  1. Best implementation of the package: WPVI-TV - Philadelphia. Biggest disappointment of the package: KABC-TV moving to the WABC-TV music package. Overall, it's a very nice and clean package. -- Matt
  2. I mean, he is 92 years old. He still is quick as a whip with his wit and understanding and I think it was a good segment. They had to honor Dan Rather in some capacity. They say that time heals all wounds. Good on CBS News and Sunday Morning doing this. And he still wants to be a journalist. Dan Rather has quite a history and I applaud him still doing what he does. -- Matt
  3. What water damage could there be ... that's a relatively new skyscraper in Center City. -- Matt
  4. Can't help but to think of the Maury Show when seeing the WMLW logo. - Matt
  5. WHP-TV CBS 21 here in Harrisburg (not to any surprise) kept the old ticker, for now. -- Matt
  6. I would say they have most of the graphics ready for it ... except for the open. I really believe they are having trouble matching the style of the collage-style open to the Action News theme. to the graphic look. I still think they will keep the Action News open but will adopt the rest of the package. Some things, you cannot change. -- Matt
  7. Much needed upgrade from that other graphics package. A major upgrade. Well done! -- Matt
  8. It's something to work and bulid on. It's not bad. It's not great either. -- Matt
  9. I love the new look. While it is basic ... it's minimalistic and nice. Not bad at all. -- Matt
  10. A 100+ Market weather branding for a Top 5 TV market. Odd. -- Matt
  11. Just like how there is only one WGN-TV ... There's only one Tom Skilling. A well-deserved retirement. -- Matt
  12. I will never complain how dated CBS21 looks here ever again. And the NBC side of that duopoly is not having that rebrand at all. Those talent opens ... yeesh. -- Matt
  13. Yes, it does look nice. And yes, I've been waiting forever for it. Haha. The time-lapse video is something else. Two months of construction ... 1 month of tweaks and getting it just right ... and they kept it a secret to about 48 hours from go time. There is only a handful of stations where a secret can be kept like that and silent. -- Matt
  14. Today was the day and the new WGAL Studio A made it's premiere on the Noon newscast. It is a 50 foot by 50 foot set, bigger than previous Studio B and it's just beautiful. Hats off to Hearst for making a great investment in WGAL. Here is a link to the new set including time-lapse video the construction, that took about 3 months. https://www.wgal.com/article/take-a-look-at-wgals-new-state-of-the-art-news-set/45316686 -- Matt
  15. After over 11 and a half years, WGAL is about to say goodbye to Studio B. New set makes its premiere on Tuesday afternoon. I wonder if this is Studio A. Not sure. But … finally! https://www.linkedin.com/posts/kristin-kay-315b44111_so-much-hard-work-and-brain-power-over-the-activity-7111802338553552896-S1XR — Matt
  16. Perhaps. One thing about Northeast and Central PA ... is that things do not like to change or evolve. -- Matt
  17. Kate Merriman is leaving WGAL. https://www.facebook.com/KateMerrimanWGAL/posts/pfbid0YAcAHCkmWL3und3nbqY9pbw2WeFpobYV1icDJD1BeyU5U1kCgQz1AUJnEzjF1is7l Best wishes to her in her new adventures! Her replacement, Jake Reyes has already started. He is from Florida. https://www.facebook.com/JakeReyesWGAL -- Matt
  18. My thoughts exactly. It's nice to see plants in any studio ... not just the holiday season with poinsettias. They really did a nice job with this set. WHTM here in the SusquValley can take some pointers from WMBD. -- Matt
  19. 28/22 Eyewitness News! -- Matt
  20. My opinion: Change is good here. Yes, the new 7-day look will take time to get used to, as with anything. Other's opinion: Only 1 in this FB thread liked it (two if you include my comment lol). Rest, well they don't. Once person asked to change it back to 'save his marriage'. Philly, being Philly I guess. LOL. https://www.facebook.com/6abcActionNewsWeather/photos/a.164230073660511/5984925338257593/?__cft__[0]=AZVBHUZenayjbhVYtwF9YV61w0VW-V9mI6YVOhNmdE11dx2ooOJVe-6Ncvicj0y-5CQB1PXKbZIGLBL7A0m2VMANeEzkQJBDeNdriw3FnlWUhukX3EM7OlC-hCEksa-MEfHbC29IG71wjcveHVPFGKUHTPyJr2poT8FzUXn8oudxcev5P2j01MFCxv9F6CkAjtk&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R -- Matt
  21. They've come a long way from stretched Helvetica. This look so nice. -- Matt
  22. I think they should just air CLASSIC Bob Barker TPIR eps in it's place. Yeah, I know Pluto has it whenever, but I think it would be neat to see this on live national OTA television again. -- Matt
  23. Question: Does WESH also do all the promos for the other Hearst Stations as well? -- Matt
  24. That works for KAKE-Land Weather Plex ... not necessarily for Houston. -- Matt
