  1. People are failing to realize this is intended to be a very niche operation looking to serve highly under-covered communities and demographics or communities/demographics that are often portrayed in a negative light by the existing networks. If you're a minority, hearing there's a planned news network whose goal is to exclusively cover minorities like you and bring attention to things that are often overlooked is pretty exciting. Yes, it'll be hard to get up and going and keep going, but the fact the effort is being made at all is commendable. The U.S. has a huge history of minority news opera
  2. There are also many stations that simply do not care about COVID safety precautions.
  3. Did WNT just update their open? looks different, but I haven't seen their open in quite a while.
  4. That new WAVE look gives me serious WPTV 2008-9 vibes (still my favorite open of all time).
  5. Poor guy laid that whole floor by himself.
  6. Maybe it's just me but both videos are blank and the first one won't play.
  7. I thought KITV was owned by Hearst?
  8. I don't like oval logos, it feels like there's so much dead space. I like how KDKA is stylized. Had they used a box instead of oval, or even just a line to separate the frequencies, I think it would have looked great.
  9. Suncoast News Network (SNN), the independent cable station owned by Citadel/Phil Lambardo, debuted new graphics a few weeks ago and maybe music as well. Everything about the new look is a huge upgrade over what they had. They're using The Enforcer which I'm not sure if they used before this update. Guess old Phil decided to finally shell out some money for once. Too bad KLKN and WLNE didn't get this, it would have been a massive upgrade from their current 2015 look which has not aged well. It also looks like they've gone 16x9 with the update. Below is a link to their weather forecast and a new
  10. Agreed, it'll likely be a very long night and I suspect some races won't be called until the following morning, so rather than do post-election coverage they'll probably still be doing on-going election stuff.
  11. I maintain that because of social distancing they should have put frosted plexiglass or something at the end of each wing so we don't see their legs dangling.
  12. Being clearly marked as security would likely have brought more unwanted attention to them as often times security guards are off duty cops. That probably would have instigated confrontations with them if the situation was already chaotic (which it doesn't sound like it was). Being plain-clothes (despite obviously following around a camera crew) allows them to blend in more. Any market that's had civil unrest recently - especially those where a controversial death has occurred - has been hiring security to protect their crews. Louisville is an example. Two of its station
  13. If that's the final product regarding the desk, there are too many shadows. It needs a lot more lighting than just that little bar at the top. Just doesn't look finished, and the black base seems scuffed. Ok I failed to consider the house lights being on and lighting adjustments being made.
  14. Finally. Is that everyone now? I always thought they poorly implemented the V2 look. Actually looks pretty decent. Virtual set, let's be clear. The only real thing in their studio is the old weather center and I believe the desk. The news fantasy part of my mind was hoping Scripps would give them some real digs, but the chroma studio lives on.
  15. I highly doubt Baron is crying over it. Maybe disappointed (if they even knew), sure, but it's business. We don't know if they sought out Baron or not. If they did but EEC offered a better deal then of course that's who they'd go with.
