Election Night 2016 marks the culmination of nearly two years of debates, name-calling and tough decisions about who should be the 45th president of the United States.
Fox News is marking the occasion by debuting its new $30 million street-side midtown Manhattan studio, which doubles as a delayed 20th anniversary gift to itself.
The new digs, which are surrounded by the latest in LED technology, are the newest high-profile project for Diversified, a New Jersey integrator with an increasingly high profile in this industry.
Fox News’ new home is in a former Charles Schwab branch that was completely gutted and renovated along with Fox Business Network’s main studio.
planning other renovations at its headquarters in the coming year, including new workspace for staff in the newsroom. As well, FoxNews.com will see upgrades to enhance the user experience.
“I find tremendous amount of pride in what we do here – I can assure you that Bill (Shine) and I are going to do our very best to innovate,” said Jack Abernethy, co-president of Fox News, at a recent event marking the anniversary. “An example is this beautiful studio here.”
At that anniversary party, Fox News officials gave some members of the media an early look at the studio it will unveil live on the air for Election Night.
