Like Shuffling the Deck Chairs on the Titanic


Struggling Tribune station WPIX in New York has gone through a number of changes over the past months.  

The station has changed news management, shuffled around the anchors, named new producers and made some reporter changes. 

Now they are going to move the chairs around in the newsroom. 

The station has hired and architect, engineer and interior designer for a full-scale renovation of WPIX’s newsroom.

“WPIX has been at this location for the past 65 years and is a quintessential New York City broadcaster; its new environment will reflect that and be unlike any other presently seen on the airwaves,” said William J. Hallisky, project manager and senior designer for the Media + Entertainment Group.

The company says that the entire facility — beyond the anchor desk — will be “camera ready” and able to be used for broadcasts as needed.

If the entire facility is camera ready...... I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the live shot from the bathroom stall.  

Stay tuned....
