Something tells me WMAQ isn't going to get a weather center any time soon. They've finally started using this area over the past few weeks for stand ups in addition to the other side of the studio. I've notice weather has only been done by chroma key. Another thing when Leila is done with sports she joins Rob, Allison and Stefan at the desk but in the evenings the meteorologists still do not. Just found it a little odd if you have one but not the other at the end of the newscast or after their report.

Is the main anchor desk the only surviving piece from 2012 remaining in the studio? I think everything else has been replaced one or more times now, right?

 

Yup!

And the only modification on the desk is that it has wheels.

Why do they settle for such a cramped little set? They should go back to the 1989 open newsroom.

During the later years of the open newsroom set, it always looked super empty in the area behind the anchor desk; kinda sad looking for a "newsroom" set.

 

Also, I feel like in the modern news era, big video walls are the thing for everyone. I personally am not a fan of having anchors shoved right up against a big video wall with no physical set visible in their solo shots, but alas...

Tomorrow marks 2 years since the passing of Dick Johnson. I was really sad when he passed as he was underrated and one of the best journalists I've seen. NBC5  should have given him top spot as he had great chemistry with everybody.
