CTN Studios moved into our new state-of-the-art facility on the campus of the Coon Rapids City Center in November of 2001. The building is over 8,000 square feet and boasts: two studios with a central control room, master control, a voice-over room, tape storage room, four edit suites, and a generous office area. We now have a two stall garage to protect our mobile production truck from the elements and also network with it in order to use it as an additional edit suite.
In 2007 the station purchased a second larger production truck. The older equipment from the smaller truck was moved into the new larger truck while the studio control room equipment was moved into the smaller truck. This allowed for the most efficient use of resources as now the "control room truck" can roll out to cover events when the studio is not in use! On several occasions both trucks are covering events on the same day!
In 2011 the new larger truck was re-equiped with HD technology for higher quality productions and additional future revenue generation capabilities.
In our short history, we have won more than 30 regional and national awards. CTN is committed to bringing our viewers the best in neighborhood television through continuing to upgrade our equipment and always striving to keep our programming up-to-date, fresh and with our viewers in mind.
