  1. Sunday Today (sans Willie) updated to the new Today Show look this morning. Its bug has a white horizontal NBC News logo, versus the colorized stack one used during the week. Wonder if Hoda and Jenna are next to update to the new look?
  2. New set + look tomorrow (Monday 8/14) at 4 pm
  3. Licht said at the WBD upfront a few weeks back that changes are coming to the morning show. https://www.thewrap.com/cnn-boss-morning-show-reimagined-chris-wallace-hbo-max/amp/
  4. My sources say the studio is getting reworked. Not a full overhaul, but some changes. They are currently using the Atl&Co set for shows - some are using the main part of it (pics 1+2 above), while others are using a temporary set up in the corner of it (pics 3+4 above). Crash confirmed the changes on his Instagram, too!
  5. Saturday Today has an updated background in their Washington studio (N5). It debuted today. Their virtual background makes them look like they are on street level with a similar set up to studio 1A in NYC. It appears the NBC family of channels is investing a lot of money in virtual backgrounds (we see them on MSNBC Reports, several other MSNBC shows, and now on Saturday Today). Pics attached show the previous and new background.
  6. NEW: CNN is launching a block called ‘CNN Sunday’ this fall that will include longform shows, including Chris Wallace’s former CNN+ show. Licht also says their morning show will be “reimagined” this fall.
  7. It has a lot to do with this, I am more than willing to bet. I don't think it is any secret that Discovery executives didn't want WarnerMedia to launch this before the merger went through. Yet, they did it anyways... weeks before the merger. I would argue its more of a FU than anything. Most of the evergreen content will likely make an appearance on whatever the combo of HBOMax and Discovery+ becomes.
  8. She is the second senior WH official to make that jump in recent months. Symone Sanders show launches next month.
  9. According to Twitter, they are in studio K.
  10. CNN+ is now live online. You can subscribe at the reduced monthly rate or the annual rate. Several of their daily shows have launched episodes already ahead of the official launch tomorrow.
  11. Where did you see this? Any sneak peaks? Also wonder if this means their new set will debut then?
  12. Tom anchored Top Story tonight from a set I don’t recognize. Does anyone else recognize it? Or is this possibly a new studio for his show/NBC News Now?
  13. CNN+ to Launch March 29, 2022 NEW YORK, NY – March 11, 2021 – CNN announced today that CNN+ will debut on March 29, 2022 in the United States. CNN+ will be available for purchase at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year. Early subscribers that sign up within the first four weeks after March 29 directly with CNN+ will have access to the “Deal of a Lifetime,” or 50% off the monthly plan – for life – as long as they remain subscribers. “March 29 will be an important day in the history of CNN and CNN+ will be a critical part of our future,” said Andrew Morse, CNN EVP, Chief Digital Officer and Head of CNN+. “I am so proud of the work our teams have done to ensure our world class journalism and storytelling comes to life on this new platform. We can’t wait for our subscribers to experience it.” CNN+ was announced in July 2021 as set to debut in Q1 of 2022. The product offers subscribers three types of content: live, on-demand and interactive programming, including a whole new way to engage with CNN’s world class journalism and storytelling. “We’re excited for everyone to experience CNN+ and see what we’ve been working on,” said Alex MacCallum, CNN Worldwide Head of Product and General Manager for CNN+. “We have a really compelling content offering with CNN’s world class journalists and are confident in the product offered at this compelling price.” CNN will have a single CNN app that will offer access to both CNN+ and TVE experiences, with easy navigation between the two. In the single CNN app, CNN+ customers can explore a range of new live, on-demand and interactive content through editorially-curated and personalized experiences that suit their interests. Pay TV customers can also enjoy the TVE experience that they’ve known for years, including access to CNN’s linear TV feeds of CNN, CNN International and HLN as well as a substantial on-demand offering, which will be available exclusively to pay TV customers. The content slate for launch is available on the CNN Press Room. Additional CNN+ shows, talent, content offerings and business updates for 2022 and beyond will be released in the weeks, months and years to come.

  14. That will not happen. Joe (possibly both) is a Florida resident so he is required to live in Florida at least 183 days per year. https://www.alperlaw.com/florida-asset-protection/florida-residency/
  15. JUST IN: Stephanie Rhule is set to replace Brian Williams as the host of the 11th Hour, according to Axios. Her current 9 a.m. show will be absorbed by Morning Joe, although it is not clear what that will look like exactly. Note: Way Too Early at 5 a.m. is also under the Morning Joe umbrella.
  16. The changes brought CBSN very much in line with the extensive visual and brand rebrand that CBS News has gone through in recent times. It continues to tie so many of their brands together. Throughout the day, the CBS News Streaming Network will air live daily newscasts of up-to-the minute news. Anchors Vladimir Duthiers, Anne-Marie Green, Tanya Rivero, Lana Zak, and Elaine Quijano will now, for the first time, be joined by Tony Dokoupil, co-host of CBS MORNINGS; Michelle Miller, Jeff Glor and Dana Jacobson from CBS SATURDAY MORNING; Jericka Duncan, anchor of CBS WEEKEND NEWS and CBS News national correspondent; and correspondents from across the Network. The evening lineup kicks off at 6:00 PM, ET with the nightly political program RED AND BLUE now drawing upon CBS News’ Washington team of anchors and correspondents. At 7:00 PM, ET, the CBS News Streaming Network will deliver a live prime time news hour, recapping all of the top stories of the day and leveraging our New York headquarters and Washington and Los Angeles Bureaus. Beginning at 8:00 PM, ET the stream will present content from CBS News’ flagship broadcasts The new changes include weekly shows highlighting several of CBS' longtime brands - CBS Sunday Morning, Money Watch, Climate Watch, Eye on America, On the Road, etc. And for fun, attached is a .gif of the new CBS News Mornings (previously CBSN:AM). High-res pics from CBS PR are also attached
  17. Ayman didn't host his show on Peacock last night. Being so close to the holidays, he could simply be off. They could have chosen to go with alternate programing tonight instead of having someone else host his show. That's common
  18. She has given birth - Russell James Fichera. He was 5 pounds, 5 ounces and measured 18 inches long.
  19. Here’s what the studio is expected to look like…
  20. NBC News confirmed to NewscastStudio that the show has “permanently” moved to Studio 1A.
  21. Here’s a look at how Nightly uses the space. You’ll notice new insert and full screen graphics, however, the open and L3 remain the same. Interesting - Nightly, Today, and Meet the Press all originate from street side studios now.
  22. Lester confirmed the news on his Instagram. https://www.instagram.com/p/CTx0Z3vJcVZ/?utm_medium=copy_link
  23. BREAKING: Nightly News is moving into studio 1A along with the Today Show - starting tonight. Several sources have confirmed the news, including a NN producer on Twitter. https://twitter.com/jasoncalabretta/status/1437536515383611393?s=21
  24. He joins the desk between 7:15 - 7:30, depending on the news day. He is officially named the 'news anchor' similar to what Natalie and Ann used to be. However, he largely just anchors parts of the show.
