I wonder if new graphics will come with the studio relaunch. I like the current music, but if they do change it, I’m hoping it’s something with a nod back to the Peter Jennings-era music. Not a fan of

That's okay.  I will point it out for you.    You claimed that Elizabeth Vargas got her job because of her race ("...[Simpson was] unfairly latinolized by the terrible Elizabeth Vargas")

YES! YES! YEEEEEEAAAASSSSS!!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! For bringing back that familiar melody (with the ABC News signature of course) from the Peter Jennings era! AND, for getting rid of that

We're talking about this two-story mini city?

I liked this set a lot but I think it’s too much for a daily news program. Hopefully a more toned down version of this is what we’ll see.

 

Was this in the studio Tamron Hall films in?

Yes; that set was located in TV2 which is now home to Tamron Hall. 
 

I thought the election night set was extremely over the top and unnecessary.

Seriously, they already have Time Square Studios when they do presidential election coverage, I feel like that's a better location anyways.

I'm a little surprised ABC isn't putting World News up in the Times Square studio for time being. They own that studio space. They're not afraid to use it for a ton of other productions.

Never did I think I would read on here on a hope for a toned down set. Lol. 

Phbbbbbt. I want a FIVE STORY ITN-style atrium set for ABC News. One for WNT! One for Nightline! One for This Week! One more on top of This Week for WNT! I dunno what they'd make the 5th story for, but they have that Disney MCU money now! Do it!

Yuss. Brilliant idea. That set was brilliant.

Replace fourth floor WNT with ABC News Live -- and the fifth floor be for WNN & ATM -- and you've got a plan.

WNT doesn’t really need the large Times Square space. It is a one person show with an occasional in studio reporter. Doesn’t make sense to take on the additional expense of having WNT there (although Disney owns the space, the rental money comes out of ABC News’ budget). 
 

With TV3 unavailable, and only a small temporary set available, it makes sense for GMA Weekend to move there since it needs space for 3+ anchors. Same for This Week, which needs space for multiple guests and the round table.

As currently constructed, WNT doesn't need much to go to air. Muir hasn't appeared standing up in that studio for the better part of a decade, and wears jeans most nights. Jennings & Gibson moved around the studio more than David. Like local newscasters around the country, a modern, spacious studio might force him to put on nice pants.

I just thought about this several weeks ago, I’m not sure when the last time I saw Muir standing in the studio. As you mentioned Peter and Charles used to open their show and present the Closer Look segment while standing.


And, ironically, they both hated the pointless wandering away from the desk to stand up somewhere for 30 seconds only to return to the desk right after that. I believe Diane’s tenure ended the WNT standing shots.

Is that a true story? That’s interesting to hear because it was such a minute detail that for whatever reason sticks out as a distinct point of difference between two of my favorite anchormen’s tenure on the show compared to David Muir.

Here’s another sneak preview. Straight across the studio from the main desk on the left is the annex into the ABC Live set

The same view less than a month ago... showing the area to the left you are talking about.

Yep, even for ABC.

I would understand if it’s Fox.  I can’t help but think some of this is just for Super Tuesday, leave some elements in and then bring it back in November.

Was scrolling through the “ABC News” location tag on Instagram and came across this preview. This looks sweet 👀👀

Looks like the poster wisely took the photo down. The only abc photo I see is on the ABC News Live set.

Election night is always over the top. I'm more interested in how they'll use it nightly. The options are wide open. This is the first time in more than a dozen years that they've explored the potential of the studio's height.

If they don’t incorporate the world into their reporting or tell David Muir to talk like a normal anchor and not some theater dropout they’ll have a complete package... can we also not do weather with “millions impacted” every time a rain cloud rolls by?

I guess the CURRENT World News set-up still includes the 2nd video wall. Maybe I just missed it, but this is the first time I've seen an exchange at the desk all week.

I saw that last night as well.  I found it kind of weird that the monitor in the front of the desk appears blurry with that angled shot.
