Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation announced it officially opened its new production and broadcast studios at its location in downtown Austin, TX. The studios feature professional video, audio, and lighting equipment, as well as an editing studio with the latest tools and software.

The broadcast studio can be used to connect with local media outlets across the state. TPPF can accommodate live interviews through Zoom, Skype, Teams or other streaming apps, or recorded “live to tape” segments to be aired later.

The production studio features three “stages” that can be used for various backgrounds and looks, including a blue/white/green screen for choosing any backdrop. TPPF uses it to film and record podcasts, interviews, social media reels, speeches, live streams, and other content from the studio.

“We are excited to have this new capability to create innovative, educational, and entertaining video and audio products that will help us educate Texans on all the most important issues,” said TPPF Chief Communications Officer Brian Phillips. “In particular, the broadcast studio will help connect local media outlets with our experts to go behind the scenes of the policy debates happening in Austin during the legislative session. If they can’t come to Austin, then we can come to them.”
