MSNBC has gutted studio 3A and is expected to debut a new look in September. 
 

In these photos you can see where the newsroom side of the space was, as well as the studio side.

 

Stay tuned for more updates…

For something that debuted in 2007, it aged really really well - I'm honestly surprised they've completely cleared it out rather than rework what was there.

I cannot wait for the final product. The last MSNBC set/newsroom in 3A was utilized very well and looked amazing - even all these years later. I can only believe the new set will be just as great if not even better.

Time for me to go check the permit office in NYC… let me see what I can find. 
 

Couldn’t find anything. So they’re not doing anything structural to the building. But from what I’ve heard about NBC during Comcast and even during the GE years that there was always construction going on in some part of their condominium unit.

The original version of this set was one of my favorites. It had so much versatility and was repurposed in so many different ways with different blocking and lighting. It didn't look as interesting when they replaced half of it with video walls. My money is on the new one being almost all video walls.

 

A smaller "newsroom" is probably a safe bet too. I don't think it was ever much of a real newsroom. Does anyone else remember the story that they were paying people minimum wage to sit there and pretend to look busy by reading msnbc.com?

I swear it was a story on TV Newser, Inside Cable News, or one of those other late 2000s media blogs. I can't find it now, but from what I remember, NBC either denied it or walked it back somehow.

"First on NewscastStudio" yet posted a day after this thread...

 

🤔 Thinking Face Emoji

That’s at least the third time that’s happened to me. I mean I love NewscastStudio but if you’re gonna piggyback off my posts, let me at least work for you.
