CBS morning revamp to include studio switch
CBS News has announced it will reshape its morning news broadcast with Gayle King, Charlie Rose and Erica Hill as anchors — and the show’s on-air look is getting a makeover as well.
The program, which has yet to be named, will also relocate to the CBS broadcast center on West 57th Street in Manhattan, producers announced.
The new show will broadcast from the ground floor of the CBS broadcast facility, with windows being added to the studio and newsroom area as part of a historic renovation to the building.
The show relocated to the General Motors building at Fifth Avenue and Central Park South in 1999. This facility included a windowed view of bustling downtown Manhattan as well as easy access the plaza in front of the building (which also includes an Apple Store) and to the nearby Grand Army Plaza.
The set has been tweaked with multiple times over the years and received a complete overhaul in 2008. The show’s graphics have also been changed several times over the years, including during the 2008 set remodel and, most recently, in 2010.
