InfoMás gets a new set…

Last week brought a new set for Tampa market 24-hr news channel, Bay News 9. However, right across the hall, Spanish language sister station, InfoMás also received a new set as well.

The new casa for InfoMás is smaller than it’s big sister, BN9 but contains the same technology and dynamic background. The new set, built by Park Place Studios, in “Studio B” was built especially for InfoMás but will also serve as a back-up studio for BN9 and Orlando sister stations News 13 and BHSN if needed. InfoMás serves the Tampa and Orlando media markets, with one combined news, weather and sportscast.

Graphics, logo, music and branding stays the same.

A rare sight in TV news…

Check out this picture below that I took at the Tampa Museum of Science and Industry’s Hurricane Expo this weekend.

Yours truly wrangled these guys all together for a rare photo opportunity after the Q&A. Thanks to all five for chatting and for humoring me.
