National Press Club

Broadcast Center and Studio Spaces on the 4th Floor

The National Press Club Broadcast Operations Center is a full-service video production studio that provides a convenient location for media resources, production services, global transmission access, webcasting solutions, studio and editing services. In addition, multiple fiber lines distribute audio and video between the conference rooms on the main floor of the National Press Club to major networks.

The space is shared by the National Press Club Archives - home to our collection of documents, audio, video and other historic items - which chronicles the Club's more than 100 year history.
