2017 in Review: MSNBC launches new shows, celebrates longtime favorite

2017 was a busy year for MSNBC — with new show launches, new looks and celebrating some longtime shows.

Perhaps the centerpiece of 2017 for MSNBC was the redesign of its main graphics package in May, which extended to all of the network’s programming. The new look included a generic look for “MSNBC Live” rolling news coverage as well as a look that was integrated with existing show branding.

In addition to the graphics update, another notable change in 2017 was an overhaul of NBC’s Capitol Studio N. 

The space was updated with wood tones and plenty of LED, including a movable LED video wall that covered the real window overlooking the Capitol. This studio is used for a variety of programming, including shows such as the now canceled MSNBC show “For the Record” with Greta Van Susteren as well for live shots and temporary homes for NBC programs including “Today.”
