One birdy showed me a rendering of the set, they aren’t going with a big name designer.

is it going to look nice or cheaply done? you think based on the render? 
and it could custom design for new york? maybe?

I shouldn’t say render. Only a decent portion of the floor plan but it changed a bit with a last minute odd request.

 

And the desk is very unique. 

 

Edit: I should say that they didn’t specifically say that it was for WNYW but it was for a “larger market” that we have long trashed on here and is in desperate need.  So by deduction all the top four markets main stations have gotten new sets in the last five years, I assumed WNYW. It was supposed to launch last sweeps period but a lot of changes were demanded.

Clarification.

Looks like a new set coming... Audrey Puente alluded to the fact that they would be relocating the weather center temporarily.

The birdie said: it won’t be until May. They are “literally” loading set pieces one by one over three months.

Was just informed home base is currently being moved to the other side of the studio,  described as and I quote “a crazy piecemeal clusterfuck.”

By that I should clarify, they aren’t receiving the set pieces all at once.  They wanted it piece by piece.

Too bad they can't seem to show any new-set love for KDFW.  They've had that same band-aids-and-lipstick-on-a-pig now for yeeeears.  And when Santa does bring them one, a vastly remodeled newsroom needs to be done as well.  Surely the ad revenue and ratings are there for it, plus however much $$$!!! that Fox will get from Disney also.

KDFW needs a whole new building as well. Everything about their location screams dump.

Could mean KDFW too. They’ve been using the same type of set that WYNW has 15 years now, like WNYW. They’re market 5. And we’ve trashed them on here too. Either way, both stations need new sets STAT.

No, right after I posted it the little birdie all but confirmed it.

Hopefully they'll update their cameras / control room, I swear to god the studio shots look like upscaled/oversharpened 480p.

It seems as if construction may have started. The main anchor desk and the couch set are still being used but many of the demonstration segements on GDNY are being directly in front of the news desk instead of off to the side like normal. They are also using the small area right across from the desk with the white backdrop and TV screen.

This will tell the story what desk ie Ernie sitting at for the 6.....

I wouldn’t know about the morning show but at 10 they sit at the desk the whole time there is 4 an a half minutes total there not at the desk (unless there’s a live shot which is rare) and that is for the political breaking news story of the night which is the weather center and when they do weather that’s it and that last one kinda goes w/o saying.

My birdie is reporting they are moving to a real temp set this weekend, which is a scaled down version of their current one.  It’s in an other studio.  However parts of the new set are in place and may debut before its finished.

Here it is, the 2006-19 set in 360 degree view.

I mean if it weren't for all the chrome and wood it might actually be a decent set. Also, dial it back on the orange lights.
