WNET, currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, recently offered Fishbowl NY a backstage view of its Lincoln Center studio. The location is unique because it is located at street level and a black curtain is kept down during all productions. The location also picks up many street sounds because it is not sound proof and therefore not much live content is produced for this location.
Though the Lincoln Center studio is up-to-date in the newest HD technology, it does not have a lot of storage space, and most of the production and voice-over work is done at WNET’s offices. Though it doesn’t happen often, Thirteen will do a live recording from Lincoln Center. One will happen on September 22 of this month for a presentation of the American Graduate Day fundraiser.
