Syracuse University debuts new studio and innovative center for journalism studies

Syracuse University cut the ribbon on its upgraded journalism building this week, part of the Newhouse School.

The Newhouse Studio and Innovation Center is part of an $18 million renovation of Newhouse 2 and includes a cutting-edge media facility for students.

Broadcast Design International worked with Syracuse to develop the Digital News Center, providing turn-key support for design, construction, installation and lighting design.


The building includes three unique facilities:

  • Dick Clark Studios: Named for legendary entertainer and SU alumnus Dick Clark ’51, the studios will be a high-tech entertainment production environment rivaling many Hollywood studios
  • Alan Gerry Center for Media Innovation: Named for Cablevision Industries founder Alan Gerry, the center will be the creative hub where Newhouse expertise in content development and production will meet the latest media technology and programming trends
  • Digital News Center (pictured above): This newsroom will be dedicated primarily to news, talk and magazine style production, with multimedia capabilities and a file-based digital media environment
