ABC 13 WSET is a television broadcasting operation with facilities in Lynchburg, Danville, and Roanoke. Most people think of TV as a simple piece of home electronic equipment they turn on that provides news, information and entertainment. It is that and much more. It's a communication device that changed the world. It's a communication device through which we watch the world change. It's fun to watch TV and it's fun to work in broadcast television.
Interest in visiting television operations has grown over the past several years. It has been our policy to provide opportunities for educationally oriented groups to visit ABC 13. Because we are a television broadcasting business, corporate policy, liability, legal issues and other factors limit us to these types of visits. We provide visits only at our Lynchburg Studio facilities. We allow groups to visit the studio and control room, and when feasible, watch a newscast. Groups that wish to visit must meet the following guidelines:
The Visit Request Form must be submitted 15 business days in advance.
Groups will be educational in nature with a study focus on broadcasting, media or business. School classes, clubs or programs, Scouts, colleges, Chambers of Commerce, etc. are acceptable types of groups.
Visitors must be in the 6th grade or older.
The group will consist of no more than 25 participants.
If the group consists of young people, that number will include chaperones. This will include all persons visiting the station in the particular group. Our facility cannot accommodate groups larger than 25 people.
Group must be able to schedule the visit on the 2nd or 4th Thursday of the month.
If your group meets these guidelines, fill out the form below.
