The ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest begins the day broadcasting his top-rated local morning show from this compact ground floor radio studio, moving upstairs to anchor the network’s daily news telecast later in the day. Large windows that look onto the plaza outside the network’s headquarters enable crowds of fans to participate in his on-air radio antics.
Scope of work involved building a new acoustically-isolated studio shell atop a new spring isolated floor slab. Upgrades to the existing windows and a new ceiling grid with theatrical lighting allow Seacrest to derive video content during his radio interviews. Acoustic devices are concealed behind fabric-covered wall finishes in the main studio suite, which includes space for call screeners and producers. The private lobby entered directly from the plaza doubles as a green room. An adjacent production studio provides redundant broadcasting capability. Base building electrical systems were upgraded to accommodate the new radio equipment. Improvements to the window systems also provide increased security.
