WOFL gets a new set…

Orlando’s WOFL unveiled their new set this afternoon. The new set (in “Studio A”) features a curved video wall that frames the main news desk and serves as a visual and story background for the anchors. The new also features a new weather set, morning show/interview set, and an on set video/story production area that mimics those used on the mother ship at the Fox News Channel.

The new set was designed and built by Central Florida based Fx Design Group. Insiders tell Florida News Center to expect a similar new set coming to Tampa’s WTVT, just in time for fall sweeps – Stay tuned!

While the previous WOFL set is now history, the station retains its FOX O&O corporate graphics and music package.
