KQED-San Francisco's master control room, home to a Studer OnAir 2000
San Francisco’s KQED Public Radio (88.5FM), considered the most-listened-to public radio station in the United States, has just purchased Studer’s new OnAir 500 Modulo for its Sacramento bureau. The console is expected to be installed later this month, making them “the first broadcaster in the world” to purchase the console, according to Studer reps.
KQED’s San Francisco office has five OnAir 2000 desks already in use at its headquarters on Mariposa Street. One of the OnAir 2000s currently serves as the station’s on-air desk, while the other four are set up in production studios that—like the on-air room—have recently been renovated as part of KQED’s ongoing conversion to an all-digital format.
Located across the street from the California State Capitol building, the Sacramento bureau occupies the ground floor of a former bank, the vault of which has now been converted into a control room where the OnAir 500 Modulo will reside.
