But it wont matter, as CNN of course doesnt operate a singular branded service for London like the BBC. So the LDN moniker is basically a nonstarter. Just like CNN New York is branded with a NY theme and not seen on air. Its simply internal branding for employees that likely wont make it on air in any real significant way.

Would it be too harsh to suggest CNN is the 'Coronavirus News Network' these days. It's no doubt a big news story but every time I tune in these days they're leading with the coronavirus story and in particular the 'Diamond Princess'. I wouldn't be surprised if they'd interviewed everybody on that ship at this point.

Still at least we're nearly had a full week of Your World Today/The Brief in the first time for what must be 3-4 months. It says it all when it's a surprise when CNN actually stick to their scheduled programming.

Bianca Nobillo has just announced she won't be on The Brief next week due to rehearsals at the new CNN London studio (Cyril Vanier will be filling in). Next time she is back on air it will be from the new studio, Week on Monday launch?

Also seen the London 'flash set' used for presenting/anchoring a couple of times this past week - Connect the World on Sunday and the 8amUK CNN Newsroom today (covering for Atlanta) - I'm guessing CNN London haven't enough staff to cover extra shows from their current studio whilst rehearsing at the new one? Usually when CNN London covers 'out of normal hours', the studio is used

I wonder if Cyril will be in the current London studio, a flash set, or Atlanta. Seems strange that she would need to be in Old Street during her broadcast but a technical team would be available at Turner House.

Then again CNN Domestic used temp tech help during their transition from Time Warner Center to Hudson Yards.

With a project that big, you really need as much of a full staff as possible to rehearse a live news broadcast. There are so many different technological instruments needed to pull off live news on a daily basis, and the smallest but important little quirks of each one have a habit of popping up whenever there's a big change in systems or facilities. I'm sure CNN's engineers and directors are tied up in making sure the new facility will be up to standards for the first broadcasts, so they may need to slim down the current on-air product from the Turner House.

I will also say that in these kinds of run-throughs, you also definitely need to have anchors and producers involved. Without them, you don't get the feel of an actual newscast.

Here it is!





I'm hoping that button is pressed before that set is put into use. That column is way too close to the desk. I am also hoping there is an actual newsroom in the somewhere.

I really like that, seems like CNN NY is their inspiration. I hope we get a newsroom view as well, it's been long overdue.

What's behind that glass and white CNN logo in the upper right side?

If you look closely it appears to be a workspace or in the least a corridor. Kinda of reminds of the workspace above the Don Lemon studio.

That set seems a nice mix of elements of the CNN main NY set (the New Day/Outfront set) and Studio 7 (with that newswall to the side) from that photo Max has put online.
Looks an improvement on the current set which has always been a big screen and not much more - whereas even from that photo alone you can see a few possible presentation points.

CNN's in simulcting mode over the Weinstein verdicts. They seem to be using a new style of breaking news graphic with thick red and white stripes on the background screen during John King's hour - can't say I'e seen it on screen before and it looks messy certainly in comparison to what was used until now.
