Might be a glitch in preparing to possibly launch new graphics, but WFIE has had this extra time/temp on the lower right corner of the screen at the start of their 10:00 news tonight. Disappeared after the first break when the Gray weather ticker appeared.

I think that the extra time/temp on the extreme lower right is actually from the Today Show's Namedropper ticker.

Don't know when this happened, but WHSV is now using the blue version of WTVY's current graphics. Still using Stephen Arnold's "This Is The Place" music package.

I don't get it. They switched graphics that quick after getting the last one? 🤔🤷‍♂️

Why do people continue to watch this guy? He's such a sleaze, especially after he ripped off my channel (and continues to do so).

Anyways, here's a version without the first three seconds cut off, and no Bandicam watermarks either to boot.

WFIE has moved to a new set and is teasing improvements with a "lighting upgrade" in the studio, but more so in terms of graphics, they have updated the Gray ticker to more frequent use and some of their in-house commercials look to be featuring some of the elements that KFVS, WSAV, and WXIX have in their new graphics. Only time will tell...

KFVS has a different graphic pack than WSAZ (I believe that's what you meant) and WXIX.

Yes, WSAZ. I'm seeing elements of both packages is what's weird. 

Out of the ex-Raycom stations, that will leave...

WTVM, WVUE, KAIT, KCBD, KSWO, KAUZ, KGMB/KHNL left to switch

 

Almost there 😎

WFXG is also another holdout to switch graphics but they are owned by Lockwood tho so they'll have to wait a while there

For the news operations they run themselves, Lockwood has basically left them as they were from whoever they acquired them from.  KTEN may be the only exception, and their only non "Gray castoff" station they bought from someone else with a major affiliation.

 

Case in point, in Charlottesville, VA, where their stations still have a Gray package, while their current Gray station, WVIR recently got one as well!

WILX News 10 in Lansing /Jackson market updated their logo to a red box from the previous blue, also transitioned to the First Alert Weather branding. The graphics look similar to the WAVE/WMBF look. They even did a whole news article about their changes.

Ugh! Either straighten the 10 or italicize the WILX. It drives my OCD crazy 😂😂😂
