  1. I think it could've been a short-lived variation of the v1 L3s, originally meant for V2. If you notice, the blue area looks a bit more "3D-ish" and it's a different shade of blue (looks kind of lavender blue) than what v1 used. I suggest watching the entire clip, not just look at the thumbnail.
  2. In the case with KOCO, only the L3s and weather graphics were from camera v1; all other graphics such as news topics, split-screens, and other graphics were from camera v2. And this was pretty much the case with any Hearst station that started using camera v2 in 1998 or 1999, as the L3s that would eventually be updated for camera v2 were introduced around 2000. But here's an interesting case with WESH.
  3. I saw that newscast, and only the opens and talent rejoins were from camera v2; all other graphics were from camera v1. I believe WCVB completed the transition to camera v2 around 1999, although they didn't get the updated L3s until they debuted a new set in March 2000.
  4. And I even found out that WTAE received the updated L3s for camera v2 sometime in January 2000. Perhaps some stations like WAPT received these L3s before WTAE got them.
  5. Here's part of KOAT newscast from October 2004, so my guess is they started using the rings graphics around September of that year (about the same time as WESH).
  6. Here is part of a KOCO newscast from 1998 back when they first started using camera 2.0 Correct me if I'm wrong but could KOCO have been the first HA station to use camera 2.0 and not WCVB? And here's another KOCO newscast from September of '98
  7. All I know is that KOAT started using the rings graphics sometime in the fall of 2004, but its website still used camera 2.0 until April 2006 when it was rebranded as koat.com (it was initially thenewmexicochannel.com)
  8. Did you find it in the videos section? Also, we should look for dates for when KOAT and KMBC started using the ring graphics.
  9. To answer your questions: 1) WCVB added the hashtag in front of the call letters in 2014. 2) I think it was the middle of 2003 when WCVB slightly modified its "Coverage You Can Count On" slogan by adding "Local Live" before CYCCO; it was months before the station switched from Image News to the NewsMusic Central package. 3) There was one KCCI newscast from 2002 where Image News was used in the open, but the rest of the broadcast (commercial outros, talent opens, and the close) used the B Package. 4) And yes, KOAT did use talent opens between 1999 and 2004. In fact there's an excerpt of an early 2001 newscast, and it starts at the end of the talent rejoin. And there's also a video of a KOAT newscast from 2003 when they were using their unusual variation of the camera graphics, before they switched to the NMC package.
  10. I also remember seeing a promo for WPBF news from around 2004, and while they were using the Newsmusic Central package, they still had the camera v2 graphics. Camera v2 I think actually debuted in the fall 1998 on WCVB, and then WTAE, KOCO, KMBC, WLWT, and WBAL switched to those graphics later that year. KOCO and WLWT debuted B Package (now revolution) at that time as well. WISN and WPBF switched to camera v2 in early 1999, then followed by WESH, KSBW, WPTZ, WAPT, and KOAT in late 1999/early 2000. Most of the ex-Pulitzer stations debuted camera v2 in the fall of 2000. Interestingly, KMBC continued using camera v2 until the fall of 2005, and then debuted their own variation ring. KOAT debuted the rings graphics in late 2004, although they switched over from Image News to the Newsmusic Central package in January of that year. I believe WYFF also began using ring around the same time. As previously mentioned, KOAT switched to floating logo in April 2008, five months before getting a new set (the design is identical to the sets WCVB and WTAE in 2007). WMUR started using its variation of diagrid v2 I think earlier this year. Diagrid v2 debuts on NBC stations in January 2018, then followed by WLKY and KCCI in March, and finally the ABC stations switch over in April.
  11. Here's an article about the new set in DC; Norah got a glimpse, but it's still under construction. So I suppose the CBS Evening News is going to move to Washington next month sometime probably, if not the end of this month. https://www.newscaststudio.com/2019/10/19/cbs-evening-news-dc-studio-preview/
  12. KOAT got the floating logo graphics around the spring of 2008, a few months before getting a new set. And they began broadcasting in widescreen SD in the summer of 2010. I think 2017 was when KOAT started broadcasting in HD.
  13. A few years ago, I remember seeing a video of a WPBF newscast from around 2006, and they were still using the camera graphics. But by that time almost all the other Hearst stations were already using the rings graphics. Perhaps WPBF was one of the last stations to receive the updated graphics at the time (most stations continued using the camera graphics into 2005 but got the rings graphics later that same year). WPBF also debuted the floating logo graphics rather late; they were introduced in September 2009 on the same day they rolled out a new set.
  14. WCVB's set looked somewhat similar from that time
  15. WBAL updated its set around May 2000 I believe
