WILX Set

Post by gotigers » Sat Mar 11, 2017 11:49 am

WILX has been broadcasting from a temporary set. They just got their current set a couple years ago. Time for a redo already?

That set was awful anyway, honestly.

I agree - it looked horrible. Hopefully a new one is imminent.


The hideous electronic billboards in each end zone make Spartan Stadium look like a corny Arena Football League venue!

Their brick wall set looked really bad, like a public access TV set.

The old set was the same one other Gray TV Stations in similar sized markets had, and they were not happy with as well. If you want to see the future set of WILX I would suggest looking at other Gray TV Stations.

WJRT in Flint has a nice set and they are a Gray station.

WNDU South Bend had a similar set to WILX that debuted around the same time. They recently redid theirs and now resembles WJRT's current one. So that's obviously what's coming to WILX (and by proxy, WSYM) as well.

New set goes live beginning 4pm on Monday. Having visited the old set, my impression was it wasn't well designed. It was an obstacle course to move from the green screen or weather set to the main anchor desk.
