MacNeil also had a four-year stint at the BBC around the turn of the 70s, working on Panorama - hence his role as a analyst to the 1970 general election night programme.

Hearst's Fort Myers duopoly WBBH and WZVN are starting to transition to their group-wide graphics and music packages. No change by WBBH still, but WZVN has adopted the WMUR package and its custom Hearst Classic music package; Eric Gordon is still heard as their voice-over talent (they may have even changed their gallery and graphics systems from a fully-Chyron workflow to Grass Valley Ignite, Vizrt and ENPS, to align them with the other Hearst stations).

Worth remembering that Hearst only own WBBH. WZVN is a LMA with licence owner Montclair Communications.
