A New Anchor Opening at 5:30!

This afternoon at 5:30, CBS 2 opened with a new opening, with the anchors in it! This is the first time a "regular" opening has had anchors in it since they changed from "NEWS 2" to the "CBS 2 Information Network" on October 30th. CBS 2's "Nightcast" first introduced the anchor opening on January 28th. The new openings begin with the normal "You're watching the CBS 2 Information Network," but it had the Information Network "sounds". Then the announcer says, "Now, live from Fifth Avenue, this is The News at 5:30, with Angela Rae, Todd McDermott, and David Rogers' forecast." It ends with the CBS 2 logo in front of a city bridge. The music is also different than the old openings. The News at 5:30 is the only newscast so far with these new openings. Here are snapshots from this evening's new opening:
