COUNCILMEMBER RYU STATEMENT ON HISTORIC-CULTURAL LANDMARK STATUS FOR CBS TELEVISION CITY

 

Los Angeles -- Today, City Council approved a report from the City Council Planning and Land Use Management Committee to designate the CBS Television City Studios building at 7800-7860 West Beverly Boulevard as a Historic-Cultural Landmark. Councilmember Ryu released the following statement:

“Today, we were able to preserve a piece of Los Angeles history and a vital part of our local economy,” Councilmember Ryu said. “CBS Television City doesn’t just house a storied past, but working sound stages that are crucial to our local economy.”

“The most recent figures show sound stage occupancy rate at around 96 percent,” Councilmember Ryu said. “Keeping Television City’s sound stages intact keeps Los Angeles jobs intact. This is an example of how saving Los Angeles’ history secures Los Angeles’ future. Now, we can ensure the same sound stages which once held I Love Lucy and The Carol Burnett Show will keep serving the film and television industry for years to come.”
