It feels a bit odd - not to mention expensive - using a completely separate studio for an hour that's now fully Today-branded. I expect this is only temporary and they'll either give the 9am hour a new Today-related brand of its own, or move it back to 1A for consistency.


It’s not really expensive. They own the studio and I don’t think there is a any renting scheme like there was at the BBC. Of course they could try and rent it out but the shows that would use it - syndicated ones already have their studios for the rest of the season and NBC probably planned not to rent it for several years.

As for staffing the third and fourth hour have their own teams (although with Megyn Kelly gone they could be using the regular show or her existing producers). They’ve always have a second control running for the third and fourth hours and enough staff so they can be taped while the show is updated for the western half of the country.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Different market of course but still saddens me that London can barely sustain one local channel with a minimal news operation whilst New York has local news channels in many of it's boroughs (7 from News12).
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television" thread?

London has plenty of local channels although most broadcasts to the whole country.

London only really has one local radio station now, the rest are all national networks, albeit some with London opt out programming. Though even that will change now the rules governing networking have been relaxed

Which part of the set was used for part of the third hour? It seemed like two square video walls that connected, much like in 3a. It didn't seem to be there in October when I visited the set. Could the upstairs have been redecorated?


I believe it is the revamped Orange Room on the first floor, which was modified for the midterm election converge in November.
