Worst open? Dude, seriously? MG gave WRIC a fresh new look (FX set, graphics, logo, everything) in 2016 before the Nexstar takeover. Paul Turner became the station's new VO earlier this year. It neede

Hey voiceover dude. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!! Unless the news makes you that bored?  

Any person who designs TV station graphics using the Arial font or any variation thereof should be terminated immediately.

I wonder what kind of mushrooms the directors were smoking to conjure that up...🤔🤣😂

It just feels like they actually ran an image promo instead of a news open by accident. But it wasn't... lol

It doesn't sound like they even own a license for The Rock. SAM needs to sue them.

That's even worse 🤣😂

 

Using a good theme but don't even pay for the license and their news open looks like something out of a movie. I think we know their priorities 😂🤣

And this looks like it was made in the era of the "Doppler Dead Zone" promo....

Talk about trying too hard for this market.  The GM at the time, Duane Lammers later went on to start his own retrans company, Max Retrans that totally bungled all of the Sinclair sidecars last year, and eventually they all ended up being fined by the FCC for "bad faith" negotiations.

 

Yes, there are others than Jeff Zucker who fall upwards...

This was way back in 2005, so much has changed.   For a station like that, the staff has probably turned several times over.

 

Here's a few more from WTWO.  There's a couple doozies in there including another sung morning show open(7:36), and one with a dog getting up in the morning (9:25)🤦‍♂️....

Someone was asleep at the wheel as the VO was muted 🤦‍♂️

 

 

I have so many questions:

 

1)  Does he always do the Pledge of Allegiance at the beginning of every newscast?  If so, Sinclair says you're hired.

 

2)  Happy Festivas! LOL jk.
