CNN N.Y. newsroom is slowly being disassembled right in front of viewers
Update: “Early Start,” “Newsroom” and “At This Hour” have moved to Hudson Yards.
One of CNN’s newsrooms in New York City that serves as the backdrop for live news programming is slowly being dismantled.
Presumably the monitors are being either moved to the new building or have been removed and are being scuttled by the network as it prepares to vacate the space.
According to multiple tweets from CNN staffers and on air personalities, the move to the new building is being done in phases. In addition to workspaces for news staffers, the offices for most of WarnerMedia, CNN’s new parent formed after the merger of AT&T and Time Warner, are relocating to the Hudson Yards.
Back in 2017, Fox continued broadcasting from in front of a mostly empty newsroom set until finally taking it offline for the installation of a new set and newsroom in the space.
Time Warner announced the sale of Time Warner Center back in 2014 and the CNN logo was taken down in July 2015.
The skyscraper, which is now marketed as 3 Columbus Circle, was partially evacuated in October 2018 after a suspicious package was delivered to CNN.
