The WTVJ look was actually done by Novocom. Not sure about the WESH version, which I'm pretty sure is a ripoff.

Well WESH was Pulitzer-owned back then (Hearst-Argyle brought all the Pulitzer-owned stations and properties by 1998 with the deal being finalized later that year), and according to a description in another YouTube video "Pulitzer had a thing for John Christopher Burns as its graphics client" so its presumably a jcbD package.

I don't know. I can't see John Christopher Burns doing a direct ripoff of another graphics package like that.

I also wonder who did the pre-1998 WGRZ graphics?, which was done before Gannett bought the station in 1997 (they had their own in-house agency known as Gannett Production Services).

Based on a comment from a YouTube video, WGRZ-TV switched to "Image News" and new graphics (similar to WXIA-TV in Atlanta at the time) Not earlier than August and not later than November of 1998.
