Jane Pauley returns to ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ — though without the normal set
Before that, Pauley had appeared in a taped open on March 15, 2020, introducing a repeat of the show’s 40th anniversary edition taped in Studio 45 as normal.
April 5’s edition was the first one that Pauley helmed completely since CBS mostly closed its New York news facility.
However, she was not back on the Studio 45 set — instead she appeared to be chroma keyed in front of still images of the set.
Some of the elements behind her appeared to be superimposed or simulated.
