NBC News Moving Network Bureau to 400 N. Capitol Street NW

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

According to the Politico Playbook PM NBC is moving all of their 350 employees based at 4001 Nebraska Avenue to their Capitol Hill Bureau, which suffered a fire earlier this year.  They plan on taking over five floors, building new studios and a floor to ceiling glass studio on the first floor for Meet The Press.  The deadline Super Tuesday, March 3 2020.  I was wondering why it’s taken them a while to rebuild the main and insert studios after the fire and we now know the reason.  I’ve also noticed other employees moving out of their offices in other parts of the building.

 

Heres the full post from Politico:

PEACOCK NEWS ... ANDY LACK, the chairman of NBC News, used a town hall at 30 Rock today to preview the network's move from the Nebraska Avenue studios to 400 North Capitol, just blocks from the Capitol. 

This move has been long buzzed about in D.C. and New York. As Playbook reported in April 2017, NBC has taken over the old Johnny's Half Shell space, and plans to make it a street-level studio with floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the Capitol.

NBC is moving 350 D.C.-based employees to the new bureau in time for Super Tuesday 2020 -- March 3. "Meet the Press" and all of MSNBC's shows are moving to 400 North Cap. NBC will have space on five floors in the building. “Moving from NBC News’ historic Nebraska Avenue location to North Capitol allows us to brand ourselves in Washington in ways we’ve never done before,” Lack said.

 

 

This will further allow them to renovate (or rebuild) the Nebraska Avenue  building for WRC and WZDC which is already cramped for studio space.  If you recall WZDC’s spot is in former prop closet.
