‘This Week’ Moving to Newseum Next Year
Sunday talker “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” will broadcast from a studio inside the freshly moved and upgraded Newseum, the museum dedicated to mainstream journalism just blocks from the U.S. Capitol in Washington, ABC News announced.

The production of the program will also be part of the Newseum visitor experience, at least on Sunday mornings. The studio will provide visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the production of the broadcast, and the public will be able to watch “This Week” on a giant monitor located in the atrium of the Newseum.

Broadcasts from a studio within the Newseum will begin in early 2008.

“This move extends the strong relationship ABC News has enjoyed with the Newseum for many years,” said ABC News President David Westin. “It’s a marriage of the great journalism George and his program practice every week with a museum celebrating what journalism means to this country.”

The new Newseum will open in the first quarter of 2008 on historic Pennsylvania Avenue, between the White House and U.S. Capitol. It will blend five centuries of news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on interactive experiences. The museum features seven levels of galleries, 15 theaters and state-of-the-art broadcast facilities where visitors can go behind the scenes to learn how and why news is made.
