    Indeed, you can add at least KSHB to that list.

    KTNV Getting New Set

    That temporary getup looks pretty good.

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    I was watching late last night around 11:30 CT and didn't see any of the broadcast nets break in with coverage, only cable. I saw Nightline had a special on it that seemed as if it was ready to go at a moment's notice.

    WVEC getting the “Tegna Set-in-a-Box”

    Sooooo much faux brick. I'll now call it the CBS This Morning effect. Parts of it look unfinished, mainly the desk and that horizontal monitor array. I wish they'd at least added texture behind it like that random standalone monitor on the right.

    Wow! That's astonishing.

    People are cancelling because they're charging so damn much. It's a negative feedback loop. You raise prices, someone can't afford it so they drop it, cable companies lose money so they feel the need (I won't say 'have') to raise prices, someone can't afford it... I'm pretty young (early 20s). Most people my age don't have cable and the number one reason why is it's too expensive. What isn't being discussed, though, is that some people are buying streaming platforms that sometimes they're paying nearly as much if they just had cable. The difference is that they can cancel it whenever and bring it back whenever, no problem. Others refuse to pay. Why? Because it's too expensive.

    The people who say they'll never watch again are often the ones who call or write back a week later to complain again. They're either idle threats or they hate watch.

    WJTV (and WHLT) new look coming?

    If the eye wasn't overlapping the 1 it'd probably look fine, otherwise yes, the kerning needs to be tighter by just a few pixels.

    Question about Market/Network Dominance

    I still think it's an interesting discussion. "We" never seem to think of NBC affiliates and locally powerhouse stations, probably because of NBCs dark days in the late 00s and early 10s. That also brings up another interesting point; how many of those power stations are power stations simply because of their affiliation, or because of the talent?

    NBC News For Kids

    *ahem* Teen Kids News would like to have a word with you.

    WTNH new graphics

    I still don't understand the need for the "co" tag. Simmons was already their chief, but one of those weird ones that does the morning shift? Then they hired Furey who already has decades of experience but decided they wanted him to still be "chief" even though he's kinda sorta not? Sounds like nothing but a marketing ploy.

    Midterms Coverage

    Any one else just catch that interesting big screen jib shot NBC News just used?

    KTVU getting a New Set

    The open is strikingly similar to WDAF's new look. Surprised no one has made that connection yet.

    KRQE New Set

    Where is this at?

    WDAF-TV renovations/set

    Gives me some vibes of the old ABC O&O look from way back when. You also have a new voice for the first time in what, 2 decades? How bizarre to put a police car with flashing lights in the open. Embracing the city's skyrocketing murder rate?
