WTVT to get a new set…

Viewers of Tampa’s WTVT may have noticed something different on Tuesday’s newscasts. The station began dismantling its current set to start construction on a new one.

The anchors are working from a temporary desk, which is pushed back into the open newsroom.

Sources tell Florida News Center to expect an entirely new look for the market and that the new set should should be a mix of the new set that Orlando sister station WOFL debuted in early 2015 and the set that Atlanta sister station WAGA debuted in 2014. We should expect to see the new set on the air within the next few months. Stay tuned…
