  1. This new desk is starting to look familiar. Just needs some flowers in front.
  2. There is a door from the fourth floor gallery hallway to the set balcony, and from there you can walk down the spiral to the floor. However, the balcony itself is small, and not much headroom under the grid.
  3. To accommodate social distancing on election night, some analysts will not be on the TV-3 set, but be downstairs on The View set which has been very nicely redressed for the election.
  4. Yet another use of the new set, from the Chadwick Boseman tribute. A minor tweak, the last few steps on the spiral staircase have been turned outward as they were getting in the way of the swinging LED display.
  5. In the previous construction photo, the new curved wall is not installed yet, but part of it'sn black frame can be seen on the right. The old WNT home base was on the right and GMA Weekend was on the left. This photo from earlier during demolition of the old set taken from almost the exact same spot in the upstairs gallery should help you get your bearings.
  6. Thats it on the left side before the frosted glass wall was put up in front of it.
  7. Tucked away in a corner of TV-3, this tiny workhorse set has been the home of the highest ratings for WNT in decades.
  8. False alarm. Testing ongoing. We'll see.
  9. I'm starting a new TV3 thread here since all the posts about the new set are getting stacked on the WNT thread. So far, we've seen election coverage and the 20/20 Coronavirus broadcast from the rebuilt studio. Tomorrow morning we are expecting weekend GMA to return from TSS. Testing is going on today.
  10. For those wondering which show would be the first to use the new set... check out 20/20 tonight.
  11. Here's a better shot of the "ABCNEWS NEW YORK" part of the room behind Jennings. The window to the downstairs control room now can be seen. The monitors behind were visible behind Jennings on WNT in the 80's.
  12. The removal of false walls from the former news bays on each side of the studio revealed windows to the outdoors which were part of the building design. You can see them on the far wall in the picture. Also note the spaghetti of wires talked about in the article. Finally, you can see the black curtain (with protective plastic in front of it) on the right side of the large part of the studio. Behind that was the first temporary set. It would be later removed when it was time to work on that part of the studio.
  13. No more. Those spaces will be used differently.
  14. Was there today. The set is a little over halfway finished. It maximizes the space in a manner similar to 30 Rock's 3A. Different functions for different parts of the studio, all integrated into a single unifying set. If you remember the midterm election set you have an idea of the look. Just over 2 weeks to air!
