WNIT staffers are no doubt pretty thrilled about their new digs in South Bend, Ind.,considering their old offices were in “a cluster of manufactured homes,” points out local CBS affiliate WSBT. The Michiana (that’s Michigan/Indiana, to you non-Midwesterners) pubcaster is moving into WSBT’s former studios, complete with two massive screens broadcasting to the street from a glass corner of the building. WNIT President Mary Pruess said, “It’s the kind of public television station this region deserves, a true community resource.” The station is going from 8,500 square feet to 30,000. Schurz Communications, which owns WSBT and the South Bend Tribune, donated the property and some equipment.
