New KPCC Radio Station Construction Update in Pasadena

The KPCC new radio station under construction showing some major progress since I last covered it back in June 2009

It’s been about 6 months since I last covered KPCC’s new radio station under construction at 474 S. Raymond Ave. just a bit south of Downtown Pasadena. Since that time, what used to be a hole in the ground has sprouted a new building that will eventually be part of a new state-of-the-art $27 million broadcast center for the highly regarded 89.3 KPCC public radio station.

The radio station is currently based on the campus of Pasadena City College (PCC) and will relocate to this brand new facility (part of it adaptive-reuse of an older structure) when it is completed next year.

    So that’s what’s going up there…I wondered. It doesn’t look too bad.

  2. Looks like its slow growth with that station. I wood have preferred it to stay on or adjacent to the campus.

    Now, they are more likely to be KPCC in name only.
