  1. That will look amazing on some big tacky 3D poorly textured random shapes with some lens flares.
  2. There's a lot to unpack here... but not really worth anyone's time. But seriously... all you have to offer is "more hours of news"? Yikes...
  3. Gonna go out on a limb and say the station with the "Minnesota's most-watched station" moniker probably has the highest HH. Those taglines usually are HH-centric, not demos. Hard to say if the HH align with the demos, but I don't think it's out of the question here. I'll ask around.
  4. ...says the guy posting on a forum mostly about the aesthetics of local news...
  5. It’s worth noting each CBS O&O has a design team and an art director and can pretty much do whatever they want with station looks (within reason) and KCNC has been copying graphics from network for years. That said, a group wide change is not going to originate from Denver so just calm yourselves. Also - if you’re interested in applying - both WBBM and WCCO have art director positions open right now…
  6. I’ll dig it up… he did a great interview on a podcast a few years ago about how he got screwed out of royalties for The Price is Right.
  7. WRC launched the new look today. Same studio, same music. Looks nice.
  8. There's plenty of other options in town for local news at 11 on a Saturday. Why do the same thing with the same stories as your competitors? Why not try something different as a lead in to a popular network comedy sketch show? Local stations used to produce all kinds of programming... comedy, music, etc... why not go back to that? Why does a local station just have to purely be a news operation? If audiences and revenue are shrinking why is it such a bad idea to try something else?
  9. Looks like his behavior finally caught up with him… and hopefully the GM learns a lesson about only hiring friends.
  10. In their defense, people don't exactly jump online to praise anything that they like.
  11. This morning they are teasing an in-studio interview with Monica Lewinsky for next week Tuesday and they have said a few times “in Studio 1A” specifically.
  12. New graphics in this promo look interesting... wonder if they will translate into the show's look. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/cbs-mornings-nate-burleson-gayle-king-tony-dokoupil/
  13. WCCO has been doing this for years since the launch of their 9am newscast, LMAD leads into Dr. Phil.
  14. I don't want to derail the thread but I've also spent time at KUSA and I have no idea what you're talking about... but we can just let it go.
  15. I'm not sure it matters since you're likely judging their investments by the quality of studio or graphic design instead of equipment, personnel, or marketing.
  16. As someone who has had fun spending their money... that's not accurate.
  17. I hate speculation… but… A lot of recent graphics rollouts have come with upgrades to new CG systems. For example, Fox had major issues with the new Chyron Prime system which delayed launches at a lot of stations. There could be some kind of hardware upgrades coming along with these graphics and that’s why the rollout might be slow and staggered and not lining up with new set launches.
  18. Oof. Makes sense I guess.. would love to get my hands on the Killer Tracks library, but I won an Emmy with help from a track from Universal so I can’t complain too much.
  19. I guess this is where I’m confused… should I now be seeing Killer Tracks stuff when I search? They don’t show up as one of the labels on the Universal site.
  20. This set turned out fantastic. I also love that they're using Bethesda skyline shots in the backgrounds vs DC monuments. Does anyone know if they changed out the opens finally? I'm out of the market for a few weeks and haven't had a chance to catch anything on their online stream.
  21. 1) local station probably didn’t went to spend money on a custom design - nor did they have the time 2) it literally matters to absolutely no one outside of this website if a set looks similar to one in a different market
  22. I’ll be happy if someone goes through and cleans up these libraries. I don’t know about you but 90% of the tracks are usually just awful. Firstcom was impossible to search and find what I was looking for.
  23. “Comcast wants the FCC to issue a ruling that Nexstar should be attributed ownership of WPIX New York , which would make it in violation of the commission's 39% cap on broadcast national audience reach. The cable operator claims Nexstar’s divestiture of the station to meet FCC requirements in its acquisition of Tribune was a “sham.”” https://www.cablefax.com/programming/new-feud-comcast-says-nexstar-violates-audience-cap-tribune-order
