WYES breaks ground for its $7 million new building
WYES in New Orleans finally broke ground for a new headquarters Wednesday (June 22), nearly 20 years after General Manager Randy Feldman had first hoped to do so. "WYES staffers aren’t likely to miss the old building, an unheated cave with shaky air conditioning and lots of exposed wiring," the Times-Picayune notes. Phase one is a new 20,000-square-foot, $7 million new building right behind the old; that should be done by March 2012. Phase two, to raze the original building, doesn't yet have a start date.
