It’s Official: “This Week” Moving To Newseum

DCRTV heard rumors of this months back and ABC made it official today: “This Week” will now be filmed at the Newseum. In an internal email sent by David Westin, obtained by FishbowlDC, the ABC News president says:

    I’m pleased to announce that, beginning early next year, “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” will move to a dramatic new location. As you may know, the Newseum has been building a new facility on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the National Archive and next to the Canadian Embassy. In a new partnership, ABC News has agreed with the Newseum for “This Week” to originate from a studio overlooking the Capitol. Not only will this reinforce the heart of “This Week” as a program dedicated to intelligent discussion of the major policy issues being addressed in Washington, but it will also give visitors to the Newseum the opportunity to observe first-hand the production of our program.
