The idea for the Anvil shaped desk comes from the Statue of the Vulcan. The statue of the Vulcan stands right nexts to the station on Red Mtn overlooking the city. Notice the anvil and hammer on left side. (Many people joke about the seemingly exposed bum)
Birmingham is a historic steel-making city. I get the reason why they used it. But....
Overall not bad. Not sure about the 2 different "wood" flooring choices. The weather center is nice. Central Alabama gets quite severe weather and tornadoes so it think a proper weather set that would be on air for literally 4-6-7 or more at a stretch, is more than appropriate. They are a competitive tv weather market. Their CBS competitor just got a new set. Its hideous, it features a huge red brick arched window. Its super ugly. Im not a big fan of overly incorporating local elements, but WVTM did ok. The anvil is a little OTT though....
Heres the rest of the Newscastudio pics. Save you some time.
