  1. The new set debuted this evening (Aug. 19).
  2. The set has arrived to be installed. https://www.facebook.com/marcushunter16wapt/posts/395760512145388
  3. In Jackson, MS, looks like WAPT is #1 at 5p.
  4. Those sets are nothing more than a background on a wall and a desk with some monitors. Definitely cheap enough to do updates across the entire portfolio that Raycom had at that time. Many of these sets have been refreshed and some have not, but these particular sets may fall apart if updated anymore. It’s hard to believe that it has been ~10 years for these sets!
  5. JTV’s set seems like it sits in the middle of the studio. There’s walking space all around the exterior of the set. The two market newscast is awful and is even more disgusting during severe weather coverage.
  6. Yes as far as I’m aware of. Not sure if they rank #1 now in any time slot. WLBT has been very strategic with moving talent around and keeping good talent. Hearst and Nexstar move people around too often in that market.
  7. Hearst’s WAPT in Jackson, MS is broadcasting from the newsroom. They were slated for a new set this time last year, but better late than never, right? The main frame of the set dates back to 1999 with many updates through the years. Sounds like the new set will debut in ~2 months.
  8. Here’s a promo that includes the new set and graphics:
  9. All seems to be happening... https://www.wxxv25.com/2021/03/12/news-25-will-debut-new-set-march-22nd/
  10. Morris Multimedia is investing some time and money into WXXV. The ‘new’ WXXV debuts late March.
  11. I found this newspaper article from The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, MS that dates back to Monday, April 26, 1999 that previews the debut of WAPT's new set (that is still in use today excluding the current weather center set, news desk and duratrans). Yes, this has already been discussed , but it is pretty neat to see a true date and a story about it. Source: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/6698893/wapt-to-unveil-new-set-today/
  12. Northwest Arkansas has been using it.
  13. The new set debuts this Thursday. https://wgno.com/news/local/watch-daily-time-lapse-videos-as-wgno-counts-down-to-the-launch-of-our-new-set/?utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=facebook.com&fbclid=IwAR1NQpnM01Jhsmc1TXV49vwpTk0IXiwg6jeyz7misBflMWBXEot2KGVZ-PU
  14. WAAY 31 recently debuted their own personal radar network consisting of three radar sites within their DMA. https://www.waaytv.com/content/radar-content/Dual-Polarity-Radar-Features-Allows-for-Enhanced-Forecasting-571139471.html?fbclid=IwAR2c3_y30TcK8xzWCTJHNBZLy30usksooK5CQkwvAuGC_mFGrfXRxJaYvWo
