  1. A great period at KNBC. They were just about to take the lead back from KABC. The set was designed by Gil Jimenez. A set design pioneer. And a great guy. I worked with him on a set in 2003.
  2. KGET’s gfx in the late 90’s through 2009 or so we’re done in house by Eye Street Productions. Their commercial production division. Eye Street also did the same package for KGPE, KCOY and I believe KION.
  3. Newsforce 29: KBAK-TV Bakersfield 1980-1982 TeleNews 29: KBAK-TV Bakersfield 1978-1980
  4. Yup. Came back to the market. Was in Bako at KERO as News and Sports Director in late 70’s into 1980. Returned to Bako and KGET. Later became media guy for the Kern County Superintendent of Schools.
  5. Networks are going away. The GM here has already made the comment, “do we really need to be a CBS/network affilliate ? They are banking on creating a local brand. CBS owns a station in Atlanta. Gray is well aware that CBS most likely will pull an NBC BOSTON type move in ATLANTA. Gray is smart to create a non CBS yet local brand.
  6. BDI did the studio set and the desk for the KPRC newscenter.
  7. Gil Jimenez Broadcast Design did the WABC set
  8. Would have see a pic to say. Their current set is from BDI. The previous 3 were Park Place sets. These sets are by Gil Jimenez. They had a few tweaks and updates over the years.
  9. Agreed. There’s more to it with Zucker. New owners wanted him out. But he and his subordinate/girlfriend violated TIME/WARNER policy. She needs to go too. I can’t see her lasting long. Especially once the merger is complete. Most likely many will be replaced by new leaders by new folks. CNN needs to return to its roots. News. Get rid of most of the opinion show BS. Do news. Do it well. Be consistent. Be reliable. Be fair. There has been and still is a market for that. Now, more than ever.
  10. That’s why Zuckerberg was canned. He didn’t disclose. She should be canned too. I can’t see how she retains any credibility within CNN or outside. They need to clean house. Rebuild trust. Especially with CNN employees.
  11. The Express Group. Update by FX. The Express Group. Update by FX. Set by PDG. Now known as Jack Morton. Great set for its time.
  12. The top 2 look like BDI designs. The last 4 ( 3 of WEWS and last of WJW ) are Pencil Logic sets. They did great work in the 90’s- KPIX, KWGN, WGN, KMGH, WJZ and many more. They were the first to use acrylic tops for anchor desks too.
  13. I worked with Chad at Cinemagic on 3 graphics packages (1998-2004) for KBAK-TV in Bakersfield. They did great work.
  14. Cinemagic. Did great work. I used them for 3 custom packages from 98-2005
  15. Actually that is the WNEV/KCBS/WVTM theme. Used briefly after the failed newswheel format in 1986-87. After that was the rebrand to Action News and the VTS custom KCBS theme.
  16. I believe it’s Clickspring. Saw a post somewhere about it.
  17. No reason they can’t be 6 NEWS. Many markets now have multiple stations branding- (channel number) NEWS
