Roanoke station readying new set

WDBJ-TV, the CBS affiliate in Roanoke that was thrust into the national spotlight after two of its team members were shot and killed on live TV, is getting ready to debut a new set.

The station posted a photo to its Facebook page showing the empty studio and a note saying a new set is in progress.


The station’s old set, which was seen countless times during the station’s own coverage of the shooting, was a rather simple combination of red and blue walls with some accents — including flat screen monitors mounted directly behind the anchor desk.

Oh no -- our set disappeared! Thankfully, we're getting a brand-spankin'-new one to replace it. In the meantime, we'll be rocking our orange hard hats.
