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.
