It isnt it. I think CBC missed a trick by dumping the signature. its so strong. Think NBC Chimes. Everyone know what it means. I know CBC wanted to try something new. But they certainly could have retained the signature and worked into whatever new theme they created. But overall its was sad when they dumped the theme. Thought i do like the new look. And the serious tone of the broadcast. I love the lower third shifted to the side of the screen halfway up. Id like to see it developed, because im not a fan of the colour or font but its a great idea. overall its a thumbs up from me.

CBC - The NATIONAL Launches tonight with 4 presenters and a new set. The show has departed from the brighter set used for previous Peter Mansbridge version. Now the set is darker. Most of the CBC news sets are white a bright including the CBCnewsNETWORK set. The National is currently beaten in the ratings by CTV National News and Global National so, it will be interesting to see if this new look and line up and push the ratings.


The new intro is really not working for me. Really needs a voiceover of some kind.

Last show before the relaunch; much more authoritative feel (starts at 1:45)

Feels like CBC took some inspiration from Terzake - the main evening news programme on Belgium's CANVAS. The sets are both dark and moody, the titles take influence from the 'newspaper' feel with still shots of the headline stories and the programme itself is more in-depth (think Newsnight).

KOTA - Rapid City, SD (Very small market - Market #170)
Quite a decent set for such a small market. Still not a fan of the stacked stone that seems to be the new trend. Apparently the studio and equipment upgrades cost around $10 Million. Gray Media group has taken an interesting development by using PTZ cams with a flat screen used as the autocue.

Well this is what happens when one of KNBC’s 85” portrait window dies:

They put up a pop up signage in the place. When they built the studio they should have made a sign that can fill the “window space” with a generic graphic.

I’m surprised that the monitors died so early in their life when they started using the studio in 2014.

The KNBC video wall issue appears to have been fixed. I’m not sure if it worked during the afternoon / early newscasts. I almost think this may have been a video wall server issue. I seem to remember now that during AM instagrams the Middle Wall has had alignment issues - where about the top quarter of the screen appeared black or was on the bottom on the screen. That or they had a spare handy and was installed quickly.
