I have no idea why but people at TVNT called these news desks in the corner Daleks...
For a while that’s the design stations got and the network logo goes in the giant white spot - perfect for ABC and CBS but awkward for NBC’s peacock and the Fox logotype.
That is a good set. Surprised Nexstar had the budget for a third camera and robotics. A lot of there studios (particularly the Daleks which is what they’re called over at TVNewsTalk) just have two studios and a cheap pedestal.
Kinda interesting that that term has made it over the pond. In 1993, when BBC News went virtual and used automated cameras on pedestals, if my memory serves, the cameras were also referred to as Daleks.
Well Dr. Who is a big show for years it was in reruns on PBS and new episodes on BBC America - oftentimes premiering the same time they air on BBC One.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
