    Looks like the Nexstar station in Salt Lake City has received a major upgrade.

    I am salivating. Kudos to Nexstar for actually putting out a pretty good set design that doesn't include a certain desk that was copied from KLAS (the industrial theme is an interesting choice). Also, they've gone back to using the "News 4 Utah" branding, which hasn't been used in years.



    EDIT: It appears they have switched from Overture to Guardian for music.

    The logo that reads "News ABC 4 Utah" is a kludge, but you know what I don't see anywhere?

    Purple!

    The urban, steel-bridge themes seem more New York or Chicago than Salt Lake City. Either way, gorgeous studio. Good on Nexstar.

    Thankfully the purple is gone! I believe that the opens and L3 have changed too. I didn't like that KABC imitation.

    This is not a “set in a box”. This is 100% customized for the market.

    Nothing from Nexstar is ever in a box except for the computers, monitors and chairs. Everything else is built from the ground up locally.

    At least KTVX didn't get the "Dalek Desk".

    Looking good! It looks very cozy and welcoming, too; perfect fit for a Rocky Mountains TV station.

    Looks good! Are those the new Nexstar ABC graphics?

    They might as well be. Come to think of it, the graphics look sorta like a combination of KABC and WABC's current looks. Need to see it all in action though to make a judgement call.

    Great set. For the background behind the anchor desk--it seems like a lot of effort for "depth" for seemingly low res imagry. Wouldn't it make sense to put another monitor wall back there?

    Nexstar can’t seem to stick with a color for the Utah shape of the logo. First it was red in 1994, then blue in 2007, then orange-redish in 2013, now back to red in a span of 23 years.

    The change from red to blue happened during the Clear Channel days at KTVX. The change to the current logo happened almost a year after Nexstar purchased the station.

    Honestly the current logo (excluding the massive "UTAH" plastered on it, and the ABC logo that must be stuck on it to appease the network) is timeless and would have worked in any era.
