The Times Square Alliance is proud to continue to work to improve and promote Times Square, so that it retains the creativity, energy and edge that have made it an icon for entertainment, culture and urban life for over a century.
Perhaps almost as iconic as the advertising building at One Times Square is the swirling news ticker designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. Above the headquarters for Times Square Studios are nine ribbons of LED lights used for sports, national and local news. Seven of the ribbons work together as a cutting-edge TV screen that looks like something out of Alice in Wonderland.
The original concept for Times Square Studios came from Harry Grossman who imagined the studio as a twenty-four-hour broadcasting house for both Disney and non-Disney productions. Today the studio mostly produces shows from ABC news and ESPN, although they have produced a number of shows from other outlets. Watch the video below to see what it's like to be an audience for one of the most popular shows: Good Morning America.
