Complete control 

This national, progressive-entertainment, talk radio network--known for its outspoken personalities--launched in March 2004. There's a lot going on in this facility, and thanks to digital routing, Air America Radio maintains complete control

Don't Settle for McRadio 

McRadio that is produced in look-alike radio factories seems to be the norm. Lincoln Financial Group wanted to emphasize what it thinks is not only a unique feel-good experience for listeners and employees, but also a competitive advantage

From cramped classrooms to productive workspace 

The result of WFUV's $5.5 million budget and long, hard work from the engineering staff is a strong and flexible radio facility that provides a productive and flexible place for work.

Built for Success 

When it was purchased, the WKLU studios were in a house that at one time was a pet store.

Were you born in a barn? Actually, yes. 

This facility had been a working farm until it was converted into an industrial area in the mid-1980s, and the barn became a radio facility in 1995.

Dayton's voice of the arts gets a clearer voice 

The genesis of this project was an opportunity to relocate and upgrade WDPR's transmitter site from a deteriorating leased tower that was only 200-feet tall, to the local PBS affiliate's 1,500-foot tower.

Clear Channel Albany 

This station group recently relocated to a new facility in Latham, NY, bringing all seven stations under the same roof with the idea that merging all technical and business elements results in a smoother, more efficient operation for the entire group.

Building the new while maintaining the old: MPR rebuilds 

When Minnesota Public Radio first considered expanding its building, it didn't take long to realize there were new technologies to use and improved construction plans to implement. With this came the rare chance to revamp the technical operation.

Waitt's Store-and-forward Satellite Programming 

Satellite-delivered radio formats are not a new idea. But instead of a continuous audio stream and a fixed clock for affiliates to follow, Waitt Radio Networks uses a store-and-forward approach that allows greater flexibility to its subscriber stations.

Bob and Tom make big plans 

Ten years and more than 150 affiliates later, we look at the next generation Bob and Tom Show studio. It's brand new and immense, but no one has the guts to say it will be big enough.

Growing pains 

A new studio is a big change. Sometimes, there's more to adjust to than just the equipment.

Short on time 

Cumulus' new nine-studio location was to be built in four months. While this sounds like a reasonable amount of time, it's important to know that the building itself would not be built for another month.

WXPN procures a place in Philly 

After operating for more than 30 years out of a Victorian mansion built in 1875, WXPN, the radio station of the University of Pennsylvania, moved into a new, custom-built facility in September 2004.

Working separately working together 

What happens when you have four licensees, two distinct locations and one consolidation project?

Redefining a heritage 

After 79 years on the 23rd floor of its Times Square location, it was time for WOR to move its operations.

Bigger Is Better 

How can seven employees get their work done in a radio station that is so small, there is literally no room for them to do their work? They build a new facility.

Bonneville Goes Digital in St. Louis 

Bonneville International had a major problem with its four newly acquired radio stations in St. Louis, but it was nothing that a new studio couldn't fix.

WLRN expands its on-air services 

WLRN, a high-power FM operation based in Miami, is the pre-eminent NPR member station for South Florida.

KQED: Improving on excellence 

When the most-listened-to public radio station in the country upgrades to all-digital production, you can be certain that it will not be a timid or hesitant move.

A small market with big ideas 

In January of 2004, Renda consolidated all its stations into a facility in downtown Indiana, PA.

Effective facility consolidation 

The state of current networking technology now permits users several flexibility for the reconfiguration of any office environment.

The best laid plans 

In most cases, the plans are set and followed with minor variations because of challenges. In the case of Journal’s Omaha stations, just finalizing the plan was the challenge.

A New Michigan Radio 

WUOM, Michigan Radio, went through a revitalization in 1996, launching an NPR news/talk format that has led to a near quadrupling in audience since then. See how the new studios have helped the station achieve this success.

Step inside the studio used by Bill O'Reilly and Alan Colmes at Fox News.

Practical form, affordable plans 

When Nassau set out to build a consolidated facility for its stations in southern New Hampshire, the goal was to create a reliable and functional facility without breaking the bank.
