I just turned on Channel 13 in Los Angeles (KCOP) and it has a new watermark in the corner "My 13 Los Angeles"

KCOP Channel 13 used to be "UPN13" until The CW announcemnet. They then ditched that the next day to become just "13"

Now, it is "My 13" with the logo looking like these:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_network_tv

The My Network TV network starts September, but it looks like many stations in the US, and now KCOP 13 Los Angeles have already adopted the logo on air

If people think some of the tickers are obstructive on Australian TV, you should take a look at this; http://youtube.com/w...earch=NBC Today

lol thats local affiliates for ya. I would have thought WIN (an affiliate not a network silly.gif ) would have made their own ticker to put on the Today show by now - many US stations override the network ticker to place their own.

I've often thought that too!

Does Today on Nine still have a tikcer? I thought they dumped it?

I often thought that Prime would make it's viewers very happy, and could localise Sunrise a bit by adding their own weather ticker over the national one that comes as part of Sunrise.

I would think it would be pretty easy to do three weather tickers out of the Canberra Broadcast Centre, one for each Prime station. It would take someone typing in the temps for each main city once in the morning, and the rest is auto-mated. I'm sure it could be figured out.

For example Prime Southern NSW could have

CAN Canberra
WLG Wollongong
ORG Orange
WAG Wag
SYD Sydney
BEG Bega
DUB Dubbo

etc etc

Isn't the ticker on Today ment to be a thin strip that comes out of the white area under the DOG, put in by the affiliates, who also put the time and temp on the DOG?

That has got to be the most disracting DOG or watermark I have ever seen! Are all the MyNetwork affiliates adopting it?

They did dump it hence why I'm surprised that WIN haven't adopted one anyway. But then again they don't exactly think for themselves now do they.

90210 / Party of Five promo.

Sharp eyed forumers will recognise that Ten ripped off this promo style in early 1998, albiet with a larger variety of colors than just Gold, Although it was one of the better end cap styles Ten ever had they dropped it 4 months in for a non-generic look.





End Cap (Copied by Ten in early 1998 (Ten had different colors per the day of the week Sat/Sun = Gold, Mon = Blue, Tue = Purple, Wed = Green, Thur = Red, Fri = Silver)
