  1. Why do people hate the odd color that KDKA has for their graphics? I don't get it. BTW, I actually would love if CBS did a Red and blue Texas theme for KTVT.
  2. I want a black and gold version of this for KDKA-TV please. Please CBS.
  3. Here is all of the screenshots I have of the new package.
  4. Best comment of the thread. Well done. @RCA TK47
  5. Here are some new promo liners for the new CBS Evening News.
  6. You can add the Steelers to the In-house Graphics as well even though you have CBS O&O KDKA-TV there.
  7. Ok, thanks for the correction. Then it moved to WPXI in 1997. I corrected the original response.
  8. I'm aware of that (that happens in other markets as well) however, I put it there because many of the same reporters are used at both stations. This is Sinclair we are talking about so the separate newscast can go away at any time.
  9. David Muir has much better ratings then CBS so no.
  10. It would have been nice to see Norah on the last day of the package. As people have said many times on this fourm, Norah is the reason why the CBS Evening News is in last place, (and more then normal) I don't remember the ratings ever being this bad for Katie Couric, Scott Pelley, Dan Rather, Anthony Mason, Jeff Glor, or anyone else . However, I actually enjoy when Major Garrett is on so that was nice to see.
  11. Is anyone else sad that the old graphics are now gone. It is also fitting that the the final time these graphics are shown. Major Garrett is anchoring instead of Norah. Speaks to the true downfall of the CBS Evening News for the last several years.
  12. First off, that would be WTAE. WPXI could air a 3 PM Newscast or move one of the graveyard shows to the 3 pm time slot. Sad day for WPXI though. Judge Judy has been on 11 since 1997-98 season (Judy's first year was on WTAE for the 96-97 season). Thanks to @Superdude for confirming that.
  13. We are getting to a point where the local news bubble will burst and stations will be going off the air or sold to other groups. Many people aren't watching local news and it shows in many markets. Just to add a newscast for ad revenue is ,and will always be, wrong. That is one of the reasons why groups like the GOP (which I can't stand in its own right) want nothing to do with media these days is because the Station Owner CEOs are only in it for the conflict and money. It hurts journalism integrity/viewership even more when you see statements like this from Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley. https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/5/19/2098963/-Sinclair-Broadcast-Group-CEO-says-a-politically-divided-America-is-very-good-for-our-business
  14. It was already added before you posted this. Simulcasting Is a terrible idea for the viewer and shows how greedy you are as a company. Also, I would ask WBRE/WYOU, WJXX/WTLV, WICU/WSEE, and WJAX/WFOX how simulcasting "helps" their ratings. It doesn't. Fox would still be upset if their newscast is simulcast with an NBC Station. Count on it.
  15. These East Coast/Midwest NBC Stations already have 10 PM newscasts on other Networks. WXIA for MyNetwork Affiliate WATL (Atlanta) [TEGNA] WFLA for MyNetwork Affiliate WTTA (Tampa) [Nexstar] WRAL for Fox Affiliate WRAZ (Raleigh) [Capital] WAVY-TV for Fox Affiliate WVBT (Hampton Roads) [Nexstar] WICU for CW Affiliate WSEE dot 2 (Erie) [Lilly] WESH for CW Affiliate WKCF (Orlando) [Hearst] WBAL-TV for MeTV subchannel (Baltimore) [Hearst] WPXI for Fox Affiliate WPGH -TV (Pittsburgh) [Cox/Sinclair] WOAI-TV for Fox Affiliate KABB-TV (San Antonio) [Sinclair] KSHB for Independent KMCI-TV (Kansas City) [Scripps] WWBT for Fox Affiliate WRLH (Richmond) [Gray/Sinclair] KXAN for CW Affiliate KNVA (Austin) [Nexstar] WPTV for Fox Affiliate WFLX (West Palm Beach) [Scripps] WXII for CW Affiliate WCWG (Greensboro) [Hearst] KFOR for Independent KAUT-TV (Oklahoma City) [Nexstar] WBIR for Fox Affiliate WTNZ (Knoxville) [TEGNA/Lockwood] WNYT for MyNetwork Affiliate WNYA (Albany) [Hubbard] WDTN for CW Affiliate WBDT (Dayton) [Nexstar] WGBA for Independent WACY-TV (Green Bay) [Scripps] WTOV for Fox Subchannel WTOV dot 2 {FOX 9} (Wheeling) [Sinclair] WLWT for MeTV subchannel (Cincinnati) [Hearst] WGAL for MeTV Subchannel (Harrisburg) [Hearst] There are probably more so let me know what I missed. Bottom line is that these stations have a decision to make if NBC goes through with this.
