WVEC, the ABC affiliate in Norfolk, is broadcasting newscasts this week from a brand-new set.
The station debuted the new set last week. The old set was constructed in 1990 and underwent several updates since then, most recently in 2008.
“The old set had been through so many tweaks and revisions that we knew it was time,” Chuck Spruill, WVEC’s director of creative services, said in a statement. “We ripped out everything and started from scratch, including putting down a new floor and re-hanging every light fixture. We wanted the end result to have a modern yet simplistic feel, and we are very happy with the outcome.”
The new set (pictured via the station’s Facebook page) features blue LED accents and a translucent stone desktop. WVEC contracted SCECON, a local company, for design and construction.
