  1. It looks like they're testing out the full package here in Atlanta at WUPA before rolling out to the "bigger" O&Os.
  2. Ah gotcha. Well, I hope there’s more of this to come, as I actually like these a lot.
  3. So, I'm not sure if this is for special COVID-19 coverage, but it looks like they finally dropped the rest of their new graphics. These certainly closely resemble the weather graphics launchd some months ago. Another part of me wonders if this is just for the 11:00 newscast, since it looks like they've rebranded it as WSB TONIGHT in lieu of the long running "Nightbeat":
  4. "Guess, what, Trish? YOU'RE THE M*********N IMPROPER INFLUENCE!"
  5. Just saw these. I like them. Though, given the weather graphics, I was expecting something more like a full overhaul than this. But I think it took the look they’ve had for a while and cleaned it up. They definitely don’t look as “busy” as they did before.
  6. I gather this was what Justin wanted, in order to spend his evenings with his family, per replies on Jovita's post.
  7. Believe it or not, I thought “Georgia’s News at Ten” was clever, seeing as it tied into WGNX’s (now WGCL) call letters, which were established well before their news operation started.
  8. I’m surprised no one’s yet mentioned Craig Lucie’s departure from WSB.
  9. Gotcha. Admittedly, I haven’t been watching much of WSB (or TV In general) lately, so I haven’t seen this. Thanks!
  10. I hope so. With the new open and new weather graphics, a (much-needed) graphics overhaul to the remainder seemed inevitable. That being said, was this during the sports segment? They’ve been using the “slanted” version of the blue background for sports for a while.
  11. I really like the new weather graphics! Hopefully the OTS and lower thirds will follow suit sooner than later. They’re too stark a contrast with these newer graphics so I do believe they’re rolling out a new look piecemeal. Time will tell.
  12. They’re in December 1977 right now. So were probably close to seeing Kathleen Turner take over the role of Nola Dancy Aldrich soon.
  13. It’s kind of interesting too how people in comment sections and on YouTube tend to be ignorant of legal implications of speaking too soon. So many people were like “how come she can talk about everyone else’s business but not her own?” Well, that’s probably because she was getting her ducks in a row and her attorney advised her not to speak on it at all until Kevin got served.
  14. Random aside, but for some reason whenever I hear someone mention The Doctors, I think of the old soap opera and not the current talk show...
  15. Could use a little polishing. Do that and make some new lower thirds, OTS, etc. and I’m cool with it. (Though a part of me also wishes they’d just “borrow and modify” the WFTV graphics.)
  16. That’s just it. To me, it looks incomplete and rushed. Also, I feel like my real gripes are the lack of serifs, the 1s are too fat and that garish color choice.
  17. Yeah, I don’t take issue with C Clarity as a whole, just certain cuts. At least these actually look like “1”s. There’s only one scenario I can think of where this logo would’ve worked: A pre-9/11 WPIX, seeing as this logo resembles the twin towers at an angle.
  18. ACK! WXIA’s new logo...
  19. So, WXIA just unveiled a new logo and I’m not feeling it...
  20. Yeah, I’m definitely seeing some KABC/KGO/KFSN influence here, along with a slight hint of KMOV (which I would really like WGCL to get its hands on)
  21. I suppose they’ll be the Chet and Nat of Cincinnati.
  22. I could actually see WSOC being some value to Disney if they combine certain resources with WTVD. For example, if something major is going on in Raleigh that's of interest to the whole state (i.e. something at the state government level), WSOC could just toss to a reporter from "our sister station in Raleigh" and vice versa.
  23. Actually, an O&O WSB might still refer to their newscasts as "Channel 2 Action News". WABC actually still refers to their newscasts as "Channel 7 Eyewitness News" in their openings. (Granted, they're the only station in the group that doesn't refer to themselves as ABC "X" at all times).
  24. My point exactly. As I see it, it’s not that Disney wasn’t interested in buying WJLA (and WFAA, for that matter). It was that that Albritton and Belo weren’t interested in selling those stations separately. But for reasons I mentioned before, I feel Disney would be remiss to not have at least considered buying these three: WSB is one of their strongest affiliates nationwide, WSOC’s resources could be combined to a degree with WTVD, and WFTV is in WDW’s turf. Incidentally, if The Mouse buys Cox’s ABC’s affiliates, it sets up Meredith to make a clean buy for the remainder of Cox’s stations, since that would eliminate the Atlanta conflict.
