Friday morning, PIX11 celebrated the grand opening of our Brooklyn Bureau, the PIX11/Hyundai Studio at Barclays Center.
In 2014, PIX11 and Barclays Center announced a multi-year marketing partnership. As part of the collaboration, PIX11 has built a street-level, in-arena studio at Barclays Center looking onto Flatbush Avenue, which will serve as a Brooklyn-based hub for broadcasts. The studio will be used for daily live shots in PIX11’s signature newscasts, as well as for special presentations around big concerts and shows, civic and political events, discussions, debates and community activities. Broadcasts from the PIX11/Hyundai Studio at Barclays will begin the week of May 11.
PIX11 President and GM Rich Graziano, Brett Yormark, the CEO of the Barclays Center/Brooklyn Nets and Brooklyn Boro President were on hand to cut the ribbon (with big giant scissors!) as we opened the doors to the studio. Also on hand to celebrate with us today were executives from Brooklyn Hospital and the Brooklyn Hospital Foundation, Empire State Development, Atlantic Yards Community Development Corp and the NAACP.
