WJAC-TV in Johnstown sporting new look

New site TVNewsInsider tipped us off that WJAC-TV, the NBC affiliate in Johnstown, Pa., has a new set.

The new set was designed by FX Group, and is similar to ones already installed at WFTV-TV in Orlando, Fla., KIRO-TV in Seattle and WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh, Pa.

Using a combination of wood and silver and blue highlights, the new set is full of clean lines and reflects the simplified look Cox stations tend to favor in both their sets and graphics.

Some new additions, however, include a new take on the weather presentation desk (WFTV-TV and WPXI-TV both elected to keep their existing weather centers designed by BDI) and a curved standup area with plasma screen. Another new touch is the station’s logo emblazoned on plexiglass panels that are mounted to the wall.
