As KTUU marks its 60th year on the air, the NBC affiliate is building a new studio in downtown Anchorage.
“This is a major milestone for Channel 2,” president and general manager Andy MacLeod said in a statement. “As we celebrate our 60th Anniversary this year, there is no better time to look toward the future. This 40,000-square-foot facility is an investment in Alaska, and it will give us the unparalleled ability to grow and develop content across all media platforms long into the future.”
Neeser Construction will build the new facility, which will a block and a half away from the station’s current studio and newstroom.
