At least this graphics package isn't around anymore! Hallelujah!
 

 

I would have to say this package did grow on me over time.  All the tablets and buttons seemed off-putting at first, but the way the fonts were treated, you knew this was a jcbD package.  (and it may have been the last one).

It did look a little better on WKRG, but the fact they kept the old music was off-putting, unlike WVTM who jumped on the "Canvas" bandwagon....

 

It was short lived as Media General wanted WIAT back in the LIN merger, and Hearst made their mark on WVTM, for the better.  This was a fancy shade of lipstick on a pig at the time when Media General plunged WVTM into 4th place and brought their market share to near-WBMG levels....

 

At least the ugliness on WIAT can't be blamed on Media General.  That happened under LIN and Nexstar put them back on the right track as CBS 42, and once again share the same package as WKRG.

I don't know if this was previously mentioned but WATN in Memphis has gotten the new ABC package. It won't last long though because TEGNA. WATE in Knoxville got the package awhile back as well.

 

That only leaves WKRN in Tennessee to make the switch. They're still using whatever WCMH/WFLA have or had.

 

On the WISH pack front, at some point WIVB in Buffalo dropped their longtime Renderon pack for that one, a blue version.

WJET in Erie still doesn't have the package. Last I heard, they don't plan on getting a new look (which they could use). But that could've changed, of course. Sister station WFXP got the Nexstar FOX graphics in fall 2017.
