The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has posted an interesting review of the local station’s news sets. The article focuses on NBC affiliate WTMJ’s new set (pictured right) and the various reactions it evoked from those on both sides of the screen.
“It’s like being on a spaceship,” said WTMJ-TV anchor-reporter Courtny Gerrish.
“Punch it, Chewie,” added meteorologist Brian Gotter, making a “Star Wars” joke.
The futuristic-looking set so offended one caller that he left a message on my voice mail: “It’s a screaming disaster. It’s as ugly as any modern designer or architect could create.”
