Scripps - General Discussion

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The Lighthouse's flagship outlet celebrated a milestone this week. WCPO celebrated its 70th anniversary.

 

And throughout their newscasts this past week, they've replaced its main bug for its old 60s "9" logo for this occasion.

The lighthouse is a nod to our parent company’s motto @EWScrippsCo “Give light and the people will find their own way.”

 

 

More like, "Give us a successful media property and we'll figure out how to destroy it."

Looks like most of the former Cordillera stations have the new website platform now.

Here’s WXYZ’s new 11pm teaser graphics... the cities scroll at the bottom. There’s a cityscape “next on 7 action news at 11” graphic that comes before this, I’ll try to grab a shot of it. Maybe this is the direction Scripps will go later this year?

Reminds me a bit of the Limerick graphics and the former TEGNA package.

I learned that the CSD’s have been shown the new package at a recent meeting. Apparently some of them tried to take pictures and they were made to delete them. Still no estimated launch date.

I see a mix of Tegna and Raycom (Gray) influence in it. Looks pretty good

2011 called. It wants its graphics back. No way this is going to be the ‘new’ package.

So we're pretty certain their is a new look coming? What about music? Kind if tired of Inergy.

I haven’t heard of new music. I would say that Inergy since pretty well used across by non-Scripps shops, they’d be pretty inclined to get a new package. Also, personally every station I’ve worked at has used Inergy and I’m tired of hearing it. 😂

Note that I said “direction”.. 2012 is when the current Scripps graphics were introduced and this paper flat look wasn’t even in then anyways... but it’s way in now...

There is a new look coming eventually. When it debuts is anyone's guess. As of right now, we have no real confirmation as to what it will look like or if there's any progress on it.

 

We know they prepared a document to send to potential design companies asking them to pitch graphics along the lines of Tegna and other similar packages.

Across between Tegna and Hearst would be nice.

How have none of you noticed the resemblance to World News Tonight? That's what I first thought of.

Screen shots are always better:

Somebody should tell them to update the computer that runs their livestream... wouldn’t want it unsupported or anything... that message disappeared when the newscast actually came on so it was only on this placeholder screen during breaks. The new graphic is also used as a headline card on monitor shots and it can turn red for breaking news.

And as soon as IT comes in, there's going to be the inevitable "No, you can't update this, you're gonna break this that and the other"...followed by the email chains with bosses CC'd when IT updates it anyway.

(Good times.)

This look is neither paper, nor flat, to this reporter’s eyes.

That whole mess all up the left side is not flat. Neither is the ugly ticker across the bottom. And the fake light shining on the bottom left corner... that’s about as non-flat as you can get.

Perhaps you have a new definition of flat you would like to share with the rest of us? It’s a damn sight flatter than:

These have 3D elements galore... where do you see a similar element in the new version? I don’t even see a single rounded edge or deep curve or anything...

But...tickers are inherently flat...and the "whole mess" on the left is something that would probably be called "layers." You can have layers of something and it still be flat. The light is effectively lip gloss.

 

If you think that's "about as non-flat as you can get," then what does that make WPTV's 2009 look? 5D?

(Oh, didn’t realize only some graphics are allowed to be non-flat.)

 

Actually... it is possible that these graphics you presented are non-flat, but so is this Scripps garbage we’re talking about too. It is in fact possible that multiple packages can have non-flat elements. Some can have more than others. But that doesn’t mean those others are now magically flat. You wanna see flat? Look at Tegna’s graphics or WISC’s graphics. That’s flat.

Knock it off. Those graphics are certainly a lot flatter than the shiny glass panels that all other Scripps graphics have.

 

That said, hasn't WXYZ had one-off topical graphics for a while now? I feel like we've been here before, wondering if some different topical graphics were a sign of things to come.

Possibly? As the years have gone by it seems like Scripps stations have been allowed some form of individual creative freedom because the look certainly isn't has cohesive as it once was. To entertain you, it makes me wonder if they're considering pulling a Nexstar and having a unique look for each affiliate. I suggest that because, again, that topical is reminiscent of World News Tonight.

They last got some in 2014 so I think wondering a full 5 years later is fair game and they were preview graphics and not topicals used regularly in newscast when going to break. That said it’s fun to have something different to look at regardless of whether it tells the future...
