Are there any news programmes in the US that cater for those who *don’t* have ADHD and would rather watch something without ridiculous graphics and hideous transitions between different clips?
Sadly so much of the stuff you see on air from graphics, to outfits, to content are all researched heavily. All that stuff usually comes from a “C” word that sends chills to news directors and journalists — consultants.
Right now I think the closest to any sort of minimalistic or even European style presentation is the new TEGNA graphics. While I have some qualms about the rollout and style guides (random use of colors - before in the previous generation graphics the colors coordinated to the USA Today color codes) I think with some more tweaks it would make it so much better.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
