There was pizza and cake in the KRIV newsroom Thursday as the station launched a new look and a new high tech radar called FOXRAD. John Dawson tells The Insite it is the most powerful radar in the country. Also there are new graphics with a new logo at KRIV. Just check the local news here in Houston at 5 – 9 am, Noon or 9pm and drop back by The Insite and tell us what you think…And yes that is lead anchorman Mike Barajas hanging around the FOXRAD cake….

    I like the new graphics – especially the one in the lower left corner that shows the time as the box rotates.

    How can an affiliate steal something from their own network?

    In case you haven’t noticed, changes are being made all across the Fox board… changes, in the sense that all affiliates are being morphed into little clones of the parent Fox News Channel.

    The graphics are mandated for all Fox O&O stations. Hence, the graphics you see on Fox 26 will be very similar to KDFW’s Fox 4 package in Dallas/Ft Worth and etc…

    OMFG!! I hate this new look, it make FOX 26 look national, but I always thought Fox26 would stay local, for like forever, the new strom seeker is nice but I just HATE the new look.

    When will people be able to have instant access to Foxrad’s Radar online? The other Houston news casts let you view their radars. They even let you access their site. Why doesn’t Fox26 here in Houston let you access things like the weather and traffic?
