Black News Channel Selects Devlin Design Group
Black News Channel, a provider of 24/7 cable news programming created “by people of color for people of color,” chose Devlin Design Group to design a newsroom featuring a “scenic storytelling environment” based on information gathered from focus groups.
The main studio located in Tallahassee, Fla., is the home-base for the network’s news, lifestyle and sports programming. A number of virtual sets, located throughout BNC’s bureaus, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, New Orleans and Jacksonville, Fla., will also be designed by Team DDG.
“DDG is proud to collaborate with the team at BNC to create a dynamic storytelling environment based on their vision for this ground-breaking network,” said Kartik Dakshinamoorthy, Devlin Design Group, VP scenic design.
The BNC studio design was unveiled at the NAACP Image Awards non-televised dinner, held March 29 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. BNC is slated to debut Nov. 15 to an estimated 33 million households.
