I find it weird that the former Nexstar stations have switched to the new layouts, but WTHR and WBNS remain status quo for now.

New website and, apparently, a new logo for WQAD. See for yourself.

That new logo for WQAD, if it's actually what they'll be using OTA, looks uninspired.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if they do use that logo full time

Maybe, but the current logo was in dire need of some kind of update.

They could at least put the eight inside a box or something...to keep some continuity from the last logo design.  They could've done better.

I agree with you ryan. But the new logo somewhat looks good and reminds me of WCPO and their new logo.

Seems basic. Not bad but not amazing. 

 

Maybe the wrong forum for this but million dollar question. Does Tegna drop the "Local" branding from WATN and WOI I know that was a Nexstar thing. Guess we will find out in the coming days and weeks.

They definitely will. It doesn't comport with their branding policies. ABC24.com redirects to LocalMemphis.com currently. So ABC24.com will become the root domain. WeAreIowa.com may remain the same, but it could redirect to ABC5Iowa.com as well, to align closer to Tegna's branding standards.

That's a most definite as using Local 'Channel Number' as branding isn't so much of a thing anymore except for maybe a handful of TV stations these days. They'll most likely be re-branded as WATN 24 and WOI 5 on the non-news side of things. As for newscasts, a return to the generic "Channel 5 News" or "News 5" branding would probably be the most logical direction WOI to go at this point. WATN may require some "creativity" to say the least as a means of moving ratings in the right direction.

On a side note, WOITV.com re-directs to WeAreIowa.com, so that should give you an idea on what direction they might be going.

Or maybe bring back "Eyewitness News" for both WOI and WATN. ABC 5 (WOI-TV/DT) carried the Eyewitness News name from 2001-06 and (WATN) ABC 24 also carried it as well from 2000-10 back when they were WPTY.

the ratings will surely surge under the eyewitness news brand....

 

nothing better than a 70's gimmick to bring the viewers in...

TEGNA mandate requires the use of the PSIP in all branding. So it's most certainly either ABC 5 or WOI 5. So either they pickup WOI5.com or they keep ABC5Iowa.com as the root. The latter is cheaper.

WLBZ is a semi-satellite of WCSH. I think they still maintain separate IDs.

This is not correct. Please make better posts.

Yo, let's calm down.

 

Sure, channel numbers are useful for most stations. But not all of them.

 

A good local brand is decided by figuring out what has brand equity and will resonate with viewers. Obviously, in Charlotte and Austin, that hasn't been a channel number for the Tegna stations in a long time.
