Los Angeles –Classical KUSC 91.5 (FM), one of public radio’s most listened to stations, is moving to a new studio facility in downtown L.A. The newly renovated space is in the AT & T building near LA Live. The former location was at Fifth & Figueroa.
“The AT&T Center, which has been recently renovated, earned LEED Gold certification, offered us a long lease and the opportunity to use a 500-seat auditorium,” said station President Brenda Barnes. “Once we complete the moving process, we look forward to developing a plan for use of the auditorium so our listeners can enjoy special live broadcasts. We are proud to move KUSC into a green building.”
The first broadcast from the new facility aired at 5 a.m. yesterday. Production studios and offices will be moved this weekend, according to station Manager Eric DeWeese, who said programming would continue as usual. For more information about KUSC visit their website at www.KUSC.org
