  1. I noticed cbssports.com is using a new logo for its header (replacing the old “boxed” logo). Possibly a sign of new graphics for the Super Bowl?
  2. Interesting. I’m in San Diego (Cox cable) and it still only shows 8-11pm. I’m sure it will be updated. Thanks for checking!
  3. Also, is anyone else creeped out by the CBS eye in this shot?
  4. That’s correct. But I was under the impression that they’re trying to compete more with CNN/MSNBC/FNC (which broadcast live) than the Big 3 nightly newscasts. My program guide still only shows 8-11pm PT, but maybe that will change. But yes, it’s possible that they would have an updated western edition.
  5. Is it against the CW brand/style guide to recolor the CW bug to gold? I’ve seen XETV (before they lost the CW affiliation) with a blue CW logo, but I can’t think of another example... But yes, they should ditch the yellow and just stick with gold. They could do a gold on black or black on gold with the headers to keep the theme going.
  6. Was scrolling through my program guide and noticed that NN won’t be broadcast live in the Pacific time zone (airs at 8pm PT). I don’t understand why they would tape-delay it if they’re trying to compete with the cable news channels, which offer live news.
  7. I understand they’re going for a bold and unique look. But there’s just way too much black, which makes the graphics too harsh on the eyes. It’s like the original graphics were modified using MS Paint and someone had way too much fun with the paint bucket tool and filled everything with black. Inverting the black to white and white to black would make the graphics 100000000x better, in my opinion.
  8. Looks like the call letters and the ABC logo are practicing social distancing.
  9. Too bad Q13 has to switch to new graphics. IMHO, the current Trib graphics are one of the best-looking graphics packages.
  10. I used to be one of the haters of these graphics when they first came out, but, I gotta admit, they have grown on me (including the music) the more I see them on KGTV. Even that speech bubble thing doesn’t bother me as much anymore.
  11. Remember when they had those beautiful Renderon graphics?? This looks really sad compared to those.
  12. This is like the bastardized version of their old graphics. Kinda looks cheap. That ticker is ugly. The font clashes with the rest of the look. That “FOX 5 NEWS SO San Diego” banner looks out of place. And what’s with those rounded blue bars on the sides of that banner? Barf. They seriously need to ditch “SO San Diego.” It’s so late 2000s. The logo would be 100 times better without that white border around it. Honestly, if they weren’t gonna go with a completely new look, they didn’t have to mess with the previous graphics. Still better than
  13. Back to the chopper discussion... Does KGTV still use Chopper 8 footage, or do they have their own chopper again? I’m asking, because I saw a new Sky 10 graphic (in that old-CNN-ish box to the left of the L3s) with an animated chopper.
  14. That speech bubble is one of the most stupid-looking things I’ve ever seen in news graphics.
  15. Nice and clean. Much much much better than the previous graphics.
