‘For the Record’ debuts on MSNBC with urgent look
Greta Van Susteren began her new program at MSNBC this week, bringing her passion for politics and justice to a new cable outlet after a previous tenure with Fox News Channel and CNN.
“For the Record with Greta,” while sounding familiar to past viewers of her Fox show, captures its own unique look on MSNBC, creating a sense of urgency and drama in its graphical look.
The shows open features a series of large words intermixed with topical imagery of Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Drones and the White House. The words, such as power, influence and action, set up the shows main coverage areas and the next year in politics.
While the Capitol view remains, graphic panels on the set have been replaced by stacked stone walls with uplights. New video panels have been added around the studio, including a large monitor wall on the right-hand side, displaying show-related graphics during the program.
The studio also serves as home for Roland Martin’s “TV One News” along with normal usage by NBC News, such as during Washington event coverage.
