All three ‘CBS This Morning’ anchors start broadcasting from home
“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.
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 Late Show” is scheduled to return March 30, but will originate from Colbert’s home with interviews being done video video calls.
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.
