What are the likely chances TWC will revamp the local forecast with a new look?

The local forecast badly needs a new look, but it will likely be years before it happens if it ever does.

One can only hope. They've never stayed the same more than 4-5 years. Now its been EIGHT!?!

Not only that, but the longest icons (from an on-air standpoint, not factoring in some cable systems kept STARs using previous icons until as late as 2014) stayed the same before was just short of 9 years, from January 1998-December 2006, but now, the current icon set is over 10 years old. Do you think there'd be any chance TWC would have a relaunch or do you think they'd go off the air before that would happen? And would Local on the 8s ever get a facelift or would it be more likely to be discontinued altogether? The only change since the WATT launch in November 2013 was the font and LDL change in August 2019.

At this point, I imagine it's more likely they drop the full-screen LOT8s than refresh them.

It sure seems to be trending that way.   :thumbdown:
