CBS This Morning heading to Times Square studio
CBS breakfast show to relocate to the former home of MTV's TRL in Times Square.
US breakfast show CBS This Morning will shift to a new studio in New York’s Times Square later this year.
The facility is located in the corporate headquarters of CBS News’ corporate parent, ViacomCBS, and once hosted the long-running MTV program TRL.
The show already broadcast from the location for a week last year, when the network set up its Election Night coverage. It can also be seen from the windows of rival show Good Morning America, which operates a few blocks away.
The network said that co-hosts Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil will have new ways to conduct interviews and the facility will also be geared to blending feeds from the network’s news division and affiliates.
Shawna Thomas, who came aboard as executive producer in January said, “This gives me more options for movement and more options to play.”
Hosted by Gayle King, Anthony Mason and Tony Dokoupil, it screens in Australia on 10.
