University Center Activities & Events (ucae)

Live from Duke Studio

Duke University provides technical support in its radio and television studio facilities for on-campus broadcast television and radio interviews with faculty experts and administrators. These facilities are conveniently located in the Bryan Center and allow our professors to share their expertise with local and national audiences, in live or pre-taped interviews.


While we make every effort to accommodate broadcast interview requests, we are not staffed as an "around-the-clock" service. Please try to schedule interviews as far ahead as possible.  Normal business hours for live production are 7AM-7PM.

Studio Directions
For radio and television interviews at Duke Studio, park in Parking Garage IV next to the Bryan Center. Enter the Bryan Center through the main entrance off the traffic circle. Entering the top level (Level Three), bear right past the information desk to the elevator in the far corner of the lobby (next to the restrooms). Take the elevator down to Level One. Walk straight ahead. The hallway will make a 90 degree turn leading you to Duke Media Services (Room 0052).  For assistance, call the main studio number at (919) 660-1740.
