  1. You're right - it's a better logo in regards to its concept and evolution. Don't know what's up with the irregular overlapping of the call letters, though. What's the deal with the over-under-over-under-under?
  2. Ah, the "traditional American newscast" argument. Nothing says traditional like 11 straight VOs, forced fluff segments, unnatural social media integration, unrelatable happy talk, and stretched out formats. You know, the stuff we're apparently 'afraid of' from retooled newscasts. But it is getting late after all, I'll go check what Channel 11 have New at 11 on Eleven at 11 - 11 minutes of nonstop local news and weather before 11:11. You know, traditional. Jokes aside, I believe it all depends on execution. Contrary to popular opinion, younger viewers aren't stupid. If they see a station is being pretentious with their format, they will rightfully tune out. There was a good reason why Kyle Clark's Next worked, his persona in addition to its powerful storytelling, added with the genuine social media presence in the back, was able to click. It is not a one-size-fits-all approach, with that said. It is important for KGW and Tegna to carefully consider how they can deliver with today's approaches while having a distinctive flare that can resonate with their audiences. I mean, just ask "The Now" and watch how that turned out.
  3. NBC NewsChannel 10. We've come full circle.
  4. Pretty much. KABC's lower third can line wrap accordingly, so human error was most likely the culprit.
  5. Made it better. My point: the package is fine. One could argue it's a bit rough around the edges (why the speech bubble?), but otherwise it's fairly inoffensive. If this forum expanded their horizons beyond domestic borders (pop quiz, we don't and here's why), they could've known the core elements of this package are essentially in line with general design trends around the world.
  6. Calling news music packages "production music" and saying television design "peaked" because we don't like it is exactly the level headed analysis I would expect from TVNT.
  7. Huh. The video appears as if it was edited in post.
  8. Many of the new set pieces, including that Fox News-esque LED chandelier, was installed just for that election.
  9. Canada Election 2K19 is upon us! Canada's federal election is tonight, Monday the 21st of October, and it appears to be the tightest in decades. Due to late-re surging popularity of the Bloc and the NDP from the leader's debate a few weeks ago, all polls are determining a minority government between the Liberals and the Conservatives. It's being speculated that that the winner of the plurality could be decided by mere percentage points, so the election might go as long as 3 am eastern the next day. In the meantime: election coverage! On television: CBC/SRC and CTV is planning election coverage beginning at 7 PM ET. Global's going live at 10 ET and Citytv will provide election break-ins throughout the evening, presumably to cash in those sweet sweet American simsub bucks. Global: CBC: SRC: CTV: Citytv:
  10. Indeed. The talent sequence didn't make the cut due to its angularity, which the current pack does not possess. It's not uncommon for a creative department to play with a few ideas prior to the deadline. ABC played with a few concepts for their now-former Special Report intro which inevitably led to their final cut.
  11. Even though the now-previous logotype was Futura, the magnum opus of geometric sans serifs?
  12. Well, uhh, wow, that's is a major departure from the ticket. It's all up to the execution of their visual identity to convince the masses that this look is worthwhile. By judging their Twitter header, I'll give 'em a bit of hope.
  13. Probably to incentive people to subscribe to pay-TV with the sole purpose of watching CP24. Bell's whole "artificially inflating its value by moving key programs to pay television" schick is still alive and well; after all, it took them around six years to simulcast the MMVAs on CTV before it got the axe, and the CFL is still exclusive to TSN despite being on free to air television for 65 years.
