  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.

    This is a speculation: Is this downgrade gonna make WKYC even worse than the time they were NBC’s “farm” system?


    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.

    Don't be surprised if they bring that news title back to revamp their morning show as "Sun Up San Diego on News 8".


    Don't be surprised if it uses the same graphics as WUSA's "Get Up DC!"

    Slow your roll there partner.


    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.





    But KFC, you're overreacting to a simple TV station logo; even channel 5 in the UK used a logo exactly similar to this.


    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.

    WPRI hasn't gotten new anything since they went HD eight years and two owners ago. They're due.


    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.

    Yes, I think that is what I mean. It looks unfinished and its awkward animations and pauses. I am wondering if the larger markets are getting a more "pizzazz" package, while smaller markets, something lesser. But, it doesn't surprise me with Gray. I always thought the WRDW graphics were awkward and horrendously bland also. 


    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)

    I have to agree that was one of the best branding efforts at KNBC.


    Here is a promotional pin that was issued at the time of all the 1984 Olympics hype.

    I don't think KNBC was actually flying any airships at the time because the 1976 Telecopter crash was still a fresh memory at NBC Burbank.






    Are you sure that belongs to KNBC? Because I think I see a Circle 7 on the right side of that.

    Shockingly enough, during Sinclair-Tribune, Indianapolis was NOT one of the ten TV markets it had to divest by the DOJ.

    That’s because Sinclair didn’t own any stations in Indianapolis around that time.

  10. 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):

  11. That's the "sports" variant of the OTS template. It's existed forever.


    Someone sent me a copy of the style guide once so, just to prove it...



    How was you able to get a copy of the style guide?

  12. Neither Disney nor Comcast could pull new episodes from FOX. They can't just arbitrarily pull a show off a network they don't own for obvious reasons.

    It's been done before. Remember when Spike (now the Paramount Network) took Cops away from Fox?

  13. Wouldnt the FX channel and The Simpsons still be tied to the hip either through Disney and Comcast after the sale? The only tie through new FOX will be the first run on the network ....

    Disney or Comcast could pull the show from Fox and move all first run episodes to FX.

  14. I must be the only one who still likes the Scripps graphics and thinks they are aging well. Love the modifications WMAR received.
    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?
