  1. A Philippine government agency on Tuesday ordered the country’s leading broadcast network, which the president has targeted for its critical news coverage, to halt operations after its congressional franchise expired, sparking shock over the loss of a major news provider during the coronavirus pandemic. https://apnews.com/fc45af8058069fc98033a9b096fdb256
  2. ABC has sent notice to affiliates that beginning February 3rd, there will be a new open and lower third for special coverage. One development though is a change from the past, however. the "Special Report" designation will only be used for anticipated coverage. Unanticipated coverage will now fall under "Breaking News" ABC justified the change by pointing to its use of "Breaking News" in GMA and WNT, adding that it will underscore urgency. Here is what the new animations and lower thirds will look like.
  3. I remember someone awhile back saying the O&O's wanted to distance themselves from the News Channel, but these new graphics more closely align them again. They even look like something the FNC/FBN graphics dept. would produce.
  4. This is probably the best execution of the package so far, even next to KOIN. Also, do I hear the 360 signature in the music used on the vimeo video?
  5. The big round screen reminds me of what FOX has in their election studio. How long has it been there at CTV?
  6. KMID ditched their building for KPEJ's. Would be interesting to know who owns KPEJ's building.
  7. Fun Fact: Hot Haus' Matt Quinn is based in Cleveland and has done a lot of work with both WOIO and WKYC. Quinn was behind OIO's famous graphical looks through most of the 2000's. Not a stretch to think they went local again with a familiar face. Much like the Nashville stations do with 615 (WCPM)
  8. NewsNet also now has a wikipedia page about it with a lot of information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NewsNet
  9. NewsNet just picked up two major-market affiliates. One in Chicago, the other in San Francisco.

  11. An Update: NewsNet confirms new year launch date, announces first affiliates. http://yournewsnet.com/where-to-see-newsnet/
  12. I mean, their corporate partner to the north *is* KRQE. That logo fits.
  13. Word is that the crowdfunding angle was ditched and investors signed on, so that's how it is able to launch.
  14. Bit of an Update: The kickstarter didn't go as hoped, and the project was rebranded. http://yournewsnet.com/introducing-newsnet/ News Net is set to launch in January. One of the big items dropped: local/regional programming other than inserted ads at the station level.
  15. https://www.bigcountryhomepage.com/news/main-news/randy-turner-to-depart-krbc-news/1405146598 Longtime KRBC Anchor/Chief Meteorologist (and former KTAB Met) is leaving the station.
