    I caught the last ten minutes of the 5pm show tonight (3/4/2017) and it looked like they were broadcasting from in front of a wall of monitors that were put together to make a small temp set. Hopefully they are getting something new. They've pretty much had the same set with a few tweaks since 2005 when CBS bought the station from Sinclair. KOVR has a big newsroom/studio combo layout that would look really sharp if it's designed right.

    Makes me wonder if CBS is starting to roll out a new look opting out of standardized sets since most of them have the FX Spaceship bubble looking desk. (KPIX, KOVR, WBBM, WCBS) [KTVT but more square like]

    While other CBS stations are prepping their second or third sets WJZ got new lighting...

    'JZ could maybe sprinkle some Old Bay on that set to spice it up...

    My public high school actually had huge containers in their condiments table that served Old Bay. I just saw the other day that there were Old Bay flavored cheese balls/puffs and I wanted to puke.

    You know that the Sinclair HQ is half a block away from the manufacturing plant of Old Bay and the rest of the McCormack spices? I live five miles by air from it and let me tell you the odor travels far.

    Looks like the "set" is just a bunch of flats with the O&O graphics on them with some monitors in front.



    It's certainly no KDKA temporary set...

    Throwing this out here too... Just got done watching KCRA 3 and it looks like they've done some lighting tweaks, possibly changed out some light fixtures in the past few weeks or so. The lighting and set used to have a warm colorful look to it, now it looks stark and harsh with overly light blue tones; like overly bright LED fixtures or something are installed. Not flattering to the anchors or set at all.

    Went looking to see if there's been any progress on this since their newsroom camera looks towards the studio. Sure enough, it looks like set construction has spilled into the newsroom.

    (about 50 seconds in)

    That set will last into the 22nd century.

    Because. It's WJZ.
