I have a minor update on WSVN’s HD transition.
No exact date still but most likely before or after the Olympics, which begin August 8.
One of the last things delaying them is the lack of HD graphics. WSVN’s graphic department is too busy with everything else. Several creative directors leaving hasn’t helped things either
I’m told WHDH and WSVN’s graphics package will be almost identical though.
Speaking of WHDH, Boston TV blog The Scoop says WHDH will be HD by July 15th. They’re putting up a green screen behind the anchor desk after sweeps with a pre-recorded loop of the newsplex while work is being done to the studio. Mainly removing the TV wall and replacing it with a giant projection screen!
