Solomon Group creates new traveling broadcast desk for CBS to replace one lost to Hurricane Sandy
December 1, 2012
Solomon Group is fortunate to have a wonderful relationship with CBS. We designed and fabricated the network’s set for its coverage of the 2012 NCAA Final Four in New Orleans. And in late 2012, our fabrication facility was buzzing with activity creating several broadcast environments for CBS’s coverage of the 2013 Super Bowl.
Then in early November, they called us for help. When Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, the network lost its traveling sports desk in the storm. CBS needed a new one for its coverage of the 2012 SEC Championship Game in Atlanta … in less than a month.
Our team worked quickly to design and build a brand new traveling desk that disassembles into three pieces for easy transport and sideline setup. And in a couple of months, the desk is scheduled to return to New Orleans where it will be used by CBS Sports inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center as part of the main set at Radio Row during Super Bowl XLVII.
