WTVW/WEHT new set?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In a comment on their Facebook page, WEHT/WTVW has “some exciting changes” coming soon. Not sure if it’s a new set or a refresh, but they’re on a temporary set in the newsroom.

Their current set is a refreshed version of the standard Nexstar set that was built in 2011 when WEHT and WTVW combined their newsrooms.  They redid the stand-up area and added the red window thing with the a new duratran behind Brad when they went HD in 2012.

It’s a completely new set.  I have a buddy who works there. They’re getting new graphics too— I haven’t been told which package though.

I wonder if they will get the Dalek set, or WISH'D. Any guesses?

I like WISH style set better than the dalek set.  Hopefully Nexstar goes with the WISH look at WTVW/WEHT, and has plans for set makeovers at additional stations.

Maybe it'll look like the WIAT set. I have no idea, I haven't been told, but that is one of my favorite sets of the year (so far).

Hmm well that’s unique to see WEHT Local/Local 7 WTVW in the newsroom, hope to get a duplicate of that semi-circle news desk like other Nexstar stations.

Agree. WIAT’s new set is a great look that can probably stand the test of time.

WIAT look would be good too, if WTVW/WEHT pass on WISH look.

Anyone heard any updates? Kind of wondering if they are holding off on debuting the new set due to the fact they are in the retrans. dispute with DirecTV/ATT...

They are likely to get all original graphics along with that new set, we'll see what happens.

They’re not getting original graphics. They’re using the ABC graphics (at least on WEHT). Found a rehearsal video. New eyewitness news logo, WEHT local is now ABC25. Here’s the video. Haven’t found anything on Local 7.

The set is alright. Kind of a little bland. The weather center is bare and the anchor set just seems off center. 

 

The eyewitness news news logo is okay but the 25 logo seen here and the 7 logo on the desk is horrible. I could’ve done better. 

 

Peronsally, I think this is a downgrade from their old look.

That "7" is the same font as the "25" logo. They could've either kept the old "7" logo or use a fatter 7 to fit that box.

 

Wonder what the branding is going to be vocally on WTVW. "Local 7", "CW 7"?

This was only a rehearsal, remember. The desk has TV monitors so it's likely they just didn't switch the logo out for the proper one. I agree that the weather center is barren. That step off to the right, is that the working area off screen? Regardless, there is more than enough room there to have added another TV or two. The wall with the Eyewitness News logo...man...there was so much potential there. It just doesn't work.

 

Honestly, my biggest gripe is the echo. Is this because it's a rehearsal, or is the studio not sound proof? If it's the latter it needs fixed asap.

It's basically the same version WTEN received recently.

at first i thought they would because of their affiliations (because CW doesnt have its own dedicated graphics like the Big 4.) but then i realized ABC so Nexstar's ABC graphics. and they don't look bad either and i can agree with the logos they are ok.

I'm so glad "WEHT Local" is no longer going to be a thing. Saying ABC25 and CW7 makes so much more sense. Lots of rehearsal videos on their official YouTube channel.
