  1. you people are all off your rockers... this is not what is on bryon allen's mind... period... end of story... this isn't lifetime movies presents tvnewstalk's collective wet dream... maybe TEGNA is appealing to these people because of the way they do things... mark my words... some day you will wish more owners were like TEGNA... when those other stations are going DARK!!!
  2. you said the secret word!!! today's secret word is.... mandate... i guess they forgot about the "mandate" when they gave KVUE a new logo... and WCNC... need to impress tvnewstalk??? use the word "mandate!" works every time...
  3. the ratings will surely surge under the eyewitness news brand.... nothing better than a 70's gimmick to bring the viewers in...
  4. i am going to share something with you... some FACTS... you might want to sit down... are you sitting down??? many of the people making decisions inside tegna came from belo... i know... how could this be?? tegna stations are basically autonomous... but everyone is trying to outdo everyone else... what you are seeing are "belo people"... unleashed and encouraged to try something new... very few things have come down from the top... almost all decisions are made LOCALLY!!! sometimes by former "belo people"... no one is holding a gun to their head... they want to try new stuff... they know it is time to adapt or die... tegna didn't come in and "destroy" WFAA... the people who already worked there wanted to try a different style of news... just saying...
  5. the plan for new graphics was underway at the same time the journal stations were picking up the previous generation of graphics... by the time it was KGUN's turn planning was already underway... it just took them longer than they expected to get to this point... this roll out is over a year behind the original schedule... not sure what got them so off track... the acquisitions likely...
  6. only a handful of their nbc stations used the nbc version of inergy... not worth the extra expense for two stations to use... always enjoy this site... quick to say stations need local flavor... while also saying all stations need to "look/sound like" their affiliation... there are lots of sleepy fox affiliates out there... not everyone is wsvn...
  7. they won't be back... their departures were financially driven... with a convenient side effect of the station bringing in younger talent to replace them... unless they want to come back a much lower salary... no longtime anchor wants to be an mmj...
  8. 90%... probably around 99%... almost everything... even sports... is taken word for word from newsource... not just packages... VOs... VOSOTS... it's all newsource... with maybe a few words changed... not saying filling your show with wire packages is bad... lots of stations do that.... just not to this degree.... they must be pretty confident nobody will ever contest their inability to follow embargoes... just saying...
  9. do you have any evidence to support those claims??? seems to me like a lot of tegna stations are doing fine... even winning awards for their work!!! there is no evidence whatsoever that the graphics and the music have impacted viewership... just a tvnt conspiracy theory... the format??? maybe... but the graphics??? who cares??? one person on facebook??? if you all had your way and brought the industry back to the roarin' 90's that you all consider the golden age... the industry would be dead by 2021. tegna made $552 million last quarter... 2% more than last year... sounds to me like they're doing fine...
  10. the everlasting battle between graphics and the newsroom... most lower thirds have a character limit... most producers hate the character limit... because they can't figure out how to keep anything short... if it were up to some producers, lower thirds would be fancy closed captioning... the real story there was the arrest...
  11. writers, producers, unpaid interns... some anchors skim their scripts for hard to pronounce words... but they don't sit down and fact check it... their job is to read what scrolls up that prompter... i'm ron burgundy?
  12. this pkg is a big disappointment... it has all the makings of something done in-house... at least tegna went outside the hub to get a designer... doubt there will be a warm reception to these from many stations management teams... to go from flashy renderon graphics (which most of the old jbg stations have used since 2004) to... this... this might be the second coming of the burnt orange scripps pack... i give it a few years before it gets replaced... hopefully the rumors of the "alternate package" are true...
  13. i can assure you... everyday health was 100% done in-house and pre-dates scripps ownership of the station... and long before tmj started working with the graphics hub (that did not happen until right before tmj debut the current gfx)... if my memory serves me correctly... that lower third was thrown together in an afternoon... any resemblance to a scripps graphic is purely coincidental... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo5iF85FGv8 not the same...
  14. newsnet will be one of "those" networks... passed around between forgotten stations in a particular market until it folds... start a budget news network, get budget stations... how many .11's are they on?? the service is probably free for affiliates... newsnet makes their ad revenue off the national life insurance ads... and then there's this... so much for unbiased... (attached for when he deletes it.)
  15. oh... to be one of you that hasn’t experienced a change in ownership... it might take YEARS for the ex-Trib stations to be fully homogenized by their new owners... there is a lot more important gear that needs to be swapped out first... master control automation and newsroom systems come to mind... a lot of tribune’s in-house systems will need to go... to say nothing of networking/IT infra... graphics are going to be low priority... Trib is on Viz, and viz hardware can last a while...Scripps still hasn’t replaced the Journal gfx on KGUN... it’s closing in on five years... i predict these graphics will be around until late 2021 at the earliest...
