  1. I saw a promo tonight at work on WTVF that had a 5 background that looks like it could be the new graphics for something called “NewsChannel 5 Now”. I don’t know what that is, but it looks like, at least based on that promo that the stylized 5 logo and the red rounded rectangle are staying. That was the one and only time I’ve seen something that resembles new graphics though, if I see it again I’ll make sure to grab a screen grab.
  2. I give it maybe 6 months to a year and the contract will be terminated because WISH-TV aired content that Family Broadcasting considers objectionable and against their moral fiber. But does he really? Call me skeptical but anytime a big wig at a cable news network is “part of the story,” that is usually the network trying to milk it for ratings. That would be an absolutely sick thing to do, but let’s be real, do we put it past CNN and Jeff Zucker? “I have COVID-19, but I feel fine and I’m going to continue working from home.” But are we sure it’s because of COVID-19 or is it because of new management? Let’s be real, WGCL has trouble keeping that male anchor chair filled. And another one to add to the irrelevant former Trump ass-kisser—-uh I mean FOX Newsers list including Megan Kelly, Bill O’Reilly, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Bolling. Drain the swamp.
  3. People are too busy calling and complaining about our meteorologists getting the forecast wrong. I doubt they’re paying attention to typefaces.
  4. I still say it should be called Beacon, and I will stand by that statement.
  5. You know what is extremely redundant on local TV news broadcasts in 2020? Time and temp bugs.
  6. Am I the only one who thinks this set is going to get dated very quickly? From the angular glass windows behind the anchors and especially separating the weather center and weather pod, to the actual columns and bones of the set looking like they come from the 1980s. I honestly think it’s flashy and nice, but I do feel like this is going to get old very quick.
  7. Oh I heard it, a few times. They totally lifted that track off News Music Now.
  8. I'm wondering if WTKR/WGNT, WPIX, and WTVR have been approved to keep their graphics packages because Scripps doesn't plan on keeping them in the fold.
  9. Them or WKRN, right now it's a tossup between the two. Both have pretty much figured out what it takes to succeed. WSMV is probably the biggest success story after finishing the November 2018 book in 4th place and now competes with WKRN for 2nd.
  10. This new look and sound is going to kill WTVF in Nashville. Especially considering they've had two consecutively bad ratings periods in a row, they're freefalling from grace. How far the mighty will fall. Only time will tell when Scripps will finally ground their helicopter since they are the only ones in the market with one, I suspect this year.
  11. I’ve checked out some more newscasts on NewsOn and it looks like WRDW is starting to experiment with a few more cuts. The main theme (minus the signature) has made it into the evening newscast opens but it still doesn’t fit. The morning newscast is using the cut that they were first using mentioned previously. They also ran a breaking news open during their noon newscast yesterday that used a unique Breaking News cut. So it seems like they’re still experimenting, but the package as a whole still doesn’t fit the graphics or the opens at all.
  12. Set is EXACTLY what WSMV got, right down to the weather center. It’s also layout wise exactly the same. I am noticing the lighting isn’t very good on KCTV’s set, may need some adjustments because from the videos I saw the people are very dark. There’s also some issues with the video marquee boards (on the desk and in the weather center header) and you can tell the video in those was not formatted correctly since the logos are stretched. Honestly, that set should not have taken as long as it did to go on the air to have the issues they have with lighting and the other aesthetics.
  13. They do, but the news director is one of those who literally calls all the shots.
  14. Just over a year later and color me shocked... WRDW (which I went on a long-winded rant about on the forums this morning) switched to SAM’s Guardian this afternoon dropping Enforcer V.1. Before you get your hopes up though, just as done before, the ND selected the worst cut of Guardian to use over and over again (and uses a version without the signature that doesn’t fit the open). The graphics remain the same.
  15. Knowing how strong willed she is, she probably didn’t. I also noticed a few times it seemed like she wanted to cry but restrained herself.
