NBC News Now Live (M-F 3p-11p)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like NBC News Now has launched. Live Monday - Friday 3p-11p, according to the slide on today's live stream.

As an aside, I like the graphic design NBC News is taking online and for its apps and I wouldn't mind seeing it used on-air.

It’s interesting and I’m pretty sure I’ve seen some of the packages before (the abortion one but it looks like it came from Left field). I’m not a fan of the correspondent selfie style of reporting when there are crews available such as Hallie Jackson in Tokyo from their hotel balcony. I under stand the Ali Arouzi package as he was on the street in Tehran. It seems to be a lot of packages with quick “News in Brief” headlines so far.

Watching more I think it’s just a pre produced where the host David Gura so far just seems like he  recorded a bunch of links. I can’t see them putting up with standing around to introduce one six minute package for another ten minute package. Maybe for the news in brief it’s live and they’re on standby.

 

Just watching the top of the hour for the second hour it appears they are just replaying what was aired before at 3pm. The same packages are teased and there’s no mention of being live.

Also, the "Now" in the bug is no longer red - that may designate when it's live, kind of what ABC News Live does.

So far...it's pretty good.  I don't like David Gura, though.  He's really boring.  I wish there would be more of the headlines & stuff happening right now to get caught up, not a bunch of long packages.  I think they should keep the longer packages.  They are very interesting and engaging.  I like the set and the graphics are a huge step up from what they had before.

 

But, I've only watched for about 20 minutes so I don't have much to judge, lol!

There are plenty of options available that one doesn't have to hold their phone in their hand. Hallie could have propped the phone up on something. Be inventive!!  Ali should have been inside somewhere. Gura is about as bad as Simone (Whatever her last name is). 'And now the news headlines..........................................................................................................................Briefly'. 

 

Simone should have been more professional and wore some pants. Overall, D+.

The anchor blocking is tired and bland. Thought I was watching a CNBC market update for a moment when I saw the over the shoulder logo. Being an insert studio I guess you only have so many options. At least Signal utilized other NBC properties like Studio 1A or the 4th floor newsroom (similar in style to Snapchat's Stay Tuned). Has me wondering what's at work in studio 3B.

I watched some more today and they've already improved their product overall, IMO.

I really like the set but I don't like how the hosts crammed into the corner. They need to move around a bit.

NBC NEWS NOW UPDATE: Alison Morris- Formerly of WNYW Fox 5 has moved back to NBC

Reported by Variety (article) https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/nbc-news-alison-morris-anchor-1203257274/

Alison started on air yesterday 7/1/19. This is a good pick up for NBC's streaming service. Great journalist.

She's no stranger to NBC as she's worked out of CNBC Europe and WSJ reporter out in Paris.
