  1. I haven’t been able to understand why Nexstar and NewsNation didn’t just launch as an OTT streaming channel. NewsNation truly is a good product - the tv audience just doesn’t exist. Nexstar’s internal catchphrases is “digital first” - yet they did the opposite here. When every other media company is pouring money, people, and effort into streaming vs linear tv - they did the opposite. I would’ve loved to see this product as a hybrid of NN, local news, and the old HLN. Presented in a Peacock type format. You could have your main “channel” that streams N
  2. My bet is that CNN+ is going to be more inline with Peacock than any other streaming service. I bet we can expect to see a main streaming channel with live content, as well as other channels that will run CNN’s special and docuseries. Then there will be a Netflix like gallery of content.
  3. Structural elements are going in! It appears we can expect wood tones, rather than the old metal.
  4. NBC Primetime has officially debuted! Mike will be hosting from an outdoor studio that he will share with the Today Show.
  5. NewscastStudio has an article *after* I post here: https://www.newscaststudio.com/2021/07/21/nbc-tokyo-olympics-set-preview/. This is at least the fifth time this has happened - eye roll.
  6. Here's our first look at the Today Show's set in Tokyo - on the 5th floor roof of a Hilton hotel.
  7. I like it so far! I’ll be interested to see how it’s used across shows, networks, and platforms. The studio she’s anchoring from is actually in a temporary structure along the bay.
  8. CNN announced today that they will launch CNN+ in the first quarter of 2022 with 8-12 hours of original live content each day. They are looking to hire 450 people in the next 6-9 months to support CNN Plus. https://variety.com/2021/digital/news/inside-cnn-plus-a-first-look-at-the-new-streaming-service-exclusive-1235022517/
  9. Kasie announced this morning on MSNBC’s Way Too Early that today was her last day with the Morning Joe franchise. In addition, she's leaving the Peacock. Variety is now reporting she’s going to CNN - we’ll specifically CNN+ where she’ll have a major presence. https://twitter.com/kasie/status/1415983618531397644
  10. Fox News has quietly rolled out updates to their Washington DC bureau. I have visited their bureau several times before and they had two operational studios. They were next door to each other - one had a window over looking the Capital (used primarily for SP, FNS, and TIA) and the other was primarily used for TCT and FN@N. However, these updates revealed three new studio spaces. It is unclear where they are in relation to the previous spaces. It is worth noting two things - this is in the same building as NBC/Meet the Press and Tucker Carlson has a new studio
  11. Savannah has been working from home recently (I would assume in quarantine before traveling to Tokyo). Al appears to be in his upstate house here. The other three are all seated in front of the video wall in 1A. However, having them in a three shot next to two remote boxes would make everyone too small to see. So visually, it is easier to have everyone like this. For reference, I have attached a pic of what they look like in the studio.
  12. The Tokyo 2020 (2021) Olympics kick-off TWO weeks from today with the opening ceremony on NBC. This thread will serve as the place to chat about all things Tokyo. The day will begin with the network’s first-ever live morning broadcast of an Opening Ceremony across all time zones starting at 6:55 a.m. ET/3:55 a.m. The Today Show will then have a live special edition from 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the east. NBC's primetime edition of the Opening Ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m. ------------------------------------- In addition to having spac
  13. Here’s a look at the studio's status today… FullSizeRender.mov
  14. That’s at least the third time that’s happened to me. I mean I love NewscastStudio but if you’re gonna piggyback off my posts, let me at least work for you.
