Apparently WITI was one of the very last stations in the country still using Opus, the homebrew newsroom software that Tribune scraped together during bankruptcy.

 

iNEWS may be a time warp back to 1995, but I guess at least it gets the job done.

After seeing it for the first time online nearly 15 years ago, they're finally using the "Kitebox" logo on at least the mic flags.

No description available.

 

They're looking pretty good. Waiting for the weather graphics to get updated to match...

Right they’re still on the last weather graphics. And that logo uses the new font and everything. 

Here’s a better look.......

They should've gotten the three-sided horizontal flags similar to what Fox 11 have in LA. 

 

Also, going back to that 6pm vid from last night, Is the vamp music (after the open) is one of the themes from Arnold's Extreme? So, this is a modern-day Magnum, huh?

The 6 seems so clean without the searchlights. However, I’m getting WTVJ vibes off that 6 instead of WBRC and XETV’s 6 instead.

Not quite as jarring of a transition as previous ones, since the music was already Stephen Arnold's Beyond. Also, the majority of the visual "quirkiness" of WITI was excised when they implemented the Tribune/WDAF graphics package.

They occasionally still have a Magnum sting pop up here and there (mainly during the overnight rundown on WakeUp), and on the overnight news replay, the 'previously recorded' flag still is from the pre-WDAF graphics, along with a T&T bug during some live news events.

 

ETA - The late night newscast replay has the pre-WDAF T&T design wedged into the new graphics...along with an oddly-kerned Fox logo (note the 'X') which suggests they had to jerryrig the new logo design into the old 'FOX6 News/FOX6 Milwaukee/FOX6NOW.com' carousel logo template.
