Public invited to ribbon cutting, tours of WDUN's new Downtown Gainesville Studio

By AccessWDUN Staff

WDUN is inviting the public to celebrate the opening of its new Downtown Gainesville Studio on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting, tours and more.

The announcement comes as WDUN's parent company, Jacobs Media Corp., celebrates its 75th year in business.

The long-running radio station and local news operation previously announced it would shift its broadcast operations to the first floor of the Gainesville Renaissance building on the Gainesville Square. The station's live shows, including "Mornings on Maine Street," “The Martha Zoller Show,” “Drive at 5,” “Home Matters” and “Home Grown" will all be broadcast from the new location. 

Mornings on Maine Street kicked off operations at the new studio early Monday morning.

"It's great to be downtown," Bill Maine, executive vice president and general manager of Jacobs Media Corp. said. "I love looking out the window and watching the square come to life each morning. People wave as they walk or drive by. From a 'what if' conversation at breakfast with Jay and Sandy one Friday morning after the show to this incredible studio, it's just amazing. We're really looking forward to being a part of all the activities in downtown and Midland including the First Friday and Blue Sky Concert series."

The new studio is located at 106 Spring Street, Suite 130, Gainesville, GA 30501.

The celebration will run from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17. A ribbon cutting will then be held at 1:30 p.m. 

The event will feature 75th Anniversary treats, studio tours, and a digital guestbook. The public is invited to attend.
