TT4 - WNYC Facilities and "Soundcheck"
WNYC is a non-profit, public radio station located in New York City, comprised of WNYC AM and FM and WQXR. The stations are members of NPR and are known for their nationally syndicated news and culture programming and Internet radio broadcasts. WNYC reaches more than one million listeners each week and has the largest public radio audience in the United States. The station now occupies two and a half floors of a 12-story former printing building.
Soundcheck is a one-hour weekday talk show hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer and is about music and the arts. Soundcheck features interviews with musicians, critics, journalists, authors and it also features live musical performances in mix of genres, including indie rock, jazz, classical, and world music. The show also airs on XM Satellite Radio Channel 133. The tour will feature the Jerome L. Greene Performance Space. The Greene Space hosts live broadcasts and tapings of WNYC’s signature programs; concerts and festivals from WQXR, New York City’s sole 24-hour classical music station; and wide-ranging events such as the Battle of the Boroughs talent quest, The NEXT New York Conversation series, and A New Theater of Sound. A multimedia performance venue, The Greene Space is outfitted with cutting-edge digital audio and video production systems that allow it to live as vibrantly in the virtual arena as it does in its physical home. Each year, thousands of people experience the 125-seat venue and millions more download podcasts and stream audio and video of live events created in the space. A news ticker carves through The Greene Space and out to the windows on Varick Street, making breaking news available to passersby, including some 35 million en route to the Holland Tunnel annually.
This event is limited to 30 people.
