  1. At least yes for NBC, they had a special report with Peter Alexander.
  2. Just randomly switched over to KECI and KTVM and oh wow! It seems some days ago the NBC Montana stations have finally switched to the Sinclair Mandate Graphics. Let's take a moment of silence for Look F please~ I surely have enjoyed the Look F graphics with the Sinclair Glass music. To be honest, I think they both go very well, especially for the intro part. I thought Sinclair would give an exception to NBC Montana for using their mandate graphics given how well Look F goes... but oh well, it seems Look F has dated enough to be phased out. The NBC Montana stations ha
  3. As expected, David Ushery is anchoring the 4PM news starting today. However, he anchored the 11AM news earlier today too. It seems they haven't found a replacement yet to anchor the 11AM news.
  4. To me I think it’s just an attempt to compete with KNBC-KNSD-KNTV’s lifestyle show “CA Live”...
  5. Something interesting I noticed on the 11AM news today... WMAQ played an excerpt of the Today show today, and the Today Show ticker text and time "pops" up. It "deactivates" seamlessly when they cut back to the anchor. (Pay attention to the ticker part in the video below...) This ticker is definitely not previously recorded - as implied by the time and the ticker text layer is above the Look N ticker graphic. I think it's generated automatically by their studio systems... The question is how does stations like WMAQ (and possibly other O&O stations?) handle
  6. Well to be fair, the major cable news networks (at least for MSNBC I know) didn't carry coverage past 12AM midnight...
  7. Other changes I have noticed on the TV Guide: Weekdays: Morning Joe First Look will be "cancelled" from Monday September 21, replaced by a new show (with an old name) Way Too Early with Kasie Hunt at 5 a.m ET. Weekends: New shows: MSNBC Live With Yasmin Vossoughia starting this Saturday 3-5 p.m. ET. American Voices With Alicia Menendez starting this Saturday 6-8 p.m. ET. The Week With Joshua Johnson starting this Saturday 8-10 p.m. ET. No more Kasie DC starting this Saturday.
  8. Just switched to KPLC to check in and it seems they’re off air with a blue screen and a ticker.
  9. NBC News NOW has been simulcasting "MSNBC International" at 9PM tonight to cover the protests across the state, which is essentially MSNBC but the commercials are replaced with its own trailers. Which platform is this "international" variant available? Is it like made for viewers in Canada because I don't see other cable providers from other countries carrying MSNBC...
  10. Seems like MSNBC is dropping the “NBC News” branding for daytime newscasts in the last few days. They’ve been using this “MSNBC Live” sting graphic when returning from commercial breaks.
  11. Last night's NBC Nightly News with Jose Diaz-Balart ( on the east coast feed) had some technical difficulties at the start of the program. The title sequence failed to roll out, Jose readed a couple of headlines and started the first story right away. The old version of the NN logo was aired throughout the first portion of the program before the commercial break. I was doing some recording test and accidentally stumbled across this on NBC 4 New York (WNBC). You'll see the technical difficulties exclusive on the east coast feed and the station cutting to the network feed
  12. Here's the intro of the "Main News" from the "Hong Kong International Business Channel"... I'm not so sure if the theme used is from News Series 2000 Plus, but I'm very certain that the end tag of the theme sounds very similar to the "logo" of the News Series 2000 Plus...
