BATON ROUGE - WBRZ introduced a brand new, high-tech studio on November 17, 2014 at 5 p.m. This new advanced story-telling and presentation area will enhance the way news is delivered to viewers and will allow for an interactive atmosphere.

WBRZ Production Services, Engineering Staff, News Team, and General Manager, Rocky Daboval worked tirelessly alongside the designers at Devlin Design Group to create a more scenic environment for viewers. With the limitless possibilities of this new set, WBRZ will be able to give viewers a reliable, more visual story-telling experience.

Chuck Bark, Director of News, said, "This is one of the most innovative sets for news at a local station anywhere in the country. For decades, news sets have served as mere backgrounds for anchors and others to tell stories. This set changes that. Multiple video walls will bring the latest pictures from anywhere in the world. Graphics and maps will be projected to help viewers understand important stories. The news set is dynamic and ever changing. For viewers, it means watching news will never be the same."

The versatility of this studio will allow the station to maintain the standards set as Louisiana's Association of Broadcasters, Station of the Year. WBRZ prides itself as holding the standard for quality news, investigations, weather and sports in the Baton Rouge area. Watch WBRZ, News 2 to see how local news is continuously improving.

WBRZ is locally owned by Manship Media. For more information, contact Noah Kozinko, Director of Marketing, at (225) 336-2270 or nkozinko@wbrz.com.
