Changes at WJXT…

Jacksonville’s WJXT unveiled several new changes at the station this week. WJXT gets a newly refreshed rhomboid logo (left), replacing the classic box logo (right). We here at Florida News Center were happy to see that the station kept the signature five-color background (red, blue, purple, green, yellow) that has always said “WJXT.”

The station also received a new graphics package (images below), keeping the same color scheme but refreshing the previous graphics package (introduced in 2011), to the new Post-Newsweek stations shared graphics package.

Other changes include minor set logo changes, as well as new raised microphone flags. However changes are still in progress at WJXT. Note on the set image below, as the old logo still remains on the desk, while the set backdrop has been updated.

Check out the new PM and AM show graphics packages below.

Why does JAX TV news suck?….

(from FolioWeekley.com) – There’s one question visitors from outside the area often ask me — and a question I ask myself on occasion: Why does local TV news suck so much?

You’d think that, in a region with more than a million people, we’d have something better, that there would be room for more voices, more perspectives, more analyses, more deep dives.
