Watching their 10pm show, and the anchor is clearly on a different set, with a duratrans featuring their current look, and a stone column on the right. It looks like they've re-tooled their interview set they use for sponsored segments. Their last upgrade was a little over 4 years ago, under prior ownership and news management. Given the market, it's a short lifespan for that set....WPMI and WALA's sets are over 6 years old and WEAR's set is almost a decade old (when they went HD in 2008 with their standard-issue Devlin set) The set was a little jarring at first, but it's grown on me over the years, since it was very out of left field given how Media General was upgrading their sets at the time. Here's hoping Nexstar doesn't cheap out, but some of their recent efforts are not bad....
I don't know how any of us missed this, but WDSU in New Orleans debuted a brand new news set yesterday. http://www.wdsu.com/article/it-s-finally-here-wdsu-debuts-new-set/9907277 Devlin built this one, and has that whole diagrid thing going on (including the main anchor desk), but I feel like it's missing some flair to it, and could've used more Nawlins-style elements (maybe that's just me). EDIT 1: Nevermind. I can see elements of the city in that set. EDIT 2: The new set was built in a separate studio from where their now previous set was located. Per Scott Walker, this was their old space (in Studio A): [MEDIA=twitter]866759211128152068[/MEDIA] And this is their new space (in Studio B): [MEDIA=twitter]866761974050377728[/MEDIA]
WKRN in Nashville will be getting a brand new set in the coming weeks. It was announced today during all of their newscasts, which are currently being done in the newsroom. Knowing how Nexstar works, the new set will probably be an in-house job done by local contractors (though I'll be surprised if they use an actual set builder like was the case with KLAS).
