More changes at NBC Sports Philadelphia.
In addition to canning something like half of their talent over the last two years, the Comcast-owned local broadcaster is currently going through studio renovations, which will take Amy Fadool and Marc Farzetta off of their 5 p.m. Philly Sports Talk show for the rest of the week.
That’s per her:

All the network’s studio shows — including Quick Slants, The Daily Line, Sixers Outsiders,and pre- and post-game shows for the Sixers and Flyers — will be broadcasting from the NBC Sports Philadelphia+ studios on Columbus Boulevard until renovations are completed. That’s expected to happen by the end of the March, just in time for the new Phillies season.
The studio renovations are the final step in a year-long overhaul that has involved the network’s content floor, business operations, and technical facilities.
Viewers can expect all the network’s shows to look dramatically different when they return to their new studio space at the Wells Fargo Center. According to the network, the shows will have a brighter, lighter feel with an emphasis on team colors and cityscape visuals. The revamped studio will sport a new main anchor area featuring a dynamic LED video monitor wall background, and a demo area featuring a state-of-the-art LED video floor. There will also be various stand-up locations with movable monitors.
No word on whether or not Barkann is keeping the blue glasses. We’ll have to see.
