Comcast has decided to build a multimillion-dollar TV studio and production studio in Houston.
The facility in downtown Houston will house operations for Comcast SportsNet Houston, a partnership between basketball’s Rockets, baseball’s Astros and the NBC Sports Group.
The announcement was made by Houston Mayor Annise Parker and was reported by CultureMap.
That report quotes Matt Hutchings, Comcast SportsNet Houston’s president and general manager, saying that the group wanted to return to the roots of regional sports coverage, with a "boots on the ground" approach for increased investment in the local community.
The studio will create 125 media and technology jobs in downtown Houston.
