Not a huge fan of the new look GMA, I think there’s a fine line between an energetic open and just being too much. Forcing circular logos into square graphics rarely looks good either.

Is the American trend of swinging round at different screens with a steadicam recent? Today seem to use it quite a lot too.

Oooooh no thank you!

They had a pretty decent look a few years back, and some great music to go with it, but every rebrand they've done these past few years has been worse than what came before IMO. I seem to remember the look was good enough five years or so ago that Good Morning Britain based a fair few bits off it, to the extent that a storyboard for the opening titles someone posted here even included a shot of the GMA set edited to hide the massive GMA logo!

Nope nope nope. GMA has been a bit much for me for a while now. The graphics and the clunky set and the irritating music. Too much too early in the morning. But again most people are not sat down watching it anyway. Its typically background noise whilst most people are getting readying in the morning, if they havent left home already.
I'm here to give you something to talk about!

So they ditched their main tune all together?? Shame, new music sounds bland and is hard to hear behind the headlines. Not sure how it sounds during the voiceover.

They also copy Today by making the opening shot as boring as possible.

CBS news producing stations have updated their lower thirds. About a month and a half ago they started moving their station bug with the time/temp/web address and social media further to the right in the 16:9 safe zone. Here’s the graphics progression:

Before (poor image quality coming from their onset “Cube” which didn’t have proper lighting and uses a PTZ camera):

Bug moved to the right (taken tonight from a KTVT that hasn’t updated the lower thirds):

*

And finally updated:

As of tonight WCBS, KCBS, WBBM, KYW, KPIX, WBZ, WFOR and KDKA have all made the change. While KTVT, WCCO, KCNC and WJZ have not.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Worth a read about NBC's plan to launch (or expand their existing) CBSN/ABC News Live-style streaming service.

Slightly baffling comment from the boss of NBC News in the article

"the combination of NBC News and Sky News makes us the largest news organisation in the world"

He also said: “There are conversations about cooperation [b/w NBC and Sky], including bureaus and editorial — for example working together on Brexit in the UK, and the Trump administration in the U.S.,”

Even adding all of NBC (and CNBC, and MSNBC), Euronews, and Sky News (+Sky TG24, Sky News Arabia)

I'm still not sure in terms of journalists employed that it's bigger than the BBC, Reuters, AP, Bloomberg, AFP, Xinhua... could go on.

With the Comcast deal done, this means Sky News will not be the sister network to Fox News Channel anymore, as it was called a lot, especially during the 2000s.
