More ‘Today’ Studio 1A renovation details emerge
Today SVP Noah Oppenheim has now confirmed all of the changes listed for ‘Today’, along with the fact it will debut next Tuesday.
- The floor is being refinished. When the set debuted in 2013, it featured a faux light wood floor with a subtle zig-zag pattern. The floor update has been confirmed by “Today” talent on social media.
- The turntable will remain, our sources report. This feature has been used off and on for some segments (such as a shoe segment in 2014), but never really saw a lot of use. We’ll see if it becomes a main feature again.
- The Orange Room is being reworked to include additional video displays. Insiders say this is the most significant change of the update.
- Some of the studio’s wall coverings are being updated as well.
- There will be a new desk and sofa.
The new Studio 1A will likely debut next Monday or Tuesday, say insiders.
