WBZ has finally replaced their “WBZ 4 News”-era set. Starting tonight at 5 p.m., a brand new, state-of-the-art news studio will debut.
News Director John Verilli, in an interview with the Herald, remarks “The new set is so much bigger and we have a lot more options.” The previous set was much smaller and was further divided when the Movie Loft set was constructed in the same area.
The highlights of the new set include high-efficiency LED lights, high-definition TV monitors, and a myriad of places to do stand-ups, sit-downs, and all of the hallmarks of a Channel 4 newscast.
The new set will also mark the debut of graphics and news music more in line with the other CBS owned-and-operated stations. This time, however, the WBZ brand name will continue to be used.
