  1. So guessing the O&Os getting a uniform gfx package is, if not dead, delayed... 'PVI has played with the flat look before even the current in-house look debuted. Usually the weather team updates ahead of time - and that too still reflects the general look. Fall brought usual update to the Delaware valley's leading news program intros... and the 2017 look is alive and well.
  2. Part 26,626 of "does the theme song matter?" A remix was played as part of warm-ups to the Flyers/Blue Jackets game on Tuesday, 2/18... It was noticed on Twitter and more. Other coverage: https://www.inquirer.com/flyers/flyers-6abc-action-news-theme-song-jim-gardner-move-closer-to-your-world-20200219.html I guess that is one way to get some free coverage outside the sports block...
  3. I've noticed the "Tonight on 6ABC promos" and similar have had female VOs... Was almost expecting (at least some) of the Fall opens to possibly go that direction. (I would think they would leave the 6 and 11 untouched for now...)
  4. Monica Malpass just announced she is leaving, Rick doing a retrospective...
  5. And that, in this case is other stations, plural - must have a fantastic agent...
  6. So I know the tweet said 5 days... Anyone expecting a beta over the weekend?
  7. Looks like definite new branding around the Weather-/AccuWeather-/Storm-/LiveDoplerSixDoubleScan3DUltraVioletInfraRedActionSkyLiveCamFAALicensedDrone.... Center. And I wonder if the Big Board is still a thing. Or is it now a Bigger Board? It often seemed like they tried to find a reason to "touch it"...
  8. Inside Story was one I knew was done there, but yeah - basic. I think they have a few more... If anything, with WPVI, it might as well be tradition as the reason; even though the building is not yet a decade old... We can begin all sorts of speculation, though... --Will there be a new kids table for the 4 PM and weekday 10 PM news? --Will there be a temp kids table for those newscasts? --Will the Big Board remain, be upgraded, or sent to the same farm upstate with Mr. Six? --(Chromakey has returned in the temp space), and; --Big Board was absent Saturday night, but w
  9. Maybe to allow them to continue their shows that originate from the second studio? Besides, this way we know they are doing something, and even caused them to admit it.
  10. As indicated by cg41386, Perez said this is temporary, and they are building a new home "across the hall... will take about a month, and we can't wait to show it to you, it's going to be pretty neat." ETA- "about" a month could make this early July, without a doubt.
  11. Well, found the video-wall background... they certainly put some effort into their temporary set.
  12. The skyline was part of the (taped) pieces for Jim, and for time to time it appears in other packages. Of course, it is possible these were recorded segments before work began.
  13. Not sure I am a fan of the cities in boxes, and not on a map -- there appears to be no arrangement (alphabetical, or geographical) on some displays. I get it is new, and clearly there is a learning curve both on use and presentation, and the graphics themselves are certainly sharp.
  14. Via TVNewser, he is on the 2016 team. Finally, as the 2016 presidential election begins to heat up, I’m proud to announce Cecilia and Tom will join our powerhouse political team, led by Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. They will join Anchor Diane Sawyer, “World News Tonight” Anchor David Muir, Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl, Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz, Senior National Correspondent Jim Avila, Political Analyst Cokie Roberts, Political Director Rick Klein, Lead Analyst Matthew Dowd, along with Donna Brazile and Bill Kristol and an all-star group of
  15. I noticed the 10 o'clock news is really making use of the video wall, for stand-ups, weather, breaking news, etc. -- good to see it finally getting some use more than the film loop of the skyline.
