HD Conversion Update 9/22/11

We have an empty shell now! In order for the new set to be built, we had to completely demolish, empty, and clean the old studio. In the above picture, you are looking at the future East Side Studio. This will house the set for interviews, reporter stand-ups, and is also the door that leads to the Weather Deck. As you can see, it is empty and the floors have been redone with a HIGHLY industrial paint. It's shiny too! Now to more pictures!
The above picture is still in the East Studio, looking the other direction. You can still see one walls of the old storm center. As soon as the new set is installed, those computers will move and that will just be a wall. If you look through the opening, that is the main studio that will house the future news desk and the awesome storm center! The floors were still a little sticky, so I could not go in there. Believe me, it's just an empty shell.
One downfall has been the smell! The paint needed for a studio floor has to be TOUGH. This means that we had to use some STRONG paint. When I say STRONG... everything about it is STRONG. The smell on Tuesday night was horrible.

We know there will be some uncomfortable moments, some challenges, and some smells that we will have to deal with over the next few weeks. With that said, the final product is going to be awesome and worth it!

More updates coming soon. In case you don't know, we are also getting a BRAND NEW control room. I'll blog about that next!
