WVUE Fox 8 at Benson Tower

As the area around the Mercedes-Benz Superdome continues to be transformed, Fox 8 WVUE TV’s satellite studio in Benson Tower was added just as the Saints kicked off the 2012 football season. Occupying the 2nd floor corner of Benson Tower, the studio is just one more component that is reshaping an underused area post-Katrina into a bustling entertainment district. The new 5,800 square foot studio allows Fox 8 to broadcast newscasts and special events with the fantastic backdrop of Champions Square and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the background. As part of the build-out, Woodward ran fiber optics cable from the studio to the Superdome to offer Fox 8 broadcasting capabilities for gameday events in the dome. Woodward served as the general contractor on the project, and previously completed the design build renovation of Benson Tower, a LEED Certified project.
