N.Y. Public Broadcasters Centralize Master Control

SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Nine New York State public television stations have joined forces to contain operating costs, manage technological change, and free themselves from the pressure to conduct capital campaigns.

The nine stations have joined CentralCast LLC, an organization established to provide centralized master control operations at its Joint Master Control Facility (JMCF) located within WCNY-TV/FM’s new Broadcast and Education Center in Syracuse. N.Y. CentralCast member stations include: WNET/New York, WLIW/Long Island, WNED/Buffalo, WXXI/ Rochester, WSKG/Binghamton, WPBS/Watertown, WMHT/Albany, WCFE/Plattsburgh, and WCNY/Syracuse. The JMCF will occupy approximately 3,500 square feet of the 57,000 square-foot building, which cost $20 million to build.
