  1. They did not use the street side studio. I was at the bureau yesterday while they were testing it, so I am curious as to why they didn’t debut it. There is one new studio to debut, correct. According my sources, it is on the 7th floor right below the studio seen above and has not even begun construction. Attached is quite blurry photo I took in a rush - you can see the new studio on the top floor and the studio with an empty grid below
  2. Today (as I am typing this actually), MSNBC is debuting 'The Sunday Show' from the same 8th floor studio. Here's a look at how it is using the space. It is worth noting a few things to orient yourself in this space: - this studio space used to look like this before a fire destroyed it last year. - the shot of Jonathan in front of the Capital Building is actually a window (four stories above Fox's Special Report/Fox News Sunday/Media Buzz studio). That window was covered by the video wall showing the White House in the link above -
  3. Here’s out first look at the new studio on the 8th floor of the bureau. This studio space debuted alongside MSNBC’s new show “The Cross Connection.” We can expect to see more of this space tomorrow during the debut of “The Sunday Show.” In addition, the street level studio should debut tomorrow for Meet the Press.
  4. Here is a preview of what we can expect from MSNBC's coverage on Tuesday night. For reference: JR, RM, & NW are in 3A (the main MSNBC studio & newsroom) while BW is in 3C (the Nightly News studio - ironically enough)
  5. Here's a preview of how we can expect MSNBC to use this space for Election Night
  6. NBC News will be used a significantly updated Today Show Studio 1A for election night. Here is a preview from Meet the Press this morning: https://www.newscaststudio.com/2020/11/01/nbc-news-election-hq-debut-2020/
  7. I noticed this desk this morning at the start of the Today Show. Studio 1A will be home to NBC's Decision 2020, so this desk might be used solely for election night. However, it is very similar to Today's normal desk so I wonder if it'll become a permanent Today fixture after the election. Al's current weather monitor was first used for the 2018 midterm election, so it wouldn't be a first if an election item became a Today fixture. I really like it!!
  8. Me again...so sorry! I had the opportunity to go by the space again tonight and even spoke with two engineers for the network. There are studios on at least three different floors of the building - first, seventh, and eighth. The streetside studio space and adjoining newsroom space will be primarily dedicated to MTP. However there is a spot of the studio that directly overlooks the newsroom that might be used for MSNBC dayside according to the people I spoke with. They are hoping to move into the studio after the election - sometime late November into January. The spa

ET Starting at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 3, NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt, TODAY co-anchor and NBC News chief legal correspondent Savannah Guthrie, Meet the Press moderator and NBC News political director Chuck Todd and NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent and senior Washington correspondent Andrea Mitchell will anchor rolling coverage from New York through at least 4 a.m. ET, and as long as the race continues to unfold.

  11. The new NBC Washington newsroom flash cam view debuted yesterday afternoon on MSNBC. This space is on the seventh floor of the new bureau, not the newsroom that can be seen from the street level. I have attached both the old and new newsrooms for comparison. The old newsroom is the darker of the two. UPDATE: NewscastNews Studio has an article out about the space now.
  12. MSNBC has again updated studio 3A, but more specifically the newsroom side of the space. I am not sure if this addition is permanent or temporary for the election, but it is interesting nevertheless. I am interested to see how MSNBC uses this structure on election night. For those familiar with the general layout of the space, this towering video wall and surrounding knee high wall are in the newsroom part of the set blocking the window into 3C (Nightly News).
  13. Any photos of any of these spaces you can share? Or know where I could find some? Would love a preview. The blue is quite awful! I don't mind it on the newsroom ceiling but it is too much in the studio
  14. Doesn't surprise me! I wonder if they'll come from this studio or one of the ones higher up in the building. I have been working my sources about what to expect on Election Night and what to expect leading up to it. Have you heard anything about what we can expect that night? Location/city/studio?
