WASHINGTON, D.C.—In the run-up to Fox News’ 25th Anniversary on October 7, the cable news net is highlighting a newly renovated Washington D.C. bureau with a new newsroom, updated television studios, a freshly dedicated radio studio to the late Tony Snow and a new green room dedicated to Charles Krauthammer.

The renovations were completed in September and on September 30 Fox News held a ribbon cutting ceremony. It was attended by executive chairman and chief executive officer of Fox Corporation, Lachlan Murdoch, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media president and executive editor Jay Wallace.

During the September 30 edition of the “Special Report,” anchor Bret Baier discussed the newly renovated newsroom and dedicated studio and greenroom.

Baier explained that the new facility features “a state-of-the-art all new digital newsroom” as well as “two new flagship studios, a super high resolution technology platform for video and graphics.”

In addition “our newsroom [was] reconfigured to allow our producers and editors to easily monitor the ever growing number of satellite video feeds on 75-inch TV screens,” Baier told viewers in this video clip.

The newsroom features what Fox News producers and on-air personalities are calling “the compass” or “the ring.” The compass was built with 12 75-inch television monitors inside the ring and 40 32-inch television monitors outside of the ring (20 monitors facing inside the ring and 20 facing outside the ring).

This gives every employee in the newsroom access to have up-to-the-minute images and live news feeds from all Fox News Media inbound and outbound remote positions, including, but not limited to New York, the White House, Capitol Hill, the State Department, the Pentagon as well as major cities where breaking news is taking place, the network reported.

In terms of studios, Fox News Channel constructed two state-of-the-art studios that use the latest Vizrt technologies for its DC-based personalities. The network also added five stand-up camera positions in the bureau for guests and contributors.
