Fort Worth-based NBC5 has waited a long time for this. And now the day is near.

On Nov. 3rd, following NBC’s Sunday Night Football, the station will originate its first newscast from The Studios at DFW.

As previously posted, this will mark an end to NBC5’s lifelong residency at 3900 Barnett St., which the station has occupied since its 1948 sign-on. Telemundo 39 and other NBC Universal-owned properties also will be making the move to the spanking new, 75,000 square foot facility. The new address is 4805 Amon Carter Boulevard, located five minutes from the south entrance to DFW International Airport.

Brian Hocker, vice president of programming and research, sent the first pictures of the new news sets Friday afternoon. Here’s a look at some of them, with all photos courtesy of NBC5.

This is the main anchor desk and surroundings for NBC5 newscasts.


NBC5 meteorologists will reside at “The Weather Experts” desk.


Newsmakers will bob and weave in a separate interview room.


Telemundo 39 newscasts will be in HD for the first time.
