The Point is the on-air name used by TiBB1 in Western Pennsylvania, the West Virginia panhandle, and Garrett County, Maryland.

HistoryEdit

The Point was formed on August 27, 2015 as the on-screen brand for the broadcast regions of Pittsburgh and Erie, Pennsylvania, as it (like Granada and Toronto/Ottawa) decided to create its own on-air region. The region name is named after the nickname for the fountain at Point State Park in Pittsburgh. In some on-air continuity announcements, the region is sometimes called TiBB1 Pittsburgh. In 2017, due to the new look of TiBB1; LDN and its sister region, The Point; got new logos.

StudiosEdit

The Point is based in Pittsburgh whilst its control room operations are shared between itself and LDN, The Point's sister region in the United Kingdom.

IdentityEdit

The services' on-air identity is a mixture of the national and regional TiBB1 idents.

However, the endboard shown in the region is the national endboard, without any captions.

ProductionsEdit

The Point itself produces TiBB Dansk Melodi Grand Prix and co-produces LIVEWIRE, the TiBB Eurovision and Christmasvision Song Contests, and the TiBB Podcast. It produces regional news and weather from its studios in Pittsburgh.
