Music Choice Makes the Break From Its Current NYC Office to State-of-the-Art Broadcast Studios

The Spacious New Quarters, Located at 328 West 34th Street, Signal the Expansion of the Multi-Platform Music Choice Network

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 30, 2005 -- Music Choice, the premier music network that produces, programs, and distributes music content for millions of music fans nationwide, announced today that they have expanded and relocated to 328 West 34th Street (17 Penn Plaza). Music Choice outgrew its existing NYC space in record time. The new state-of-the-art broadcast studios are needed for the production of exclusive Music Choice shows such as Tha' Corner, Fresh Crops, and the Rock Show, filming artist performances and interviews, and programming music videos and audio tracks for the Music Choice network.

Music Choice contemplated doubling the size of its current offices, but quickly realized that it needed three times the amount of its existing space to accommodate its growth. With hundreds of artists coming by the Music Choice studios every year, Music Choice needed to expand its broadcast studios to accommodate the increasing volume of artists. The new state-of-the-art broadcast studios will allow the network to produce high-quality content for multiple platforms.

"This move represents an important milestone for Music Choice as we continue our evolution from an audio music network on digital cable and satellite television, to an all-inclusive video and audio music network that reaches millions of consumers through their TVs, PCs, and cell phones," says David Del Beccaro, President and CEO of Music Choice.
