Anyone noticed the News channel ticker font weight seems to be different at the moment?

I noticed that. The words seem larger and more in your face.

It has been an issue for weeks. If you have access to previous recordings, this font weight problem only appears on Victoria Derbyshire, and it’s an occasional problem.

I’m not sure if it’s an issue with the Studio B gallery or just the show’s template, because when World is in B, this font weight issue didn’t exist.

Did Shaun Ley's microphone fall off on his journey to the catwalk at 11am? There was a lot of rustling before he eventually appeared in shot at the screens and seemed to be fishing his lapel mic up through his jacket.

Perhaps something to do with the imminent refresh?

Minor technical difficulties just now. At approximately 12:50-51, while an interview was being played during Newsroom Live, the clip dropped midway and went to a black screen for a significant amount of time. The screen then cut to Shaun Ley talking and bringing viewers to another story without acknowledging the error, making it seems like they didn't realize the error.

The name is in serif, not sans - and looks really good. Some think it's "old fashioned" but I think the use of sans* fonts is so ubiquitous on TV that this is really fresh. (*edited)

That last sentence makes no sense.

Serif: "a slight projection finishing off a stroke of a letter in certain typefaces".

Sans: "without".

I meant sans is ubiquitous - accidentally typed serif.

This new graphic (top right) appeared on Newsroom Live earlier. Haven’t seen it before, could it be from the new package?

Probably. This is the BBC who can't just launch everything at the same time like a normal company.
