Radio and Television Broadcast Studios

Dartmouth has its own broadcast-quality radio and television studios, which are used primarily by members of the news media to conduct remote or in-person interviews with Dartmouth experts.

Our studio facilities are available Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and are managed by Office of Public Affairs staff members. Depending on staff availability, studios may also be booked after hours for Dartmouth-affiliated interviews.

Dartmouth does not charge a studio fee for interviews with sources affiliated with the College. If you need assistance identifying a Dartmouth expert, please contact the Office of Public Affairs.

Depending on availability, the studios may also be used by interviewees not affiliated with Dartmouth. Fees of $150/hour for the radio studio and $500/hour for the TV studio apply.
