|A five-second ID promoting the 5:00 and 11:00 weeknight newscasts.|
Another five-second ID for the weather team and Mobile Weather Lab with the same slogan. This is the first time the station has chosen to put the Facebook and Twitter handles on the bottom of the screen instead of the website, much like NBC 4 has been doing. Interestingly, CBS 2 uses the wrong Twitter logo -- it's actually their icon from two logos ago (see Twitter's logo guide here).
CBS 2 has been using the same graphics look for three years. It began using this version of the "2" next to a shorter gold eye in May 1997 when "2 News" became "News 2" and "More News in Less Time, Every Time" became the slogan. Less than nine months later, that slogan was dumped but the basic eye-2 logo stayed the same until January 2003 when the eye became white. Now it appears that gold is being reintroduced to the logo.
CBS 2 has generally been very clean when unveiling new logos in that two versions rarely appear on the air at the same time for very long. The 1997 look debuted in promos just hours before the Sunday, May 11th 11 p.m. launch. In January 2003, the new look debuted in an 11 p.m. promo the weekend before the Monday morning launch. Perhaps the worst instance was from January until April 2000 when a new rectangle logo appeared in promos and opens but the "slanted" logo remained during newscasts.
