Pray Construction Builds The New WOWK-TV-13 Studio Complex

13 News Will Broadcast In HD Starting April 13th


WOWK-TV-13 has picked an appropriate day to start broadcasing, in High Definition, from its new Charleston studio-Friday, April 13th, 2012.

When it turns on the HD cameras, it will do so in a studio built by Pray Construction, of Scott Depot.

13 News is moving from its longtime Huntington home into new digs next to Brickstreet Insurance at the Charleston Town Center. With the state government headquartered in Charleston, the owner of West Virginia Media Holdings, Bray Cary, says it makes sense to move his flagship station to the capital city.


"It's a beautiful new facility," says Pray Construction President Mark Grigsby. "We've worked hard Mark Grigsbyputting it all together."

It's a unique building. Broadcast stations are different than most construction projects because of the specialized equipment that is used every day to bring entertainment and news to the audiences.

Pray's enginners and crews had to install a custom, heavy-duty electrical system to handle all of the electronics required to support a High Definition Television Station.


Once Pray handed over the keys to the new building, the TV techs took over. They've been busy wiring all of the gadgets, from cameras to editors, to switchers, that today's TV stations use to bring audiences news and entertainment.

Along with weather guru Spencer Atkins, news anchor April Kaull has been testing those new HD cameras and other equipment.

The new sign-on date is less than two weeks away. But from now on, 13 News will be broadcasting from Charleston-with a major assist from its friends in Putnam County.
