From the Mailbag: How old is the WKYC Broadcast Center?
Q: How old is the WKYC building where you are located on Lakeside Avenue now?
A: We just celebrated our 6th Anniversary at 1333 Lakeside Avenue after "officially" moving into the building in January 2001. Although the newscasts were produced and directed from here starting in December 2000 while the building was being finished around us, the anchors remained at the old building at E. 6th St. until the night of the Superbowl: Sunday, January 28th, 2001.
During the transition time, the cameras were fed via fiber optic to the new building.
Scott Newell, Kristin Anderson, Eileen McShea and Chuck Galeti were the first to anchor a newscast in the new building (though from a temporary set in the newsroom).
Tim White, Romona Robinson, Mark Nolan and Jim Donovan debuted our new main set the following night at 6 PM.
