Looks like WESH is on a temporary set.
Hopefully they are getting something new. KCRA has had that same set for ten years.... it's starting to look dated & the lighting has looked awful lately. I'd like to see WESH integrate the newsroom behind the set back into the studio again.
WESH's set was really getting old to me. They've had it since going HD, a decade ago. While everyone else had at least one new set (WKMG and WOFL had like 2 or 3 since then and even News 13 has had a new set since then), WESH was stuck in its going-HD route with nothing tweaked or anything.
It would be nice for WESH to go the KCRA way or even the WTAE way. Whatever it is, I hope its a 200% upgrade for WESH. It was badly needed.
KCRA has a new set?
No... they are using the same set WESH has.
Doubt it will happpen but would be great if WESH returned to an open newsroom studio. It was built to be used as one and was used until the late 90s.
The new set just debuted. At first glance, I see a better version of the KARE set.
Here's a behind the scenes look. Seems like it goes live later this afternoon.
Looks like a Devlin job with a mix of KDKA and WBAL's news sets in there.
The set looks good. I wonder how it will appear on air. I am a bit worried at how overboard they went with some of the diagrid elements. Something's like the background light box are probably changeable but those big picture frame pieces may take some time.
Edit: Just scrubbed through the noon newscast and it looked good. The main 9x1 monitor wall seemed to feature a prerecorded scene with the "x" of the diagrid intersection over it. I don't know why or how to explain it but have a feeling that this type of set would work well for Florida - but not somewhere else.
WOW!! That set is amazing. Also, WESH FINALLY updated their opens. Steve Stone, Strive updates, and no more HD mentions.
Of course I have to leave vacation, the day the new set debuted but this is not the first time I got disappointed catching something new after leaving from vacation (2013, days after leaving, the current graphics debuted. Missed that too. The old graphics was there when I left the day of.)
Nice looking set, I know KOCO's set is outdated so hopefully they can get a new one soon
After looking through their newscast on NewsON it looks like the 9x1 was just used to playout the city scape. It didn't appear to be used for graphics or tosses.
Difficult editing. Sometimes Chrome on iPad is trickier.
Here's a video from Instagram showing the full studio.
Also, looking at the video it appears the diagrid only appears behind the big monitor wall. The rest of the backlit led panels appear to be squares - (speculation new package?)
Well, it is the first day and they probably didn't want a big meltdown. Give them a week or so. I watched on NewsON as well and I noticed they played the old 6pm open. I'm interested in seeing what music they use for 6 and the late shows. They used the same 2013 cut for Noon, 4, and 5. I would like them to use the new Evening News 2016 disc.
Looks very nice!
I like it !
Great set! Watched the open of WESH 2 News At 5 tonight and heard a version of the Hearst music I never heard before. Has WESH always had that version? I believe the music used for Sunrise is the normal 2012 version right?
This is fantastic!
Very sleek, versatile and well-designed.
One of the best sets of the year for sure.
