NBC Sports Philadelphia New Studio?

Recommended Posts

New set coming for NBC Sports Philadelphia. Can't speak for the other networks, but NBCSP has been using that Comcast SportsNet-set-in-a-can virtually un-altered since its debut in 2008 so this is much much needed.

Yeah I saw the make shift newsroom they have set up at Penn's Landing on Barrett Brooks' Instagram. I figured this was coming with the overall renovations going on at the Wells Fargo Center. Would only make sense renovating your space would be part of that. 

 

Any timetable of when the studios will be done? They just said "a few weeks" on air but we know that could actually mean a few months lol

Months is more like it. Main studio is being gutted to the walls and ceiling, new infrastructure going in, additional studios also being built. Essentially a new station is being built while occupied. Talent and some techs go over to the old TCN studio for broadcasts. The project actually has nothing to do with the WFC building renovations, just concurrent.

Any reason why they don’t plan on colocating the studio in CTC?

Logistically why wouldn't they want to be in building and in the same area of all four teams they cover? They're the broadcast partner of three of those teams. They'd be down there most of that time anyway. It would only make sense to be headquartered there.

 

It's not like they're renting out that space in the Wells Fargo Center, Comcast owns the building. They have a unique situation with in the group they're owned by corporation that owns one of the teams they cover.
