I don't know how I feel about it. It's an improvement, but, I don't like that it still doesn't include the CBS logo anywhere.

What do y'all think?

A giant comma with a 10 on the side.

Dear God, that is hideous. It looks like "10 in 9".

I'm undecided on the new logo, but the revamped website is a big improvement over the old one!

I'd like to see the logo in the context of the station's overall graphics package before making final judgment.

I've always hated the Local 32 logo. They should redo that one.

Isn't that the head rest from a BMW X10?

It's also UofM colored.

The website is actually well laid out. It doesn't look like Yahoo from 2002 like most media sites...

It's not quite U-M colored; the shade of blue is different for sure.

The Golden State Warriors came to mind for me.

The news set backdrop color clashes too much with the new color scheme. They should change the grayish / turquoise color used now to blue. The current color juxtaposed with the maize colored graphics looks like shit.

I'm not used to the word "news" being absent from the logo. I think it should be added back for newscast branding purposes.

The logo is bad, real bad. The lack of the CBS logo is appalling, I am glad "News" is NOT present in the logo. Never liked that branding on any station. As bad as this new logo is, its leaps and bounds better than the long time logo it replaced. The new logo looks like there was no thought or effort.

That logo is UGG.

I am on the fence with the new logo, how ever it seems that in every news cast I hear Northern Michigan's news leader. I think it would make a great drinking game every time it's said drink a shot of liquor :D :D :D

Uh... A group of friends and I honestly did that back in high school... FYI, didn't take very long LMAO

Site is lightyears better. But that logo is hideous. There couldn't have been much thought put into that. Looks like something from an elementary math coloring assignment that my nephew would have done in 10 minutes.

Also reminds me of something that may have come from Sesame Street...

All in all, I'll take it over the gawdy previous logo. One thing troubles me, there is no mention on their main page that they are a CBS affiliate. It's like they are keeping it a secret. It's on their about page but still. I see no mention of their call letters on the main page either. I think the CBS Eye and WWTV/WWUP call letters should be incorporated into their logo.

I get a kick out of Bill Froelich making the announcement on the newscast about the changes... Bill is one of the reason The Comma (new nickname) is falling apart. News director, pompous man with little talent....
I am shocked he isn't anchoring all the newscasts .... he wants to be the center of attention so much....

If anyone is good at Photoshopping, how about making a mock up of the new logo by adding the CBS eye and the call letters? Maybe put the call letters under the 9 and maybe superimpose the EYE at the 9 o'clock position a little? The yellow isn't very flattering tbh.

They should've used a background consistent with the color scheme of the news set.
