  1. I've given up on any large companies going with a local feel...which is a shame cause some stations really did breathe that local feel until the big corps took over.
  2. I'm actually surprised at Sinclair, this set looks really good! It's a nice change compared to the previous versions of "Sinclair in a box". Now...if WCIV would get a refresh....but thats another topic
  3. WLOS in Asheville, NC (Sinclair) has been in temporary digs for the past few months. Expecting a new set debut sometime this month or next.
  4. I'm betting money it's a carbon of WCBD's set. Faux Shiplap and all. (Here's WCBD's new set as of Tuesday)
  5. I agree it's an upgrade over their previous set, not a fan of the dividers either..but overall it's cleaner than their previous look. I'm a bit more disappointed that it's generic...it doesn't have a Charleston flair (the shiplap is just no)...Charleston is absolute beautiful city but these generic sets are ruining the feel of the heart of the lowcountry. Not to shift away from this topic..but I want to point out that the "WORST" Set in that market is by far WCIV (Which has been using the same set for nearly 20 years) - Sinclair Also, I have to wonder if WCSC will get a new set in the near future after this, Gray did a refresh to the set about a year ago to change out the dura-trans to monitors and since they are #1 in the market..it makes sense for a new look for them at some point. I wouldn't be surprised if this happens in 2023.
  6. WCBD debuted it's new set at 4pm yesterday. A nice upgrade for them, but the wood reminds me of shiplap..not sure how I feel about that part.
  7. WKOW (Madison) : George Smith (Evening Anchor) is out at WKOW. WISC (Madison) : Dana Fulton ( Meteorologist) is leaving the station on Friday. WCSC (Charleston) : Lisa Weismann (Evening Anchor) last day is Friday.
  8. Well I'm pretty sure (unless Nexstar does something shocking) will get the set WMBB just launched. https://www.mypanhandle.com/news/local-news/news-13-reveals-new-studio/
  9. I highly suspect WCBD (Which is Nexstar) and getting a new studio will have this exact same look.
  10. The one thing that seems to get lost in these sets is there is no local flare to them as they were taken over by larger companies. Charleston is a beautiful area and all 3 stations seem to have gone more generic over the years. WCIV being the worst looking ( their set is nearing 20 yrs old by now and looks terribly dated) . I'm curious to see what Nexstar has to offer, but I'm betting money WCSC is watching closely as they are nearing the end cycle of their current set.
  11. WCBD (News 2) in Charleston, SC has moved to a temporary set as a new set is installed. The last set to be installed was by Media General several years ago. Curious to see what Nexstar's vision is https://www.counton2.com/news/local-news/what-happened-to-news-2s-studio/?utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_source=facebook.com&fbclid=IwAR3XR5_Vxq0O9ciHYQPEOVKJCFSpcMF7R-2Z7u7wjF5EoTN6MQv5ImB0IWM Existing set which debuted in 2014: https://www.newscaststudio.com/setstudio/wcbd/
  12. WMTV hasn't had new graphics since the move to their new studios...not sure what version they are on, but its nothing recent.
  13. Yeah that logo was from the Raycom years...questionable graphics at times for sure..but a flat version of the 80's logo would really be a nice touch for 70 yrs. Great station, got a ton of experience as an intern there
  14. With WAVE going back to an older logo, I wish Gray-TV would consider sending WCSC-TV back to its former logo..it was more original than the current version.
  15. I'm curious to know as well. WCBD and WCSC have all had a few refreshes but WCIV's set looks very dated. I know that a good chunk of the studio is used for Lowcountry Live (another set that is in need of a refresh)..but I'd be curious to see if/when Sinclair will update them. The studio itself is a good size since they moved there in the 90's.
