  1. So designers should keep note to not use it? And ditch channel numbers altogether?
  2. This doesn’t look like ‘change’ to me. It still looks like an American parody news outlet from the mid-2000s, to be honest
  3. Recently, Singapore’s Mediacorp gave new logos and general (non-news) graphics to its local-“national” channels Channel 5 (English) and Vasantham (Tamil). But as I watched a Vasantham newscast, I noticed something was odd. Unlike Western news music which always seemed to be in major key or atonal (WHDH) this one was unusually dark. https://youtu.be/CF3bxqH71Ds
  4. I really thought you guys were talking about association football (FIFA) from the title. But anyways, it’s just the standard over gratuitous 3D that people hate and no one does anything about, but here it looks decidedly…average.
  5. The product is still OK for this market, but dang do these graphics suck. It just gives a weird response to “what decade are we in?”
  6. Another option: let the networks jointly gobble up Tegna. That way, they can more quickly obsolete the network-affiliate model.
  7. Well then, known commodities suck. Add a little bit of mystery. There’s a reason why it’s “The National” rather than “The National News” on CBC.
  8. CBS would just go to WUPA. We were discussing the rationale behind removing CBS references from WANF.
  9. The thing with DMAs is that Nielsen has basically stopped publishing rankings every year. The FCC is looking for a replacement metric as of now.
  10. Nielsen DMAs basically no longer exist, so I think we would now have to go off by metro area population. The old Meredith package was based off of WOIO’s, but first they need to fix their VHF/encoding issues and potentially drop a few subchannels before anyone will be convinced to watch WOIO to get new graphics.
  11. WGCL/WANF switches from CBS to NBC if that happens? Yes, I know that is pure speculation, but it's what WRAL did, and Gray doesn't have too much to lose now they ditched the CBS branding.
  12. For this (Nightly News at 10pm) to work, the West Coast edition as seen on KNBC and KNSD would need to be scrapped and the regular version aired on time-delay. It would integrate nicely thanks to those two stations having 11pm local newscasts.
  13. Hothaus won. Death to the Gray graphics hub!
  14. Now could they consider moving Nightly News to 10? That would make everybody, the viewers and the affiliates (aka O&O management) happy.
  15. It seems pretty clear that Gray indeed does have a new graphics department, but I will admit that is pure speculation and we would need someone to officially address this.
  16. Wth. As if one merger wasn’t enough. If we all just watched BBC, CBC or PBS maybe the private companies would actually start to compete and not just M&A to one monolith.
  17. It’s just “19 News” now, with “Cleveland’s CBS 19” as it’s general brand, thanks to him.
  18. Because The National airs at 10 and American/Canadian work culture isn't too different?
  19. They probably should air it at 10 and make it hourlong, and they already replay it at 10 on NBC News Now. Doing so would guarantee a monopoly on national news at this time. They sell shows to themselves?
  20. Now leaving Cox with fewer stations, I guess this will give them additional leverage against the broadcasters which have filed to deny.
  21. However, I still think that whatever new “O&O package” comes out will be extremely similar to this one, especially now it’s seeing more use on-air and not just online.
  22. The now-garbage 2016 graphics has reached the beginning of the end. Good riddance. I wonder how WJZ will look like with this.
  23. Chris Crane? But yes, no doubt this is a custom theme.
  24. I think Nexstar has stopped offering NewsNation to network affiliates. WCMH (in my locale) has been airing NBC's coverage since the hearings began.
