July 2019 Meeting – Entercom Studio Tour

JR Rogers addresses Chapter 36 at the new Entercom

Last year, newly consolidated CBS and Entercom broadcast teams moved to a new facility on Granite Ridge Drive, across from the iHeart and NBCUniversal studios, forming a new media row. On July 29, 2019, JR Rogers and his staff allowed Chapter 36 to peek at the new studios recently and we can report they’re gorgeous. The new digs incorporate a modern Audio Over IP (AoIP) architecture by SAS, so fewer wires were used in building the system out. Al Salci of SAS gave us a rundown of the system architecture and some of its options. Many thanks for lunch, Al!
