Dignitaries will “flip the switch” on a vintage on-air light in grand opening ceremonies September 20 to officially mark the beginning of live broadcasts from the KOSU studios in downtown Oklahoma City’s historic Film Row.
Lt. Governor Todd Lamb, OKC Mayor Mick Cornett, and OSU President Burns Hargis will “flip the switch” for the on-air ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, September 20. The new studios are located in the Hart Building at 100 W. Sheridan in downtown Oklahoma City.
The 4,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility is located in the newly-restored Hart Building in the Film Row District. KOSU Film Row features new performance and production studios and an expanded and technically enhanced collaborative newsroom that will double the station’s capacity to produce local news and music and serve as a hub for content collaborations with the state’s other public media organizations. New satellite receivers and other technology will allow KOSU to upload and download NPR data and audio interviews faster and with greater clarity.
