Looks like they are getting the WISH treatment!

 

Certainly looks that way, although the main desk design looks to have been tweaked a little.

Some more pictures of what’s to come...looks like they’re changing the logo too if you look closely.

I believe you are right on the new logo. They are working on this new set the same time WATE in Knoxville is working on theirs. But, it will be interesting to see who will debut their new set first. All I can tell you is this: Only time will tell.

Cant wait till the guys on YT hound me to update my WTEN compilation.

 

I hope this change will be for the better. I hate their current logo, always have.

By "current" do you mean "the overglossed Young vintage 2011 logo" or "the basic logo they've had in some form since 1986"?

If you mean the former, I totally agree.

Former (from 2011).

The "ABC" part of the logo is ungainly large.

 

Pretty sure ABC put a mandate out a few years ago that the ABC be as prominent as possible or have certain dimensions relative to everything else in a logo

The ABC logo appearing in KOCO's logo is slightly smaller than this. For WATE, it would have worked better if they placed the logo on the bottom right side of the "circle 6".

WKRN would be one of those. 

 

Back to the WTEN set... is it near completion?

I read on social media a while ago and I thought they said late April.

Good for WTEN!  Remember when WKRN, WTEN had those horrible Young Broadcasting HD sets?  Even though Adam Young, bankrupt his own company.  Young wasn't a bad company.

Compared to what it replaced (the 2000-11 set which came with the VDO WJBK/WMTW opens they used to death), it was an improvement.

Did it age well versus that set? Even after Media General did some cosmetic work - replacing the Young-era projection screen with a video wall as seen in this thread - I can easily say no.

That 2000-11 set seem to look really big! It had all that space and more.  Maybe it was the camera angles, and those Young-era projection screens were crap!   Tsk, tsk, tsk! Young Broadcasting RIP :)

Any update or word on the set’s debut? I’m on vacation this week and I hope it debuts after I come back.

Update on the set: I premiered today. Haven’t checked anything yet, except the new logo is up on their site.

It looks very nice. The new logo reminds me of the old green/yellow logo.

Speaking of that, I think this is the best WTEN has ever looked since the 2000 VDO look (before they got destroyed in 2005-2007).

New studio looks nice and I'm sure it's an improvement for WTEN but I can't help but get the temporary set vibe from it, at least from the video in the previous post. I understand the corner thing but it looks like they're actually in a corner, and the fact that the anchors appear to be so close to the background doesn't help. Feels cramped to me. Those "Your Local News Leader" banners look like something you'd throw on some remote set...  They're not even backlit.

 

I do like the desk. Some stations slap a TV screen on the front of the desk and call it a day, which looks pathetic. This is not that and looks nice.

 

Perhaps I need to see more but I'm not terribly impressed with what I see on this page.
