“The Most-Watched News in Western Washington” may be able to claim the most-watched Microsoft Surface Hub in the world.

Just down the road from Redmond, Seattle’s KING 5 debuted its new television facilities today in the city’s South of Downtown neighborhood, right across from Safeco Field.

But beyond baseball and a spiffy looking studio packed with bright lights, multi-screen arrays, there is a singular screen that will stand out to techies: an 84-inch Microsoft Surface Hub. It’s the first one in use at a broadcast media outlet and will expand the storytelling capabilities of presenters during news programs. Better yet, it’s one of the first ones that Microsoft has delivered, period.

KING-TV is owned by TEGNA, Inc., a spin-off of Gannett which publishes the USA TODAY newspaper.
