FOX Stations to Move Broadcast Operations to Tallest Building in the Western Hemisphere

NEW YORK – The Durst Organization and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey today announced that WNYW and WWOR will move their broadcast facilities from the Empire State Building to One World Trade Center, effective in early 2018.

“We are pleased to welcome FOX’s WNYW and WWOR to One World Trade Center’s broadcast facility,” said John Lyons, Assistant Vice President and Director of Broadcast Communications of The Durst Organization. “One World Trade Center has re-established itself as the preeminent broadcast facility in New York and by early 2018, seven TV stations will transmit their broadcast from the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere.”

This summer, Telemundo 47 was the first television station to broadcast from One World Trade Center. It will now be the primary broadcast location for seven of New York City’s 10 TV broadcasters. One World Trade Center sets new standards of design, construction, sustainability and beauty, and heralds the revitalization of Lower Manhattan. Managed, operated, and leased by The Durst Organization, One World Trade Center is a center of innovation and creativity, and the most recognized office address in the world.

The Durst Organization, founded in 1915 by Joseph Durst, is the owner, manager and builder of 13 million square feet of premiere Manhattan office towers and 1,950 residential rental units with 3,400 in development. The Durst Organization is recognized as a world leader in the development of high-performance and environmentally advanced commercial and residential buildings. www.durst.org
