UA media resources built into Bryant-Denny Stadium
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — University of Alabama officials say Bryant-Denny Stadium will be home to a $14.6 million media center beginning next year.
School spokeswoman Cathy Andreen says university officials decided that building the 50,000 square-foot media center into the stadium was a way to ensure that all of the school's media assets were brought under one roof.
She tells the Tuscaloosa News (http://bit.ly/15ioZkp ) that consolidating the school's media resources into one space will translate into better operational efficiency.
The two-story space is expected to include studios, office and control rooms, editing suites, a conference room and more.
The space will house three University of Alabama media properties: WVUA-TV, the Center for Public Television and Radio, and Crimson Tide Productions.
Officials say reconfiguring the school's media resources will also provide room for collaboration.
