KPRC 2 launches new set for 2013

KPRC's new set looks big on air

KPRC 2 launched a brand new newscast set last night at 10pm. And it's big looking. I always liked the late channel 2 90s set in the newsroom, but this new one rivals it.

While it looks like a real set, the station noted on the newscast that a virtual one will also be used for special news coverage like elections.

And get this, chief meteorologist Frank Billingsley didn't use a green screen chroma key wall last night. He did the weather on a large screen made of smaller monitors (see below).  That monitor wall was also used by anchor Dominique Sachse during a news story.
