Ground was broken Tuesday evening for a 5,000-square-foot public access television studio, the city's first. Located in Beverly Hills High School, the studio will have three cameras, editing rooms, offices and a training center for individuals and organizations interested in producing their own programs.
Air time will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis, said Susan Keller, a board member of the Beverly Hills Community Access Corp., a private, nonprofit entity created by the City Council. Anyone interested in using the studio and equipment must complete a training course which will be available at a nominal charge. For information, call Lauren Goldfarb, executive director, at (213) 284-8150.
