Station Group CEO

Station Group CEO (8/8)



  1. Hmm 360° track like BBC isn't really something that's ever been done before in the US, is it? On the surface it would be very unique (especially if it was used for local news - hypothetically). I still miss that Rock Center studio.
  2. Here's hoping it's more inspired than thing at KXTV.
  3. It's remarkably basic. It's safe and restrained. Very sterile.
  4. It looks like a giant improvement over the old digs.
  5. Some of you have impossibly high standards lol. It really isn't a bad look at all. I like the cool feeling of it, it's almost like a relief from the heat and humidity of the south. What I will say is that it seems very bottom heavy with lighting. The top third is noticeably darker than the bottom third and the shadows seem a lot more pronounced. Small accent lighting could've helped add depth.
  6. They said the quiet part out loud. Surprised this didn't get posted, but Deb McDermott sent a letter to all of Tegna saying no jobs would be cut. In the article they went on to say Like, that's fine and all and I'm glad to see it, but how does that really benefit Jane and John Doe living in Nowhereville, USA? Great! This mega-media company is ran by minorities and women. How does that help them when it comes to local news?
  7. It's still a fairly dark set, but talent does pop better. That desk feels crammed into that corner, but maybe that's because the metal logo is so huge. I still feel that stair case corner is wasted potential - thrown in because they didn't know what to do there. It's mysteriously dark.
  8. I love cake, but all these recent departures has made me tired of them. Last goodbye cake we had was barely touched.
  9. Seems like The Tank or stations has been given some creative runway lately, but I don't understand why there need to be special supers just for talent.
  10. Who starts a timelapse when the thing is 90% built and they're only making final adjustments? Anyway, it looks good given what a small space they have. Crazy to me that the green screen is hidden behind a sliding wall.
  11. Way too much dead space in that 7-day. Too much emphasis on the accessory text and not enough on the actual temperatures. Either all of those boxes should be filled all the time or made much smaller. The eye is drawn to the emptiness.
  12. Goodness, there are college operations that have a better presentation.
  13. As others have said, many stations have really let up on the idea of sweeps, but the more old-fashioned, traditional NDs/GMs (some who really aren't that old!) hold fast to it. I know of a shop whose GM bans vacation in the one or two weeks before, during, and after sweeps.
  14. Easy. Budget. Stations only get so much money every year, and there's a queue for big projects like that.
  15. His post says Lexington his home and he's coming back again for a second stint. He's probably buying.
