How should I dress?
Dress to Impress: We ask all of our on-air guests to wear appropriate clothing for their television appearance. Jewel tone colored clothing looks great on TV. Bright red, emerald green, sapphire blue, etc. Ladies are urged to wear clothing such as blouses, dress pants, dresses and blazers and men are asked to also wear bright solid colors, button-down dress shirts and neutral pants. Intricate patterns do not photograph well, solids look best. Sunglasses, hats, clothing with logos, cut off shorts, casual tank tops and flip flops are prohibited. This is a working television studio and proper foot coverings is required for safety reasons.
If you are part of a theatre group and have special costumes, please alert the producers before your arrival. If you are part of a group that has an event specific tee-shirt we welcome you to show off your threads in support of your upcoming event.
