NBC Vacating Burbank; Article mentions that DOOL's new co-tenant will be IHeartRadio and others

I have often wondered if the aggressive taping schedule was partly due to potentially losing their space at the current studio. If they have 6 months worth of shows filmed in advance, it makes a move/change all that easier.

Article cites all the upcoming NBC departures, but doesn't say much about Corday/Sony/DOOL. Apparently IHeartRadio has already set up shop and other "media companies" are scoping out the place. Supposedly, DOOL is staying, though at one point in the article, DOOL gets lumped in with all the other NBC departures.

Here's what the latest NABET bulletin from December says about NBC:

NBC News

The move from Burbank to Universal is going as planned. Our Transmission Department is almost fully operational and the NOC will be completed soon. The move for Access Hollywood has now been delayed until 2015.

Six of the Nabet Tonight Show staff members are taking buy-outs and the five remaining will be reassigned in early March 2014.

This makes me worried about the fate of the show...
Moving the sets to another location or operating in Burbank while everything else is gone will probably cost more money.
Plus they lost the money from SOAPnet, a few affiliates dropped the show or moved it to another timeslot, etc.
I know the ratings are better but I'm still worried. :(

DAYS still has their international licensing (Australia, Europe, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand ect)....plus they are the most profitable soap on the web for downloads. Not only that but Corday Productions also makes a profit from Y&R since they are a part owner...who knows if they funnel some of that cash towards DAYS or not.

I really wonder what NBC will do....I can see them moving the show to Universal with the rest of the LA area produced NBC shows....at the same time...i would be sad to see the show leave the home they have been in since their inception.

IF the show moves, I hope they're able to build larger sets and/or bring back older sets we rarely see.

I don't see NBC and/or Sony dropping Days of our Lives anytime soon.
