  2. But what about WCBS-TV New York?, Bill Carey was the news director at the time.
  3. I believe KGET and KGPE used the same client (Novocom), but they had different graphics in the late 1990s.
  4. Based on Weeter's suggestion that "It was still entirely possible for a station's in-house graphics department to create an entire news graphics package on their own.", I wonder who did the WNBC 1995 NewsChannel 4 graphics?
  5. Well this gives me a sense, I wonder if Tribune Broadcasting had a thing for using TVbD as its client? Though KTLA 5 used LoConte Goldman Design and Linda Kane for its news opens & graphics.
  6. Also prior to that, Steve Ramsey was news director at KFMB-TV San Diego before coming to WGN-TV in Chicago (which was also a national superstation back then). You meant a client with TVbD (Television by Design).
  7. Well KCAL-TV in Los Angeles had a similar talent bump to that of WGN's, but with a different graphics output.
  8. Tough one?, eh. Now do you know which motion graphics design agency did the 1997 WGN News graphics?, the late Steve Ramsey who was WGN-TV's news director at the time had passed away 17 years ago. These graphics were inspired by those used at WGN Sports and were likely done by the same company.
  9. Well Adobe no longer supports Flash Player on any of their sites (effective at the end of 2020).
  10. Yep, ASCAP lists it as a Chris Crane theme. KTNV in Las Vegas also used the theme with added guitar riffs.
  11. I wonder which motion graphics agency did the 1995 WPIX 11 News at Ten graphics? (First with the updated "11" logo)
  12. WHOI in Peoria also used a version of TVbD's famous "Balls and Walls" package as well (prior to late 1998).
  13. Do you know which graphics agency did the 1997 KCAL 9 News/Prime 9 News graphics? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iGRxfMoIRbo
  14. Any idea as to who did the 1998 KING-TV "K5 News" graphics?, I assume those graphics debuted in May that year when KING 5 had its logo italicized in preparation for their 50th anniversary.
  15. Well WESH was Pulitzer-owned back then (Hearst-Argyle brought all the Pulitzer-owned stations and properties by 1998 with the deal being finalized later that year), and according to a description in another YouTube video "Pulitzer had a thing for John Christopher Burns as its graphics client" so its presumably a jcbD package.
  16. Also WPBN/WTOM 7&4 Cadillac/Traverse used a variation of TVbD's famous "Balls and Walls" package, I'm not sure if they used the Media General look when they used Counterpoint as their news package (1998-99)? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk0HeMq3jG0
  17. I wonder who did the WESH 1997 NewsChannel 2 graphics?, considering the fact that it was a carbon copy of WTVJ NBC6 graphics (which was done by Novocom) at the same time. Though most of the Pulitzer-owned stations relied on jcbD Design (jacob christopher burns Design) for their news graphics and station look. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GcKMmycaOk
  18. Any idea as to who did the KGTV 1994 News Theme? (The theme screams Late 90s)
  19. Any idea as to who did the WBRE NBC28 news graphics in the late 90s, or was in done in-house? Despite the fact that it used the Background template used by some NBC affiliates at the time (As well as the WMGM NBC40 news open around the time). WBRE's open is clocked here at 25:16-25:55 It was sometime during the Summer of 1998 when WBRE-TV switched news music packages from Gari's "The One & Only" to "Image News" (which was more common with the Hearst-Argyle stations at the time) and got new graphics, one video from May 19th that year showed the old graphics and music being used. Another from later on in the year (August 27th) showed the new graphics and theme used.
  20. Any idea as to who did the pre-1998 WEWS graphics?, it lasted until they got rid of the longtime "Circle 5" logo (which lasted for over 30 years) and replaced it with a new logo and graphics done by Novocom. They debuted the Novocom graphics around late April 1998. But according to a comment on YouTube, they kept the 1995 set until it was replaced in October that year.
