In another thread I mentioned there was a electrical fire at 400 North Capitol Street that caused Fox News Sunday to relocate to their owned station WTTG. Well according to an email that TVNewser acquired
it sounded like the fire started on the eight floor which houses NBC News, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC News Channel studios along with what I believe is the ITN bureau.
C-SPAN which is also a tenant in the building was able to resume broadcasting from their studios at 11AM.
According this video on The Hill
a C-SPAN editor said that C-SPAN and Fox studios sustained extensive damage, while the NBC studios sustained extensive smoke and water damage.
Here are reports from ABC affiliate WJLA
, Fox owned station WTTG
, and CBS affiliate WUSA
. Surprisingly NBC owned station, WRC, doesn’t have anything online.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.
