Ice desks help TV news programs get through the winter

Thanks to lots of stations around the country, we can watch ice desks come together. We can hear cringey raps about them. We can watch them melt.

OK, then, let’s do all those things now.

WLUK-TV in Green Bay, Wis., debuted theirs on Monday

NBC Sports Team 10 with WJAR-TV in Providence, R.I. brought one out especially for the Olympics.

In late January WVEC-TV in Hampton Roads, Va., got into the game.

On January 30 WRAL-TV in Raleigh, N.C. created a time lapse of their ice desk’s creation.

WUSA-TV in Washington D.C. made a video of their ice desk…

Then they torched it

…And tweeted the remains.

For a while, WKYC-TV in Cleveland had a live stream of its ice desk melting. You can’t see that video now, but you can still see a tweet from Vanilla Ice, who thought Robin Swoboda’s rap about the ice desk was “awesome.”

Correction: An earlier version of this story moved WLUK from Green Bay to Madison.

    Doh! Sorry about that. Thanks for pointing it out. Corrected above.

    WLUK-TV is in Green Bay, not Madison.
