Today CBS launches CBSN Los Angeles from the KCBS and KCAL newsroom based at Studio City. This channel follows the successful format perfected at CBSN NY. The old newsroom set was modified in a costeffective way for this OTT streaming network. The station apparently has new mic flags featuring the CBSN LA logo and a large CBS eye logo.

According to industry publications the main CBSN is proving to be quite successful and the launch of CBSN NY has been successful as well. Plans are for CBSN Boston latet this year and then CBSN San Francisco. Apparently the CBS Chicago affiliate news product so weak they got passed over to launch a local channel for the 3rd largest market.

The new mic flag design is CBS EYE / CBSN (insert city), with the last two sides being station IDs. In New York and LA, it'll have the CBS 2s on one side and the sister station logos (KCAL/WLNY) on the other side

Wow, I had no idea it dated back so long. The national desk in my mind doesn’t seem to match up with old studio.


I found a picture. It was from that brief, late 2010/early 2011 era when they swapped Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez for Chris Wragge and Erica Hill. Around the same time, they also swapped the main desk and update desk with much uglier ones.

It looks as though CBSN painted it, put different lettering in the front, and put a bigger glass top on it.

Damn I knew cbs was cheap but not that cheap.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

LOL. Im sure all the network news divisions have storage spaces with loads of unused set pieces. CBS just happens to repaint and reuse theirs. Cheapskates. Well it is cheap route to go, but their thriftiness resulted in a profitable operations. Too bad CNN Headline News figure this out. (Yet Zucker still has a job)

I know there’s space for it, probably hidden away somewhere in the Broadcast Center basement. But it’s a sharp contrast to NBC and them playing desk roulette (maybe NBC’s scenic shop does them but CBS has one as well in NYC) and even ABC to an extent.
