Burbank welcomed KCET to the neighborhood Friday with a formal ceremony christening the independent television station’s April 16 move to the Pointe, a gleaming glass high-rise in the Media District.
Burbank Mayor Jess Talamantes, KCET Chief Executive and President Al Jerome, Burbank Chamber of Commerce President Gary Olson and dozens of others celebrated outside the new LEED Gold-certified building, which also houses the DC Comics arm of Warner Bros.
KCET broke ties with the Public Broadcasting System and sold its landmark lot on Sunset Boulevard to the Church of Scientology last year.
The organization occupies two floors of the Pointe, or around 55,000 square feet.
Jerome has said the new facility gives the station access to state-of-the-art production studios and a green screen.
