WGNO is undergoing some big changes, including the creation of a brand a new set, and we want our viewers to be with us every step of the way.
From tearing out the old news desk and ripping out the old floor, to installing a brand new, beautiful set, with a state-of-the-art weather center, and wall to wall video screens.
Check back every day this week to see what stage of construction we are on. And stay tuned for Thursday’s newscast to see the WGNO News Team in action on our new set!

WOW! What a difference one week can make! WGNO is on to bigger and better things, and we are starting with this incredible set.
A new set, new logo, new slogan, new graphics, and a new attitude! WGNO is back and better than ever!

Look at them go! This set is going to be beautiful once it’s complete, and we are just one day from that!
All the lights have been installed, the TV’s are plugged in, the floor is complete, and the desks are in place… all we are missing now is a rockin’ news crew to step up and take control of this masterpiece!

It’s too late to turn back now. Day three of construction is upon us, and things are really starting to come together. Everything to build the new set was brought in piece by piece, board by board. Assembly began, as well as the installation of lights, desks, and an absurd number of TV’s.

Day two is underway. Out with the old and in with the new, floor that is. All of the old flooring was ripped out in a matter of hours. The cement was prepped and the new tiles were placed. What could be next? Check back on Tuesday for a new video!

Getting a new set is both exciting and terrifying! So many memories were made on this set, the original set. But times are changing, and WGNO is working hard to keep up with the Joneses.
Watch below the last day on the old news set. The final shows before the desk is ripped out torn apart. It’s all so bittersweet.
