WAGA on temporary set?


Recommended Posts

WAGA (FOX 5 Atlanta) appeared to be on a temporary set for todays 10 and 11pm newscast, I say appeared as this "temporary" set is very similar to a small set the station used during the early months of the Coronavirus pandemic but hasn't used since. The one thing that caught my eye to think even more this is a temporary set is an extra video screen was added for weather reports. We will have to see over the coming days if this in fact is a temporary set and if a new set is on the way soon.image.thumb.png.8b0eb342540d1eba327decdf6af27cbb.pngimage.thumb.png.6e9113ac362b097117d3bd83270c08f9.png

It's not a "temporary" set, it's a permanent secondary set. "The Georgia Gang" uses it weekly. 

 

And since the secondary set is designed to look like the main set, and is practically brand new, I doubt there's a lot of desire to replace the main set. Maybe a refresh in progress at most.

UPDATE: The same "permanent secondary" set was used all day yesterday and, in the hours, so far of Good Day Atlanta, I will keep posted on any potential updates, on a side note in the weeks leading up to this the panel (example below) overhead the weather center was not on and a smaller desk was used for weather reports See the source image

This smells a new set they’ve had it since 2014 it’s now 2022, so 2024 will be ten years that they’ve had and it’s 2022 two years before that year which will be 10 years having it and we’re 2 years before 10 years so whatever 10-2 is which is 8. So it’s pretty damn old ole how it’s gone by fast.

UPDATE: I have done some investigating and it is indeed intended as a temporary set, "renovations" are underway on the old set, we will have to wait and see how this will turn out. STAY TUNED!

It's been a bit so time for an update. The "updated" set debuted around two weeks ago. The updates are nothing at all, the floor decors have been removed and replaced with an extreme glossy floor while the main screen on the left-hand part of the set has been replaced with a seamless LED one with an ugly overhead wooden border
