  1. That third one is a mystery as we haven't heard another Meredith station announce they were getting a new set. At least three are probably overdue for one.
  2. McAfee was a former NFL kicker for the Indianapolis Colts, and has done some college football analysis for both Fox and ESPN, so bringing him on board to do XFL analysis in addition to his current work in radio, on ESPN, and in the WWE just made perfect sense.
  3. I'd say give it a couple of years, but considering WITI's past, that station has been sort of the oddball of the Fox O&Os when it came to standardization.
  4. Simply put, the Fox O&O experiment in Charlotte is coming to an end after almost seven years and having to build a news department from the ground up. There will be some cost cutting afterwards, but Fox probably would've liked to have unloaded KTBC as well if it weren't for the fact Nexstar already owned KXAN in the Austin market.
  5. Kinda hard to say who designed the new space. A lot of the elements are unfamiliar and not something you would typically see from the usual suspects.
  6. Now that I think about it, that setup reminds me of the WeatherPlex KAKEland used to have: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR3SKHLGwTY
  7. I've never seen a news studio with TWO weather pods on it before. My guess is KCTV is getting one of those sets. Can't quite say who the other might be.
  8. New studio debut is now set for Wednesday at Noon according to a video on WRAL's Facebook page. EDIT: According to same said video, their new 4K-ready set is located in Studio A, which had been used for various programs over the years until recently. EDIT #2: New set debut will now happen on Thursday at Noon. Also, here's a timelapse video of its construction. https://www.wral.com/new-wral-studio-to-debut-thursday/18731912/
  9. Looks like the new studio debut got pushed back a day or two as they're still on the newsroom set as of this evening.
  10. In the case of WATN/WLMT, they were already at rock bottom to begin with ratings-wise, so it's not like TEGNA could've done any worse for them. As much as Nexstar was willing to invest in making the duopoly competitive, it wasn't enough to move the needle in the right direction.
  11. The most recent version of WRAL's newsroom dates back to 2001 right when they started doing HD newscasts. This article says a new facility had been constructed, but I'm not quite sure if it was a brand new build in a brick-and-mortar sense or just a complete tear-down and rebuild of the open newsroom area they had since the 1980s. http://history.capitolbroadcasting.com/media-assets/timelapse-wral-newsroom-interior-expansion/?from=9

  13. Nope. The opens are still the same, except now the 4:00pm news has been assimilated with the new look. New First at 4 Open: Most recent open:
