  1. I think they enlarge the abc logo because when when it’s reduced down in size to be a small bug on the screen in the lower right it will reproduce better. The design still looks crappy though.
  2. Trying to not get off topic... but I think Hearst should concentrate on a groupwide clean-up/redesign of these station logos; they are starting to look tired or dated: KHBS, KSBW, WPBF, KCCI, WLKY, WLWT and WGAL.
  3. It is MUCH better, but their first mistake was not knocking down those cubicles in the corner and allowing for things to look less crowded. I'm sure space might be at a premium, but those cubes don't look like they're used by a whole bunch of people. Those high walled workstations could've been replaced with lower walled ones and incorporated into the set somehow as a working newsroom.... if that's what those cubes are used for.
  4. I figured it would only be a matter of time.
  5. I'll give it six more months or so. If it hasn't picked up any sizable traction by Septemberish, it might be gone a month or two after that. And with COVID restrictions probably loosening up even more by summer, people are going to want to do other things instead of sitting at home & watching TV. Especially news... and especially a new news network with a weak lineup... in a slow news cycle.
  6. Ho hum.... More of the decades-long status quo out of Sactown. I'm surprised that any of the other stations in town still do news. https://www.kcra.com/article/kcra-3-dominates-february-sweeps-in-sacramento-2021/35747618
  7. Just some observations... Looks like KSDK & KMOV are done with N6TY & their chopper agreement: https://www.stltoday.com/news/local/columns/joe-holleman/ksdk-kmov-shut-down-shared-helicopter/article_ee39336a-5bee-5642-a348-13fe27a0ba44.html KCRA Sacramento has been using N75TV for a little bit.
  8. Vintage sales film for KCOP touring their facility @ 915 N. La Brea in the early 1960s. Hosted by former anchor and 'General Hospital' alum Peter Hansen.
  9. The name should just be changed to ‘The Done & Gone Report.’ There’s no way this will survive.
  10. OSHA violation of the day right there!
  11. Plain & simple, NewsNation is late to the ballgame. There's no Presidential campaign/election going on, no Trump Twittering in the White House, no real salacious stories going on right now, etc. It's going to be hard for them to get any traction to build viewership in this slowing news cycle right now. The average viewer just has no reason to make it 'appointment viewing'. The news market is already saturated as it is. And offering up a four hour old newscast for those of us on the west coast? Um... no. Nexstar should've taken WGN in a totally different direction other than news....
  12. There's no other way to put this, but the NFL must be smoking the crack rock if they want a 100% rights fee increase. I'm sure it's probably just a negotiating ploy, but this past Super Bowl had the lowest ratings since 2007. 2020 regular season ratings have declined 7% according to Nielsen. Crappy ratings like that don't justify a rights increase at all. I could see an increase like that maybe thirty years ago, but not the way the TV business is today. I think we're going to see a serious shuffling of how major league sports is delivered to the viewer in the next 5-10 years. Sounds to m
  13. I have to wonder how much of his on air persona was just a character he played on the radio; similar to 'The Colbert Report' on Comedy Central. Love him or hate him, he was an astute personality and successful businessman. I would not be surprised if he truly didn't agree with some things he said on air, but would just say it to get people to tune in. More ears equal more dollars.
  14. It's not just the set.... which looks like the inside of a raspberry blue Slurpee machine at 7-11. I started taking a look at GMA again recently after not watching it for decades. I kid you not... let's just say the last time I really watched was the Hartman/Gibson/Lunden eras. Yup, call me Rip Van Winkle; I'm that old. Hey, I was busy at work putting food on the table and a roof over my head. I've recently had some time away from work and decided to take a peek. The program nowadays is an unwatchable trainwreck of show stacking, plus a 2 hour Disney Corporation infomercial.
  15. KCRA 1985... Where The Karaoke Comes First. Somebody needs to tell them this whole "Singing Machine" fad will never catch on! Good to see the old KCRA neon lit up @ 3:31. It needs to be restored and moved to the front of the building.
