Westwood One is moving its Dallas studios and offices to another location in the market.
Two things sparked the decision. The lease on Westwood One’s Dallas studios and offices on Montfort Drive runs out in the middle of this year. And subtenant Radio Disney has left the building.
Westwood One will build out broadcast facilities at its TM Studios location on Academy Lane in Dallas, and will move programming, production and affiliate sales there.
Back-office functions, like traffic and affiliate service/affidavit management will be relocated to an existing Cumulus facility in nearby Arlington, Texas, according to a spokeswoman.
Other than some duplicated facility support positions, there will be no other changes to staffing related to the relocations, according to WWO.
