ABC NEWS INSTALLS NEWS TICKER ON WEST 66TH, BECAUSE OUR EYES NEED MORE STIMULATION

In case your retinas aren’t burning from all the news, ads, tweets, emails, texts, and facebook updates that flash before your eyes all day, ABC News just installed a wraparound news ticker on the company’s offices at 66th Street and Columbus Avenue. The ticker, about 15 feet above the ground atop a new glassy ground-floor studio, was getting wired up today and should start spitting out headlines in the next couple of days, a worker at the site told me.

In all fairness, the new studio should spruce up an otherwise ho-hum building. That area is becoming a little media empire, where you can gawk at the beautiful tee-vee people. A couple of blocks away on Broadway, Channel Thirteen opened its own glass-front studio a little more than a year ago.
