WJZ Drops Eyewitness News, Slowly Rebrands, New Logo Roll Out and New Set

Recommended Posts

I propose one of the mods blare the Chroma Cues theme on loop here on Wednesday.

 

Why?

 

It's Complete Coverage. For one last time.

 

Let's do the opposite. Take me, for example. Every time I drive by their station or see their logo somewhere, the Enforcer starts to play. I've been playing it in my head (and headphones) since the "process" began late December to daydream it into a WJZ reality. Last thing I need is for them to hold on to the current production music any longer.

We should make a slide show of the sets best moments interchanged with various graphical elements to “I Will Remember You” with Chroma Cues as a backing track.

 

My heart will go for Chroma Cues.

Because. It’s WJZ.

 

I cobbled together the “coming up” bed on mp3:

"WJZ-TV. WJZ-DT. and WJZ.COM BALTIMORE. In your community. Where you live. Now. It's Complete Coverage. It's WJZ. Maryland's News Station. This is Eyewitness News."

 

I swear to God WJZ, for the overhype this is getting (and billboards?) this better be fucking good. Otherwise, YOU FAIL and I hope your "future" fails. So, no pressure!

and billboards?

 

They normally have electronic billboards. It’s probably set to rotate through different sequences, teasing the newscast and forecast.

How in the hell Pat Garrett could read that garbage with a straight face is mind boggling.

I'm wondering what the new open will sound and look like and what they will say? Maybe...

 

"LIVE from WJZ Studios on TV Hill, this is WJZ TV News This morning".

 

Live from the WJZ Studios on TV Hill, this is WJZ TV News at noon".

 

So on and so on... I hope I don't hear in your neighborhood, in your community.

TBF, he didn’t read all of it. Until they debuted their transitional opens, A female VO always read the “WJZ-TV, WJZ-DT, and wjz.com” part.

Kind of hoping, that WJZ can keep this style open for their morning show. Also I hope that KC and the gang can keep the cube. I love the imaging work that they have done

I had a feeling that ever since their previous vice president and general manager Jay Newman retired, they were going to get a new set.

“Now, from Maryland’s News Station, WJZ News at ___ starts now.”

 

And do it just like ‘CCO.

This is going to give me nightmares. Actually, both videos will.

You ain’t see nothing til you see the Baltimore Oriole in place of the CBS eye.

The cubes have apparently been retired.

Much like the old on-air appearance of WJZ, the Orioles were certainly put to rest this year.

Thought the cube logo was done but they played an open of it this morning at 5:30. Maybe they typically use it.
