Couple of screenshots from my tv (excuse the quality) showing some different angles of the set. Seems that Sports Final has a different background graphic on the monitors.\\

This set is recycling elements from NewsNation. So I think Clickspring designed this.

I don’t think it’s anything groundbreaking, but it looks nice, especially on wide shots. It’s an improvement over the last set. The 2-shot at the anchor desk is the only obvious weakness. There’s absolutely no depth-of-field with just the logo and a sea of blue (with some sort of topography pattern?) They should swap out that graphic with something different.

Yeah I’m not liking the 2 shot for the exact reasons you mentioned, it’s the one letdown of an otherwise amazing set.

Nice setup for sports final - the set has that distinctive Socal feel of the ‘85 KNBC set that lasted so long 

 

Also says something someone as skeptical as David Lazarus is excited about a set 

 

Agree with C the 2 shot could use editing. The depth and framing that shines in the rest of the set is missing

Rich DeMuro’s report from this morning is below. The set was built by JHD Group in Los Angeles. Nexstar gave the station the autonomy to pick whatever set designer they wanted.

I'm sure down the line they might make some tweaks to it to improve that shot. 

I was just going to say the same thing, just based on the fact that none of the stand-ups, right now, are showing any graphic about the story being presented, just the 5 logo. I'm sure once they've gotten more settled in, the screen will be utilized with other graphics as well as the monitors at the other stand-up locations in the studio.

I remember reading this on the Discord, but I wouldn’t be surprised if every Nexstar station technically has the autonomy to pick any designer; it’s just that they don’t have the budget to go with a designer like JHD. As much as I’d love for every Nexstar station to have a set that looks as good as KTLA’s, stations that are below market #10 aren’t getting anything too elaborate. We shouldn’t expect them to, either; the money is better spent elsewhere.

Actually I take back what I said earlier. This set looks fantastic. The more I look at it (particularly the secondary presentation areas), the more I notice how much detail went into it without going overboard. Take a look at it, and then take a look at the set it replaced, and you'll realize how it blows the old one out of the water. It probably cost a fortune, but it's a much more refined and better use of the space. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that monitor graphic on the 2-shot, but that's an easy fix.

 

Some more pictures on the designer website too:

Really loving the high celing penthouse window grid look of the monitors behind the main anchor desk. The set is nice and spacious.

 

SB: even though we're in the video wall era, I do like when stations incorporate layered physical set details, and blend themwith the video walls to add the flexibility.
