TEGNA's New Graphics?

Recommended Posts

Add First Coast News to the board. (The first ABC station to use this package, co-shared with NBC).

 

That music sounds even worse when it’s trying to be serious.

Oh god I forgot FCN had a virtual set.

It's almost the stuff of parody.

I just saw a promo on KSDK that had the French Tegna music.

 

Only a matter of time before they make the switch.

 

Looks like KSDK switched in the past couple days

At least they kept their V/O for the intros, unlike KING and KUSA.

I noticed that the USA Today graphics are still used for school closings for now.

 

On a semi-related note, is KUSA still using Roger Thompson? I think they still use him.

 

And you obviously based your signature on mine (which is based on ChesapeakeTV's)!

KARE. Check.

 

It looks like they were trying to go the the route of having a closings ticker and shrinking the program feed. But it looks like they failed as part of the standard ticker was covered up and there was a black border around the program.

Based on the NewscastStudio montage and the image above, the bug changes colors. Unlike the last package, it doesn't seem to mean anything in relation to the story. While we knew the USA Today color coding would be gone, I don't know the rhyme or reason of this. Also, while the earlier 7-day image has the same day draped in the purple, a check on their website showed today in orange. The orange could be a morning thing, but it's hard to tell.

 

So, I have since found out that while the news stories aren't color coded like in the old Gannett package, the yellow-orange-purple-blue IS set for the show time. Yellow/Orange is for the daytime shows, Purple are the Evening shows, and the blue is for the late news. The weather highlight color will also follow the same color pallet pattern.

KPNX's implementation on their 10PM is doing the graphics a bit of solid justice--the more aggressive music probably helps that.

why did Tegna commission music just for their NBC stations?

They commissioned music for all their stations. So far, only NBC stations have it.

I did check WBIR-TV for just a moment at 5pm today and I can now confirm that the new TEGNA French music is being used there. They used it in the tease and open.

NNNNNNOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! As long they don't get rid of "You are watching WBIR-TV, Channel 10 Knoxville. The news starts now."

 

On a side note: I really hate the new websites. The livestream link never comes on time, and don't get me started on the video pausing when you switch to another tab.

I love that line. The VO artist who does that line does it so perfectly!
