Columbia Square Exterior
CBS' Columbia Square was home to KNX
from 1938 to 2005. Located on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, it was constructed mostly of heavy reinforced poured concrete, including many of the interior walls. This was for state-of-the-art style as well as earthquake resistance, as the area had suffered a serious quake in 1933. KCBS-TV (Ch 2) and KCAL-TV (Ch 9) will be moving from Columbia Square in 2007.
