    So around Thanksgiving they'll reveal the new set? Thank Christ! It's been too long.
    Also on sweeps month too? Perfect timing.

    Wait. Wasn't their 40th anniversary last year?

    Yes, it was ... not sure why they said that. But the video said "in the coming weeks"

    Just aired a report saying it'll debut in September and they'll be using the PPL Center for every newscast until then. Interesting!

    Bo Koltnow mentioned this morning that meteorologist Lauren Due is leaving WFMZ next week and moving to Texas. Dan Skeldon will be taking over weather duties on weekend mornings.
    Maybe Jacqueline & Lauren couldn't deal with the set changes. o_O

    Oh no, I like her! She recently got married, though I thought she was from around here so she must be going to another station.

    I wonder who will do weekend nights? Dan Skeldon has done those a few times. I like him, he's very passionate.

    Huh. I didn't think WFMZ's set was all that dated. All they really needed to do was update the RPs in the back. I hope the new set is more than just another monitor wall.

    My guess is the graphics get updated in September too.

    So Chandi Lowry appears to be at some weird, small desk, someone (I'm assuming at the studio) and not the PPL Center - but the PPL Center was used for the morning show this morning. Very odd.

    I was wondering the same thing - looked like they saved a few pieces of the old set. Could have been the old weather desk?

    Clayton is from Nazareth, so it's nice to have a home-town person. Maybe he'll stick around awhile! And I like Dan, too, so I'm glad they hired him!
