A couple Saturdays ago, I posed a Resync of NewsNation based on various airchecks I had captured from inception to early 2021. The theme package is Stephen Arnold Music, composed exclusively for the network. But it really has a sedating sonic branding. Since News Nation is the former WGN America, the same WGNA that ran WGN-TV’s local news for many years up till aprox 2015, I redid everything with 615 Music’s Chicago’s Very Own – the same sounds that has been heard on their air since mid 2007. The theme has aged well…
BTW: In case you missed the point: Chicago’s Lollapalooza music festival and resync – get it ?
For a while, NBC has provided a CBSN like streaming service called NBC News Now. But ironically a couple decades before, it was actually name of a theme package originally for owned and operated stations (and their affiliates). I took the main closing cut and looped a very long bumper and it actually doesn’t sound that bad. That Savanah anchor though… she’s easy on the eyes! 😀
Used QuickTime Player to screencapture the browser, used analog audio to capture the audio (as if it was playing out, but using it to record instead. Used Audacity to cut up the NBC News Now theme package, and then used Avid’s Media Composer to mix the two together.
