New News Set
In July, 2009 WVIT moved into a new facility adjacent to their old building on New Britain Avenue in West Hartford. On August 22, 2009, we got a chance to tour the old building and take some pictures. The old building was scheduled to be demolished in a few weeks.
We're not sure of the significance of the "WVIT Wall" but in our tour of the old building a few weeks before it was scheduled to be demolished we figured we could take a picture of it for posterity. Perhaps a current or former WVIT staffer can shed some light on what this means.

The photo below is of the old film processing area in the old building. Prior to the use of videotape TV stations use 16mm movie film which had to be processed in house.
