NBC Studio Tour at Rockefeller Center, NYC
Since 1933, NBC has offered this historic behind the scenes tour that takes you through the halls and into the studios of NBC's New York operations located in Rockefeller Center. An NBC Page will be your guide to the world of the Peacock Network.
The first stop on this 70-minute tour is the NBC Sharp HDTV Theatre, where you will learn about NBC's early days in radio. Your NBC Page will tell you about some of the network's early sound effect techniques and NBC's transition into television. Then NBC Today Show's Matt Lauer (on video) take you down memory lane to show how NBC came to be and where we are now. The tour gives you the opportunity to enter and visit some of our most famous studios, perhaps the Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or The Dr. Oz Show locations. Afterwards you might have the chance to star in your own news and weather show!
Some NBC Pages have gone on to become famous entertainment personalities, including Willard Scott, Ted Koppel, Regis Philbin, Steve Allen, Marcy Carsey, Kate Jackson, Michael Eisner, and Dave Garroway.
