KRCG 13 launches new high-tech studio
NEW BLOOMFIELD, Mo. —
It's been many months in the making but KRCG 13 launched a new high-tech studio at noon on Monday.
Long time anchor Dick Preston and Meteorologist Zac Evans presented the midday news and weather on the dynamic new set.
The new studio features many stand up and video presentation options including a high-tech weather center, interview area and multi-screen video wall. The set is controlled by a new, state of the art broadcast booth.
"I am so happy for our news crew. This is an exciting time at KRCG 13, coming off their recent win of the Edward R. Murrow award for Overall Excellence and now launching the newest and most state of the art set in mid-Missouri," said KRCG 13 News Director Julie Moravchik.
"They are an amazing group of people working hard for our viewers. I'm thrilled they now have even better tools to help them do their jobs," she added.
KRCG 13 and our parent company, Sinclair Broadcast Group, worked with Devlin Design Group, Inc., one of the nation's leading set design companies based in Crested Butte, Colorado.
"Our studio operation, set and cameras have all been upgraded to the latest technology," said KRCG 13 General Manager Beth Worsham. "We are so pleased to show mid-Missouri that Channel 13 is committed to providing quality news content in a format that is engaging and exciting. In addition to the set, our news is now broadcast in high definition and the station graphics have been upgraded to a modern and fresh style. The team at KRCG 13 and our loyal viewers deserve the best!"
Last week, KRCG 13 held a ribbon cutting with the Callaway County Chamber of Commerce on the new set.
