El Paso’s oldest television station, CBS affiliate KDBC, will soon get a massive infusion of money and manpower, in the form of a new facility and dozens of new staffers. Robert Gray writes in El Paso Inc.:
Sinclair has also invested $11 million to turn the former Currey Adkins building at 200 S. Alto Mesa into a high-tech home for KDBC as well as KFOX, which has been located near the intersection of North Mesa Street and Shadow Mountain Drive on the Westside for almost 20 years.
According to Hayes, the cameras will roll at the new location by the end of next month.
“For the first time in years, CBS is going to have their own set, their own control room, their own reporters, their own team,” Hayes said.
