New Studio Design from 1st of March for RTL's breakfast tv offering 'Guten Morgen Deutschland'.


RTL's show is beaten in the key demo group by Sat.1's Frühstücksfernsehen each day, and the new studio is part of an effort to gain back some ground. The show also recently moved its start time to half and hour earlier.

I heard Aktuell was supposed to be getting a new look and set this year.
Any update on that?

The GMD set is being called a 'transitional' set. In other words, it's a temporary measure. All RTL information programmes (Aktuell, Guten Morgen, Punkt 12, etc) will come from a new, single set from the summer. Work is underway on the refresh.
