WCHS News Set Receives Ohio Valley Emmy Nomination!

Wednesday June 12, 2013

WCHS in Charleston, WV launched their new HD News Set, created by Devlin Design Group, on September 29, 2012 to rave reviews and they have just received an Emmy nomination for excellence in set design!

We wanted to create a dynamic and versatile visual presentation and storytelling environment for WCHS, fusing technology and architecture in a cohesive blend.  We are thrilled about our client’s Emmy nomination, and very excited to be a part of their success.  Dan Devlin, Creative Director, Devlin Design Group.

From concept to installation the main focus of this design was to create a set that was vibrant, versatile with a sleek modern vibe to it and I think we achieved it. We’re thrilled and privileged to receive the Emmy nomination for WCHS Set Kartik Dakshinamoorthy, Scenic Design Director, Devlin Design Group.

We tasked DDG with building us a set that would be different and make an impact on the Charleston WV. market without alienating our core audience. Once again Dan and his team hit the nail on the head; the use of the look of local stone along with warm wood tones frames the modern technology perfectly. We appreciate the honor of being nominated for a local Emmy Mark Nadeau, Director of TV Production, Sinclair Broadcast Group.

Combining all of the news set components; colors, textures, modern technology and led lighting, elevated WCHS above their competition. WCHS now has a multitude of venues for their anchor and reporter placements for telling breaking news stories, weather or sports.
