    I noticed on most of the videos on cbsnewyork.com and on their YouTube channel that they are doing all the newscasts on the WLNY 10/55!set, and when they goto weather, they just toss it to the green wall, is it me or is their something new or something going on?

    IMG_2258.PNG It has been CONFIRMED on Facebook by Chris Wragge that they are on a temporary set for the next 2 months for a new and improved set!

    Wonder if there going to make it better then the best set of all the CBS O&Os KDKA-TV. Their set is still amazing 1 year later.

    Does anyone know if WCBS is getting backend upgrades during the set build? I know WFOR's set is much smaller, but they seem to have built it way faster than WCBS has.

    A bit old, but I thought I'd share here. Has anyone found more recent updates?

    I love the KDKA set because it's so versatile - no hard branding at all, the desk moves in and out easily, and the weather center can be hidden. I also like the refurbished WBZ set - if WJZ got a set I would like them to get that one. It's technologically up to date but still warm.

    Didn't realize they had that much space. From what I remember of the old set it seemed cramped.

    It is their flagship; it is possible. But it won't be easy to top ( or even match ) a masterpiece like KDKA's.

    Unless they go with more portrait monitor walls - with a system to display different graphics or reporters on each monitor.

    46 is a huge studio... I can think of at least four separate occasions that 46 housed two sets, and that's dating back to the 80s. If that last set was cramped that would be more due to studio construction than anything.

    That last CBS 2 set did seem pretty cramped so it's weird to see all this space they have/had to work with. Also, I know it's been mentioned but their set still seemed pretty new.

    Speaking of KDKA, after seeing the Pittsburgh news on an actual TV recently, their set really didn't look as good when compared to WTAE or WPXI, at least from what I saw. I think WPXI's set looks the best on TV, then WTAE, followed by KDKA.

    I agree, the set was pretty solid despite being 6 years old. It definitely held up better than WABC's, which seems awfully drab nowadays and could use a refresh.

    I hope WCBS gets an LED screen like WNBC, I really don't like the gaps in the monitor walls seen on KCBS and WFOR's sets.

    I'm sorry, but with 'TAE having all that room before... then decide to do what they did with their new set? Don't like it sorry.

    WTAE doesn't have the best looking set in the market, it just looked the best on TV.

    I was creeping on the CBS Broadcast Center geotag, and found this shot with a bit of Studio 46 progress:

    Definitely looks like its going to be a copycat of the KCBS set, which isn't a bad thing!
