  1. Just watched News 4 @ 5 and was kind of confused. I turned on the tv and saw Shiba doing a stand up about ISIS. Then at the end of the piece she tossed it back to Sibila and Chuck. Why wouldn't they have Shiba host the News @ 5 if she's there?

  2. Update that debuted 9/2/14.


    Includes new rear projection background used for topical graphics, and update newsroom shots (looks to me like LA newsroom).


    There are more photos on my flickr page. (sorry but couldn't upload them all for some reason). https://www.flickr.com/photos/126675500@N05/?details=1



    I personal love it and hate it. I like the fact that they got rid of the monitor wall as the home base background like it because i hate the line. I hate it because it just looks awkward with the orange accent to the set and looks like a combo of the old set from 2012 and the set from studio 3C years ago. It looks like they've made the set smaller.

  3. BREAKING: Just found the new open and voice over for when David starts via the ABC Broadcast Graphics vimeo page: http://vimeo.com/104624794


    I also found one that just says, "World News Tonight" which will probably be used tonight and for the weekends till a replacement is announced.: http://vimeo.com/104624795


    Heres the old one with Diane for comparison: http://vimeo.com/51151557


    I guess its now confirmed that they are changing the name but are keeping the graphics for now.


    I was just going to post that. That and, NICE final show for Diane! No Instant Index tonight which surprises me a little.



    Oh, something I been wondering....Will David close his weekend WN? Has he already or does he need to do that?


    Little more about WNT....I'm surprised their not keeping Diane name on there till Tuesday. Diane has fill ins all the time for Holiday Weekends. Why is this weekend any different?


    Well Diane isn't the anchor anymore so why keep her name in the tittle. It would personally confuse me if she signs off but they still promote the show with her name.


    It will be interesting to see what tomorrow's open is gonna be. Will it say "World News with Diane Sawyer (doubtful) , "World News Tonight", "World News with David Muir" (and just have Amy say she's subbing. Or just say "World News".


    Probably because the 5 is an hour long.. It's probably hard and boring for one person to talk an hour straight.. Only time where they've been solo for the 5 at the desk is if partner is out in the field.. I personally can't stand solo anchors.. However Fox5 does make good with the format they use at 6pm


    WPIX did solo @ 5 when Jodi Applegate worked there
  6. I like the 'social square' more than the 'orange room' mainly because it matches the set better. It uses the same white brick like elements and matching floors and other elements. What i don't like about the Orange Room is that when they are giving and interview from the interview area of the Today set, you see Carson or producers sitting down and just talking. Its good that GMA doesn't have that view from the set of the new room. I think the basketball hoop and foosball table are gimmicky and serve no purpose. Who's playing football at 8:00 in the morning? I get why they did it but it seems pointless and just takes up space. The technology in the 'Social Square' is much better and more interactive than the Orange Room. They've combined the best parts of the CBS This Morning green room and the Orange Room.


    It just pisses me off that the Today Show "relaunches" themselves 6 months ago...with an extremely good mix of hard news, pop culture and interviews (exclusives and not). The create a new logo, theme (Rise to Shine, #todaysunrise, etc) and create the Orange Room, so a network morning show can better connect with their audience...and now GMA just HAS to go copy their idea. AND THEN GMA FELLS THE NEED TO LIE ABOUT IT!!! "Andrew Springer is claiming now that this had been in the works far before Today debuted their new spot" GMA also just HAD to take Today's glory away by, accidentally updating their set on the same day. It's a LOAD of BS if you ask me. Thant's my 120 word rant on the subject...***sarcasm*** No HARD FELLINGS OR ANYTHING GMA :bang:


    Thats competition. Like it was previously said, all shows copy certain elements from each other. I think the people who lose out when shows copy each other are us, the viewers.
  8. Why doesn't WNYW have a live weekend morning newscast. I think the laid back Good Day format would be great for a weekend morning when people are home to watch. Also it would be good for a breaking news situation like the train derailment. It was pretty bad that they had no coverage ( even WPIX had some coverage while the story was still developing.)
