I guess this ends the mystery about that 3:30 WNT on KABC. “The bottom line is, ‘World News Tonight’s’ numbers belong in Disney’s Land of Make Believe.” ABC accused of playing dirty in bid to win network news war... https://pagesix.com/2018/09/25/abc-accused-of-playing-dirty-in-bid-to-win-network-news-war/
Maybe it’s WMAR or the network but I’ve noticed in the past two years or so there have been issues when there’s an ABC News Special Report whether in network or out of network programming. During the reports the five second countdown appears fine but when they roll the opening titles issues begin to appear for a few seconds. First there are lines through the image and then audio drop out. Similar issues occur when it ends - however the JIP announcement come through clear. I’m thinking these issues started when ABC pushed everything to the cloud and virtualized the playout. Where the five second countdown and JIP may be played out as files but there’s an issue when they take the “live” JPEG-2000 source from ABC’s production control room (for processing and then distribution via satellite to affiliates). It happens during recorded programs such as General Hospital in this video and in live programs such as The View. The fact that these mistakes occur during network programming make me think it’s on ABC’s end and not WMAR’s - as they likely would have no choice in carrying a SR during network time and that it occurs so far into the report.
