“PBS News Hour” moved to a new broadcast facility in June 2024, debuting a new set that continues the clean design aesthetic introduced in 2015.

The new set, designed by Eric Siegel and George Allison, features frosted acrylics, red accents and satiny metals, with LED light stripes adding vibrancy. This redesign coincides with an expansion of the WETA building in Arlington, Virginia, adding three studios and upgraded technical facilities.

The centerpiece is a 25-foot LED wall creating a virtual set extension with a nighttime view of Washington, D.C. The studio also includes robotic cameras for improved shots and various interview spaces.

Public affairs program “Washington Week” also shares the studio with “PBS News Hour.”
