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.
