NBC launches new Washington D.C. bureau and studios

I never cared for the old BBC TVC Barco studios, in my opinion they were too washed out (more so than Sky) but maybe because it’s in SD. The fake newsrooms never looked good.


Really?

Yes, I never liked the fake made up office look where there is no action. I do like ITV’s backdrop as it’s a control room that if I recalled had live monitor walls and was also made not to look realistic. Where as the old BBC studios were made a bit too realistic, many of the Barcos from videos I watched appeared to not be color matched had different brightness. To me the news studios where the main bulletins and news channel came from looked downright depressing. The Breakfast couch livened it up. But still has the fake background. I’d rather there be a camera view of a main location or even multiple locations side by side either by theirselves or set back with a common graphic.

Granite I got BBC World News a year before the new studios launch so I didn’t experience them. So all I have are old programs.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

The irony with most fake newsroom backdrops if they're often designed to look like the exact thing they're trying to hide by not having a real newsroom backdrop.
Here's to the next 20 ye.....

The Meet the Press set reminds me a bit of that time NBC decided to create a fake 'ye olde' London townhouse library from which to host their primetime London 2012 Olympics coverage (complete with whisky decanter).

Looks very American but I guess they were attempting to be British with their design.

OK, but you said the BBC backdrop was more washed out than Sky's, which was the bit I was questioning. To my eyes, the opposite is clearly the case.

My biggest issue with the Barcos is that they don’t appear to be color matched, have a uniform brightness and come across as dull. Where Skys are all uniform even if they are washed out. If that makes sense.

ABC News Chief National Affairs Correspondent and World News Tonight Weekend Anchor Tom Llamas is apparently moving (back) to NBC News according to the below:



I wonder if he'll get the weekend edition of Nightly News - currently split between two anchors, Kate Snow and José Díaz-Balart.


I home they don't replace JDB, I like him and believe he does well. Along with the face Caesar Conde came from Telemundo may help keep him there.


Just announced on today's ABC WNT:

CNBC's Sue Herera is moving from hourly news updates to an 'anchor at large' role next week, after 32 years with CNBC.

If her 'fill-in anchor' work going forward means covering shows rather than just news updates, it might be a more prominent role than she has had in recent years

And even on the toughest days she was a bright light, quick with a kind word and a smile.
