  1. They should've bought back the KAKELand WeatherPLEX https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR3SKHLGwTY
  2. Looks like Gray is trading KGWN in Cheyenne and its other stations for a new station in SLC.
  3. wearesandiegoandsoutherncaliforniaandsomethingtodowitharnoldschwarzeneggeronlytomakeyoutypeoutschwarzeneggertwiceproudhomepage.com
  4. Hate to speculate but…Diagrid V.1 graphics came out in 2012. The refresh came out in 2018. Potential 2024 refresh based on the 6 year cycle?
  5. WKBT has had them for over a year. They debuted them when they debuted Ross Overdrive in 2022. It was a test to see if their VP of news actually liked this vision or if he wanted to switch back to the old look. (I worked there during this transition.)
  6. I heard this from a colleague who works at an NBC Gray affiliate. It's not an NBC thing. It's a "Gray" thing. Eventually all stations will be removing their affliliation from their logos. The reasoning is to distance the stations from the affiliates and to separate itself from the fake news movement that the national media gets. Basically it's so people trust the LOCAL news and to take on their own branding and identity.
  7. It doesn't even look like they went with red on the WX graphics, but rather....gray? Hmmmmm.
  8. As someone who worked for a station bought by Coastal Television only to get terminated 2 weeks after the fact. LEAVE....NOW!!!!!!!!!!! They come in with all of these promises saying they will make the newsroom much better, invest in a lot of new equipment, provide better resources, the CEO (Bill Fielder) who is also a politician (if that gives you any idea as to what kind of person he is) will act like he is your best friend, has your interest at heart, then when he takes over he eliminates about 90% of the newsroom staff. He will offer you a severance of 1 weeks pay and an extra weeks pay if you sign paperwork promising not to discuss what happened. Spoiler alert, none of us did, and we all took to the competition and newspaper. This company makes Sinclair look like a 5 star company to work for. The guy who owns this is seriously scum. To those who work at KVRR and KQDS, get your resume and reel ready and be prepared to be on the chopping block if you do not leave immediately.
  9. Add another person retiring in May. https://www.news8000.com/news/local-news/chief-meteorologist-bill-graul-to-leave-wkbt-news-8-now-after-25-years/article_a706ef36-f056-11ed-aab1-f3f2d1e9be78.html
  10. And now the congregation waits for Matt's WGAL set comment.
  11. It appears as if WKBT in La Crosse is getting a new set. They have moved their newscasts to the newsroom. Their existing set has been around since around 2007 with some minor refreshes.
  12. 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!!!!
  13. Hmmm. that logo looks oddly familiar. Where have I seen that before?
  14. I was waiting for your comment! LOL
  15. 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!
  16. Why would WAVE, an NBC affiliate, use CBS Local?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
