Looks they also changed from WSI/IBM to Baron. 

Definitely Baron, I can tell by the gray remote.

Beat me to it lol. But it does look like a really nice set, especially compared to the virtual set they had before...

 

I didn't mind their virtual set. It could have been slightly better, but I liked several of the elements like the virtual mapping on the anchor desk.

 

Also, I am not pleased that they are dropping Impact V.6 for CBS Local and the CBS graphics pack. This is just so meh.

Is that confirmed? Or is that just what Nexstar does with this graphics package?

 

If so, I'm actually glad they're dropping Impact. They use it entirely too much. They used it for 15 years prior to getting the jcbD graphics, and it got annoying and I was finally glad to see it go. Then they brought it back with the virtual set, and I didn't mind it at first, but now its getting annoying again. I have no idea why they love Impact so much. This is all just my opinion. I really like Impact, don't get me wrong. Its just over used on WKBN. 

 

Although the package they're replacing it with isn't all that good. I do like hearing it on WOIO, however.

How do we know it's going to be CBS Local? Not all Nexstar CBS stations using the CBS package use CBS Local. For all we know, WKBN could use Guardian, Inergy, or hell, even Extreme (like WOWK).

No. Just my suspicions with Nexstar's contract with SAM and the emphasis of CBS.

Remember KRQE? CBS has "an Eye on them" and they're using Locals Only.

I'm a little bummed they kept Impact, but the set looks amazing! 

 

They do the same "window" look with the desk like they did with WJHL.

 

Light years better than WFMJ and their fake monitor array,..

Wkbn has the standard Nexstar set without the delka desk.  For the first ever the weather center is in the studio.  WKBN has commissioned version7 of Impact.

https://www.wkbn.com/news/local-news/wkbn-debuting-new-studio-during-5-p-m-news/

 

Could that have been ANY more dramatic? It's so silly when stations go into the big long historical spiel about being part of the community, serving the viewers, and whatever else cliches when they get some new walls.

 

Rant aside, it's a fresh look and pleasantly bright. A lot of studios seem dark nowadays.

I was gonna do something big for my 1K post, but I'll post this instead.

6pm Open: (I don't like how they cut off the theme.)

I'll have to hear more-but so far, I'm liking Impact v7. It has a nice sound to it. Reminds me a lot of v4.

Did anyone notice their new handheld teleprompter operator? IT'S MASSIVE!! It looks like those TV remotes they make with giant buttons for old people who can't see. Is that really necessary?

Other than that-it's a nice upgrade.

Yes it does. I was stunned when I was reading about it this afternoon on wkbn.com about they commished updated music. This is a major upgrade to Newswatch27.

Are those vertical towers to the side of the desks LEDs?

And here we thought that WKBN would get an Arnold theme like CBS Local or Guardian. Impact V7 sounds great, maybe not legendary but great nonetheless.
