A fresh coat of paint for our new studio

David Booth, painting

Thanks to the continued work of our construction crew – and the continued support of our donors! – the Tom and Florence Busch Digital Studios keeps inching closer to reality.

As the photos show, our latest update regards paint. Coats of the white stuff are going up, room by room.

The images here show carpenter David Booth carefully applying joint compound on the drywall seams in what will become our future newsroom – and then spraying the paint itself in a space that will be designated, in our new studios, for storage. (Note the special, spring-loaded metal stilts that David used to help him reach the ceiling!)

In the immediate future, work on our digital studios will turn towards the sub-floor, the studios’ electrical systems, and, before too long, the installation of our actual broadcast equipment.

We are currently working as hard as we can to pursue further funding sources for the studios’ completion; as we describe here, we’re nearly two-thirds of the way to our final funding goal. We ask for your prayers for these ongoing efforts, and as always, you can learn more – and donate yourself, if you choose – by visiting our digital studios page. Thanks so much!
