Brian Williams’ ‘breaking news desk’ debuts on MSNBC

The new home of Brian Williams on MSNBC officially debuted Thursday (though, Tamron Hall did use it on Wednesday for a bit).

Located in the back of Studio 3A, the breaking news desk isn’t of the Fox News scale, but features two monitor and a small desk.

Clickspring Design worked with MSNBC on the project, creating a new space for Williams.

During Friday’s breaking news, the desk was put into full use with Rachel Maddow joining Williams. Two backlit walls with monitors flank the desk, with a wraparound view of the MSNBC newsroom.

The area also has at least two doors glass doors with tall metal pulls that essentially form a key part of the background behind both Williams and the guest position.