  16. Would you think many NBC affiliates would want to start/move a 10 PM newscast after hearing this? Many affiliates have newscasts already on sister stations (Especially FOX). I can see FOX getting very upset at NBC for doing this. I can see WPXI taking its newscast away from WPGH/Sinclair to air on its own channel but it wouldn't be as easy in some cases if an owner has both an NBC and a Fox station.
  17. My friend Cirren Jones will upload the Newscast to his YouTube Channel when it debuts. I will post it here.
  18. Point #1. I think the point Josh was trying to get across was TV News has to reach a new base and TikTok is one of those options, I don't think it was a puffy advertorial for KDKA, their news director, and some of their talent. The reason why there wasn't more of the news business use of social media is because it would have turned into a culture war like many people who like to bring up the word "boomers". I would have liked to see more viewer input in the story but this story was researched in 2 weeks time so with the lack of profit that the Post-Gazette and other newspapers get, you can't really delay longer then that. I mentioned that in a twitter post response to this story. Point #2: I believe most people would agree with you that they use TikTok for funny short videos, food-related stuff, sports highlights, a new workout routine, dance videos, and the occasional fun fact about where they live and all recognize it as mindless entertainment for when you need a break. I do agree that NO ONE watches TikTok to actually get informed. However ,as you can see from this picture, 21 percent actually do use TikTok for News and 6 percent regularly get their news on TikTok( https://www.pewresearch.org/journalism/2021/09/20/news-consumption-across-social-media-in-2021/pj_2021-09-20_news-social-media_0-02/ ). Point #3 : TV news should have a social media presence. I agree that stations need to use TikTok for short-form reporting and quick summaries of important stories. I also agree that most stations (Including KDKA) are currently using TikTok for Fun BS and fluff no one cares about. Point #4: I also agree but on one condition, some content creators on Youtube (which is better in my opinion then TikTok) actually do very good investigative reporting . TikTok needs to allow stations to do the same thing in a much smaller capacity but that won't happen with TikTok' s current short video format. The Upside that TV stations and actual journalists have is more reliable creditably and fact checking with more reliable sources which many content creators don't have. Many content creators just latch on to news stations who reported stories first and then add their own spin. TV News confidence is at an all time low. Maybe this new base can raise confidence back up again. TikTok isn't for me anyway but I wanted to hear what you and others thought of this.
  19. I thought I would post this here because the Pittsburgh Post Gazette media reporter Josh Axelrod did a great piece on how KDKA-TV uses Tiktok to get younger viewers to watch their newscast. https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2022/08/24/kdka-tiktok-instagram-reels-bob-pompeani-celina-pompeani-mary-ours-heather-abraham/stories/202208240011 I know this is a heated topic so please be civil.
  20. This is an idea I have had for a while now. I may so something similar in a future video on my YouTube for some newscasts. Would you watch it? These are the local Pittsburgh Newscasts (3 Screen), and Washington DC (4 Screens) but I can do this for other cities too. Tell me what You think of this idea. BTW, My Youtube Is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLYQHTCr8M59QQ-J4lvSj7g
  21. These videos mention WWE and the XFL as sports on UPN.
  22. This is actually pretty simple. Broadcast minor leagues and startup leagues that will have a small viewerbase at first but will grow as the years wind on. For Example, UPN had the WWE and the XFL as "sports" and had decent success. There is a way to do this if Nexstar is smart about it. Many UPN/WB stations have aired the MLB in the past as well. WPIX airs the Mets from time to time.
  23. If I was Nexstar, I would turn The CW into what MyNetworkTV is, a syndication service where most of their affiliates end up treating them like an Independent station. It could open up more newscasts and leftover programming on duopolies that can't air on the main channel. The CBS Owned CW stations with duopolies for example could air more news from its CBS Owned sister stations.
  24. I agree with this. This is the same problem UPN and The WB both had too.
  25. Here are the Vikings and Radiers Scoreboards.
