KHQ on the Glendale Media Center roof

Rob Curry, Executive Producer – KHQ-TV:

“Between January 26th and February 2nd 2015 KHQ-TV was in Glendale covering the Super Bowl. Our experience with Glendale 11 in general and staff in particular was nothing short of spectacular. We only had about 1 week to find liveshot locations, lodging, and get our crews to Glendale to cover the Seahawks in Super Bowl 40. Glendale 11 was extremely accommodating to our last-minute schedule, staff was always available to answer our questions and the live background was incredible. Our photographers and satellite truck operators were also blown away with the design of the building and thought put into what works best when it comes to the business of live television. The group at Glendale 11 made what could have been a chaotic and stressful experience, a smooth operation that the viewers in Spokane, WA enjoyed and our crews and management at the station deeply appreciated.”

Pete Tenney, Senior Producer Bleacher Report – Turner Sports:

“Our video productions at Super Bowl XLIX came together thanks to staff at the Glendale Channel 11 facilities. They made the process calm and easy for our crew, and the views overlooking University of Phoenix Stadium were second to none. NFL players joined us on set at the balcony, and they were very pleased with the facilities too. We thank the staff for their great communication and coordination … I will continue to highly recommend the Glendale Channel 11 facilities, and I expect our company will work with them again during a future major event.”


David Wilke, Producer – CNN Sports:

“The Glendale Media Center provided us with everything we needed in a production facility, all with an unbelievable shot of the stadium across the street. And the best part was the staff, which couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. They really want to work with you.”


Sherry Henry, Director – Arizona Office of Tourism:

“Congratulations on making the PRO 100 List for being among the 100 most popular profiles on the Production HUB website. The Glendale Media Center (GMC) did a fantastic job hosting media for Super Bowl 49.

Jason Mcilquham - Producer/Director - Cox Media:

I wanted to send a letter of thanks for the excellent service your facility provided during our recent shoot at the Glendale Media Center.

When I first walked into the Glendale Media Center, my first impression was: “Wow, this is how a studio should be set up.” Everything from the green room to the studios was clean, well organized and contained top- notch equipment. Such a professional space helped foster a positive working enviroment for the cast and crew. It also created a positive impression for my client.

In short, the Glendale Media Center helped make our commercial a great success. The Glendale Media Center provided us with the two main things you hope for in a studio location: top-notch equipment, and a friendly professional staff. I couldn’t recommend your facility more highly. Again, thank you.

Working with the Glendale Media Center to record a new TV commercial was an absolute pleasure. The facility is convenient and easy , including a turn-key set that we used to record one spot as well as a balcony level used to record a second spot. The crew made a huge impact on our ability to complete our shoot in a timely manner and was attentive to our needs through the entire day. We look forward to continuing to work with the Glendale Media Center on future productions.

Glendale Media Center has been the perfect venue for our studio needs. The facilities and accommodations always come through and the price is very reasonable. We have filmed many programs at GMC and we have never been disappointed. Highly recommended!

Glendale Media Center Client - Jasinksi Direct

Tim Jasinski, Jasinski Direct

"For more than 20 years, I’ve produced infomercials all over the country. And in all that time, I’ve never come across a better equipped studio or a more professional staff. Not to mention a better value. Their studio space, cameras, control room, green room, everything is top-of-the-line and meticulously maintained. It’s a facility that not only functions extremely well but also presents well when clients come on set. Very impressive!"


Gary Stafford, Independent Film Producer –
Midnight Sun Films LLC:

“Studio A has everything a production company needs in order to produce a top-notch spot. There is plenty of room, every kind of lighting configuration you can imagine and everything you will need for a video, film or still production. The lighting grid, rolling lights, cycs, props, sets and then some... all you need to add into the equation is your project. The studio is state-of-the-art and spotless I might add. But as great as the physical and technological tools are, it really is the great staff that truly makes the difference. There is no weak link.”


Donald Fair – FOX News Channel:

“Please accept this note of thanks on behalf of the entire Fox News Channel team that worked on covering the recent Super Bowl in Glendale. While some say it was the best game ever, I would say that the situation where Fox News Channel found itself was also the best ever. The Glendale Media Center, as well as the staff, were top notch. From all of us at Fox News Channel, we wish you luck in the future and hope we can find another reason to duplicate the situation we had in Glendale.”


Sean McLaughlin, Chief Meteorologist/Anchor –
KPHO-TV and former MSNBC Meteorologist:

“I’ve worked inside one of the most iconic broadcast buildings in the world, and I hate to say it… but technically speaking, it couldn’t hold a candle to what the Glendale Media Center can offer you. It’s the next generation of broadcasting... but it’s here right now.”

“Whether it’s the Super Bowl, BCS Championship or big-time rock concert, you have to check out the Glendale Media Center. From stand-up sites to full blown studio production, it has it all.”


Karen Frye, host of Girlfriends Talk Sports:

“Everytime we get a chance to shoot our sports show at the Glendale Studios,  we know we’re going to be very productive on that day.  The staff is professional and top notch when it comes to knowing and doing everything needed to helping us put a quality product on the air. Their studios are state of the art, and had everything we needed from graphics to staffing."
