New look for ABC News Breakfast too

By David Knox on January 30, 2012 / Filed Under News 9

Today isn’t the only one hitting the refresh button.

This morning ABC News Breakfast has a new look and a new presenter.

Karina Carvalho joins while Virginia Trioli is on maternity leave.

She joins Michael Rowland, Paul Kennedy and Vanessa O’Hanlon.

Here’s a glimpse of the set as it was being installed yesterday.

The show also adds a Weekend edition from 10am Saturday mornings on ABC News 24 hosted by Andrew Geoghegan and Miriam Corowa.

    Would be nice if ABC had a studio as big as the Al Jazeera one which they show at the beginning of every newshour bulletin.

    I like this set though.

    What was wrong w/ their old set? …

    It looks like the program is filmed in a very small room. The set needs a big feel.sunrise still has the best set if all three breakfast shows the big windows looking onto the street give sunrise the edge being in the plaza is a huge advantage

    Dear God. This and the appalling Today revamp – yech! Are there no decent set-designers at these neworks?

    Audio sounded a bit off too, as if reflecting from a flat. Like it better than the old distracting moving background, but “can do better, 7/10″. But please, no hideous bright yellow, orange and red like elsewhere.

    Agree with Rod – not enough contrast between wall, couch and presenters. Has a claustrophobic look. Hope they haven’t thrown away the old set.

    Michael Rowland was practically blending into the red/brown background when I briefly saw him reading the headlines this morning.
