NBC’s Education Nation Looks Ready For Rain

By Alex Weprin 

Last year, NBC News’ inaugural “Education Nation” event was marred by rain. Much of the event was slated to take place in Rockefeller Plaza, and while there was a tent it wasn’t quite enough to keep out the water. The result was that many segments had to be moved to the MSNBC and NBC News studios inside 30 Rock.

NBC News is not about to let mother nature get in the way again. The organization tweeted out a picture of the set construction (right), and it looks like this year’s set features a heavy-duty roof that should keep the event dry.
