Fox-owned webs’ newscasts change look

News Brief

The 10 p.m. newscasts for the Fox-owned TV stations in Gotham and L.A. have a new look that’s actually not so new — at least not to viewers of Fox News Channel.

Over the past two weeks, both stations have overhauled their on-air graphics to look a lot more like those of FNC. It’s all there: The omnipresent headlines at the bottom of the screen, the red-and-blue color scheme, even the spinning Fox News logo.

Gotham station WNYW has even adopted a variation of the FNC slogan: Its Web site declares the station “the most powerful name in local news.”

Changes — all under the direction of the new Fox TV Stations exec team led by Roger Ailes — are expected to roll out at all of the net’s owned outlets.
