  1. Next station that gets the graphics won't even use a logo at all.
  2. Several of Tegna's stations have excluded their websites from the Wayback Machine for some reason. I noticed this with WZZM, WXIA and WKYC's websites, but some have not been excluded yet (such as WUSA, WFAA and KXTV). Any particular reason on why they would do this?
  3. That looks like a custom version of what KTRK is using now. Here's a comparison:
  4. You know what else got lost? They also got the Tegna graphics: https://youtu.be/AeFsLjpr9S0 And WQAD may be next because they're a different logo on their website right now.
  5. If it turns out to be true, then Judy Justice could produce less episodes than Judge Judy - maybe around 13-20 episodes per season.
  6. I think I've figured out where Judy's new show will end up...
  7. It seems like Fox wants to kill off the boxkite logos, but something is keeping them from doing so.
  8. That was adapted from Raycom.
  9. For groups whose graphics are hubbed, you would think that the graphics hub would be responsible for setting up the graphics in each weather system; or if there are, that they would have artists that also have experience (or at least given some training) with Baron, WSI, etc. Aren't the meteorologists provided a style guide of a new graphics package in the event of a graphics overhaul? It should document what fonts to use, not to mention providing example screenshots showing what each element should look like.
  10. Someone mentioned on here that there will be a "Look Y" launching sometime before the 2020 Olympics. I'm predicting that this could be it and that NECN just happened to be the first to switch to the new look. After all, their new logo is the very first one to include NBC's peacock.
  11. I'm actually wondering the same thing. Could there be a possibility that NBC could expand these graphics onto the rest of the O&Os in the coming months?
  12. And the ones that do live stream, I can’t even watch their recent newscasts on demand!
  13. You know this isn't going to end well when even its' host is confused about this.
  14. Nexstar's graphics hub is based in Nashville, which would explain this.
  15. Replace the font in that logo with Proxima Nova, and that would look exactly like something from a Tegna station. (Ironically, Scripps did say they wanted a "Tegna Lite" look)
  16. Considering these factors: Cable and streaming services, obviously. How possible is it to obtain a network affiliation? - If the new station is only serving a portion of a larger city, how could you convince the network to allow you to be their secondary affiliate? (Like how KNTV was the Bay Area's secondary ABC affiliate serving San Jose, alongside KGO) Could it be run entirely by one person; news department, ad sales, etc.? The new station would have to some type of automation. But let's say the station couldn't be completely automated. For example, NBC wants all of its affiliates to immediately switch to the network feed for an impromptu presidential address. Could you control the station remotely? FCC approval Getting advertisers Presentation. - How and where are you going to get a new set for newscasts (assuming the new station will run an in-house news department) - What will you do about your station's graphics?
  17. Both logos are on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/foxeastidaho/
  18. Does stolen logos count as knockoffs? I'm asking this because KXPI-LD in Pocatello, Idaho stole the logos of FOUR other Fox stations! (KSWB, WNYW, WTTG and WAGA)
  19. I just found this on NewscastStudio... https://www.newscaststudio.com/2019/12/04/cbs-oo-new-graphics-rollout/
  20. The new Scripps look isn't that bad... ...if it was made for a small-market station, or if this were a fan mockup, a cheap VideoHive template, or even a PowerPoint template. But for Scripps stations? Most of which are major broadcasters in major markets? NO!!!!!!!!! From everything I've seen of this look so far, it's way too boring for me to handle. Actually, it's so boring that I've actually ran out of ways to criticize these graphics! And since Scripps now owns WPIX, these ultra-underwhelming graphics might be coming to New York City!!! Take a minute to think about that. That being said, I'll be shocked if these graphics manage to stick around for 2 or more years. In fact, I expect this new look to meet the same fate as Raycom's 2013 red/white/blue look: It'll only last for about a year and a half (or less), then decommissioned mid-rollout. B O R I N G Not me. After an issue that I had one year in a student program at WCPO, I stopped caring. The FCC can revoke their license for all I care.
  21. From my understanding, Linear Drift is Nexstar's graphics hub and a standalone motion design agency. Some of their work is created exclusively for Nexstar stations (the WISH/WTNH and CBS/ABC/FOX/NBC looks for example) while others were commissioned by non-Nexstar outlets (such as the WLEX and CBS O&O looks). I believe that only their non-Nexstar looks can be syndicated to anyone.
  22. 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.
  23. This wouldn't be the last time KARK would rip off another station's logo...
