WSRE is the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member Public television station for the Pensacola, Florida viewing area. The station has been broadcasting since 1967, and is owned by Pensacola State College. The station's production and development facilities are located at the Kugelman Center for Telecommunications on the Pensacola State main campus. Its transmitter is located near Robertsdale, Alabama.
The station has recently gone under very significant growth, with the dedication of the new Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio, and numerous equipment and technical upgrades.
WSRE is home to three fully equipped television studios. The largest being WSRE's Studio A, otherwise known as the Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio. The Jean & Paul Amos Performance is an 18,000 sq ft (1,700 m2) fully featured television soundstage offering 500 seats of stadium seating, which is retractable to allow for more soundstage space. Studio B also offers all of the technical capability of Studio A, with more moderate floor space designed for live or pre-recorded programming without a live audience. Most of the station's local programming is produced in Studio B. Studio C is a much smaller studio and is almost exclusively used for television programs and segments designed for satellite uplinks. MSNBC's Scarborough Country (now known as Morning Joe) was frequently produced in Studio C when former Representative Joe Scarborough was in Pensacola.
