  1. And Connection/Premier is really just a V2 of Counterpoint since the signature is pretty similar.
  2. In light of Allen acquiring the also-ran ThisTV, it must be said. It doesn't get better... Than THIS.
  3. Official word from management inside WKRN, the new graphics will debut TOMORROW (Monday, November 23) at 4 p.m. SET YOUR BANDICAMS.
  4. Honestly this is what MOST Gray stations should be using and not the WMC pack.
  5. That just doesn’t look right, at all. Yep and WKRN delayed again until after the Election we were told on Friday. They want to make sure EVERYTHING is perfect for air and the ND isn’t happy with it just yet. It’s getting there though, they have tested it and producers are training on it. WKRN is NOT getting set updates but a new studio floor, which will have the newscasts done from the newsroom this weekend while that’s being done. Not us. Probably someone else.
  6. WFXG has separated themselves. They are owned by Lockwood and operate themselves entirely in-house, they even expanded newscasts recently.
  7. I can comment further on this, they broke ground on the facility back in 2017. It was supposed to be ready by March 2018. When the Gray-Raycom merger happened, construction halted. It took them all the way until now to finally finish the building, primarily because Gray had already built the shell but it sat there for years with weeds growing around it, so they had to commit to finishing the facility. The putting green was not a local choice, that came from Hilton Howell, the president and CEO of Gray who primarily wants to use it for a company outings and other purposes. That’s th
  8. I’ve admittedly neglected the forum and I apologize. As I mentioned on Discord... No they haven’t. I think they’re still working out a few kinks and bugs. There was some setbacks with weather graphics also, especially with Hurricane Delta now. Plus, they’re focused on having no hiccups for our zoo fundraiser tomorrow so I’m sure they’re coming just they’ll be a bit late. They don’t want to rush it because they want it all to be perfected on air. Another thing to know, graphics changeover is not as simple as pressing a button, There are so many things that go into it lik
  9. That looks very similar to what WKRN might be getting color-scheme wise. October 1.
  10. As mentioned on the Discord, WFLA is set to get these graphics soon, exactly what date is not yet known. I can confirm WKRN will also be getting these graphics, a blue/red variant, by October 1 and possibly new music as well.
  11. 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.
  12. 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 CO
  13. People are too busy calling and complaining about our meteorologists getting the forecast wrong. I doubt they’re paying attention to typefaces.
  14. I still say it should be called Beacon, and I will stand by that statement.
