WLUC-TV 6 New Set and Graphics

Post by IIN4MU » Sun Sep 10, 2017 3:30 pm

Pretty impressive upgrade within the last week or so. The set and graphics look nice; they'll get the kinks worked out in time. The only glaring downside is the lonnnnnnnnng pre-show open that needs to be much quicker.

Looks nice! I like it!

Did Sinclair change their standard-issue news set recently? This set is a LOT nicer than those rolled out in recent years at stations in some larger markets (WEYI in Flint and ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, AL, to name a couple).
C'mon iHeartRadio - do the RIGHT thing for once! Please cancel "Rover's Morning Glory" from WBFX in Grand Rapids.

Their set is even nicer than WZZM's.

Now if only they would update their logo to be a bit more imaginative.

Thanks, tvradiojunkie, for the info.

I agree, Bull. However, I don't mind the logo at all.

I always liked their old school "rainbow" logo. I can't even remember the last time I saw that one (80s or 90s?)

The rainbow was clip art from TM Productions "Someplace Special" marketing campaign. At one time, WLUC had the full TM treatment of jingles, intro's, bumpers and promotional songs.
