    International Out and About

    I actually love Eurosport's ambitious design strategies based around unique cultural niches, like manga in 2020 and K-pop in 2018. This is going to be so good - cannot wait!!

    CTV are re-doing their local news promos to fall in line with their recent network refresh. Is a news rebrand incoming? I sincerely hope not, their current graphics are too good.

    International Out and About

    Timestamp is 17:08 for those who are wondering. By the way, Global Toronto is making some changes to its morning lineup. Jennifer Valentyne, the former Citytv host who recently joined sister radio station Q107, is now joining Antony Robart from News Final in a reboot of Global Toronto's local morning news program newly named Global News Morning, bringing the Toronto affiliate in line with their regional colleagues' naming schemes (and reusing a broadcast title they dropped 15 years ago). Jeff McArthur and Carolyn MacKenzie, the now-former hosts of the local Toronto program, will continue to host the nationally televised "The Morning Show", which remains unaffected.

    And here it is...

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. I found this particularly surprising considering that the news division was short on resources and revenue for a pretty long time...like for more than 15 years now. I guess Rogers found some extra cash after gutting out some auxiliary staff, and in turn the last remains of a traditional news format after last year's reboot.

    Citytv Toronto just teased a promo for their upcoming news chopper on their 6pm newscast! It's "coming soon".

    A day in TV license court

    No commercials. They have the license fee for a reason. Besides, their clout can literally choke the private sector to death if commericals were allowed, even on a exclusive platform like BBC One. They have commericals on the television and online platforms, a few on Radio 2, none on Radio 1 and Premiere. Taxpayers pay less than a dollar for the service, however, they do not have the same "TV tax" system as the United Kingdom.

    Emergency Alert System and AlertReady

    from Pelmorex: "On November 28th at 1:55 PM local time (2:55 PM local time in Quebec), a test of the Alert Ready system will be conducted. The test will be distributed on TV, radio and compatible wireless devices"
  9. Woohoo! We're back on Invision! Question though: Will a dark theme be also addressed?

    CKFM drops its entire on-air staff.

    Another oddball layoff notice brought to you by Bell Media.

    Midterms Coverage

    Most of the broadcast networks will be live streaming (and most likely archiving) their primetime coverage online, making the bygone practice of uploading entire broadcasts Weatherlover1192-style obsolete.

    New WUSA ”Get Up DC” Graphics

    ...except that the graphics remain the same and it's just a new intro for their morning show?

    Emergency Alert System and AlertReady

    Canada's first wireless alert test did not achieve full success, according to the CRTC. Another wireless test is now planned for November, presumedly with Ontario and Quebec getting a 2 day head start from the rest of the country. A similar test for the traditional broadcast medium will commence in December.

    Tokyo 2020 logo released

    I don't like it. They could've done a lot better with the scripting and the "2020" typeface looks very unbalanced altogether with the logo. A lot of improvements could have been made here and as a result it appears inferior to NBC Olympics' past logos.
