    Pretty darned good temp setup despite the 'job fair booth' vibes of that background, and it looks like they even have the 'fern couch' to the right for community interest/advertorial interviews.

    I disagree. This looks pretty bad. At the very least, they could've steamed that background so it isn't so wrinkled.

    Well if it only took 2  weeks. I wouldnt expect any thing spectacular.  ....

    How wrong this was. WMAQ did a spectacular job with a small space. So now WLS has the oldest set in market again. However, it still looks pretty good, I can't see them getting rid of it. Maybe update that monitor wall?

    If this set were replacing a set like WALA’s, I’d agree with you. A set isn’t even the most important part of a newscast, the journalistic product is. The problem is that Nexstar doesn’t seem to think this way when it comes to some of their stations. They place so much emphasis on building sets for stations that don’t really need them (the set this replaced wasn’t even 10 years old,) and the new sets look dated even at launch (see WTTV for another example of this.) While I agree with @tyrannical bastard that this set is the best in the market, that’s not a very high bar. The competitors are Sinclair (speaks for itself) and WALA, which hasn’t updated their set since they first went HD. IMHO, if a new set is that important to your news operation, it should be built to last.

    Meh. "Almost 10 years" is a pretty darn good run for a news set. Presentation does matter.

    The article to me reads like they're only building a "state-of-the-art weather center" in the space and not trying to replace the current news set. Weather is something that wasn't given much attention on the current O&O sets, so that makes sense. 

    But that's a lot of space for just a weather center. That 2008 set was pretty spacious, and it included a nice sized  weather set. It would also be kind of weird for the weather person to be in one area of the building and the rest of the news team in another.

    Ouch, that desk is small. The CSD should’ve put a bigger desk in with all of that free space.

    Eh, I don't know how much larger the desk really needs to be. The big open space in the middle gives them even more flexibility for the space.

    I don't care if you think it's an upgrade. It is, but it's not a unique or localized look. It's a corporate sanitized look and boring because of that.

    Dang. A little snippy.

    It is MUCH better, but their first mistake was not knocking down those cubicles in the corner and allowing for things to look less crowded.  I'm sure space might be at a premium, but those cubes don't look like they're used by a whole bunch of people.  Those high walled workstations could've been replaced with lower walled ones and incorporated into the set somehow as a working newsroom.... if that's what those cubes are used for.

    The cubicle are not the problem for me. It is all of that fake looking wood and weird duratrans. It's straight up 2000's.
