7 News has updated their graphics package. The revised lower thirds are sleeker and more translucent than before, though they continue to use the same blue-and-red color scheme that has been in place since the early naughties. The newscast also received updated opens and backgrounds, and the weather set has been retouched. The prior package had been in use since June 2008 when the station switched to high-definition newscasts.
TV38 may soon be showing programming from MyNetworkTV. Broadcasting and Cable is reporting that WBIN, the station formerly known as WZMY, will be ending its four year relationship with the network in order to focus on locally produced programming. A possible replacement for the network appears to be WSBK. The results of this speculation will come to light in time.
If you recall, then-independent WZMY secured the MyNetworkTV affiliation because it had been branding itself as “MyTV” since 2004. No word on the fate of the TV38 News at 9pm if this change comes to fruition.
