I have confirmed that TEGNA will be rolling out a new graphics package for all of its stations in the near future.


They are done and ready to go. It will happen soon. 
 

I haven’t seen what it looks like yet but have confirmed with sources in the know that this is happening.

 

If anyone else has more info please share.

Why are they doing this wouldn't you think it would've been revealed on the newer stations like WATN WTHR?

 

But I did do research and if they stick with the 4 year cycle then you'd be right.

It's not a complete overhaul. Non-news junkies wouldn't immediately notice a difference. It's just an evolved look for some various graphic elements. I've already seen some of the "updated" look on KGW. 

 

This is correct. It's only on full screen gfx. Minor changes, but they're definitely improvements. Bigger elements, more depth, color gradients, and some updated animations. It isn't as flat as it was.

WATN in Memphis has been using the updated look for the last couple of weeks now. I'll post a compilation on my channel later this week.

 

 

That open is radically different - I haven't seen that before. Looks good and adds a bit of excitement.

That WATN open uses two different versions of the ABC logo...  when "ABC" is by itself, note the distance between the letters and the edge of the circle...

 

Other than that, it really does look better than the version before it.

Wow, I like that a lot. Much better than the "old" open.

Don't know if these rolled out at the same as the rest of the update, but I've noticed that some stations are using a different L3 for anchors/reporters with white on whatever accent color is being used for the rest of the graphics.

KARE has switched to that. Also not sure when, but the TV panel wall behind the anchors is one big screen now as well

I am not a fan of the talent lower thirds. 
 

It’s like WSVN meets Tegna. I thought the whole point of these graphics were to NOT look like news.

I don't understand why there need to be special supers just for talent.

 

I don't think having separate L3's for anchors is the problem if it's done right. It's definitely the design in Tegna's case, as this is bordering on looking like KMSG's original set of overblown lower thirds.

 

Hearst has used separate L3's for anchors since the first diagrid look, and they work very well. It also helps that they actually look decent. (They still do this with the current look, but it's been consolidated onto the same L3 background)

 

Examples of separate L3's from the 2012 diagrid look:

 

Regular L3:

Anchor L3:
