WBOC Newsplex

Salisbury, MD

WBOC Newsplex Weather Reporting

WBOC, Delmarva’s CBS/Fox-affiliated television station, hired Gillis Gilkerson to construct a $13-million dollar state-of-the-art “Newsplex” in Salisbury, Maryland. The +/- 11,340 square foot building now serves as a working newsroom and active television set, incorporating the latest high-definition (HD) technology.

Gillis Gilkerson partnered with local architectural firm, Becker Morgan Group (BMG), to execute the build. One of the many challenges faced encompassed the burial of +/- 10-miles of cable connected to the rotating anchor desk. Additionally, traditional lighting was reconfigured and replaced with lighting capable of moving with the rotating set.

The “Newsplex” is situated directly behind WBOC’s main studio on Route 13 in North Salisbury, Maryland. The network’s first broadcast from the new facility aired in 2008.

“Gillis Gilkerson did a wonderful job,” said Tom Draper, owner of WBOC. “They are honest, hardworking, and we had a very good experience with them. All of the challenges, including lighting and sound, were handled professionally. I would definitely recommend them as a commercial builder.”
