‘World News Tonight’ originates from Phoenix
“World News Tonight” posted a photo of anchor David Muir at the “SportsCenter” anchor desk on Twitter, which is part of a traveling set the network uses for a variety of coverage.
The early blocks of the first feed of “World News Tonight” were hampered by the University of Phoenix Stadium’s in-house loudspeaker system, which competed with Muir for attention.
Eventually, Muir switched to a handheld mic over the lapel one he started the broadcast with, which helped a bit.
ABC and ESPN are both owned by Disney.
