  1. I have noticed that as well... isn't the CBS eye added way earlier in the production workflow compared to the likes of NBC and ABC? Like, I have a hard time believing that the eye was added by a single master control point when its situated in slightly different locations in almost every program.
  2. ??? What comeback? It was never dropped! KCPQ was always known as "Q13 Fox" for the longest time, so this name change is hardly going to be noticed by anyone.
  3. I was comparing our reactions. They're the same.
  4. Oh joy, this is just like WTOL all over again.
  5. Huh? Wasn't TM folded under what we know today as Westwood One though?
  6. Quite funny that you said that this package was "solely overpriced production music" when it was unveiled, and now you're using the same argument to make yet another sweeping conclusion over something 5 people on TVNT doesn't like. Point being, C Clarity works as intended, and production music is definitely not an indicator that its the "end all" when we know that TEGNA stations uses production music from time to time. Using that logic, TiH should've been dead at arrival when KARE and KUSA used stock music for stings. Personally, I would love for the Spirit signature to return, or at least stayed when they converted to G3. The fact that they dropped such an iconic legacy brand while WNEP elected to stay with their interpretation of MCTYW left a sour taste. All in all, this probably speaks to the branding decisions elected at WFAA... maybe they wanted to move away from their legacy brand to start something new and fresh for the next generation of viewers? I can understand that.
  7. Well yeah. It was professionally designed. It has a purpose. It wasn't trying to appeal to the lower common denominator. I mean, you can't convince me you don't want this umbrella. It wasn't trying to one-up their competitors with another flashy Hothaus pack, or whatever Linear Drift is doing with the | | | | | | | 's and > > > > > > > 's. This works. This is what TV stations should be striving for if they want to have a cohesive brand, not only on television but online. Armin nailed it at the end with the following: ...and it's true. Local TV stations generally have awful branding led with some people with zero understanding about the visual arts medium, yet this community is still adamant with sticking with the status quo. And yet people (not specifically you @channel2) wonder why he doesn't talk about local television, while WTSP has proven they are capable of producing gems like this one.
  8. Believe it or not, C Clarity actually has serious cuts. It's no wonder why stations like KGW, WGRZ and (more importantly) WUSA were able to survive with the current audio package. They have demonstrated that the serious cuts can carry the exact same prominence and are more than applicable for their needs, just as many as This is Home.
  9. No. You can still be creative while expressing today's design languages. Having 3D elements doesn't make it a guarantee that it'll be "creative" if one doesn't understand how its supposed to work with the design.
  10. Of course. CBC still has a legal requirement to fulfill and this decision definitely comes into breach of this. I'm just clarifying this point that CBC's local news is beyond ratings and "the competition", which is typically the case for local news south of the border.
  11. The competition is not of concern for a public service like the CBC's local news. You should direct your attention to the markets that have lost their only source of television news thanks in part of CBC's decision. In general?
  12. Highly disagree with this take. All levels of government are stressing people to social distance and to stay home, and the fact the Prime Minister begged on national television about this, and we are seeing anchors reporting from their bedrooms or balconies (like Friesen) only stresses the seriousness of this notion. I mean, just look at these people in Vancouver yesterday. Totally shook. Anyways, CBC The National's Adrienne Arsenault is now reporting at home. Andrew Chang is at studio:
  13. "Segment" i.e. production control and output by CBCNN instead of CBC directly. So... exactly what they were doing now, only a bit longer?
  14. Nick Dixon, CTV Toronto and CP24 co-anchor. Yesterday... Today...
  15. In what appears to be the magnum opus of social distancing: Global News' Dawna Friesen opted out of the Burnaby studios (aka home of Global BC) and hosted the Friday edition of the flagship Global National more than 20 kilometres away... outside a balcony close to her residence in North Vancouver.
