WWOR - My 9 News

Recommended Posts

I'm watching the news right now.. It seems like they got rid of the countdown clock and are doing it more like a traditional newscast.. Anyone know when this started?

Not sure how recent this is but this is the first time I'm noticing it...

 

The "my9" bug that appears during syndicated programming is simpler -- not that My Network TV logo. I also can't find the old logo on my9tv.com (or at least the front page... I didn't search any further).

Just saw it. Looks nice but the website tag line below it is completely illegible

Chasing NJ still on My9. The reality show camera work on the segments is so unprofessional for a news show.

What did they do with the old Secaucus newsroom anyway? Retain it for Chasing NJ?

Maybe they use it to produce NJ news for WNYW, but I'm not sure.

Just curious, what's Brenda Blackmon and Harry Martin up to these days? And isn't Brenda supposed to produce "specials" for WWOR? I haven't seen her at all (but I don't watch WWOR at all anyway).
