here's a better look at it. It makes a lot more sense and looks cooler if you realize that it's more of an animation treatment of the Fox logo. https://trollback.com/projects/fox-entertainment/
  8. A new graphics package is coming. I've heard it looks a lot like what we've already seen with the new elements that have shown up on WNYW. It's all what you'd expect: flat with lots of wiping transitions. I believe there will be a blue and gold version in addition to the blue and red. I don't know anything about the kitebox logos being phased out. They at least will not be in the bug in the new graphics. The kitebox has certainly been de-emphasized overall, though on the other hand, the kitebox logos are on the headers of the web platform that rolled out in the last two months.
  9. I know there were also plans to move KMTR to KVAL's facility on KVAL hill on the south end of Eugene. As far as I can tell, KMTR is still in its building in Springfield.
  10. That's the 20-year-old MAGA hat anchor guy too. With his luck, he'll be able to land a correspondent gig at OANN before you know it...
  11. Losing people like Shep does also undermine the opinion side....Roger Ailes was genius enough that he knew he needed at least some legitimate journalists like Shep and Chris Wallace in order to justify calling the whole operation a news department.
  12. Shepard Smith is leaving Fox News after 23 years. He announced at the end of today's show that it would be his last. Wow! https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/shepard-smith-leaving-fox-news-1247097
  13. I hear that a new look is coming soon, and yes, it draws a lot from what we've already seen with the new WNYW opens.
  14. Though if Bob Prather is going to now be running the show at Byron Allen's company, then it shouldn't be much of a change at all for the Heartland stations. Though they're still probably jockeying toward the ultimate goal of selling them all to Gray or another one of the big station groups.
