9&10 New Graphics Package

Post by TheForce » Mon Oct 21, 2019 12:03 pm

Did anybody catch the new 9&10 News at Noon intro and graphics package? (However that gaudy LOGO is still the same). Also a different voice is used.

It's a very nice upgrade from what the station used before! The full screen pages in particular are much, much cleaner! The obnoxious maze-like background is gone. :D

The new full screens - and even the lower thirds - have animated watermarks that look cool!

Agreed, just wish they'd have changed that hideous logo.

Haven't seen it (although I'm on the east side of the state now....). I don't think they'll ever get rid of that logo as long as Mario Iacobelli has control of the station. I heard somewhere that he personally designed the current logo

Here I thought it was the "genius" consultants at Frank N. Magid Associates who dreamt it up. It was probably a collaboration of sorts.

Perhaps what I heard was incorrect. That has happened before :wink:

Saw the new graphics on Michigan This Morning today. I like the cleaner, less-busy look--but the font used is absolutely nondescript. I liked the old font better, even if it's pretty much the same as what CBS used for The NFL Today back in the early '90s.

It would look fine if the size were reduced, brightness dimmed, and if the time/temp bug were better integrated.

MW: No, the logo just sucks.

I found a clip on youtube, and I agree the graphics are much cleaner. Would love to see something like that over here in the Tri-Cities DMA.

I definitely like the new graphics, too! I'm indifferent on the logo.
