SEATTLE - On Wednesday June 18, viewers will see a new graphical look come to KING 5 News.

At the bottom of your screen you will see a line telling you about the story you're watching, often with extra detail.  Another line will show the next three stories coming up, so you can see what's ahead.

It's all part of the change with KING 5's merger with national media company Gannett and keeping with other Gannett TV stations around the country.

The on screen graphics are also color coordinated: blue for news, red for breaking news, yellow for weather, green for stories involving money and personal finance, much like Gannett's national newspaper USA Today.

Other on screen graphics will also change and can now be built in the so-called computer "cloud" where software and data storage have been heading making them accessible anywhere.

This change will allow reporters to create their own graphics and download them directly to editing computers be that in the newsroom or on a mountain.
