  1. Speaking of KKTV in Colorado Springs.... Looks like they just went through a logo revamp.
  2. Noticed this on KITV's updated website today. WEWS called. They want their logo back. Haha. Also to keep it with the thread, new abc logo added for tax.
  3. Just saw that former WMC Meteorologist Nick Gunter is now at Gray Sister station WSFA in Montgomery. https://www.wsfa.com/2021/09/24/wsfa-12-news-welcomes-meteorologist-nick-gunter-team/
  4. You can add WTVM to the list to gain the HoneyComb look too. Their banner at WTVM.COM also carries that same look (in the blue and gold color scheme), as WTVY, KOSA, and others. (I guess this, the WMC package, along with the WAFF/WDAM, and WLOX package, are the 4 packages Gray is rolling out across the board right now)...
  5. Looks like the Tegna change train is coming to WZDX in Huntsville on Monday as well. Gone is the WZDX Fox Nexstar era branding and logo. The new look will bring a return to Fox 54 brand, complete with the same 5 from WOI. The weather team posted on social media saying the new brand and full Tegna look will occur on Monday, Sept. 27th.
  6. Seeing some major changes to WMC in Memphis starting tomorrow, seems like they are moving around their whole daytime lineup according to zap2it. Old Schedule 11 AM - Live with Kelly & Ryan 12 PM - AN5 @ Midday 1 PM - Days of our Lives 2 PM - Kelly Clarkson 3 PM - AN5 @ 3 4 PM - AN5 @ 4 New Schedule 11 AM - AN5 @ Midday 12 PM - Bluff City Life 12:30 PM - Draft Kings Sports Book Report 1 PM - Days of our Lives 2 PM - Dr. Oz Show 3 PM - Kelly Clarkson 4 PM - AN5 @ 4 As far as I can tell, Live with Kelly and Ryan will no longer be seen in Memphis after WMC drops it. Also WVTM in Birmingham is moving their talk show line up around starting Sept 13th. Right now WVTM airs Kelly at noon, Days at 1 pm, Tamron at 2 pm and Ellen at 3 pm. On the 13th Tamron will move to noon, Days still at 1, Ellen will move to 2 pm and Kelly will move to 3 pm.
  7. WILX News 10 in Lansing /Jackson market updated their logo to a red box from the previous blue, also transitioned to the First Alert Weather branding. The graphics look similar to the WAVE/WMBF look. They even did a whole news article about their changes. https://www.wilx.com/2021/08/30/wilx-news-10-announces-new-branding-first-alert-chief-meteorologist-darrin-rockcole-11am-newscast-renewed-focus-original-local-reporting/
  8. Coahoma County which Clarksdale, MS is located in, does actually belong to the Memphis DMA. Also Cox owns both WABG in Greenville and WHBQ in Memphis, so I wouldn't see Gray picking up that cluster.
  9. Both WTVM and WLTZ website now confirm the Shared Service Agreement. Looks like WLTZ will get a new logo, now Local 38. "WTVM News Leader 9 is pleased to be able to provide WLTZ NBC 38 with some of the market’s top-rated local newscasts from WTVM for the WLTZ audience beginning November 23rd. The partnership between WTVM and WLTZ means we will continue to explore ways to enhance our service to the local community. That service is always focused on expanding the ways we can bring timely and essential local news, local sports and weather coverage to more viewers in the Columbus-Auburn area." https://www.wtvm.com/2020/11/22/some-wtvm-news-leader-newscasts-will-be-seen-wltz-nbc/ https://www.wltz.com/2020/11/23/some-wtvm-news-leader-9-newscasts-will-be-seen-on-wltz-nbc-38/
  10. Looks like WAVE 3 launched their new VizRT graphics. With an orange and blue version of the Gray graphics. Gone is the great custom look they created.
  11. Seems like Gray is at it again. A reporter for WLTZ in Columbus, Georgia has reported that Gray has agreed to purchase the NBC and CW affiliate from SagamoreHill Broadcasting. To merge it with already owned ABC WVTM 9 and operated WXTX Fox 54. Will be interesting to see how this plays out in a tiny market with only 4 stations. No word if any other SagamoreHill stations are sold.
