  1. It’s bad... and what makes it even worse is that huge space & line between the call letters and the abc logo. It kind of shouts out... “Yup... we are an abc affiliate, but we try to distance ourselves from them.” Lol!
  2. Rare outtakes and raw footage with Leslie Nielsen for the classic KTXL TV40 Sacramento "Beyond the Nut Tree" promos. The two finished versions:
  3. I don't think CBS affiliates would go for an already floundering network newscast @ 10pm leading into their local news @ 10:30 or 11. I hope you all remember the 10pm "Jay Leno Show" debacle years ago. If full on production of primetime gets to be a problem, give the affiliates the 10pm slot for local news and run the revamped "CBS News Tonight @ 10:30" (or whatever they want to call it & anchored by someone besides Norah) and then the "Late Show w/Colbert" at 11. That also gives Colbert a jump start on Fallon & Kimmel. Overall, it's gonna be a tough sell for Viacom/CBS to give up an hour of primetime $$$$$$ @ 10 for this kind of experiment.
  4. Add to that list former KCRA/KQCA Sacramento & KCPQ Seattle owner Jon Kelly of the now defunct Kelly Broadcasting Company. We are losing the pioneers of local TV. Not a good weekend at all. https://www.kcra.com/article/former-kcra-3-owner-jon-kelly-dead-at-84/33423844
  5. I liked it at first, but now that I come back & look at it... it has a somber, almost funeral-like look to it. The black, especially with that Coronavirus graphic, really accentuates that tone. Looks depressing. I also think it will look awkward for a morning newscast.
  6. It’s been my opinion that in situations like these the FCC should take action and fine the offender. Hunt the guy down, fine him $100,000... If he can’t pay, garnish his wages and collect any IRS refunds he has coming for the rest of his life until it’s paid in full.
  7. CBS still does a newscast every night? I thought that stopped when Cronkite retired!
  8. I don't see this WFH option becoming the norm. IMHO, every day that this WFH thing drags on, it makes the anchors and reporters look less and less like a cohesive news team. People reporting live from their living room/bedroom/basement makes it look like they don't even go out to do a story. I can maybe see reporters working from home in the future-- but no more live shots from the house.... it looks silly.
  9. I noticed today during NBC daytime that they don't have them, but some affiliates are still rocking them in their bugs during regular programming & news. Anybody know if NBC has offered any instructions to affiliates to dump them and bring them back in January 2021? Just curious. I couldn't see stations hanging onto them for the next year and a half. Seems like overkill.
  10. IMHO here's what I have noticed about Norah from the very beginning: She doesn't smile enough. The old adage goes, "It's not what you say, but how you say it." I'm not saying she needs to smile while delivering sad stories and the like, (this is gonna hurt and will sound cruel, not trying to be sexist, but I need to be honest) ....but she needs to lose the RBF. If you don't know what RBF is.... google it. She's a very good looking woman, but I don't think her expressions while delivering serious stories are very inviting. It's almost like she has a scowl on her face. There are plenty of female anchors out there who can deliver a heavy story without looking into the camera like you spilled purple grape juice on their new white couch. Norah is not one of them.

    The "3" Thread

    I keep pushing the new 3 logo in this darn elevator to get WKYC on the screen and nothing happens! Lol!
  12. Glad to see in Shanahan’s tweet that they are losing the oddball searchlight letter “X” in the FOX part of the logo.... it never looked quite right, especially when the logo was shrunken down:
  13. Today the favorite icon on my phone changed by itself to this version today, interesting;
  14. Noticed that KOVR’s logo has been changed from blue to all gold (including the CBS eye) on their video player. None of the other O&Os are like this. Change coming?
  15. Hmmmm... that logo.... who in the hell gave the final approval on that disaster? Stevie Wonder could come up with a better design!
