As Part Of WBZ Makeover, A Shift To Hard News

Earlier this month, WBZ debuted a sleek new set design and graphics. The Boston Globe has more details about other changes coming to the CBS O&O, both on and off camera:

The new set – the first overhaul in a decade – pops with its mix of soft blues and steel colors. It is almost double the size of the former set and has 18 high-definition monitors, including two 103-inch monitors that weigh 500 pounds each, which help create a more dynamic broadcast.

“Our look and our feel was getting a little long in the tooth,’’ said [general manager] Ed Piette.

Change is also happening off camera. The station has downplayed its light-hearted social media franchises such as “Conversation Nation’’ and “Declare Your Curiosity’’ – which asked viewers for story tips – in favor of more hard news and investigative reports that its parent CBS news division is known for.
