Fox News on Thursday unveiled its renovated Washington, D.C. bureau honoring two legends from the network ahead of its 25th anniversary next week.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrated several new state-of-the-art studios, a new control room, audio tracking booths and an array of television monitors that will be able to feed incoming remote live shots at locations like the Pentagon, White House and Capitol Hill, among other features.

The D.C. bureau also established a new greenroom commemorating Charles Krauthammer, a longtime Fox News commentator who appeared on "Special Report with Bret Baier" for more than 10 years. Krauthammer was also previously a columnist at The Washington Post and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for commentary while he was at the publication.

He died in 2018 after battling cancer.

“This is also a moment to remember an extraordinary voice and a gentle giant in our business who we continue to miss every day here at Fox News Media,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Fox News also honored Tony Snow, who was a former “Fox News Sunday” anchor and commentator for the network. He left the network to become White House press secretary for then-President George W. Bush. He died from colon cancer in 2008.

The network dedicated a new state-of-the-art audio studio to Snow on Thursday.

“To walk down the halls and see the Charles Krauthammer greenroom and the Tony Snow radio studio is to be reminded of our proud heritage in the DC bureau. They pay tribute to some of the great journalism produced here over the years—and the standards we need to live up to,” Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceBret Baier confirms his 'concerns' about Tucker Carlson's Jan. 6 documentary Rittenhouse says Biden defamed his character Surgeon general warns of uptick in COVID-19 cases as cold weather arrives MORE, anchor of Fox News Sunday, said in a statement.

“Both men were icons to a lot of people at FOX and around the country. To see their names on plaques around the office reminds us of them every day,” Fox News anchor Bret Baier said in a statement.

“Charles used to spend a lot of time in the greenroom regaling guests with stories and thoughts about the issues of the day. So it’s fitting that he’s remembered there," he continued. "And Tony’s time in radio and on set for FOX News Sunday just down the hall is a great memory of someone special to all of us."
