VARTV tidbit...

 

Is a second TV station in the Roanoke market thisclose to doing its newscasts in HD (behind WSLS/10)? Stay tuned... (4/22/2008)

 

I'd put my money on WDBJ.

Oh yeah' date=' no question about it. That's the WLS bug (with an ABC 11 logo). Looks beautiful though.[/quote']

 

 

WTVD's set also looks like a version of the WLS set.. A BDI set too, I'm guessing. I'm noticing they're also using alot of the exact same camera angles as WLS too.

 

 

WTVD's new graphics (especially the logo graphic used on the screen directly behind the anchor desk) actually look more like some of the original concepts originally drawn up for WLS before they were changed to what WLS actually uses.

Yup, it's WDBJ. Launched HD news at 5pm today.

A second TV station in the Roanoke market started doing its newscasts in HD (behind WSLS/10). Schurz Communications' WDBJ (7CBS) flipped on the HD switch for its 5 p.m. newscast... For those of you keeping score, Richmond - 0 and Hampton Roads - 0 for stations doing HD news... (4/22/2008)

KESQ in Palm Springs, CA launched HD news... and they picked up PNP!

 

PNP?! I thought that package was dead.

Beginning this week, WHDH is draping a green screen behind their anchor desk which will show an image of their newsplex. This is being done to hide the construction they are doing in preparation for the switch to HD. They are taking out all of their old monitors and replacing them with a large screen. They are also taking out the "7 News" balcony surround. Music and graphics will also be refreshed for the HD relaunch.

 

EDIT: To get a look at what they are actually replacing, look to the right of this picture. The woman on the left is disgraced WHDH GM Randi Goldklank.

Correction: WHDH is going to be replacing the balcony and the glass behind it with a projection screen, not the TV wall as originally stated.

WSYX/WTTE has started broadcasting their news in HD Saturday Night.

(while I was stuck watching the news in Toledo. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Painful.)

 

EDIT:WBFF has started HD news as well.

Do you have any screencaps? How does it compare to what Sinclair has now?

WBFF hasn't started HD news yet... I'll get caps when they do though.

 

My best guess is immediately following the Idol finale next week.
