Update 8:09pm: thanks to one of our readers, here is video from today’s 5pm debut
– ‘live from the news station’ is no more. The open is super short, like the WHDH opens have been for a while now.
And so far there are no talent bumpers either. Actually they took that out about a couple years ago.
it’s over ’till 6pm.
Overall … very 7News. It’s them to a t. Too bad it looks so bad on the online feed for those of us stuck in the cold Northwest or elsewhere 🙂
– 7Sports open pretty hot. They even get their own lower thirds
– the weather graphics look to be from WHDH also?
– one of the bumps before break was from WHDH, a bit mish mashy having the different circle 7s
– the open is nice but … a bit loud … I hoped they’d tone the screetching sound effects for the new look
– they’ve updated the weather set too, or at least the desk.
– is it just me or are the lower thirds gynormous? eesh…
Update 5:02pm: 7News in HD. With very flashy graphics. finally.
Looks like WSVN is flipping the switch on HD about 5 minutes from now for the 5pm news. Tie yourselves up for the sofa and hold on tight
another video from the 10pm after the jump
Thanks for Frank for uploading this one:
