Congratulations to CBSN Denver. Weird that it's a Wednesday launch. Probably, for the Democratic primary in neighboring Nevada.. 

CBS O&O's left to launch CBSN:  Pittsburgh (I believe either today or early next week), Baltimore, DFW, Chicago and Sacramento.  


What about CBSN Miami? Maybe I missed its launch, but is there no plans for that?

Master Control is not Production Control. If something "goes wrong" in a Master Control hub setup, there are still engineers on either end to fix things.   It's been the "new normal" for abo

omg.. its fine. nobody watches this CBSN stuff anyway.

Where exactly would they put the setup for CBSN Miami? WFOR's main studio is relatively small to begin with, and I can't imagine they have adequate space available for an OTT operation.

They may just make like Minnesota and just do reruns of WFOR's newscasts. 

 

Both WCCO's and WFOR's current job listings don't have anything for their CBSNs.

They don't have any original newscasts, their half-hour newscasts are looped at the second half-hour, no dedicates set, not to mention they don't run at all on the weekends, just running a simulcast of the national CBSN feed.

That's how all of the CBSN's starting launching- no weekend newscasts and returning Monday at 4:30AM.  It's going to take time for them to even produce their own newscasts and be on weekends.

However, not all of the O&O's function like CBSN New York, CBSN LA, CBSN Bay Area and CBSN Boston which produce their newscasts and are live several times a day, loop their weekend newscasts and have some form of original content.

I see. Apologies for not knowing that.

I feel WFOR has the same issue as WJZ- Baltimore with inadequate studio space. This was discussed briefly a while ago with regards to WJZ's layout.  WFOR & WJZ would essentially be last to launch. CBSN Pittsburgh is on track for a launch VERY SOON. CBSN Chicago is up next after Pittsburgh with an expected mid-to late March launch.  Haven't heard too many rumblings about CBSN Sacramento since Super Tuesday is 3/3/20

CBSN Pittsburgh should probably be launching this week as the CBSN Denver press release said it would be later this month, and this is the last week of the month lol.

My guess is between Tomorrow and Thursday.

I wonder if KDKA will use the CBSN L3s and darker themes?

Those won't transfer to the on-air product. They should follow along with the rest of the other CBSNs and leave the current on-air graphics in place.

The O&Os update graphics every three-to-four years, so they're due for an update this year.

 

Plus, they've phased in updated weather graphics, and WBBM has new teases. All the writing is on the wall.

Well yeah that's true. But are they going with the CBSN package though?

I don't think they'll go with the CBSN package verbatim, but maybe a CBSN-friendly derivative of it.

CBSN Pittsburgh has decided to do a mixture of the CBSN graphics and the CBS O&O graphics. It looks interesting, and it looks like CBSN Pittsburgh doesn't have its own set yet, so it is using the main KDKA news set.

They just did a segment on the 5pm news on the launch.

Yeah it was the same one they aired at 4pm and its also on their YouTube page.

That's because CBSN Pittsburgh will consist (for now, at least) only of live KDKA newscasts and reruns, like Minnesota.

And Philly. 

I'm also kind of surprised that Pittsburgh Today Live will be streamed on CBSN Pittsburgh, per the article on KDKA's website. I honestly didn't think it would be.

Well they have to further show off where Celina Pompeani is eating that day because apparently that’s what viewers care about.

I'm watching CBSN Philly, and it's very interesting that they don't have a separate studio set up (as of yet) just for CBSN.

I also get that Philadelphia is pretty dense when it comes to finding new studio space. However, I think it would be wise enough to invest in studio space.

Some CBSN Philly observations: 2 Anchor set during AM's- Burrell & Donovan  CBSN Live 7-9AM, loops 10AM-12Noon than CBS Eyewitness News Live at 12Noon.

 

Also to add CBSN Philly and Pittsburgh are using regular O&O graphics for their broadcasts. One has to notice will an update to the CBSN graphics will be available soon for Philly and Pittsburgh.  They both do have weather graphics.

Philly has a second studio. Dunno why they didn't build a set for CBSN in there. They haven't used that space since they stopped doing the "Einstein Science" segments last year.

That studio would be perfect.. Is the 2nd studio within the main facility or is that in Downtown Philly.

Same building. It's literally right next to the news studio.

 

With 1060 now out of the building though, they could convert the space they vacated into studio space if they ever decide to move on from their now pushing 10 year old set.
