WTVT debuts a new set and graphics package…

Viewers tuning into WTVT this afternoon were treated to a new look at the Tampa station. On the 5 p.m. newscast, the station finally unveiled its much anticipated and slightly delayed new set.

New graphics tease at WTVT…

Tampa’s WTVT introduced a slightly tweaked graphics package today, on the 5:00 p.m. newscast. The new graphics (below #1), although similar to the previous look (below #2), have distinct differences.
