News 13 unveils a new set…

Orlando market 24hr cable channel, News 13 unveiled a new set today. The new set, built by Park Place, completely replaces the previous main anchor set. The old weather set, replaced just two years ago, remains unchanged for now. The graphics, news music, slogans and logo’s also remain unchanged.

News 13’s set is not as large as the one unveiled a few weeks ago by Tampa market sister channel, Bay News 9, but it shares the same look, dynamic backgrounds and technology. The News 13 set/studios will serve as a back-up for BN9 and InfoMas in the event of a hurricane or other event.

Check out screen caps of the set and old weather set below.

Other stations pointed to other victories: WESH said it was first with the 18-to-49 age group at 6 a.m., and WKMG said it was first with 18-to-49 viewers at 6 and 11 p.m….Cont….
