CBS This Morning” has moved all of its anchors into home TV studios as of March 30, 2020.

The network had been broadcasting from the Ed Sullivan Theater March 19, 2020, after the CBS Broadcast Center in New York was mostly closed after multiple cases of coronavirus surfaced in the complex.

The weekday edition spent a day in Washington, D.C., earlier in the outbreak. Meanwhile, its Saturday edition was back in Studio 57 for one day with a limited crew before the network moved out again.

On March 25, 2020, “This Morning” co-anchor Anthony Mason began broadcasting from home after a family member began exhibiting a symptom of COVID-19.

The Ed Sullivan Theater, located on Broadway, is owned by CBS and is normally the home of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which went on an early hiatus when the coronavirus outbreak began.

“The Late Show” is scheduled to return March 30, but will originate from Colbert’s home with interviews being done video video calls.

Starting March 30, “This Morning” moved Gayle King and Tony Dokoupil to home based setups.

This appears to be the first case of a major network multi-anchor show originating with talent completely outside of TV studios.

King appears to be sitting in a living room like setting with framed photos on the wall and a monitor with the “CTM” logo while Dokoupil appears to be sitting in front of a video panel.

Dokoupil is married to NBC and MSNBC anchor and correspondent Katy Tur. Tur helped out with behind the scenes technical aspects and makeup, according to photos the show’s executive producer Diana Miller tweeted Monday.
