About Rockefeller Center
The first stop on the tour was the NBC History Theatre, where you learned about NBC's early days in radio. Your NBC Page shared the history of the network's early sound effect techniques and NBC's transition into television. It was exciting to be in Studio 8H where Saturday Niight Live is filmed....:) Then it was Katie Couric and Matt Lauer (on video) taking you down memory lane to show you where NBC has been and where we are today.
The tour gives you the opportunity to enter and visit some of our most famous studios, including:
- Studio 3C - Home of NBC Nightly News
- Studio 3B - Home of Dateline
- Studio 3K - Home of NBC Sports
- Studio 6A - Home of Late Night with Conan O'Brien
- Studio 8H - Home of Saturday Night Live
Unfortunately,, I was not allowed to take pictures inside the Studio,once the tour began..-(
People also line up outside the NBC Studio for a chance to be "on camera" on the Today Show.
Radio City Music Hall
Radio City Music Hall hosts many dazzling (annual Christmas and Easter shows) and musical events. It is the home of the famous Rockettes.
This was a great tour! Our guide had theatrical presence and charisma.
