Primary Anchor (5/8)



  1. So designers should keep note to not use it? And ditch channel numbers altogether?
  2. This doesn’t look like ‘change’ to me. It still looks like an American parody news outlet from the mid-2000s, to be honest
  3. Recently, Singapore’s Mediacorp gave new logos and general (non-news) graphics to its local-“national” channels Channel 5 (English) and Vasantham (Tamil). But as I watched a Vasantham newscast, I noticed something was odd. Unlike Western news music which always seemed to be in major key or atonal (WHDH) this one was unusually dark. https://youtu.be/CF3bxqH71Ds
  4. I really thought you guys were talking about association football (FIFA) from the title. But anyways, it’s just the standard over gratuitous 3D that people hate and no one does anything about, but here it looks decidedly…average.
  5. The product is still OK for this market, but dang do these graphics suck. It just gives a weird response to “what decade are we in?”
  6. Another option: let the networks jointly gobble up Tegna. That way, they can more quickly obsolete the network-affiliate model.
  7. Well then, known commodities suck. Add a little bit of mystery. There’s a reason why it’s “The National” rather than “The National News” on CBC.
  8. CBS would just go to WUPA. We were discussing the rationale behind removing CBS references from WANF.
  9. The thing with DMAs is that Nielsen has basically stopped publishing rankings every year. The FCC is looking for a replacement metric as of now.
  10. Nielsen DMAs basically no longer exist, so I think we would now have to go off by metro area population. The old Meredith package was based off of WOIO’s, but first they need to fix their VHF/encoding issues and potentially drop a few subchannels before anyone will be convinced to watch WOIO to get new graphics.
  11. WGCL/WANF switches from CBS to NBC if that happens? Yes, I know that is pure speculation, but it's what WRAL did, and Gray doesn't have too much to lose now they ditched the CBS branding.
  12. For this (Nightly News at 10pm) to work, the West Coast edition as seen on KNBC and KNSD would need to be scrapped and the regular version aired on time-delay. It would integrate nicely thanks to those two stations having 11pm local newscasts.
  13. Hothaus won. Death to the Gray graphics hub!
  14. Now could they consider moving Nightly News to 10? That would make everybody, the viewers and the affiliates (aka O&O management) happy.
