The worst news opens of all time


Recommended Posts

Alpena may the one of the last markets in the country that's outright missing a network over the air. WBKB's main channel is CBS, and their subchannels are ABC and a FOX/MNTV combo in widescreen SD, but no NBC. The only other over the air station is a satellite of WCMU in Mt Pleasant.

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

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

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

WXTV's massive flat white box look is terrible compared to WNJU Telemundo 47's graphics. 

 

The graphics from WNBC are fine.  The abrupt cold open with no announcer introduction is just too quick IMO, compared to their previous intros.

 

Better than some other intros on this list but...NNN's truncated open compared to their previous grand animated intro, or the late Brokaw early Williams era open, sucks.

The worst opening montage that KIMA/KEPR ever had...the first version of Action News. This is with the Battery music package that was used up until 2018 when Sinclair finally started transitioning them. The same montage had been used a year prior with a variant of the CBS Enforcer music package and a different announcer.

It's not as choppy as I've seen in other videos, but the graphics scream "yuck"! Compared with KOMO and KATU at the same time, with the same owners, they treated these folks like the red-headed stepchild.
