    I mean it's not bad... just a shame that it doesn't have any real uniqueness/nod to Colorado.... Wonder if any other stations will follow suit

     

    KTVT and WCCO are probably the next ones up to get upgrades.

  2. WRCB Local 3, the Sarkes Tarzian-owned station in Chattanooga, is in the process of replacing their decade-old set and are currently doing their newscasts from temporary setups throughout their building.

    I'm disappointed with WVUE...  This would've been a great opportunity to implement the Saints colors...

     

    In all fairness, they do use a gold color scheme for their Saints coverage/segments. Not so much the entire newscast, which is fine.

    Sinclair considering selling 30% of its station portfolio plus the Tennis channel 

     

    https://www.cnbc.com/2024/05/09/sinclair-explores-selling-30percent-of-broadcast-stations.html

     

    Before this thread gets out of hand, there is probably no chance of ABC swooping in to buy WJLA. If they didn't buy the station when Albritton put itself up for sale years ago, what makes anyone think they would even do so now?

     

    And I seriously doubt Fox would want to make WZTV & WUXP into O&Os themselves.

    I highly doubt that happens as the stations only have 4 options to choose from; Blue/Red (KQWC), Blue/Yellow (WVLT), Blue/White (WAVE), Red/White/Black (WWBT).
     

    That said, I can see WYMT going Blue/Yellow or Blue/White

     

    Whatever scheme WKYT gets when they switch to GrayONE, expect WYMT to receive the same (with maybe some yellow added to it.

     

    And just because there are 4 standard options to choose from doesn't mean a station can't always modify the colors later (i.e., WAFB during Mardi Gras season recently).

    image.thumb.jpeg.2b76e9c2155005bb9d1d93e81c301cfe.jpegLooks like WAVE is next on the list!

     

    WAVE is launching GrayONE an hour from now at 11/10c. They've been running promos teasing of it over the last week(s).

     

    As an aside, can we change the name of this thread to "The GrayONE-ification Thread" or something similar?

    Okay this is a freaking cool set for Sinclair

     

    They've been stepping up lately as far as their in-house builds go. Not just at WJLA, but at other stations as well.

    WVUE in New Orleans is moving to a new building, which formerly housed WLAE and a housing authority.

     

    https://www.fox8live.com/2023/12/21/wvue-fox-8-is-moving-new-building/

     

    Back during Katrina, WVUE's existing building was flooded, requiring it to be fully renovated and the station had to be operated out of Mobile at sister station WALA (when both were owned by Emmis) for a time.

     

    The current facility is surrounded by Xavier University, and Xavier will be acquiring it once WVUE vacates.

     

    The good thing about the new digs is it's still fairly new (only 9 years old, having been constructed in late 2014/early 2015). While I doubt WVUE will be able to fully utilize the entire space, I would suspect Gray would seek to consolidate and/or grow some of their operations there, especially with their InvestigateTV unit being based in New Orleans and all.
