  1. I can confirm that all NBC Hearst stations are supposed to be getting this look by the time the Olympics get underway.
  2. WROC-TV, Channel 8, in Rochester, NY has just announced that they will be going HD, according to their facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/News8WROC The Nexstar CBS affiliate is the second tv news station in Rochester to go HD. The first was ABC affiliate WHAM back in September of 2010. I have to say that I didn't quite expect them to announce this first, although a lot of Nexstar stations have been making the move as of late. I more expected WHEC, Channel 10, to announce this since they have been giving hints of a makeover and possible HD makeover. This video posted on one of the station's anchor/reporter facebook pages shows that they've already dismantled the set. They also say it will take a few weeks. ( ) Looking forward to see how extensive the makeover is... in my opinion, their set is the worst of the affiliates in Rochester (besides WUHF which is produced by WROC anyway). This is really needed for them. It will definitely shake things up a bit. Maybe 13 will quit harping on the fact that they're "now in high definition" like what is said in the voice over of each show open (even though they went HD almost 2 years ago). Here is a fairly up-to-date example of what their current set (or at least the set they had before they went to a temp. set) looks like:
  3. I know I posted this earlier in the summer... but it was never added to the HD list, so I figured I would say it again. WHAM-TV in Rochester, NY is debuting in HD on Monday, September 13. They fully redesigned their set, have new graphics all around, updated logo, and many other updates. Here is an article on their website about it with a few pictures of the completed set: http://www.13wham.com/news/local/story/13WHAM-Goes-HD/kwXwOn_yNUCMl4bjbXZbXA.cspx
  4. Well, 13 WHAM has announced that they are in fact going HD. They announced it via their website and also through a local newspaper article (in the Democrat and Chronicle). Here are the links to the articles: http://www.13wham.com/content/blogs/story/Hi-Def-Local-News-Is-Coming-to-13WHAM/b5lrIp2xDE2gG7hDXdWHBg.cspx http://www.democratandchronicle.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=20107110347 If I am not mistaken, WHAM will become the first affiliate station in Western NY to go HD (Cable channel YNN in Buffalo went HD earlier this year). The closest any affiliate in either Buffalo, Rochester, or Syracuse has been to HD is when WGRZ adapted the standardized gannett package and started broadcasting in 16:9 Standard Definition. I have to admit, I'm pretty stoked
  5. Oh... I stand corrected. Those are mostly the ones I've looked at so I guess I assumed the rest were too.
  6. Oh wow, that's surprising especially considering how almost all Gannett stations are now HD.
  7. Here's a promo that was used by many stations in the 70s... This is WHAM's version. Not that I was alive back then, but it's pretty catchy haha.
  8. WHAM in Rochester, NY could be going HD... They just started a renovation project on their studio, and when one of the main reporters was asked on facebook whether or not they'd be going HD, she gave off pretty clear hints that they would in fact be going HD. Here's a link to the blog that announces they are getting a revamp or new look... whatever you want to call it lol: http://www.13wham.com/content/blogs/story/Back-To-The-Future-Again/8DmxLPTBmkemEAGobb2H5Q.cspx This would also be the first HD news station in Rochester, and I believe only the 2nd in Western NY (I think WGRZ (Gannett Station) in Buffalo is already in HD).
