I don't know, watch all the other Hi Def newscast sets and you tell me what's wrong with blue.

Looks like they got that HD lens racked all the way back until the "barrel" effect is seen. Looks like one of those funny mirrors at the circus.

Quote from a movie . . . "Very pretty, but can they report."

when I saw fox's new set, I said, "Wow" even though I haven't watched them again.

and THV's (ugly) set didn't help them gain #1 status in the ratings. They actually fell even though they were the only HD station during the last ratings period.

not crazy about KARK's new set, but I watch them.

the picture looks like they have a small studio. that's not a knock down, you work with what you have. It just looks cramped.

I've been watching KLRT for two weeks now, I'm afraid you're gonna have to tell me what's wrong with blue, it looks fine to me. If you personally don't prefer blue, then well, that's just you.

That wide shot looks like a stitched together panorama shot from a still camera, not an actual studio camera shot.

I thought KARK looked good tonight. The set looks a little dark in my opinion and poor lighting on the reporters live from the control room.

I liked KARK's new promo until I realized that "Crossed eyed pig" Maxi Brantley was in it.

When it comes to the new set Fox is at the top of my list.
But sadly just like other posters above I don't watch them.

I am an example of someone who isnt going to change my channel because someone has a better set. I think that is very obvious because I watch Channel Seven. I got to the point it doesn't bother me anymore, but it is something awful.

Looks good to me. Non HD local news on HDTV with HD Programming was hard to stay interested. Weather is awesome in HD. Amazing that KATV News is last to go HD. I actually watch more news because of the hi def. Football HD is euphoria.

i was pretty impressed by their new look. the ten last night from what i could tell looked almost flawless..the am show this morning had a few tech flubs. i loved it when the camera op wheeled his camera RIGHT IN FRONT of another camera that was up on air. Im not real sure why KARK has three newsreaders in the am though. today was the first time i had ever watched their am show and it was a guessing game on who was going to be on set reading next.

The viewers watch the news to be informed. how much does the average news watcher care if the set looks good or not? Inform me that's all that should count!

Tracy Douglas is still a babe. HD brings out the wow factor.

Seems like the KATV Koolaiders are chiming in. Sour grapes?

I am very much impressed by KARK's HD presentation. Much better than KTHV's. Actually, no comparison.

1. Set does not look cramped. Plenty of depth. However, there is too little headroom on the two-shot camera. Lose more of the desk and go in tighter on the talent.

2. No shadows on the big weather map. Looks great.

3. Every camera used was HD resolution.

Overall, I would say 8 out of 10.

Katv haters?
That's stupid if employees take it personally they're not in HD. Its not their fault and for now they're rating are better than all/most the other stations.

Nice job! I'll give it to them on this one. It uses lots of colors, looks like they have some nice areas to show, I'm not sure if it's THE BEST but I would say it stands out more than the other stations. There are some things I noticed they can work on for sure though...

I like Channel 4's commercial they aired during the broadcast. I have to say... it was kind of cool.

KARK has spent way too much time and money promoting this set. We want good news reporting. More of Jancey and less of Melissa would be a good start.

How did KARK spend money to promote their new set?

If that Scottie guy wins the show is rigged.

This will not work as a matter of fact, that's what I consider.
