WCSC (Gray-TV) in Charleston, SC is undergoing a set renovation a few months after WCBD (Nexstar) launched their new set. They have moved to a temporary set in the smaller studio (with the earlier back panels seen before their most recent refresh to Monitors behind the anchors. Expected timeline is 2 months.

Debut for new set and GFX package is set for Monday, 2/13

I'm excited to see what the GFX package is, I know Gray is in the works of a completely redesigned GFX package, and as others have reported this is supposedly going to be the first station to debut them. I have confirmation from my local Gray station that the new GFX package is indeed a thing and that it's not only great for Gray standards but across the board.

They have launched at least a "preview" of the new set.  Ill grab more photos from their livestream as I can. As of now,  graphics remain the same (I'm wondering if this is a staggered launch to the 5pm show)

 

They've been tightly shot so probably not to give it away...here's 2 screenshots.

Many similarities to the WANF set, so far so good! Hopefully we do indeed get new graphics!

Agreed, I see a good deal of WANF in the set, which is good.

Good use of multiple colors at once.

I have to hand it to Gray, they did a good job and the flexibility of the set is fantastic. I'm curious to see the new GFX package next month.

Nice modern look, but I don't care for that podium style desk. I would like a stately, standard style desk with the anchors seated rather than standing. I don't like this trend with anchors constantly standing. But don't mind alternating stand ups, but still prefer the traditional desk.
