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.”

“If it wasn’t for the help from Gillis Gilkerson, I wouldn’t be able to get out of my house. From the wheelchair ramp to the handrail, the company made it possible for me to walk outside my home. I can’t thank them enough for their time, effort and patience.”

~ Elizabeth Anderson,
Salisbury Resident

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church

“Only in knowing of the years of frustration and disappointment in our futile attempts at relocation, expansion and renovation can one understand my elation in seeing a long sought out dream brought to fruition by the professional and caring team at Gillis Gilkerson.”

“Gillis Gilkerson not only wanted our project but also performed it to our exact specifications within our extremely tight time frame – 20 working days!  If asked again, I would build with Gillis Gilkerson – in a heartbeat!”

~ Robert F. Morris,
President,
Delmarva Gymnastics Academy Inc.,
