‘CBS Weekend News’ temporarily moves to L.A.
“CBS Weekend News,” the weekend version of “CBS Evening News” shifted production to Los Angeles Saturday, March 14, 2020, as the network’s New York broadcast center continues to operate below capacity due to a cluster of coronavirus cases.
The network was back in the facility for “CBS This Morning Saturday,” March 14, but the network apparently opted to have its owned station KCBS handle the national newscast that evening.
DeMarco Morgan, who also remotely anchored owned NYC station’s WCBS’s local news March 12, anchored the March 14 and 15 “Weekend News.”
WCBS’s studios and newsroom are also based in New York broadcast center.
For the broadcast, Morgan started standing next to a control room background with video panel before moving to the main anchor desk with a video background showcasing the L.A. skyline.
