SLIDESHOW: Check out the new WDRB News set!

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- On Monday evening, during our first 6 p.m. newscast, WDRB News proudly unveiled our new set.

The new set utilizes 28 LCD monitors, including two 80-inch touchscreens, five 55-inch monitors, and several that are combined to create a massive 68' x 202' digital wall. 

Over 12,500 LED lights were utilized to create the set, the centerpiece of which is a round, sleek transparent acrylic table where the anchors sit.

Construction has been taking place over a period of weeks, but the set has been a closely held secret. WDRB News has been producing several "rehearsal newscasts" -- newscasts that never saw air -- in order to prepare for the set's unveiling.

The set will be used in all of WDRB News' broadcast from this day forward. To view images of the new set, click on the slideshow above.
