You may have caught a glimpse of the new set for ABC’s World News on New Year’s Eve. Since that Monday broadcast, Charles Gibson has been on the road. Tonight the set will have its big reveal. World News director Eric Siegel writes about it on the World News blog:
The new set is a warmer, more intimate environment that takes its cues from the on-air style and approach of Charlie Gibson himself. It features an even wider array of technological tools than its predecessor, including additional areas for presentation and video displays that are among the brightest and sharpest available. The anchor desk is also the most fully-featured we’ve ever constructed, giving Charlie and our team of correspondents all the tools they’ll need for ABC’s coverage of the upcoming presidential election. And it’s all HD-ready for when World News makes its transition to high-definition in the coming months.
