ABC Redesigns ‘World News’ Studio

dianesawyer_8-16.jpgABC News is in the midst of refurbishing its 66th street news studio where “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer” originates, TVNewser has learned.

We should hear more soon about what new technology is being put in place, but we have heard that the construction will increase the functionality of the studio ten-fold. In addition to “World News,” “Nightline,” “20/20,” and special events broadcast from the space.

For the time being, the programs are broadcasting from temporary setups in the same studio. The network is anticipating that construction will be completed this week in order for a full debut on Monday.

It’s been a few years since the studio underwent any major construction. With recent budgetary cuts at the network, an ABC insider tells us, “This is the most economical redesign of that space” that the network has done.
