WABC - 7 Eyewitness News

Recommended Posts

A possible leak of new graphics tonight at 11. It had a different lower third on the live shot and then it was partially covered by the current lower third.

 

I wish I got a photo but I was taking it in so quickly I didn't think of it fast enough. If someone wants to DVR the rerun of the news at 11, it happened pretty early in the newscast.

 

Hopefully the new opens/graphics etc.. will debut soon.

What segment/story was it? It should be up on the website a by the top of the hour.

URGENT TO DVR USERS: If anyone is able to rewind their DVR to Jim Dolan's live shot from Washington and find the apparent graphics leak, that would be appreciated for this forum! I usually can go back but my set top box won't let me...

I don't think it's any sign of new graphics. It looks exactly like the "Join the Conversation" blurb that shows up at the top of most newscasts.

Yeah- false alarm everyone... The "leaked" graphics last night weren't new, they were the graphics WABC usually uses during medical reports... Nothing new at WABC yet.

Just saw a WABC station ID that I haven't seen before... seemed similar to what the ID is now, but the might have changed the slogan- this one said "The most watched television station in the nation, you're watching Channel 7. Number one in New York."

Did anyone else see the new open for the 5pm news today? They didn't use the regular talent open- they started showing the coming stories, with headlines in the middle of the screen, and the Voiceover announced it- "Now, on Eyewitness News, *story1* *story2* Now, Eyewitness News at 5... And the show opened

Haven't seen this happen again.. Maybe it was a test of a new format?

Here is a fun new promo for Eyewitness News This Morning. Note not only does the commercial have Heather, it is basically promoting Bill and Her. I love it and am glad she is getting in the commercials and ID's now.

 

To me its just like the old "7 Minutes" commercials just with a new song. I like it a lot.

WABC added a telestrator to their helicopter. Shannon called it Skywriter 7.

 

They added that about a month ago- all three chopper reporters have been using it and calling it "SkyWriter 7." They use it to point out specifics in a wide pan shot- like to draw attention to a specific car in an accident, etc.

All of the ABC O&Os, including WABC, have updated their website video systems, to the same system as their recently updated live streams. Story videos are now in HD, and have closed captioning built in to the player, and can be enabled by clicking on the dialogue box on the lower panel of the video box.

Probably because it's easier to go back to the newsroom and do it there rather than rush back into the studio and wait for the weather breaks and then go back for a few hours until noon.
