Fox 5 in Las Vegas has updated their graphics packages at least 3 times since a major change in early 2020. Since then, they have been sold by Meredith to Gray, which isn’t really the biggest caretaker of local media. Regardless, this station is pretty solid source for local news. Trust me, when I am in Las Vegas, I tune to 5 first before any other station. Of course this predated the new look with the awesome Propulsion Version 2 theme package from 615 Music.
This most recent update to the open just has high sex appeal, with really fast, snappy, alluring visual stimuli.It can only go down hill from here, right?
Just a reminder, this high sex appeal, is coming from a Fox affiliate! The logo originates from WNYW about 2 decades ago! Obviously the Fox 5 O&Os have ditched the logo, but it’s so ironic an affiliate can execute a really snappy, sexy eye and ear candy of a packaging. What did the O&Os do instead? Make the stations look like Sky News in Australia, or did Sky News take the O&O look from the states?
In case you want to see choppier version, but you can still get to see the sassiness
This is the best looking Fox affiliate in the country.
WRAL-TV was and is an institution in Triangle region of Raleigh, Fayetteville and Durham. You have to thank them for DTV and 4K HD; as they were the first. And still a local enterprise.
This open in 1989 is a low key, but has a nice effect to it. It shows the working people coming home from a long day of work, with the WRAL-TV staffers working harder to put on the broadcast. You see a kid jump onto a bus, while a crew is getting off an SNG truck (big for 1989); while someone puts some food a kitchen microwave, someone is editing a tape; and while someone is prepping the kitchen table, anchor Donna Gregory is overwhelmed with a stack of Betacams. Was an interesting idea. Their other daypart opens were lousy CGI – even for 1989 standards.
But don’t write them off the 1990s kicked butt. And 615 Music’s In-Sink was named after WRAL-TV’s Cindy Sink, their CSD at the time of composing. To this day WRAL’s overall look from that same time has remained, and In-Sink got a recent update when the station went to full 4K HD the fall of 2019.
