MLB Moves In to Former Home of MSNBC

MSNBC-MLB.jpgBrian Williams worked there, so did Phil Donahue, Charles Grodin, and Maury & Connie and countless other TV talent. Now the old MSNBC studio in Secaucus, NJ has a new tenant: Major League Baseball.

MSNBC moved out of the facility in October 2007 and into NBC News headquarters at Rockefeller Center. According to NJBiz.com, the state of New Jersey is giving “an incentive grant of $8 million to Major League Baseball Properties, Inc. of New York City and its Secaucus-based firm MLB Network, LLC, in exchange for creating 201 new jobs and investing $54 million in a television-production studio.”

“We have selected the old MSNBC studio in Secaucus on Hartz Way to work out of and will debut the MLB Network on Jan. 1, 2009,” says MLB spokesman Matt Bourne.
