GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) -- WZZM 13 News has a new look and it is because we are listening to you, our viewers.
We're introduced new graphics and color codes on Tuesday, March 5th, 2013 at Noon.
The new streamlined look of the news features simple color coding on the bottom of your television screen to help make the newscasts more clear and understandable for you, our viewers.
This redesign will allow your eyes to naturally go to the most important information first and then to secondary details. The look tells you what's on the screen in detail, while telling you what's coming up without distracting from the story on the screen.
This completely new approach to news presentation is the result of an in-depth exploration by Gannett Broadcasting. The color coding aligns with Gannett's newspaper and media giant, USA Today.
Here is a breakdown of the new color coding system:
DARK RED: Sports
PURPLE: Lifestyle and Entertainment stories
ORANGE: Tech Stories
BRIGHT RED: Breaking News
LIGHT BLUE: Travel
GREY: Opinion stories
