WBZ Promos

From the very talented Wendy McMahon at WBZ in Boston - I found a link to some cool promos from WBZ.

Check them out here:

KNBC "We're 4 LA"

Here is KNBC in Los Angeles with "We're 4 LA"...

Music was done by 615 Music - which I think has done MUCH better work... this is not very memorable.

Weather Update

So this was the promo WFIE did afterwards...

Scary Stuff

This isn't promo related - but interesting to watch none the less.

What happens when a tornado gets too close to home?

New WCBS WX Promos

Here are some spots from WCBS in New York. I'm not sure if I like them - as the ones WCCO did were infinitely better. I think its the talent that I don't like in these... they seem... silly. The production is nice and simple - but it makes the weather weasels look less than credible. I think the point is to show how much these people know about weather - but it comes across as trivial.

Check em out...

WKMG Promos

Ok, these spots are from the competition in my market - so I'm automatically not supposed to like them ... but I wanted to get the opinion of others. I think the anchors do an ok job with it - but it just seems so... fake. So staged.

Now, is that because I'm a tv guy or do all viewers see through this stuff? I can't honestly say I know for sure that viewers are smart enough for that... maybe they eat this up. These spots actually make me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

Watch. Discuss.

I will say WKMG has done some really good work - but these I'm not so sure about.
