Studio Tour

101.5 LITE FM broadcasts from a studio and office complex in North Miami-Dade County, a few blocks from our transmitter site near the Dade-Broward county line. 

While we share the building with our sister stations, 102.7 The Beach, 104.3 The Shark and 790 The Ticket, LITE FM maintains three dedicated state-of-the-art digital studios, from which you hear our music, news, commercial messages and community affairs programming 24 hours a day.

Studio 'G'. The LITE FM main studio, where the personalities broadcast most of the day. 

Studio 'G'. Above the audio control console in the center of the counter, you'll see three computer screens. The one on the far left gives us e-mail, texting and social media access, the center one is our news and weather computer, and the one on the right is a touch-sensitive screen which controls all the songs, jingles, commercials and other programming material you hear on 101.5 LITE FM. 

In the cabinet to the right of the announcer are the controls for our transmitters, our studio intercom, CD players (used for backup in the event of a computer glitch) and a digital audio recorder. The window on the far wall looks into Studio 'B'.

Studio 'B'. This studio is used for commercial production and community affairs programming. It's also fully equipped as a backup control room, in the event Studio 'G' requires maintenance. 

TV monitors on the back wall allow us to monitor breaking news and weather. The computer on the far left of the counter feeds us news and weather, the center one is for e-mail, texting and social media access, and the screens toward the right are for digital audio production.

Studio 'Z'. The view as you enter our digital production suite. It's where our Production Director, Doug Turkel, creates some of South Florida's most innovative and effective radio marketing campaigns.

Studio 'Z'. Now you can start to understand why it's 'Studio Z'; note the funky zebra theme on the walls! 

At the heart of the studio is a digital mixing console. To the left is the Pro Tools digital editor. To the right of the console is our digital audio storage computer, and in the cabinet you'll find other digital recording gear, studio intercom and CD players. At the far right is a computer for e-mail, texting and social media access.

Studio 'Z'. The view from the announcers' positions, looking across the console. Partially visible in the back corner is a reel-to-reel tape deck (1985 vintage), a nod to radio's analog heritage, used occasionally to access archive material. (And dig that plush zebra-delic wall!)
