Background

The studio is primarily used for productions of ABC News, a division of the broadcast-television network ABC. The studio is owned by The Walt Disney Company, a media and entertainment conglomerate, which also owns ABC.

It was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering, Disney's design and development arm. The original concept for the studio was conceived by Harry Grossman. His plan called for the studio to broadcast many shows twenty-four hours a day for both Disney-owned and non-Disney programs.

When GMA is not on the air, the studios have been used regularly to produce programming for other companies including:

The core management staff has remained largely unchanged since the studios opening in 1999..

The studio's site is the former National Theater.
