The previous logos were so much better!

However, I can tell you unequivocally Tom was not responsible for the current logo. In fact, he did design all the previous logos that many here seem to appreciate.
RIP
Who is/was responsible for the current logo?

That time & temp bug completely bastardizes what would otherwise be beautiful lower thirds!


Lori Bennett and Bob Walker have turned WLAV from an iconic classic rock station into a ratings boondoggle. Sad.

The new graphics? Meh. They seem to be an attempt at a Readers Digest Large Print Edition for TV on some of their bumpers.

The use of these little pop-up translucent weather maps of the state over a seemingly reflective black glass-top stand by the wx team are hilarious, especially when they are displaying radar - there's no Lake Michigan, or anything west of the mitt to see what's coming!

The most disturbing aspect of this gfx pkg change was the coinciding change of the stations' VO guy. I wasn't a fan of the previous one, but his replacement is disappointing. Sounds like he's got a mouthful of... something.

Do TV stations like brewvine & 10 employ just one person to handle the production/promotion/gfx/vo for station imaging spots and bumpers, or was this just coincidence?

BTW - the passionate discussions over logos in particular displayed in this forum by some here has both amazed and amused me over the years. We lost many of those due to hacking data losses and what I have to assume were database trim actions by MW, but I remember some reworking logos on their own and posting them here. Is there such a thing as a logo fetish? :blink

I agree regarding the weather maps over the black table. I don't blame them for trying it out, but I can't say I'm crazy about it. I don't see what value that adds to their weather forecast. Does it help me understand the forecast or is it just supposed to make me say "oooh, look what they can do?"

I understand wanting to be top-notch, and that's what they have been for a long time. But, it appears to me that they are trying to compete with Detroit stations. Come on, this is Northern MI, don't be ridiculous with your tech.
