The First Look at WNBC’s New Studio

WNBC has been in the market for a new studio since October. Channel 4 is joining the influx of city stations with new sets for their newscasts. In WABC’s case, it moved out of the traditional surroundings for a ground-floor windowed facility on the Upper West Side.

WNBC also is making the jump downstairs to 3C.

But as we reported last month, there were apparent delays to viewers finally seeing the new digs.

While the station isn’t ready to unveil the studio, and a spokesperson had no details about the target date, newscaststudio.com has the first photos of the new look. The pictures were taken with Today in New York anchors Darlene Rodriguez, Michael Gargiulo, Chris Cimino, and Lauren Scala.

The Website, which last month, said WNBC was scrapping the planned set design, has backtracked saying it’s a revised version.

Newscaststudio.com also says the new graphics were leaked.

Host Lauren Scala Hopes People Will Be ‘Inspired By’ New York Nonstop’s Great American Health Challenge

But don’t let the title fool you—this is pure New York.

This is a unique 12-week program where participants from the five borough complete “healthy” tasks such as: smoking cessation, nutrition, and sleeping better.

In the end, several grand prizes will be awarded, but the teams are also vying for the title “healthiest borough.”

“It is a battle of the boroughs,” says host Lauren Scala. “There [are] five teams of three people that represent each borough.”

Unlike the typical reality show that features contestants eliminated each week, here everyone remains until the end.
