Television company ITV Cymru Wales announced today it is planning to move its headquarters from Culverhouse Cross to the heard of Cardiff Bay.
The new studio will be next to the National Assembly building and should be completed by June next year.
The premises will house all of ITV Cymru Wales’ news, programmes and production facilities and around 110 staff, including a bespoke HD studio plus editing and production facilities.
Phil Henfrey, head of news and programmes at the channel, said: “This is a significant investment that will deliver considerable benefits for colleagues and for ITV viewer in Wales.
“It puts our journalists and production teams exactly where they should be: at the heart of things, rubbing shoulders with the key newsmakers and decision makers of Wales.
“It will also be a great place to work. This is one of the landmark, modern buildings in Wales with brilliant transport links and fantastic facilities for colleagues on our doorstep.
“There’s sure to be a little sadness at moving on from our current base at Culverhouse Cross. We’ve produced some memorable programmes from here – but there is no doubt that the building itself has seen better days.”
