WTKR's "Triple Doppler Forecast Center." They've had this since 2004.

A better view from a promo:

WAVY's "Super Doppler 10 Weather Center." They've had this since they got their new set in 2004. When it debuted, there was a "10" with a wave thing on the front of the desk, but it was changed not long after.

WVEC's "13 News Weather Lab." My least favorite of all the weather centers here, there's something that's so... "officey" about it. They've had this since Super Bowl Sunday 2003, a few months ago they replaced their big silver tube TV with the plasma pictured below.

Is that Doug Higgins? I remember when he was on WHOI19 Peoria, back in the 90s when I got both Quad Cities and Peoria.

Im not really a big fan od these kind of weather centers. I think there still a little too much advanced, I like just a normal weather center, where the meteorologists actually forecast and all of that. Do like the FOX stations still do that, or is there a weather office?

Our FOX affilliate, KLJB has a weather office... it's pretty big too (considering KLJB is produced by Independent News Network, which does 14 other areas as well.)

Here is a better one of WLS (I took that from inside) and a pic of WMAQ's. Thought i had one of WGN. WFLD had one but I don't know if they got an updated one yet or just got rid of it all together.
