“Tour of KFOR’s New Building”
You are invited to attend the next SBE Chapter 56 meeting on Wednesday, November 22th at 1:00 pm at the KFOR Studios, 444 E. Britton Road, Oklahoma, OK. Lunch will be provided by Earl’s Rib Palace.
The meeting will be a tour of KFOR’s new studios in Oklahoma City. KFOR, the Tribune Media station and NBC affiliate, has moved into a new facility and, along with the new building, debuted new news branding, set, graphics and music. The building itself is designed to stand up to severe weather — namely the tornadoes that are known to sweep across the area. The windows features protective glass designed to stop a two by four and other debris during severe storms and thick walls built with concrete and steel reinforcing are designed to be tornado resistant.
One of these work areas is the station’s newsroom, which also serves as the primary background behind the new set from Broadcast Design International. The technology on set was provided by Panasonic with integration by Tribune. The studio space itself is separated by a knee wall with frosted panels and also features an option to cover the newsroom opening with a video panel. The design of the newsroom itself is carefully integrated into the set design, with rows of sleek monitors, color changing textured walls and the station’s logo emblazoned on the front of the assignment desk, which is visible between the anchors on the primary two shot. Also included is a four-panel video array in the center, which also appears prominently behind the two shot.
Join us for an exclusive behind the scenes tour, plus a chance to network with our friends for the Oklahoma City SBE Chapter!
Lunch will be provided!
We hope to see you there!