  12. I will be honest this all sounds no different than what Raycom did back in Hawaii. Raycom owned KHNL NBC 13 and KFVE MYTV 5 while KGMB CBS 9 had a different owner. Raycom took over KGMB (CBS) and moved the whole station to channel 5. Channel 9 became MyTV as K5. If I am not mistaken only KGMB (5) and KHNL (13) were owned by Raycom? So it was legal since they didn't technically own KFVE (9) (Now KIII). Also Nexstar just had this happen in South Texas, KVEO was NBC and KGBT was CBS 4. CBS 4 was given to Nexstar from the Sinclair/Tribune Mishap , affiliation and people and property was moved to 23.2 but Sinclair kept the KGBT 4 tower. So it sounds like it's legal, since Gray already owned KYES and KTUU legally, no stations changed hands just intellectual property? I have a feeling Gray will pull a Dakota News Now in Anchorage... Plucking the talent from each station (Like they did for KDLT and KSFY) and creating one bold branding. I guess Raycom did that too when Hawaii News Now was created. This is just a guess, but GCI is the major cell phone player in Alaska.... KTVA spectrum bait?
  13. Looks like Gray just took the 5 from the current KYES MyNetwork TV logo and slapped a CBS network eye next to i t.
  14. Rather Breaking News in Alaska.... https://www.ktva.com/story/42439484/gci-sells-ktva-to-gray-television GCI sold its CBS programming to Gray and Gray immediately moved the CBS affiliation to their already owned Channel 5 to create CBS 5 Anchorage. Note to point out that Gray already owns NBC station KTUU. https://www.ktuu.com/2020/07/31/ktuu-expands-into-southeast-alaska-and-kyes-launches-cbs5-anchorage/ Gray also bought the CBS Southeast Alaska stations and NBC Southeast Stations from GCI as well. Quote from the Gray produced article. "Through these separate agreements, KTVA’s local news operation will be preserved and enhanced under the stewardship of a pure-play broadcaster that owns leading local news operations in over 90 markets across the country, from Fairbanks, Alaska, to West Palm Beach, Florida." This also means that (from what I can tell) Gray now owns all NBC and CBS in the Alaska.
  15. As far as I can tell I don't think the ex-Raycom stations will be changing their looks since they already used Arc. KYOU was an exception since it used revrocket as its web host, same host still being used by KNIN Fox 9. It seems that KYOU, which was produced out of WXIX in Cincy under Raycom had its newscasts (or at least weather segments) moved to new sister station KCRG 9 in Cedar Rapids, IA, which makes sense since they are much closer to each other. I think KYOU swapped to the new Arc look at the same time as KCRG 9 did since they had their operations moved to Iowa from Ohio.
  16. The Legacy Gray stations are switching to Washington Post ARC from Clickibility, which is the same platform the former Raycom stations currently use. While all the former Raycom stations have the same basic design, the Legacy Gray stations are keeping the "look" of their former Clickiblity but the underpinnings are now from ARC. The main thing you notice is the Weather Pages from Legacy Gray and former Raycom are the same basic design. It has yet to be seen if the former Raycom stations will switch their design to fall in line with the Legacy Gray stations or not.
  17. WZDX Fox in Huntsville made the switch to the new website layout today and kept its, rocketcitynow.com address. This means, as far as I know, WATN in Memphis is the only one of the Nexstar purchase stations that still has not made the switch. I am sure it will be any day now.
  18. Seems basic. Not bad but not amazing. Maybe the wrong forum for this but million dollar question. Does Tegna drop the "Local" branding from WATN and WOI I know that was a Nexstar thing. Guess we will find out in the coming days and weeks.
  19. Word on the street is Grays Graphic hub did not do these graphics. They were done in-house at WAVE 3. Great look if you ask me. Good evolution of the Limerick package of late.
  20. WSFA 12 in Montgomery announced they are moving to a new facility located in a RSA building in downtown. Makes me wonder if this was in the works before Raycom whom was owned by RSA sold the company to Gray TV. Says they should move into their new facility early next year and leave their longtime home on East Delano Ave in Montgomery. https://www.wsfa.com/2019/11/09/wsfa-news-moving-new-downtown-montgomery-home/
  21. I am pretty sure that KATV ABC 7 is #1 in every time slot in Little Rock. I don't hear much out of 4 and 11. KATV was #1 under Albritton and Sinclair hasn't done anything to jeopardize that in, as of 2000 at least, a "red" state.
  22. Looks like WTVG 13ABC in Toledo also picked up the latest Gray Tv Graphics Package. Seems to be a more cobalt blue than other Former-Raycom stations are getting. Also the open is more like what WMC has than the others have been getting.
  23. Seems as if KLTV and KTRE have the new Gray Graphics package that WMC got recently. Weather Graphics are tad different than the WMC version. https://www.kltv.com/video/2019/08/05/gmet-express-pt-3/
  24. Looks like WTOL is starting to get the Tegna Look too with the Weather Graphics.... Keeping the First Alert Weather Branding... KWES 9 is still on the old Raycom look.
