New WOIO (and possibly another Gray) Graphics Package

KFDA I noticed has new graphics.  They aren't quite like WOIO... During the weather segment, the only thing really left over from Raycom are the circles used to display the temps on the maps...

Looks like from the gray graphics hub with some recoloring done

Agreed. I am happy that Gray is letting stations have control (for the most part) of their look.

Several Gray legacy stations have other colors. Indeed it looks to be at full Gray looks now.

I know it's small market but that news writing is terrible! Almost as if the anchor is reading the press release itself. Doesn't help that she sounds robotic and bored.

Amarillo is a “fresh out” market - kiddos right out of college. I had a couple of college mates who started there right out of school (and then moved up and out after a year or two) - especially on the weekend, where crews are very thin.

 

i’d just chalk it up to lack of experience.

WMC-TV in Memphis switched over to new blue-and-white graphics this evening. Appears to be another variant of the Gray look many of its stations have been receiving.

Just caught the final seconds of WMC's 5PM and saw the same thing. Here are a couple photos.

 

I hope the custom backgrounds on the weather graphics aren't done with (even though they appear to be, if the 7-day is any indication). I always thought using local photos was a neat idea.

Unfortunately Livestream has been stuck airing a 7:57am Today news update from July 4th, no one can't record a open unless you live in the Memphis area.

I'm afraid I won't be of any help with recording an open. But some videos from the 5PM have been uploaded to the app/website.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the font is Helvetica. And the lower thirds really need some help differentiating between the headline and the secondary text.

 

(Accidentally posted this before with "hide post" selected and for the life of me can't seem to undo it. My bad.)

What a downgrade. They really need tightening up on the type size, placement and choice.

If you'll pardon the poor quality, here are some pictures and video from the 10PM. In addition to Helvetica on the regular graphics, I think that's Arial on the weather graphics. Also not a fan of how unnecessarily blocky and screen-clogging the weather scroll is. As you can see though, the rest of the weather graphics rely heavily on the old Raycom look.

It does have that logo flyover that many Gray stations do.

Am I the only one that thinks they missed a good opportunity to reintroduce the steamboat whistle? (And steamboat footage in the back of the 5 logo?)

After a quick email, the stream is working again and with that my follow TVNT'ers, I present to you: WMC Action News 5.

It's better than the Raycom look - never thought that look was good to begin with, let alone aged well.

I could go either way on this one.  It's definitely a Gray package, but it looks decent and doesn't seem too derivative or too "plastic-looking" versus some of the other Gray efforts.

Can't wait to see how Gray is gonna do WBTV honestly.

I'd agree with WBTV rollout.  Plus I'd be interested in seeing how Gray will do WVUE and WBRC as well.  Also if Gray plans for those 2 Fox stations to switch to "Beyond" music package with graphics makeover.

I was thinking the same - I wonder if the WBTV package would be similar to the WOIO package?
