WKYC got a new logo, along with new graphics and set. I hate the new logo. Hate it! And they removed the NBC peacock from the ‘3’ yet again. Ugh!!!

Absolutely awful!!!

Tegna appears to be doing its best to ruin this station. That morning show rebrand just screams fluff and insipidness.

This was done by the station itself, not by Tegna.

And for those who want to hate on it, I’d take it over the Boring McGraphics from Scripps, Sinclair, Fox and Nexstar, hands down. The promos have a European vibe to them and is unlike anything that has ever been attempted on US broadcast television.

What I’m not a fan of is the fluff and non-news actually in the news, but that’s an industry-wide crisis.

The “3” and the NBC peacock rotate every five seconds on the newscast L3s. And most promotional graphics have the peacock visually present with that “3”.


I have no need for Boring McGraphics, tyvm

I like the Nexstar graphics package a lot.

The FOX package has variations that differ a bit from station to station. WJBK's version is OK...nothing special.

Sinclair's stuff looks fine on their smaller market TV stations but is overly simplistic for their larger market stations; I do like that "look" on their weather graphics.

My favorite graphics by far are those found on Graham Media Group stations; the recent refresh is outstanding!

I wonder how long it will take before Cleveland's hospitals are overrun with seizure patients!
