Can't confirm this directly, but according to this post from a retired engineer, as of September 5th, Two Thousand and Twenty, almost 14 years since this thread was created...   WDSU-TV New

Well, if Wikipedia says it...

Both of these station wiki pages say there in HD 1080i 16:9 that the official aspect ratio for HD!!!

They've been in HD for awhile now, but CBC's The National has now shifted to full 16:9 presentation (alongside the 4:3 letterbox introduced a few weeks ago)

 

edit: Oh, it looks like this is across CBC News as a whole, for both local, national, and their news channel. They're still using the same graphics; but they just resized them (which was probably easy, since style/behaviour-wise, much of them act a lot like WBZ's old look). They're just a bit too large though.

KULR, the NBC affiliate in Billings, became the first Montana television station to switch to HD. The studio cameras are still 16:9 standard definition. What's interesting about the switch to HD is the new graphics that KULR is using. KULR adopted their version of the NBC O&O graphics that are used on KNBC, WCAU, KNSD, etc.

 

I have attached KULR's 8-Day Forecast that includes these graphics.

WROC/WUHF have gone HD. Just got captures from the market. Now, when will 10/WHEC go HD? Saw a promo for a new anchor with different graphics that the newscast is using, and appeared to be shot in 16x9 (though aired letterbox and pillar box on the HD stream captures). In fact, I saw no HD outside of network programming on WHEC (but my stream captures were limited to the 7pm news with NBC NN leadin and 11pm news with NBC leadin and lead out...)

That looks, ahem, Mattress King Cool.

 

In other news, CTV is still being a bunch of slowpokes in comparison to the other stations of Regina; Global is gleefully bragging about its HD newscasts in commercials, and CBC is now doing its news on all channels in full-on 16:9 (though they REALLY need to revise how they resized their graphics. Too many huge white blocks.)

On Friday, WCHS/WVAH in Charleston, WV launched HD newscasts with their new set from Devlin Design Group

http://www.ddgtv.com...hd-news-set-24/

 

Devlin is currently installing a new set at WICS-TV 20 in Springfield, IL...and they say they will be doing one more install this year for Sinclair. I'm thinking WKEF/WRGT in Dayton is next on the list since they are starting anew in the former WBDT building in suburban Miamisburg...

WCHS/WVAH finally in HD. Here is the proof in the pudding.

 

That's a really nice open. But those big bulky L3's that take up half the screen really ruin it and make the whole thing look cheap (which is no suprise because this is Sinclair we're talking about).

WFMJ in Youngstown Ohio posted a Facebook Picture of their new HD Control Room on Oct 2.

According to the Facebook page this Sunday Morning. This is one comment "like the new format". I guess they flipped the switch to HD. I will confirm this tonight at 6. I will have video if they made the flip.

WFMJ starting using Indie Band in early 2012 for WFMJ Today.

This ends a 12 year run of WFMJ using Metropolis. Expect for some station ID's and promos.
