    National Lacrosse League

    Saw something curious, Sportsnet Pacific is televising a 30-minute broadcast of a game featuring Vancouver's National Lacrosse League team, the Warriors. Couldn't help but notice that the graphics are incredibly similar to the ones used by Altitude Sports and Entertainment. The team Vancouver was playing was not a Colorado-based team. From what I gather, the NLL also has a deal with B/R Live, but not sure how Kroenke Sports and Entertainment factors into this either.

    SWX Right Now.

    I've only ever seen promos for it on KHQ. They seem to air collegiate sports and weather information from KHQ in the daytime. They also have a studio at a local casino in the area and their distribution is mainly via OTA subchannel on KHQ and their sister stations. They also carry a simulcast of a morning sports radio show from ESPN 710 Seattle, Brock and Salk. Haven't been able to see if it's a proper video feed or if they are merely running the audio with a full screen board of scores (not sure if anyone in Seattle runs the live video of that show for that matter).

    2019 MLB Season

    Didn't think the Marlins needed to rebrand already but - new owners gonna do what they want.

    2019 AAF Season

    It indeed is a virtual set. And according to this article from Sports Video - CBS Sports had a hand in developing their on-air graphics (ie - expect to see them a lot). https://www.sportsvideo.org/2019/02/08/at-dawn-of-aaf-era-technological-innovation-drives-live-productions/ There's also going to be a lot of games produced from a central location instead of a truck.

    Electrical Fire Affects FOX News, NBC News Capitol Hill Studios

    I was thinking maybe WTTG switched the cameras at best - but graphics were inserted in NYC in a FNC control room. But then, they could've had access to the video pieces that were missing, right? But the video I've seen is that there is no lower left FNS bug - so they could've loaded their templates to WTTG (or had them there as a backup). Evenif they were automated, you can go manual fairly easily and the FNS crew could've stepped in those roles.

    I think there's gonna be a rebranding/refresh really soon, lol.

    Electrical Fire Affects FOX News, NBC News Capitol Hill Studios

    Noticed that Kasie DC is coming out of the MTP studio. They usually come out of one of those Capital Hill studios, right? Politics Nation with Al Sharpton also came out of the same studio - but was planned apparently.

    CKFM drops its entire on-air staff.

    Virgin Radio debuted a new morning show with Adam Wylde (formerly of Citytv's Breakfast Television) and TJ - who was brought in to take over the morning show in what was assumed to be an interim basis. Still a baffling decision why they turfed the entire on-air staff. Adam's mother is Marilyn Denis, long time co-host on sister-station 104.5 CHUM.

    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    Abstract idea - east coast/central stations run an abbreviated version of their late local news in place of the halftime show in this scenario.

    New Fox Sports graphics (2017 Edition?)

    When the Hurricanes played as the Whalers, I noticed Fox Sports Carolina also changed the colours of the scoreboards. Sportsnet does the same when the Raptors wear their Drake/Gold uniforms (the court also changes to match the jerseys). A few years ago when the Raptors paid homage to the Huskies, Toronto's original pro-basketball team in the 40s with inspired unis and a special court, TSN referred to the team as the Huskies on screen.

    International Out and About

    Just watching "The Weekly" - which is a current affairs show hosted by Wendy Mesley on CBC (and presumably CBC News Network). Wendy was the primary backup and dedicated Sunday evening anchor during the Peter Mansbridge-era of The National and led the show during the transition to the new format. They've been on the air for a year now, using Studio 55 at the CBC - which is also known as the home of The National. Here's a few caps/photos. They change the colours around to suit their look (orange and teal vs. dark blue) which I am quite a fan of. They also borrow the graphics from The National - albeit with a different colour for the font. I've included a few photos from The National just for a comparison.

    2018 NFL Season

    They are lightyears ahead of where they were pre-SB50. Then everyone updated (or in ESPN's case, went everywhere)! At this time, I'd love to see a Sportsnet refresh - they're not too 3D but could use an update. What they do on Tim & Sid is what should be across the network/HNIC.

    2018 NFL Season

    I think it's too early. Maybe they change the colouring a bit - something related to the SuperBowl colours maybe. But I think NBC might be the only broadcast network to keep a separate look for the NFL (albeit a great one that should've been expanded to all their properties).

    2018 NFL Season

    If ESPN keeps the scoreboard for next year after all, it would offer some kind of unification between their NBA/CBB looks. When I flipped it on, that's honestly what I thought they'd do.

    A day in TV license court

    The CBC News Network is technically funded entirely by subscription revenues per each cable subscriber and advertising revenue. Since its considered an extension of CBC News, I'm sure the accountants have figured out a way to make it work out so those funds go into the CBC News piggy bank.
