  1. I just came across this video and I figured you guys would be interested in this. So when Dayton's WKEF and WRGT moved into their then-new building some time ago, they left their old facilities just standing there. Someone managed to gain access and took a look around... The building may have been torn down since then.
  2. This wouldn't be the last time KARK would rip off another station's logo...
  3. I just rewatched that section, but those graphics were actually for NBC’s former overnight news service, NBC Nightside. They do look similar though. Here’s the full open: https://youtu.be/xZQ1aMBNgvg?t=54
  4. I didn't see WESH's version in there. Only WTVJ's.
  5. In Florida, WESH copying WTVJ's Novocom look in the late 1990s... WTVJ: https://youtu.be/iDz4oiwQ_Rg WESH: https://youtu.be/-_RvbhzeRUs

    Surprisingly, their website still hasn't updated to the new logo: https://www.wkyc.com/

    Inside the station: As long as there isn't chronic talent turnover, they should be fine. Outside the station (viewers watching at home): The rebranding shouldn't make the station any worse than the "farm system" era, but they're screwed either way.
  8. Don't be surprised if it uses the same graphics as WUSA's "Get Up DC!"

    Just wait 'til this logo debuts and viewer complaints start flooding into the station on social media!

    Their soon-to-be-new logo? ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW??? WHAT THE F$&% IS THIS?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!? THIS is where we're at with broadcast logo design? There are things in life that just doesn't need to happen. This is one of them. Now I gotta update their Logopedia page with this painfully underwhelming abomination that ANYONE can recreate in Powerpoint in just under ten seconds... It hasn't debuted yet and it's already giving every bad station logo a run for their money; yes, even this logo from station KXDF-CD. TROIKA EVEN MADE YOU A LOGO! AND IT'S 999,999,999X BETTER THAN WHAT'S ABOUT TO HAPPEN!!! (image below) 1. This logo is so underwhelming and bland that I cannot just sit on the sidelines and let WKYC or Tegna get away with this. 2. What works in Great Britain doesn't always translate well in here in the US.
  11. Well, the theme of their graphics has been the same since then (3D glass cityscape of Providence + blue/red color scheme), but their current iteration is technically a different graphics package from the original Renderon-designed look. Original: https://vimeo.com/15641672 Current: https://vimeo.com/172253765
  12. This open actually reminds me of WPVI's opens, with all the random footage.
  13. So I randomly came across WLBT's website, and their About Us page had this across the top. It looks they'll be the next to get the WMC/KLTV look... https://www.wlbt.com/about-us/contact/
  14. Knowing how cheap most of Gray's graphics packages look, this was the only thing that I feared would happen to the ex-Raycom stations when the merger was announced; and it's already happening in a couple of markets (Memphis & East Texas)
  15. Are you sure that belongs to KNBC? Because I think I see a Circle 7 on the right side of that.
  16. Came across these two stock After Effects templates that are blatant ripoffs of a couple Renderon-designed looks. First is a knockoff of WPTV's 2008 HD look, and it is BAD: https://videohive.net/item/news-opener/7776494 Second is based off KCTV's 2015 look: https://videohive.net/item/4ch-breaking-news-mega-pack-premiere-pro-after-effects/22028374?ref=mildtheme
  17. And, if you look closely, it looks like the logo animation was recycled from the previous open: Old: New:
  18. That’s because Sinclair didn’t own any stations in Indianapolis around that time.
  19. Is WTVQ still owned by Morris? It’s hard to tell when the rest of their stations still look cheap.
  20. I should've posted this a long time ago... So apparently, WPIX was planning on getting a version of the WXMI/WXIN look at some point, but it never happened. Some screenshots were posted on a Tribune Creative West designer's Cargo Collective portfolio page, but those screenshots must've been taken down last time I checked. However, I have them saved to my computer so here they are: News open: Split screen: Lower thirds and tickers (which would've looked similar to the ones that KFSM uses):
  21. I feel like Hothaus made these graphics, judging by how these are animated. (Yes, I know it’s unbelievable)
  22. How was you able to get a copy of the style guide?
  23. It's been done before. Remember when Spike (now the Paramount Network) took Cops away from Fox?
  24. Disney or Comcast could pull the show from Fox and move all first run episodes to FX.
  25. They are getting new ones toward the end of the year. This new weather graphic appeared on WCPO. Could this be part of the new graphics?
