  1. I noticed that WLUK has been incorporating other elements of the new graphics package into newscasts. I'm surprised how long it's taken them to get the rest of the package implemented, and I'm curious if they drop Aerial when they do.
  2. I watched at least a portion of all four games this weekend. Pat McAfee needs to be part of more NFL broadcasts. It sounds like ESPN is including them very similarly to how they incorporated Booger McFarland into the broadcast during the 2018 season. Even though he's on the sideline he can still chime in any time. It works much better, in my opinion, because Pat is more entertaining and has more insightful things to say. I personally enjoyed the ESPN presentation better. The FOX broadcast did feel like a regular NFL broadcast. That's not a bad thing, but that's also not a good thing. I'm not a fan of Curt Menefee in the booth, but it could be worse. The new rules are awesome. Even though New York was up 20 pts on Tampa Bay it didn't feel like Tampa was completely out of it because of the 3 pt conversion rule.
  3. TMJ4 dropped the “Today’s” from their logo on Twitter.
  4. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/1/22/breaking-first-on-ftvlive-seattle-gm-headed-to-la Looks like you're right!
  5. You were so preoccupied with whether or not you could, you didn't stop to think if you actually should.
  6. Not going to lie. I sat here waiting for images to load before I saw your note.

    Out & About

    Knight Rider's slightly unhinged cousin?
  8. I wish HLN would do more non-political news as a contrast to CNN. Or that CNN would stop being so fixated on 24/7 Trump coverage.
  9. CNN is utilizing HLN as a "CNN2" today. Impeachment coverage on CNN. Trump News Conference coverage on HLN, complete with CNN anchors/reporters and CNN graphics.
  10. I'm leaning towards no new set. I don't think they would have replaced as many graphics as they did if they were replacing it.
  11. WBAY is working on a new set. In addition, they rebranded StormCenter 2 as "2 First Alert" weather.
  12. I was just wondering the other day how many years it would take for their set to be Grey-ified. I wonder if they're going to move the current set into the auditorium while they rebuild?
  13. WLUK in Green Bay appears to be the next to get the new Sinclair graphics. The weather graphics have been switched over, but the rest of the newscast is unaffected. I'm curious if WLUK will keep Aerial as their theme or if they'll end up with the standard Sinclair music.
  14. Brian Anderson is a great choice. I was hoping CBS would utilize him for more NFL games, but that didn't come to be.
  15. This actually won't be terrible in Green Bay. They play again Thursday night on FOX, play again on 10/6 on FOX. After that they're on ESPN*, CBS, NBC, CBS. *Although, WLUK is the home of local Monday Night Football telecasts.
