‘Meet the Press’ to debut new set

NBC’s “Meet the Press” is moving to a new home May 2.

The current set, which has been used for years, debuted in 1997 during Tim Russert’s time as host.

The set will feature two tables — one circular and one rectangular as well as two large-scale video screens that will display a background of the White House, floor-to-ceiling bookcases. Overall the look is described as “ultramodern.”
