CNN Studio D – Washington

Washington, D.C.

Located at CNN’s Washington, D.C. bureau, Studio D serves as the primary home of “The Lead” and “Inside Politics.”

The set debuted in January 2018 and is in a space formerly housed CNN’s “Capitol View” set, with the windows now concealed by LED video walls.

The studio space, which has seen sporadic usage over the years primarily as a flashcam studio, was completely gutted for the 2018 upgrade, which uses the same footprint but maximizes grid height and floor space.

Much of the studio’s look draws inspiration from existing CNN studios, including the clean and modern surfaces, a plethora of video walls, bold red floor accents and metallic header elements with cutouts.
