NBCUniversal-owned necn debuted its new state-of-the-art studio to viewers on Wednesday.
"Over the last year, necn has gone through a complete revitalization with one goal in mind - to bring our viewers across New England the best breaking news and weather coverage possible," said Mike St. Peter, Senior Vice President and General Manager of necn, who joined the network just over a year ago and is leading its transformation thanks to a significant investment from NBCUniversal.
The dynamic studio is home to necn's nearly 70 hours of live programming each week.
The new studio offers the following features:
- 46 high-definition monitors
- A "working" weather center
- A rotating anchor desk
- An interactive screen that will serve as a "giant iPad" for journalists
- A newly designed interview space
Necn is the largest 24-hour regional news network in the U.S. It launched on March 2, 1992.
