While on a day trip to our nation's capital, I decided to stop by the lovely Newseum for the third time in my life. What was different about this visit though, was that I was able to tour the studio of one of the most well-known news shows in America.
The Newseum, located conveniently on Pennsylvania Ave. in D.C., does not only host news-making items such as part of the Berlin Wall, the infamous "Watergate Door", and the Unabomber's cabin, but it is also home to a major news studio. I was able to get a tour of the Knight Studio where ABC's This Week with George Stephanopoulos is taped every Sunday morning. Despite how it may look on TV, the newsroom is actually relatively small. The room contains millions of dollars worth of lighting equipment and probably just as much in AV equipment.

Due to the heat emitted from the insane amount of lights, the room is constantly kept at 69 degrees Fahrenheit. Because of the small size of the room and the enormous amount of equipment, it can be relatively difficult to maneuver around various things in the space.
The image below shows a banner that is up in the studio.

Although many think that it is a green screen, Knight Studio actually does have a view of the US Capitol. The news desk is always placed in front of the view of the building to give the show a nice patriotic feel.

If you ever want to tour the Knight Studio, go visit the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and enjoy the other wonderful exhibits that the museum has to offer.
