GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — WOOD TV8 is excited to announce it has entered into a one-of-a-kind partnership with Grand Rapids Art Museum to form the GRAM WOOD TV Media Arts Center.
The station has reached a long-term agreement with GRAM for a permanent studio location overlooking Rosa Parks Circle in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids.
Every year during ArtPrize, WOOD TV8 broadcasts almost 150 hours from the “Today Show”-type studio. Because of the new agreement, it will be possible to broadcast year-round.
WOOD TV8’s main studio will remain in Heritage Hill, just east of the downtown area.
GRAM WOOD TV Media Arts Center is tied to a comprehensive plan that will be announced in late April to expand local engagement across West Michigan. Details will be announced on 24 Hour News 8 and woodtv.com at a later date.
