The site of the proposed museum is a vacant bank building owned by RIDC at Keystone Commons in Turtle Creek, the site of a former Westinghouse plant which housed the original KDKA Radio studio.
“Our efforts to revitalize old industrial properties always include components that connect us to our history, even as we move the properties toward the future,” said Timothy White, senior vice president of business development and strategy for RIDC. “The National Museum of Broadcasting would be a welcome addition to the campus George Westinghouse built: Keystone Commons. We look forward to working with Sen. Costa and the museum’s leadership as they seek to realize their vision.”
