News Director

News Director (7/8)



  1. A belated post, but former WJBK and KTTV anchor Tamara Iwerks died in a hiking accident back in May. https://www.independent.com/obits/2021/06/14/tamara-iwerks/
  2. Let me guess. The set is going to be situated in a corner.
  3. Not much will really be lost here even if they do NewsNet it. These stations add very little to their markets.
  4. The bottom line is: The KTVA intellectual property sale should have never been allowed to happen and cannot be undone. Something needs to be done about the intellectual property license kabuki that Gray and Sinclair play in order to skirt duopoly rules. If the FCC can't do anything about it, one would think the DOJ would be able to under antitrust rules.
  5. Wonder who did the WIS 1991 theme? Seems like way more than production music. Gives me Peters Communications vibes.
  6. About time. The Raycom websites were some of the worst around IMO.
  7. Another one I've wanted to figure out: the WPBN TVBD-era theme. It certainly sounds like more than production music. Bears a superficial resemblance to the WJBK "Major Theme" IMO.
  8. The promo cut in this: Sounds an awful lot like the early 90s KSAT theme... Production music perhaps??
  9. No doubt the brainchild of some Cox consultant...
  10. Yep, it's a smart business move. If you've got the channel space, might as well put it to use if you can make some money off it.
  11. This is probably because Nexstar is requiring its stations to burn in a "News Nation" courtesy on certain videos submitted to the network news services in a lame attempt to promote it. It's goofy, like everything else associated with News Nation.
  12. Also, the KCTV logo is bad. I wasn't really a fan of the logo they've used the last 20 years or so, but in making something new, they had the opportunity to try for something unique or interesting, but instead did...that. Really unfortunate. It's pretty much along the lines of what Gray and Nexstar do when they change a station's logo. I'll give a group like Morgan Murphy credit on their redesigns. Some of the logos (WISC) were a miss, others were pretty good (KXLY)...but at least they tried something original. Not just slapping the network logo next to a generic sans-serif channel number. Same for Tegna really. Not everyone is a fan of what they've done with the WXIA and WTSP logos, for instance, but it sure beats going this route. (For the record I actually like the new WTSP 10 logo)
  13. The graphics are good although I do wish they came in more colors than red and blue. Talk about extremely overused. Remember when stations had logos and graphics with purple, gold, teal, etc. Now it's all either bright red or bright blue. Lame. That's where Tegna gets some credit, actually. I've never had a problem with the graphics so much as the music. I think people associate the two though.
