The Today show has had mayn studio designs throughout the years.
Studio 1A Overview
Studio 1A is located in Rockefeller Center just west of the GE Building, and Northeast from the Ice Rink. Studio 1A has been re-done many times, both exterior and interior.
Studio 1A exterior
Studio 1A exterior has only been changed three times since its debut in June 1994.
August 13, 2012 - Current
While the today show was in London for the 2012 Olympics, Studio 1A was remodeled. Everything in the front was dropped, including the ticker and the TVs. It was replaced by an LED TV which shows different animations during the show. It animates the shows opening sequence from 7am - 11am. Just after 11am they change it to a black and white picture showing the show from the 1950s - 1970s with a white ticker on just above the lower windows.
Late 1999 - July 24, 2012
In late 1999 the exterior of the studio got a change. The large TVs turned into smaller TVs. The ticker also grew a bit bigger and changed to green and red, the wooden texture was dropped.
June 20, 1994 - Late 1999
The first today show studio design had more of a wooden texture to it and had larger TVs in the front. And the ticker was Orange and Brown.

Nothing is known about the new look for the TODAY show quite yet. All that is known is that “It is much more than a fresh coat of paint,” and that it will consist of a new modern look (with a lot more bells and whistles to play with. say Don Nash), Also it's got The Orange Room, The Social Media Hub. It is the second today show set that has been broadcasted in HD.
