These TV Anchors Take Us Inside Their Home Studios

Delivering the news, from the dining room table

We’re all getting into the groove of working from home. Habits have been formed, routines shaped, Zoom calls the new normal. But what if your work-from-home situation included having a large TV camera, teleprompter, lights, audio equipment, a producer, camera operator and maybe even a makeup artist all hanging out in your living room?

That’s the situation for dozens of TV news anchors, both local and national, who are having to host their shows from their homes.

Earlier this week, I spoke with two of them—Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner and Fox News/Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo—as part of our daily live conversation series Adweek Together. I also talked with Scott Wilder, vp of filed operations for Fox, who oversaw the installation of 42 home studios in New York, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

Watch below as Faulkner and Bartiromo take us inside their homes for a look into how TV news is produced during the time of coronavirus.
