  3. Yes. That practice of removing time and temp from the bug which is began last year, after the station changing their news graphics. The time and temp placement on the bug during syndie programming was began in 1995 after the station changing its branding to "NBC 5 Chicago" or "NBC 5".

It will be the second reporter of Filipino descent to join WNBC, a year after the death of the station's first Filipino reporter Katherine Creag in February 2021.
  13. Since 2016, "We're 4 New York" is combined with the word "Together" to form "Together, We're 4 New York". There had rumors that they wanted to bring back in 1997 and in 2012, but nothing happened, But they actually revived two times, one in 2002 (after 9/11) and in 2007 (after the station converted to HD). the theme was later used in news promos in 2008-2009, but they replaced it with a production music piece in 2010 but they keep the slogan.
  14. During the live shot by Sandra Torres this morning, there's the reporter from WFLD photobombed the live shot. meanwhile, the bug on the lower thirds had reverted back to normal effective today but this time without the "CHICAGO" wordmark.
  15. Saw the Chicago Marathon 2021 Results Book online, and there's the ad promoting the 10PM newscast featuring Stefan and Allison (minus Brant) that is saying "CONGRATULATIONS MARATHONERS!", but they lacking the 2012 NBC 5 Chicago logo. take a look at the picture.
  16. Here is the promo from WTVJ: https://fb.watch/adshYWT9ko/
  17. There's is an alternate version of the ad. the voiceover tag now says "...And "Sing 2", Only in theaters Wednesday (rated PG)!" which is used for this week only. Look at 0:09 mark for the video.
  18. WNBC's holiday sing along is doing virtual again for the second year. This year's song will be "Feliz Navidad" and it is to tie-in to Illumination's animated film "Sing 2" due to release in theaters on December 22. This year's holiday sing along will marked the fifth year anniversary of hybrid Live Action/Animation promotional involvement between WNBC and Illumination. Take a look on their different comparisons from 2016 and this year: The one from 2016 is filmed in the Rockefeller Center Tree, but they include scenes from promotional clip from the first film. Following the "Happy Holidays" line and Gunter skates over the 2008 "4 New York" logo, the voiceover tag says "...And catch "Sing", in theaters December 21st!" The 2021 version of the promo begins with the characters from the second film followed by Pat, Gus, and Raphael says "Wait! Wait! Wait! What? What?" before the talent singing the same song. Towards the end of the promo, Jimmy Crystal (voiced by Bobby Cannavale) buzzed it, then Chuck Scarborough ends the promo (ala last year) says "Happy Holidays from NBC 4 New York (and Telemundo 47)..." followed by the voiceover tag "...And "Sing 2", Only in theaters December 22nd (Rated PG)!" This is the first time that the WNBC holiday sing along that to bear the MPA PG rating logo as like did to other movie tie-in promotions.
