News Nation Update

Posted February 25, 2020

It’s been 5 weeks since we announced the birth of News Nation on WGN America.

We wanted to give you an update. 

Our set designs are complete!  We cannot wait to build it and show it to you.  Studio 3 will be the home of News Nation with a state of the art and beautiful set. 

The newsroom design is just as spectacular, we’re building out an entire digital section that will be bringing national news from the center 24/7.  Updates will be pushed live throughout the day. 

Hammers will be swinging on both the newsroom and the set beginning the first week of March.

Here are the before pictures, as you can see we have a lot to do!

Meantime, behind the scenes, we are interviewing and getting close to making some key hires.

Looking forward to making WGN America your home for news.

– Jennifer Lyons, VP of News
