"Nightcast" At 11:00

Last night, "The News at 11:00" was renamed to "Nightcast". There are many changes to newscast, besides Angela Rae and Ernie Anastos. The opening begins with the CBS 2 Information Network animation (with the sources fly by), and the announcer saying "You're watching the CBS 2 Information Network", but it wasn't the usual bright background. Instead, there were nighttime views of the city. The opening went like, "Live from Fifth Avenue, this is Nightcast." No anchors in the opening though. Here's the "Nightcast" opening. (thanks to Delaware Valley Media Watch for the online video). The graphics also changed to look darker, but still look similar to the regular graphics (just the "colors" part was changed). They also had an opening for sports and weather, which went like, "Now, Nightcast Weather with David Rogers." There was a new theme and a new "Coming Up" screen. Snapshots of the new newscast is coming soon in the near future.
