Bravo to Bob. That's all I can say. I really enjoyed him on NBC because its the only thing I associated him with for a very long time, pretty much all my life.
Bob and NBC. Its hard to find a legendary compatible relationship like this one though there are plenty (Barbara and ABC, Bob and CBS, Tom still at NBC, etc. You know these names too so don't act like you don't know them! Lmao.)
In the words of Frank Sinatra, he did it his way.
Well hearing that their set was installed in the newsroom explains the one image I saw on social media where a corner of the newsroom was cornered off with stage curtains. But other images I saw it looked like the studio was in a regular room.
I am intrigued as to what NBC plans on doing with some of the empty sound stages. They could probably divide it into two and have two decent size ones for both stations.
I only doubt the LED wall, as they just upgraded the "windows" last summer. The new screens were more upright, and didn't have a glare like the old ones. Here is a pic from that weekend, before they reinstalled the metal accents...
Also, Spring Rubber is right. There is so little room in that newsroom for a temp set, their flash cam setup is virtually right behind the set wall. Compare that position to how the open newsroom set was laid out (which is in the same spot as they are now)...
