This is all relatively new information, most of which is alleged, but it’s all coming from an extremely reliable source that has always given me correct information in the past. According to this insider at NBC6, we should be seeing NBC Miami very soon, possibly by February. Here’s what i know, and don’t know.
- We will be seeing the new NBC O&O site design. Most likely, NBCMiami.com, since that is already registered by NBC and forwards to NBC6.net.
- Don’t expect a new set design. The way I’m seeing it, lets be thankful that we’re getting anything new at all.
- WTVJ won’t be getting new HD field cameras.
- Graphics are up in the air. I would be willing to go out and say WTVJ will get the new O&O graphics, but it’s still up in the air.
If WTVJ did get new graphics, they would look something like this:
Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that WTVJ is still on the market. The alleged “scoop” at NBC6 is that this year, they will be able to run the station as usual and work to make it better. You should also expect the hiring of new staff reporters. I’ll have more on the story later in the week. It’s also worth noting that, WTVJ is currently the only NBC O&O without the new site design and graphics.
