KFMB Slow Death Thread

Recommended Posts

14 hours ago, TVnews said:

 

The virtual sets (and all major graphics) are made at TEGNA graphics headquarters and distributed to stations to use (and they are expected to use them). For big events, like the Super Bowl, they'll make a package that includes lower thirds, over the shoulders and sets. Notice that the CBS eye is missing from the set so it can be used on TEGNA's NBC, ABC, etc affiliates.


Stations can request customized sets, but they're only allotted so much time with the graphics team so most just use the generic looks. 

KFMB may still have a bit of leeway if they still have an in-house graphics department. If they've already (unfortunately) been eliminated and they're forced what they get from Denver, then my original statement is moot.

 

I personally am a fan of virtual sets, but that one is a tad cheesy.

If I ever become King of the FCC I will require TV stations with virtual sets to make the "sets" viewer select able.

 

Let the consumer pick his  own cheesy set.

 I think they eliminated the in-house graphics department when the TEGNA graphics launched last year.

Not yet.. But that brings up some good points:

• Will they combine CBS8.com and TheCWSanDiego.com like KING/KONG, KUSA/KTVD, KBNT/KJAC, KREM/KSKN or WWL/WUPL? My guess is yes, as I could not find any Tegna duopolies that had separate websites.

• If so, will they use CBS8.com, KFMB.com, or News8SD.com? Heck, news8.com is for sale if they want to shell out the cash.

KTVD now has a separate website again as of mid January. (My20denver.com)

Why the “My” branding when they dropped that years ago, I wonder?

I can imagine the CW San Diego, 100.7 San Diego, and AM 760 websites all looking similar to that, with the tie in to News8.

I Think it's because they already owned the URL.

On this Carlsbad, CA edition of "Whose News Van Is It Anyway?" I see rust (grey hair), something Tegna despises... 

 

@Eat News I found your home.

What do you think the odometer reading is?

So is some hobo living in old "22" at Ponto State Beach?

 

I hope he surfs.

I did not intend for that video to go live yet. How do I delete a video from a post?

No markings on that van? Otherwise, it looks like a rapist van with a dented rear bumper with an inverted honeycomb.
