‘Nightly News’ to debut new set

A little tidbit came out yesterday in Stephen Battaglio’s TV Guide article:

Constructing the new multimillion-dollar studio for NBC’s upcoming newsmagazine show “Rock Center With Brian Williams” has been a TV version of an archaeological dig. “We’ve found a piece of the set from the soap opera The Doctors,” says Williams. “And an old applause sign from when they did live TV there.”

Even the set, also the new home of “NBC Nightly News,” has been designed with his personality in mind. “We’ve added a lot of wood to give it a warmer, homey feel,” explains NBC News creative director Marc Greenstein.

Installation on the new set, by Clickspring Design, is wrapping up this week. No debut date is known for the set or “Rock Center.”
