BETHESDA, Md. - FOX 5 is excited to announce that we will be moving our news headquarters to Bethesda, Maryland.
WTTG-TV and WDCA-TV have entered into an agreement to pursue a lease at 7272 Wisconsin Ave., which is about 2 miles from our current location at 5151 Wisconsin Ave. in Friendship Heights where we have been located since 1966.
Our operation will be moving into the Carr Properties Apex building, a new and stunning high-tech complex, which will no doubt help to cement FOX 5's position as the DMV's news leader for decades to come.
"We are thrilled to move our facilities to Montgomery County, Maryland into what will be a grade A complex developed by Carr Properties and we thank the state of Maryland and Montgomery County for making this possible. This will be a state-of-the-art facility that will keep us in the heart of the Washington, D.C. metro area and allow us to better serve our community," FOX 5 Vice President and General Manager Patrick Paolini said.
"Fox Television's relocation to Maryland is further proof that more and more great companies are recognizing the tremendous value and advantages of doing business here," said Gov. Larry Hogan. "This move, which brings approximately 200 employees into the state, is a win for our state and for Montgomery County as we continue to attract growing companies like Fox."
The massive complex will take a few years to build and plans are underway to map out our future newsroom. FOX 5's move-in date is slated for June of 2021, but during that time we will continue to be the only station to turn to no matter if you live in Maryland, DC or Virginia.
