As the tragedy in Ferguson unfolded, national and international media converged on St. Louis. Reporters and program hosts needed a place from which to broadcast — and it needed to be customizable, secure, and able to broadcast live to stations all over the world. Just a few weeks after its official opening, Studio 17 became that place.

Our broadcast team facilitated reporting by outlets including MSNBC, FOX, and CNN. We went live to New York, to Europe, to Asia. Because of Studio 17’s capabilities, reporters could stay on the ground in St. Louis while sending their stories across the globe. Our short documentary “Finding Ferguson” tells the story.
