A year-long project to enhance Temple’s Annenberg Hall began with the installation of a news ticker above the building’s front entrance along 13th street. The ticker will feature up-to-the-minute news streaming from Philadelphia’s KYW Newsradio.
Installment of the news ticker is the first step in Annenberg’s enhancement project that will include a new outdoor seating area, new furniture throughout the building, increased office space for faculty, and new hallway ceilings.
“The exterior of the building is rather generic otherwise, but this will make it clear that news and public-affairs communication are at the heart of what we do,” School of Media and Communication Dean, David Boardman said.
The 40 feet long and 2 feet tall ticker will also be used for important information and announcements from Temple and the School of Media and Communication.
