The nighttime news program, which feature multiple anchors including Terry Moran, is moving a number of producers to New York to accommodate the switch to HD. The program has studio segments from New York and Washington, D.C.
B&C reports that ABC is not planning to increase its high-def productions out of Washington. As of now, only This Week With George Stephanopoulos is broadcast in HD from D.C. Consequently, the switch to HD will necessitate moving the producers to NY.
"In September, ABC (and Nightline) will be going with HD facilities in New York," a source told the magazine.
B&C said ABC News had no official comment on the high-def switch and the show's shift to New York.
