Are they abandoning the green screen already?  

Yep. Morning anchor Chelsea Spears confirmed that the current set will be completely torn down.

Now they'll probably go all-in with the CBS package.  It's already halfway there.

The hybrid virtual/hard set they had was an interesting but weird concept to begin with.

 

 

This won't be missed at all.

It's probably suffered since it was concieved in the LIN era, constructed and launched in the Media General era, and Nexstar has probably plotted long and hard to get rid of it....

That would be my guess. It'd be ridiculous to actually keep the current package they have when they have half of the other one. 

 

BTW, the set will debut sometime in October.

Absolutely agree. I never liked this set, and I'm so glad to see it go!

Here is a screenshot from the Facebook live from the other day.  Well someone left a handout in the weather center.

Ugh. Also, goodbye Impact V.6, sadly.

 

Yeah.

 

Also, I'm genuinely curious: why does it seem like there's been a huge surge in the use of Stephen Arnold packages lately, particularly at Nexstar?

Nexstar has had a very good relationship with SAM for years. That and most of the new stuff Warner Chappell has been churning out lately sound rather similar to each other outside of the signature notes.

Given WKBN is a CBS Affiliate most likely CBS Local or another package from SAM followed by the Nexstar-CBS graphics (I could be wrong about this). now for the set it will probably be proper like most Nexstar stations out there, the chroma set was a good experiment tbh.

That would be my guess. I like CBS Local, so I wouldn't mind hearing it on WKBN. 

 

Now one has to wonder if WYTV will get the Nexstar ABC package.

WCPM hasn't been putting out much and the stuff that they sell is all composed by Tom Snider. No one else is really working on new music.

Also, this is what WKBN is currently using. I can't think of a good reason to use this junk.

 

 

That open is beyond disgusting. I don't even know where to begin. Who tf would think this is good quality and put it on the air? And how does anyone on WKBN's creative services team have a job if THAT is what they churn out?? Rant over lol.

Might as well add WYTV to the mix as well. They are on a temporary set.

They did say a few weeks, so unlike WKBN, they're getting a simple set refresh.

Hate to go a little off topic ...

 

But the guy on the left … looks like a mixture of George Stephanopoulos and Sam Donaldson.  Corporate should grab him quick for GMA.  LOL. jk

That's Len Rome. He's been at WYTV for decades.

Well, we now know how much WKBN's news director wants the virtual set killed to death...

Story from FTVLIVE

 

As for his prior remarks about how great it was, I'm sure his Lin/MG bosses were breathing down his neck......now that Nexstar runs the show, that's ancient history.. 

 

And apparently, WYTV is just getting a robotic camera upgrade...

He may as well be WYTV.   The same could be said about Stan Boney until WKBN "poached" him a few years back... Very easy to do since both stations are under one roof!

I really wished Stan would've stayed at WYTV and they would have actually got two anchors to do the news so Stan could have just done the weather.

It appears that as of Friday (8/23), WKBN has switched to the Nexstar CBS Weather GFX...
