  1. Liking the new set from what has been seen. However, nothing will beat the former set (specially during its first years). It looks like NBC News is trying to do the best to unify all the visual styles of its new set to have something of an Art Deco-like style, which has been already implemented over at Studio 1A across the street. However, the look they developed for MSNBC reflects better these attempts (it doesn't work at 1A because it is a mess of things which have been constantly changed since 2013). The best part of the set is, with no doubt, the entrance zone which shows virtual portraits
  2. Right-wing pundit Piers Morgan, known for unsuccessfully replacing Larry King at CNN, and for its stint at ITV's Good Morning Britain, which took in a more opinionated direction and increasing ratings until his resignation early this year because of unappropiate comments regarding the CBS/ITV Oprah with Meghan and Harry special, is joining Fox News. His new show, produced by News UK (which is launching an equivalent network called talkTV, based in London Bridge, and which will use resources from their radio division and newspapers to rival GB News), will launch next year and will be also broad
  3. And NBC News has revealed the name for the show... Top Story with Tom Llamas. The show debuts September 20.
  4. Many people often associate the theme from KIRO's News Out of the Box era as a composition by Gerard Schwarz. It is not. Although the Seattle Symphony recorded the theme package under Schwarz as conductor, the themes were composed by Mark Haffner, as shown in this newspaper report from the Morning News Tribune: Haffner would later compose the more traditional News Now package, used during the NewsChannel 7 era, and which had the same sonic logo as the News Out of the Box package.
  5. Really liking the new set. This proves how the Lance Schroeder-led Nexstar design team has learned from the FX sets and improved to do more professional set designs which clearly are miles away from the infamous Dalek Desk designs, and more in-line with other videowall-led sets. I hope this will be the case with other sets being designed by them (except for many of the sets for the bigger markets, which are being mostly outsourced to FX).
  6. From what I can see, it does have the new ABC logo. But the logo itself looks very poor. It looks like a scrap attempt to reposition WKBW, but it is really lacking an identity and has really a small-market vibe. Doing away with the Circle 7 would be detrimental for the future of the once-proud station. Anyway, back on track...
  7. We now have a designer... Another Nexstar/FX Design Group collaboration, as it was the case for WFLA, KRON, WREG, WNCN, WKRN and many other stations. As I told previously, these Nexstar/FX collabs have also allowed the Schroeder-designed sets to be less set-in-a-box and more in line with the FX sets, doing away with the infamous Dalek Desk and using more videowalls and elements related to each DMA and their culture, whilst retaining some cookie-cutter set elements.
  8. I am so surprised this is a Nexstar in-house design. Really surprised. That set has lots of elements inspired by the NewsNation Network set, as well as some inspiration from Clickspring/Provost. The days they began to do so set-in-a-box designs with the infamous Dalek Desk are really long away, as they learned from the designs FX made for KOIN, WFLA and KRON, and from that, they succesfully achieved up their game with their own elements. As you said, this set, along with the KHON and WJZY sets, has been the best Nexstar designers have done. I hope they do something similar at Studio 2 for WGN'
  9. I have been looking forward to the debut of the new set during this time. MSNBC does deserve a great new set and from what I have seen, it looks promising. From the sneak peeks, it has a style more in line with recent Clickspring works made for NBC, including the Nightly News studio in its first incarnation. I like the fact the multifaceted videowall with the big horseshoe extension is staying. And, I am with @TennTV1983, there is no need to have a newsroom in studio when you already an expansive space one floor up. It is sad to see newsroom designs being dispensed by videowall-led sets, but t
  10. And it has been a rocky first month for GB News, as the channel has become fodder by viewers and media alike, with its programming being beset by many technical problems, including vision and sound out of sync, poor lighting at the station's studio (designed by office design studio Morgan Lovell), sound and vision outages, and botched format changes, including moving all programming to the soft set, and dropping the Fox & Friends-like format of its morning show in favour of a more conventional style. Additionally, there have been compliants of overtalking in a negative way about taking the
  11. The logo font looks like Futura Condensed Black and not Neue Plak. It does not look bad however, it has a quite retro feel and it harkens me to the golden age of TWC. As I can see from this write-up, it looks like there will be some foes within the Fox News organization. We know that Fox commentators do what they do, but it is really good to see Fox Weather will be overseen by their news department and not their opinion department. And the response from TWC it's clearly aggressive. Let's see what will happen next.
  12. Great update of Look N!!!! It looks very good and, as said, it mixes elements of that look, Look G and the NECN graphics. I wonder if they were planned to debut for the delayed 2020 Olympics, but, honestly, they update their O&O graphics every Olympic cycle.
  13. And so it went... GB News launched last night with an hour-long show led by Andrew Neil and introducing their presenters, as well as the first edition of its opinion show Tonight Live with Dan Wootton. The launch was very messy: during most of the launch night, sound was out of sync with the picture, additionally, the studio built in their Paddington HQ suffers from bad lighting and sound problems, and their PTZ cameras were out of focus during the introduction program. Theses problems clearly came from their studio, as playout is outsourced to Red Bee Media and, otherwise, everything works fi
  14. From the Netherlands: an intro history compilation of Hart van Nederland, the tabloid/regional newsmagazine from SBS6.
  15. Indeed, it might be awful for a large-sized market, but it is OK for a medium-sized market like Little Rock. Switching to the package will also put KLRT on a par with KARK, which is one of the early adopters of the Linear Drift Nexstar NBC package. They already share a set with them and the KLRT part is fairly new, so I don't think there will be any updates to that specific part of the set (maybe updating the duratrans or LED graphics to reflect the update).
