A new anchorwoman , set and graphics will debut starting at noon today on WJZ-TV, according to station management.
Viewers tuning to the noon news on Channel 13 today will see the newscast staged on a much larger set with huge video screens backing and flanking the anchor desk.
Watching a rehearsal Wednesday, I was impressed with the bright, clean, open look of the set. But many newsroom sets have those characteristics — they more or less define the aesthetic of local TV news.
I will wait until I see WJZ’s set on a screen the way viewers do before judging it. What the eye sees in person can be very different from what the camera captures and transmits.
