Uploading the 9 AM open.

Any reason you have to do a double post everytime you upload something? You don't have to give us a 5-minute warning! Just do it and put in a single post.

Does anyone else think the 7 logo does not go with the new(ish) ABC logo? I see this with so many stations across the country now. Why don't they do something like this? (please excuse my poor photoshop abilities)

What you made is nice but I have no problem with the current logo.

Even in its weakest form (KGO, like 3 years ago), the circle 7, while overused, cannot be topped or replaced.

I also noticed Heather is now doing traffic in front of webcams now instead of just showing it and then returning to her after.

 

 

Yes, Heather's in it! I wonder if any other O&O's have traffic in their morning opens? Charlie in my opinion says her name a little funny, maybe because I'm not used to it.

I know WLS and WPVI do. And your right, he says Heather's name higher pitched than the others.

Do we know what her arrangement is? I wonder if she's still employed by Metro/Shadow Traffic contracted by WABC, or if she's just been hired by WABC outright.

She's probably a WABC employee now if they added her to the opens. I tried looking for her bio on 7online but it looks like they've rearranged everything. They tried to (unsuccesfully) sort the bios by anchor and weathercaster team then the reporters and sports anchors look at first like they're in order of first name... but then they're not.

It seems to me that they have officially dropped the "7"(storm watch 7 etc..) branding and gone with "ALERT"(commuter alert, accuweather alert..) branding which seems over dramatic and unnecessary. Example: just now they did a Health ALERT and all the story was is how coffee can make you tired. I really don't think that's an "alert"

"Health Alert" has been a regular segment on the 11pm news for a few years now.

This morning Michelle was presenting an emotional story about a group of boys standing up for a peer who was being bullied. She got choked up and Phil jumped in to finish the piece. Did anybody happen to record the moment, or find it online?
