  1. Pay raises shouldn't be the only part of an answer. Extra pay is always nice. But there needs to be a larger more complex answer, and one person shouldn't make the decision. Station groups need to add to newsroom staff. But again, that's not sole answer. I think the two bits I mentioned above are small pieces to the overall answers. Many newsroom staff members feel like the entire shift rides on them. It's a feeling that is very overwhelming and quickly draining.
  2. That look is part of updates rolled out for the Scrippscasts and "neighborhood news initiative."
  3. They'll have live coverage the next time around too. Scripps isn't doing away with newscasts. They're just changing the process. They're also taking feedback into consideration from what's working and what's not. Expect things at all stations to continue to evolve over the next year or so.
  4. They've used a production cut for pre-recorded headlines for a while (I was there in the mid and late 2010's). They were using it when I was there. The previous news director thought Inergy wasn't urgent enough, so they added The Rock. Apparently, they've added the production track to it. It sounds like they've taken that cut and put it into their music computer. It was literally a computer they opened the track on and played through VLC or Windows Media Player.
  5. WBRC's news dominance isn't built around their affiliation to FOX. They don't need to emphasis it.
  6. Just a rendering. They may have thought they were at one point. It could also be as simple as designer just tossing in it in there.
  7. I think the set is very cold and sterile feeling.
  8. WKBW is supposedly debuting a new set on Monday.
  9. The changes are supposed to "launch" this week at WTXL, according to an email sent by Adam Symson's to the company.
  10. I think this is a case of “that’s what DeJuan wants”. There’s a lot of that going on at 1950 N. Meridian.
  11. I like the accent lighting behind the monitors. It's a small, but appreciated feature.
  12. I clicked on the link. It says: KNXV is picking it up. WCPO isn’t. While CPO is the Flagship, Cincy isn’t a large market. Mid 30s.
  13. WISH in Indianapolis broacasting in their newsroom. I’m told they’re getting a new set. No debut date was given. But, their outgoing set is only four years old.
  14. I really like set graphics. The wood look elements add a timeless feeling.
  15. Stream doesn’t mesh with those graphics at all.
  16. I don't mind any of the three above. For smaller markets they're actually good, and look far better than the WWSB / WAFF package. For the sake of show pacing, I appreciate the updated honeycomb open.
  17. It also allows for meteorologist “teams” during hours upon hours of severe weather coverage.
  18. He’s a great guy, and a great hire for them.
  19. The graphics package reminds me of the one used by WISH for Sports Locker
  20. The old set was rough... it gave off a bomb shelter feeling. TOO MUCH BRICK!
  21. The main Huntsville transmitters are on Monte Sano... located on the east side of Huntsville. Hytop is where the National Weather Service Radar is located. It's in a region called Sand Mountain. WAFF struggles in Sand Mountain, despite having a dedicated bureau to the area. But, people living in northeast Alabama have trouble picking up 48. They've worked in the past to boost their signal over there, but nothing seemed to help. WAFF's main transmitter sits the lowest on Monte Santo, which doesn't help with the signal issue in the mountainous areas east of Huntsville. I almost guarantee you this is another attempt to fix the problem.
  22. They dropped it when they rolled out the new graphics.
