CBS updates D.C. bureau

CBS News has gone live with a new Washington, D.C. bureau flashcam as part of a overhaul of its facilities in the nation’s capital that also includes a new home for its Sunday morning show “Face the Nation.”

The network’s D.C. newsroom recently moved to a renovated space adjacent to its old space, which meant the network’s flashcam position was updated as well.

The new look features a blue wall with a world map inspired by the Cronkite-era map used as an element in the “CBS Evening News” graphics and formally featured on multiple versions of CBS News sets.

A frosted glass “spit guard” on top of a knee wall runs behind the live shot location with the CBS News logos and the word “Washington” emblazoned on it.

Also visible behind this are what appear to be some workstations featuring a plethora of monitors — though only the backs of the panels are visible on air.
