Federal News Radio — the next generation

with 5 comments

wfed-studio-1So starting this afternoon, Federal News Radio 1500 AM starts broadcasting from our new studios.

For a former print guy, this is a bit daunting. When I started here, I didn’t have radio experience, so I’ve been learning all sorts of new technology — the magic of radio.

We have been in a… well, not the greatest studio, to be honest. But starting this afternoon, we move to very fancy — and very daunting — new digs.

Why daunting? This is the “board,” as they call it in radio… and while we don’t use all of these buttons regularly… it is still a whole lot of buttons. We then also have to use the computers on either side.


More photos of Federal News Radio’s new digs — and you can see our old digs — after the break…

One more overview photo of the new studio…

You can compare that to our old studio…
