Motown Station Goes Downtown

WXYZ in Detroit has started doing their news from their new studio in downtown Detroit Today.

The station starts broadcasting “7 Action News at Noon” from a new, glass-enclosed space inside the Qube building on Woodward Avenue near Campus Martius Park.

WXYZ says the studio also will be used in daily news coverage, newscasts, special programs and interviews, station officials said.

But, the main studio is staying in Southfield, where they have been since the late 1950s.

“We are thrilled to now have a bigger presence in the city and to be part of the resurgence of downtown Detroit,” Mike Murri, WXYZ’s station manager, said in a statement. “This studio allows us to create new connections with the people who live and work in the city, as well as those who are guiding the transformation of Detroit.”
