CBS Philly debuts new set

KYW-TV, the CBS O&O in Philadelphia, has debuted a new set.

The set is very similar to the one found at fellow O&Os WCBS-TV in New York City and WBZ-TV in Boston.

KYW’s version, however, uses a large, single rectangular rear projection screen camera center rather than the three part screen found at WCBS or the flat panel array at WBZ (WBZ’s set originally sported a dura with floating plexi panels but was upgraded less than a year after debut).

Another key difference is the structure and surface of the anchor desk. KYW’s anchor desk has a bit more detail to it, including more metallic accents and inset backlit segments. It also lacks the all glass surface found at the other two CBS O&Os.
