This week, KMGH (Denver) said goodbye to the traditional anchor desk and unveiled what they are calling the new television news set of the future.
The dynamic new set provides a platform in which 7NEWS can present the news in a more immediate and efficient way. It offers a spontaneous environment and state-of-the-art equipment that will provide Colorado with a more interactive and information-driven newscast. With the anchors surrounded by technology, viewers can expect a more seamless newscast as anchors are able to easily provide active updates with multiple touch screens, video walls and ready access to the internet.
“This set was built for our viewers – a groundbreaking, video-driven, working set that will allow our anchors and reporters to provide viewers and the community a clearer, bolder and more compelling newscast. It’s fantastic,” said 7NEWS news director, Jeff Harris.
"The debut of this groundbreaking set is consistent with the proven track record of innovation and forward thinking of 7NEWS in the Denver market. Several video presentation areas are integrated into this dazzling set that allows reporters and anchors unique ways to present their stories. The varied presentation opportunities help energize the talent and challenge the producers to tell more in-depth stories,” said Dan Devlin, owner and chief creative strategist at Devlin Design Group.
This is the first time KMGH has done a complete overhaul of the set in 15 years.
