I suspect that much of the distancing on screen hasn't necessarily been for actual risk minimization, but public service "modeling" behavior for viewers, which I don't necessarily think is a bad thing! I wouldn't be surprised if things gradually come back to normal soon. 

I actually disagree. I am pretty sure it is for actual risk minimization. Many stations still have weather and sports people working from home.

In terms of career progression, one would not go from anchoring a broadcast at WABC to anchoring World News Now. It pays less and the hours are worse. If anything, you sometimes see the opposite - Liz

I hope Robin Baumgarten gets invited to the grand opening.    

Rob went home today after recovering.

6 foot rules still apply inside.  Some are returning to sets, but not the full compliment.  That will take more time once more people are vaccinated.

Right.  I don't think you will see most stations return to having anchors sit shoulder to shoulder until the CDC says it's okay for vaccinated people of different households to be indoors, unmasked, within 6 feet from each other. 

 

They only just last week said vaccinated people could be unmasked if outdoors and 6 ft apart, so I imagine it will be some time.

Not gonna lie but after watching so many newscasts with 'heads in boxes', I'm going to find it hard to get used to seeing anchors sit tightly together again. Even the anchors sitting a few feet away at the same desk makes more sense to me from a presentation standpoint, but...I might be alone here.

No, current CDC guidance allows vaccinated people from different households to be unmasked indoors:

  • You can gather indoors with fully vaccinated people without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart.
  • You can gather indoors with unvaccinated people of any age from one other household (for example, visiting with relatives who all live together) without masks or staying 6 feet apart, unless any of those people or anyone they live with has an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

 

Obviously the circumstances of a workplace will be different, so it is good that stations are acting cautiously rather than moving too fast.

My only preference would be to please let live shots with no one in it please take off the masks. Every time I'm hearing a masked live shot it sounds bad going into the mic.

You’re right. I stand corrected.

Well that day arrived sooner than we all thought. NBC’s TODAY has their anchors back to normal seating this morning.  Let’s see how quickly the other networks and local stations can do it. Some of it will depend on readjusting the technical set up of the last 14 months; most of it will have to do with who’s vaccinated at each station and network.
