The home of the “CBS Evening News,” and “CBS This Morning" is also a converted milk processing plant.
Sheffield Farms Company sold the building and property to CBS in 1952. The network spent $14.5 million dollars to create what was then the largest and most advanced radio and television facility in the world.
In the early 1980s, CBS added 176,400 square feet to the 500,000 square foot building as part of a $100 million upgrade.
In May 2001, a crew from "48 Hours" went into the dank basement of the Broadcast Center in search of a location for a shoot. They found grain chutes and a cow hoof left over from the building's original purpose.
The facility has undergone several upgrades and renovations since then, the most recent being the addition of a newroom and studio for "CBS This Morning."
The CBS Broadcast Center is the headquarters for CBS News, CBS Sports and the distribution center for the entire CBS network.
