I love the spinning globe openning and music is better, more retro, now. Studio is better as well but I still don't get the shape of that desk.

The shape of the desk is a holdover from the Diane Sawyer era of World News Tonight. It is nice to hear the old Edd Kalehoff theme return, although I will miss listening to the Hans Zimmer theme.

Jesus wept. That headline sequence takes an age to get through just to start a full news bulletin.

Imagine watching that unfold with David Muir announcing the headlines while you're watching him at home every night. It feels excessive, tedious & looks like a chore to watch it all the time. Why did ABC News in America take it to this level if the viewers become eventually annoyed to make them not watch the bulletins after a short period of time.

I don't get their strategy if they think this new headline sequence was a good idea in hindsight.

WGBH Boston, PBS, USA. Recently, WGBH 2, the PBS member station behind Frontline , the PBS World channel and the Masterpiece franchise, introduced a new branding including a modified version of their long time logo from this

To this

They adopted a new colour and dropped the "W" from their on-air branding (but "WGBH" is still used in its formal name)

ETA: Per GBH, the "W" is off to a new journey

Of course in English & Welsh criminal law, the term 'GBH' would conjure up Grievous Bodily Harm.

I guess they use a different term in the USA, unless they a planning it as a crime drama channel. Very Happy

The 'GBH' in WGBH's call sign comes from Great Blue Hill, which is where their first transmitter was located.

While I agree with you that the WNT headline sequence goes for far too long, their viewers must not have a problem with it considering it's the most-watched news bulletin (and indeed recently, the most-watched show full stop).
