Florida station updates open to stay ‘strong’ during Hurricane Michael recovery
In the updated open, the announcer says “Live … and ‘Panhandle Strong’ together … this is News 13 at 10 p.m.”
Meanwhile, the opening animation has been updated to include a bar with the “#PanhandleStrong” hashtag. The text has also been added above the station’s logo bug. Flashes of damage have also been added.
Incidentally, while the sequence does serve as the main open for the station’s 10 p.m. newscast, the broadcast also starts about a minute and thirty seconds before the open runs with a “Forecast First” and tease.
For this initial open, the announcer says “”Now … News 13 at 10 starts with your Forecast First,” followed by a sponsor mention.
