  1. I don't see WABC making any real changes to their current setup any time soon other than a few updates along the way. The station along with all of Disney/ABC's New York operations are slated to move to a new facility at Hudson Square in the coming years, so they may be holding off on new set plans until then.
  2. The setup they had was unconventional for a news operation to begin with. https://jhdgroup.net/portfolio/wjzy-news-studios/ That's not a knock on JHD Group though as they do some very good quality work (and did come back to put in a proper news area), but you should never make your news studio into one big lounge.
  3. I will say this about Nexstar, they're doing a much better job with the in-house set fabrications these days than in years past. When it comes to WLNS' new digs, they literally left no corner behind in that studio. Now if only they could've done a new 6 logo rather than keep the skinny one they've been using.
  4. I figured this would wind up being a refresh of their existing set as the bones of the old FX setup remain largely intact with some new pieces brought in from BDI, but good lord, the lighting and the shot blocking needs work.
  5. Corporate can only do so much. The rest is largely handled by the people managing the station.
  6. Granted, it's a very good concept, but it's missing the Channel 5 imagery. With a few tweaks, this would've been an improvement compared to the opens WRAL currently uses.
  7. Allbritton had been notoriously cheap when it came to set upgrades for HD, and while Sinclair did spend money giving some of their stations new sets over the years post-merger, you still have some like the example you gave with WSET who have received very little from the mothership.
  8. The layout of KPIX's set had some similarities to the standardized looks that KCBS/KOVR/WCBS/WBBM/WFOR/WJZ all received from BDI despite it being much older. At the very least, the walls could've been refreshed in addition to replacing the desks rather than just doing a complete tear down and rebuild. KYW has been on the same set since 2007 when they moved into their new building. Since then, it's been refreshed at least twice: First was when the current desk was put in place, and the second was when all of the faux wood was removed and replaced with blue duratrans throug
  9. It really does. Just wish Gray had a better CSD than what they currently have.
  10. Not gonna lie. Seeing these graphics used at WGCL is giving me old Atlanta's NewsChannel vibes. I like how WALA implemented this look. However, I have one complaint: WHAT THE BLANK IS UP WITH THAT RANDOM FLYING WHITE BOX DURING THE OPEN?!!
  11. WHBQ airs the program at 4:00 in the morning.
  12. I just noticed they managed to put Fleur De Lis accents throughout the studio. A nice custom touch to what is otherwise an in-house job by Nexstar. EDIT: I like the new digs WHNT rolled out. It looks like they borrowed a lot of ideas from KTVX's set and improved on the design. Well done!
  13. Looking at the time lapse posted today, WGNO's new set is an in-house job, as in the whole thing is being built from scratch in the studio.
  14. I wouldn't mind seeing WREG return to its old "News 3" branding, tbh. The "News Channel" branding is okay, but I think now would be a good time for change.
  15. FX confirmed tonight that this was indeed their work (I kinda figured it was):
