Here is another shot of the workspaces right behind the cameras, same set up as before. As many have said its not horrible, but its not spectacular. Still feels "makeshift-y" somehow.

Of course we knew it wasnt going to be a huge space as NY functions as a bureau and as the main broadcast site, with the main newsroom still at CNN Center. I personally was expecting more than just white paint on the walls and the row of screens over the office doors on the right side. I do like the big screen in the back. I can certainly see that being expanded eventually to cover the entire back wall. CNN love its screens. I do notice there is hardly any hard branding anywhere to be seen on screen. There is one CNN logo to the extreme left of the camera and not prominent at all. There are far more logos on the screens. VERY UNUSUAL. I was kinda expecting the newsroom to look like an updated version CNN Washington Set 2.0 in a newsroom setting. The big glossy CNN red desk or something.

Their go to design firm was CLICKSPRING. And apparently they credited with this. Seems like CLICKSPRING only did the actual set space. The plaform and desk. Because they rest looks like it was done in house. So I expected something else. The channel had a signature look because they the same design firm. Then things when off the rails.

I hope they dont plan on bring that NEW DAY brick monstrosity over. Hate that thing. While not a disaster its not that impressive overall.
