NBC Sports Chicago, which is the home for Chicago Bulls, Blackhawks, and White Sox, has released information about the facilities in its brand-new studio that will be launched on Friday the 24th of July by 6: PM. The significant thing is that they will be launching this new studio on the same day that they will be covering the White Sox Opening Day 2020 on multiple platforms.
The new NBC Sports Chicago studio spans 4,100 square feet, and it is meant to offer a modern and sleek open area design that works with LED technology. It will feature an interactive demo section that will fascinate whoever sees it, with many analysts or anchor positions that enable flexibility and movement.
The highlight of the new studio by the network is the 23-foot wide LED monitor that is positioned in the room, which stands as the centre of attraction in the main anchor area. In the advanced new demo area, there are four vertical monitors and on a 16’x9’ monitor wall. The other features of the demo area are the 15’x8’ LED floor which is the newest in broadcasting technology, and which allows the on-air talent of the firm to analyse, breakdown, and give insights on play during football, hockey, basketball and baseball events.
Talking about the studio, Senior Vice President and General Manager, NBC Sports Chicago, Kevin Cross said that their expert talent pool will have the chance to deliver their multi-platform content in a never seen before manner through their amazing new studio. For him, their innovation on methods of delivering content to their sports fans would be enhanced by the industry standard design of the new studio. He said that they are all full of joy and cannot wait to experience the inaugural broadcast from this top-notch studio on Friday.
The new studio for NBC Sports Chicago will be the major system for the broadcast of the pre and post-game live shows for all its team partners in the state, including the Chicago Bulls, Chicago Blackhawks, and Chicago White Sox.

The eventual design of the NBC Sports Chicago set came as a result of a long-term collaboration between NBC News and NBC Sports and the Jack Morton Worldwide’s design group. Jack Morton Worldwide has been involved in award-winning design works in the past, and they include the Regional Networks of NBC Sports in San Francisco’s Bay Area, Boston, and Philadelphia, 30 Rockefeller Plaza’s Today Show studio, NBC News Studio 6A, and Sports headquarters of NBC in Stamford, Conn., which includes Football Night in America. Blackwalnut completed the fabrication work, and they are a firm that has made a name in some areas like the MSNBC and NBC Nightly News’ scenic environments, the coverage of Olympics by NBC Sports in PyeongChang, Rio and Sochi, plus Regional Networks projects for NBC Sports. The lighting was done by The Lighting Design Group and their experiences with NBC include collaboration in the 1992 Olympics. It was Planar that designed and fitted the LED display technology, and they have done other projects like handling the headquarters of NBC Sports in Stamford, Conn., and also assisted in NBC’s Olympic and Super Bowl coverage in the past.
