Orlando Station Unveils Big New Set

By Kevin Eck 

Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV debuted its new set this morning.

According to Newscast Studio, the set uses more of the main studio than the previous one and features an internally lit light ring suspended over the main news set.

“We wanted to create a set that is distinctive, and blends the feeling of a contemporary interior space, with that of a modern television studio,” said Anthony Ferguson of set designers Z Space Creative.
