  1. The designer of the new graphics package at WRIC Just when you think it couldn't be any worse, I hop on Photoshop and say, "Hold My Beer." I better not speak too loud, knowing our luck, someone in Creative Services over there will hop on here, take one look at the old logo and be like "this is the sexiest thing I've ever seen! Why aren't we using that logo?" Next thing you know... TADA!!!!
  2. Hmmm. that logo looks oddly familiar. Where have I seen that before?
  3. I was waiting for your comment! LOL
  4. Ahh yes, the Bill Fielder Special; have several staff meetings, promise sunshine, rainbows, better equipment, more resources, better pay, etc. In the meetings, he talks about how he worked with Gray, and he has connections to take a good quality newscast, and make it even better. Then once he takes over, he makes you sign the "employee handbook" under duress without reading the handbook, and threatens you if you don't sign it right then and there. (one of the things it says, it makes you an At-will employee and they can fire you for any reason including cause) whacks everyone out of a job, and offer a severance of one paycheck, and if you accept it, you aren't allowed to discuss what happened. (So do NOT accept the buyout). I, along with anyone else who has experienced the Bill Fielder Special, am telling you right now, if that man, or Scott Centers, his right hand man, EVER set foot in your TV station, start working on your Resume and Reel and run like hell. Take this from Several people in Alaska and Wyoming, and now with the NewsHub staff, who have experienced this!
  5. Why would WAVE, an NBC affiliate, use CBS Local?
  6. WAVE debuted their new logo on air today. They dropped the long time WAVE 3 branding for just “WAVE”. The graphics and music remain the same.
  7. Talk about going Retro! Looks like WAVE will be getting a new logo this year to commemorate their 75th Anniversary. From what I've been told, it'll debut on air early this year.
  8. WFIE may be close to switching. This popped up on social media the other day. On air, they are still using the Limerick Look. I guess any day now???
  9. If I worked at Waypoint Media, I would be updating my resume & reel, and try to run like hell!
  10. Yup! The other Ryan that was in there (Matoush) took a job at KSNT in Kansas, and their old Chief Met took a job in Rapid City, SD. Everyone who remained left early before their contract was up. Now there's no one there news-wise.
  11. Their Cheyenne reporter walked out, and the lone meteorologist is leaving, their News Director doesn't know a thing about running a news operation since she was in Creative Services for several years (She made the old opens, reverse intros, etc. and if you go to YouTube and watch the old KTWO, it looks horrible. Her husband is a conspiracy theorist who works in Master Control. Neither are the brightest crayons in the box.) If anyone was smart, they would do research on KTWO BEFORE they apply.
  12. Not to mention the guys who run that are straight up jerks! Before I got let go due to "Newsroom Restructuring", this email was sent to us from a former reporter in Alaska.
  13. So, they cut the news talent, and expand the newscasts...Real smart *eyeroll*
  14. And the following has happened: They let their morning met, their sports director, and one of their evening anchors go, as well as cancel the weekend newscasts.
  15. Their set isn't THAT old. (5 years)
  16. I wonder if they will bring back the 6 News Branding
  17. Is it just me, or has WTHR executed the graphics a lot better than the original TEGNA stations? I can't point my finger on what looks/feels different about WTHR's L3's, etc. but I like it.
  18. As someone who works in this group, I can say we are all curious as to what will happen.
