Beasley Media Group | Boston MA

When Beasley Media Group acquired Boston sports radio station 98.5 FM “The Sports Hub,” they needed a fast-track solution for a new studio that would support both on-air and video capabilities – all while ensuring that Boston’s number 1 sports radio station stays on the air 24/7. To accomplish this feat, Beasley turned to V Three Studios to spearhead the transformation of “The Sports Hub” into a state-of-the-art multi-disciplinary studio that would support various formats of content creation, from radio to television to podcasts.

V3’s knowledge in sound isolation, combined with their experience in renovating existing radio studios to support both radio and TV broadcasting, made them a natural choice for this project. The design for the new facility includes a 1,100-square-foot core broadcasting studio, flanked by two radio control rooms which support both the radio and video functionalities. A custom-built studio desk was installed with several bordering video monitors for branding and content, to be utilized for both video and radio operations. New, acoustic windows sourced from a local vendor were installed between an open seating area and the new studio for visitor viewing, as well as between each control room and the studio for operations. Mechanical black out shades from Mecho were installed to block the natural light from the exterior of the building into the studio for control during operations. The shades are seamlessly integrated into the interior design of the studio so they disappear with the rest of the studio back drop.
