In Sioux Falls, KELO Replaces Scripts with iPads As Part of HD Upgrade

KELO, the CBS-affiliate in Sioux Falls, is getting ready to debut a slew of upgrades to their newscasts.

As part of their conversion to high-definition — which the KELO website says is just “days away” — the station will switch from paper scripts to iPads, as well as broadcast from a new set, edit footage with new editing systems and debut a new graphics package.

The station is even changing the way anchors, who will be under the focus of the new HD cameras, apply their makeup. The station has arranged for the on-air talent to be trained using airbrushes ahead of the conversion.

“It’s a long process in changing all the different pieces of a newscast and look of the station that most viewers don’t pay too much attention to because they see it everyday,” KELO director of marketing and creative services Paul Farmer said.
