‘Hollywood Squares’ for local NBC affiliates at Olympics

The “tower of babble,” as Al Roker jokingly referred to it, is home to many local NBC affiliates broadcasting from the 2012 Olympic games.

“[It’s]what I call ‘The Hollywood Squares,’ it is like nine broadcast booths,” Roker said. “There is another six [booths] that are really nice, air conditioned, with windows, toilets and all that, ours are basically, well, it is a tent camp,” he added jokingly.

Located next to the “Today Show” set, the tower rises three stories and is a beehive of activity during peak broadcast times.
