With New Avenida Location, KHOU To Become Only Station With Downtown Studio
KHOU 11 is partnering with the Houston First Corp. on the city's first network satellite studio Downtown. The new studio slated to open in March will be along Avenida Houston in the George R Brown Convention Center. The studio will be roughly 780 SF and across from Bud’s Pitmaster BBQ, boasting scenic views of the convention district.
The new studio will have the flexibility to open on to the plaza, enabling reporters to directly engage with the public and be at the center of major events happening in Downtown Houston.
“Our partnership with Houston First has been years in the making. The Avenida Houston location will put us at the center of Downtown activity, enabling anchors and reporters to live out our brand of ‘Standing for Houston’ by providing us with a closer connection to the community we serve,” KHOU General Manager Susan McEldoon said. “As the only station with a Downtown studio, we will use the Avenida Houston studio as our second home to produce big, bold, original content on all of our platforms.”
KHOU's hunt for a new headquarters after being flooded out by Hurricane Harvey is still ongoing.
