WBOC Digital Newsplex Addition

Salisbury, MD

WBOC DIGITAL NEWSPLEX ADDITION

WBOC hired Gillis Gilkerson to build a $13 million state-of-the art “Newsplex” that incorporated the latest high definition (HD) technology, a working newsroom and an active television set. The 11,340 square-foot building was constructed directly behind the WBOC main studio on Route 13 in Salisbury. The first broadcast from the new studios was in 2008.

Working with the architectural firm The Becker Morgan Group, one of the many challenges on this project was burying 10 miles of cable for the rotating anchor desk underneath removable flooring tiles. Traditional lighting also had to be reconfigured and was replaced with lighting that moved with the rotating set.

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

“I was able to get a hold of my friend, who works for Gillis Gilkerson while I was in Africa when I found out my house flooded. When I got home in June, Gillis Gilkerson told me what went wrong and what needed to be fixed. They did a complete interior remodel by November so I was back in my home for the holidays. I never had to worry. I knew they would do a quality job and they did.”
