Would the dead space behind the anchor desk be for the same reason that CNN did it with their CNN International studio revamp in 2009,, so that they could use some of that for stand up positions?

Likely but Im talk about the plain dead looking un-designed, unlit, dead zone, part of wall above and below the LCD array. Not the floor distance from the desk to the wall. Nice try.

It wouldnt look half as bad if they added some texture lighting or maybe some back lighting around the perimeter of the LCD array. It currently looks like some badly light curved drywall. And blue-tinged fluorescent cadaver lighting doesnt help.

WFLD FOX 32 Chicago - Could the O&O station finally be ditching the hideaous mandated set? Well its about time. Hopefully WNYW 5 New York is gonna get one as well. It actually looks embarassing on air.

WFLD is on a temp set in their newsroom.

Just love the set from WFTV - Orlando. So amazing for an affiliate in a medium sized market. I love the 2 story video wall. Particularly how they use it. They did a special for the Pulse Nightclub massacre and they used it display one large image and then paid tribute to those murdered on the smaller screens. Then how they used the set for their Orlando City coverage. Transforming the entire backwall into a stadium view and swapping out the colours. Just a great look. Really love the entire creative direction from WFTV. The set, the music, the lovely flat graphics. It all goes together without being too over the top. And it fits with Florida. Not too nutty and OTT like Miami but just bit of razzle dazzle that goes with a FL tv market.

I love the WFTV set but I'd remove the hard branding such as the etched glass in the "balcony" and on the weather center. I'd ditch the glass completely in favor of a two story great room look (which is what I think they were going for) and leave the monitors for the weather center which could be used for geeky segments. I'm thinking the pod would look great on election night as a command center showing results on the different screens.

It is a shame that their primary backdrop is recorded it probably would look great live.
