CBSN’s national feed returns with its own content after coronavirus forced it from its home
CBSN used various spaces within the complex, but mostly originated from the Studio 57 newsroom.
CBSN Boston, the regional version of the national network run by WBZ in Boston, mostly handled the national feed stream in the interim.

After multiple cases of coronavirus were reported by CBS News staffers, the network mostly shut down the broadcast center in NYC.
It briefly reopened it with minimal crew, but eventually opted to move those staffers out as well.
Since then, the network has taken the strategy of spreading out its operations to help with social distancing.
“CBS Evening News” had already moved production to Washington and has continued using the new studio the network built there during the pandemic.
Much of the network’s editorial and technical staffers are working remotely.
