Uh, most of us don't automatically know what Tegna's graphics look like. Do you have any examples?

Well, I'm not surprised they wouldn't make H*** changes right away. Toledo is very much a "don't rock the boat" kind of place, a lot of people's idea of living the dream is retiring from the same plant Dad did. Plenty still call WTOL "Toledo Eleven" and WIOT "FM 104" even though neither has advertised itself as such for a long time now.

What's Tegna's reputation as a station owner? IMO, Raycom kind of ran WTOL on the cheap by the end and it showed with their news falling behind WTVG after having been #1 here for decades.

I don't mind the graphics or music. Sounds like it fits a serious newscast, which is what WTOL/WUPW should be going for as opposed to WTVG constantly patting itself on the back playing "This Is Home!" and Jeff Smith and Sashem Brey giggling at themselves every 2 minutes.

I can't believe WTOL promoted Andrew Kinsey to lead anchor when Jerry Anderson retired. Heavy breathing and lip smacking does not make for a pleasant listen.

Yeah, Laura always did a good job both on 24 and on 36 for a long time before that. Not sure what she's been up to since leaving WNWO.
