  1. The main Huntsville transmitters are on Monte Sano... located on the east side of Huntsville. Hytop is where the National Weather Service Radar is located. It's in a region called Sand Mountain. WAFF struggles in Sand Mountain, despite having a dedicated bureau to the area. But, people living in northeast Alabama have trouble picking up 48. They've worked in the past to boost their signal over there, but nothing seemed to help. WAFF's main transmitter sits the lowest on Monte Santo, which doesn't help with the signal issue in the mountainous areas east of Huntsville. I almost guarantee you this is another attempt to fix the problem.
  2. They dropped it when they rolled out the new graphics.
  3. Today is launch day at WAFF. https://www.waff.com/2021/12/08/new-set-unveiled-waff-48-news/?fbclid=IwAR3KzCzuYCEbcVcWQTUbxVJ9CyIEpL-rJgO4qljyZNU8xWHCllwmx-AWVtA I’m interested in how they made the studio larger. The only thing I can think of is they took over a green room or server space.
  4. It looks like a large-ish room in a convention center.
  5. It allows for better timing. GMA is incredibly focused on a high story count in the 7am hour.
  6. WAFF's studio is very small. It'll be interesting to see what they do with it. There's an old server room behind the studio they could possibly expand to. The building was once a three business strip mall housing a jewelry store, mattress business, and the Boy's and Girl's Club. The building has ceilings that are just a tad higher than normal business drop ceilings.
  7. It looks like WAFF in Huntsville is the latest Gray station to have their Raycom set demolished.
  8. I wonder if those are actual monitors, or if they're duratrans? Interesting a station in Augusta, GA would get the same treatment as a station in San Francisco, California.
  9. Well, KOLD debuted their new set last night.
  10. At least their bug is legible opaque. Some are not.
  11. Looks like WANE is next on the list for the New Set Train at Nexstar. The old set dates back to the LIN days, about 2011 or 2012.
