Changes ahead for Channel 4 News setting

ITN has revealed that Channel 4 News has changes afoot visually.

The programme has moved into a ‘virtual studio’ based on the previous glass set, with a view of the ITN offices as a backdrop, while over the next month the regular studio is refurbished. ITN are keeping very quiet about the exact changes but do admit the new look will see a brighter, lighter studio with more interactivity. The new permanent set won’t however be a virtual set.

“You’ll notice our presenters sharing more of the programme. Some of our viewers told us they want to see the second presenter doing more, so we’re working that into the programme. You’ll also see more helpful indicators of what’s coming up, more regular debates and a pacier opening to the show.” ITN say of the soon to launch new look programme.

Channel 4 News broadcasts from the ITN Studios in London’s Gray’s Inn Road.
