ABC News Live

Recommended Posts

Thought this warranted its own thread.  ABC News announced big changes to its ABC News Live streaming platform, including new programming anchored by broadcast talent Tom Llamas and Linsey Davis.

 

See:

and a preview of a new set (which may or may not be a product of the major TV3 renovations?):

I really like what I'm seeing here. That blue/purple/orange color scheme, the warmer set. I'm getting some NBC vibes, but in the best way.

I like what I'm seeing so far too. This could be ABC News Now V2 but even better with the right crew behind the camera, so I'm ecstatic.

My silly self first thought the set and its screens were straight up leftovers from Live with Kelly and Ryan. But they (and the in-screen graphics) look great; can't wait for its first use on air.

That was the first thing I thought. The map and the color scheme all scream NBC News to me.

I did away with paid live tv this year, so this is a welcome addition to my streaming lineup.

Here's an hour of ABC News Prime. I really like the look and feel of the newscast, they covered a lot of things, no fluff or pop culture index -- just straight news, sort of felt like vintage CNN Headline News. I also like their intro, which features ABC News logos from the past.

I'm watching tonight's show right now. It feels like an hour-long World News Tonight.

 

Emphasis on the World part, too, which is a very nice change of pace.

Excellent touch on the streaming coverage open for the Iowa Caucus on Monday. They dig into the archives (1:15) and include clips of Jennings, Sawyer, Stephanopoulos, Muir, finally cutting to Tom Llamas, who was anchoring on ABC News LIVE. It was a 2008 Gibson away from hitting all the right notes.

Getting serious 2004 WTMJ vibes from that open.
