KFMB Slow Death Thread

Recommended Posts

Wow and I thought KRON was bad using tape to hold their flags together.

 

Honestly this is the worst design KFMB has ever created for a mic flag. They should’ve kept the CBS Eye and added NEWS or go for the 3 sided triangle route saying NEWS 8

Very stupid and short-sighted. The CBS eye should have never been removed from their on-air branding.

 

My guess is they probably didn't have a mic flag with the CBS eye, so thus this "creation", unless they plan to go back to that logo...

Back to the chopper discussion... Does KGTV still use Chopper 8 footage, or do they have their own chopper again? I’m asking, because I saw a new Sky 10 graphic (in that old-CNN-ish box to the left of the L3s) with an animated chopper.

Yes. There's only one chopper in the market, which is owned and operated by Total Traffic. Any footage is then sent to every station that is party to the contract. I believe KFMB still pays the most, so the CBS 8 logo is (was?) on one side and AM760 logo on the other and they could direct the chopper where/when to go.

It hit the network, an anchor at KPIX and now KFMB.

KFMB is launching a new local show at 4pm on 9/14, called "The Four". Hosted by Carlo, Karlene and Heather. 

CBS Evening News is moving to 5:30pm from 6pm.

Neda has been filing in Weather for Heather in the mornings. Do we assume as permanent?

I'm pretty sure Neda's post is permanent. I think the screens are part of a new set that was built for The Four and not the screens behind the desk.

You're correct.

Question: is Jenny doing traffic on the chroma key or on the 3x9 setup?

 

they can expand their set and remove the chroma key unless they are planning to use it as a virtual set in some stand ups

Wonder what happened to that new set Carlo talked about a few months after Tegna took over? The set still looks good, but they should start looking at a replacement especially if they want more flexibility with the types of shows they're doing.

 

The set works  best if they had the traditional, sit-down type of newscast. Since Tegna took over, they have made it an emphasis to be more mobile and more focus on social media and it makes the set look cramped.  The new set pieces (i.e. extra monitor wall, and more tables/chairs) just add to that already cramped space.

Jenny is still doing traffic from the chroma key. I doubt they'd get rid of the chroma key as they use it a lot and for commercial production.
