    Media New State of the Art Media Center above Champions Square

    New Orleans - New Orleans Saints, Hornets and FOX 8 owner Tom Benson cut the ribbon to a high-tech studio in the newly renovated Benson Tower, overlooking the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the New Orleans Arena, and the live entertainment venue, Champions Square, on Thursday.

    "This is another piece of progress for our city, especially as an addition to Champions Square," said Benson. "The new state-of-the-art studio will be a centerpiece at Benson Tower and will not only service our local market but also provide us the unique opportunity to provide services to national and regional networks coming into our city. The bottom line is that this is another step in the right direction and a positive one for our city."

    Tom Benson's local television station will air FOX 8 LIVE TAILGATE from the new studio on Friday, August 17th, with three hours of pre-game coverage beginning at 4pm.


    This seems pretty cool. It doesn't explicitly say in the article, but I assume this will probably be where the Hornets Fox Sports Pre/Post/Halftime show will be broadcast out of? Does anyone have any information on that?

    The best part of the article was that the studio has its own HD broadcast antenna built in, so at least Hornets games will get true HD every time, and not crappy PBS rented truck!

    "Times are not good here. The city is crumbling into ashes. It has been buried under taxes and frauds and maladministraions so that it has become a study for archaeologists...but it is better to live here in sackcloth and ashes than to own the whole state of Ohio."
