NBC Sports' Pyeongchang Studio Inspired By Local Landscape
NBC Sports today announced that its primetime and late-night coverage of the Pyeongchang Games "will originate from a 3,500 square-foot geodesic dome set, designed to appear carved" out of the local mountainside and "showcase the natural beauty of South Korea." The studio will feature a 40-by-16-foot LED wall, complemented by 18 55-inch HD monitors. The facility "provides space for a main anchor desk, interview areas, a news update desk, and more than 15 different stand up locations for host Mike Tirico to deliver analysis of the 18 days of coverage." The studio also will have a 1,000-square-foot facility on the roof (VARIETY.com, 1/3).
