The New Set For ‘New Day’ Takes Shape


By Alex Weprin Comment

CNN is hard at work constructing a brand-new set for “New Day,” the channel’s new morning show, which will debut June 17.  CNN senior producer John Griffin tweeted a few photos of the set under construction. So far there isn’t much to see, except for one big design choice: exposed brick. Lots and lots of exposed brick. There will also be an open green room.

While “Today,” “Good Morning America” and “Fox & Friends” rely on glossy studios with large open windows, and “Morning Joe” goes for the contemporary look,  there is another morning show that loves itself some exposed brick and an open green room: “CBS This Morning.” For what its worth, CNN president Jeff Zucker had nothing but praise for “CTM” at the press conference for “New Day” not long ago.
