About Our Studios

The Tisch WNET Studios at Lincoln Center is home to some of New York public media’s most exciting programs and initiatives. Located at the southwest corner of 66th and Broadway, this state-of-the-art facility houses two television studios.

The facility is named in honor of James S. Tisch and his wife, Merryl H. Tisch, whose generous $15 million gift to support the Studios is the single largest gift from individuals in WNET’s nearly 50-year history.

The space features 28 feet of floor-to-ceiling windows that embody the “public” in “public media.” Through these windows, New York natives and visitors alike watch tapings of some of their favorite WNET national and local programs, ranging from PBS NewsHour Weekend, Thursday night’s NYC-ARTS and Saturday’s Reel 13 to our nightly news programMetroFocus. Meanwhile, producers, anchors and performers have a front row seat to the energy, creativity and diversity of New York City.

What kind of equipment is here? The Tisch WNET Studios are connected by fiber optics to WNET’s central control room in Midtown Manhattan. This allows for remote operation of robotic cameras, audio mixing, and two-way video feed transmission. The entire facility (including common areas) is equipped with pre-installed lighting positions that help make the whole space “TV ready.” Built around LED and rear-projection technology, the set is easily transformed for individual programs and events. Inside, there are 14 televisions, including a 103” plasma visible from the street.
