A CBS show will broadcast Wednesday from the new 102nd-floor observation deck at One World Trade Center in New York. The AP reports that “CBS This Morning” will air its entire two-hour show from the site.
“It’s an important booking for the morning show hosted by Gayle King, Norah O’Donnell and Charlie Rose, where things are looking up in its perpetual competition with ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ and NBC’s ‘Today’ show,” the story reports.
Scheduled guests for the event are New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and CNN host Anderson Cooper.
The observation deck opens to the public May 29.
“CBS ran some fiber optic line to ensure it can transmit a live broadcast signal from the space and will import a replica of the desk that the morning hosts sit at in their 57th Street studio,” the story reports citing executive producer Chris Licht.
