CBS News correspondent Manuel Bojorquez just presented a report on BBC World about the Mexico City earthquake signing off as: This is Manuel Bojorquez, CBS News for BBC News, Mexico City. Sounded really clunky. I guess the BBC wanted to make sure their audience knew who their reporters are and who isnt. Typically I've heard in the past something like " Manuel Bojorquez for BBC News, Mexico City.'

In other changes to FNC.

Laura Ingraham starts on Oct 30th with the Ingraham Angle. The Five returns to 5pm on October 25th. Hannity moves to 9pm on Oct 30th.

If the name sounds familiar is because she previously had a show called "Just In with Laura Ingraham" which was canceled after three weeks. Right after the show's cancelation, a video surfaced of her berating staff on set. This was from the first few days on the job

WNYW has a background that has not changed in years. They really should change it

Yep - occasionally the presenters make fun of it, especially the lack of the new World Trade Center tower. WCBS and WNBC have both had three new sets since WNYW's current one made its debut.

Effectively making WNYW using the oldest set in the New York City market, even its sister Fox News and Fox Business had introduced new sets several times since WNYW introduced theirs.

From KBS in South Korea, here is a compilation of KBS2's KBS 8 Morning News Time intros from 2004 to the present:

What's the point of KBS having two different morning newscasts, News Plaza and Morning News Time?

South Korean television doesn't really have long breakfast shows similar to BBC Breakfast or NBC's Today show, most of them run for an hour only. As to News Plaza's existence, it is one of two remnants of a former television station. When South Korea was under military dictatorship in 1980, several broadcasters were forced to merge with KBS. Most notably the defunct Tongyang Broadcasting Company, where "News Plaza" originally came from. TBC was forced into KBS and became KBS 2. "Morning Newstime" started in 2004.
