WPRI New Set?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It appears WPRI is on temporary digs.

 

Take a look at this shot from yesterday. They are using this monitor for everything including two shots, then using the Chroma for weather.

This is the set they were using on March 22nd.

So WPRI/WNAC showed a sneak peak of the said new set, with a rebrand and new graphics. They're launching a 4pm on September 9th. They'll be called "12 News Now", and it sounds like that they're gonna drop Newsforce in favor of Aerial.

They're going with the Nexstar Fox pack, it looks like.

So, um, similar creative direction to KFOR, albeit with a worse graphics package.

Any word on how they plan to brand newscasts on WNAC/Fox Providence?

On their live stream page, it says it is News 12 Now at 10.  Set is a big improvement, graphics, better but eh.  Not sure this would siphon viewers from Sinclair's WJAR.  Content will do that.

Especially since they are paired with WNAC.  It is a good look.

My first impression was of Sinclair's WPEC logo-wise, but it's a nice upgrade of their prior logo.  I always hated the mixed case on "EYEwitness" and how the lowercase aligned with the uppercase.

 

I wish stations like WKBN would have done the same as WPRI/WNAC, since it's their CBS package that airs on WYFX's newscasts.

Overall I say it's a good upgrade for WPRI.  But I think Newsforce has a superior sound to Aerial, at least when comparing those two.

 

It's a bit odd watching them using the Fox pkg for a CBS station (notwithstanding newscasts on "Fox Providence").  But it seems to fit their branding well.

The logo/graphics are a downgrade from what they had before as far as I'm concerned. I'll never understand Nexstar's obsession with Aerial.

Did they commission Aerial? I agree, I really don't like it. Almost anything is better than Aerial.
