Audience Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in being an audience member for Twin Cities Live.
Please note: Occasionally things pop up that require us to cancel an audience date. In those cases an email will be sent as soon as we know to advise you that you will need to reschedule.

To ensure that all of our audience members have the very best experience, there are a few guidelines that you’ll be asked to follow:

Parking
Parking is free in our back lot off of Territorial Road (Parking Lot C) – simply follow the Twin Cities Live parking signs.

Audience Entrance
The Audience Entrance is on the northwest side of the building – watch for the signs to direct you. Upon entering our studios, you may be subjected to a brief security search to ensure the safety of our staff and audience.

Time Frame
Doors do not open before 2:15 PM. (There is no need to arrive earlier as it has no effect on which seat you get.)
No one will be admitted past 2:45 PM. We air live at 3 PM – 4:30 PM.
You can expect to be out of the studio at approximately 4:45 PM.

Studio Policy
Recording devices, digital equipment, backpacks, and sharp objects of any kind are not permitted inside the studio. Please do not bring any valuables with you to the station, as we do not have a secure storage area. Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc. cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen items. Small purses, cameras, and cell phones are allowed – however, we ask that all phones are turned off during the show. Photos are not allowed while the show is on air. There will be time for photos afterwards.

Age Restrictions
All audience members must be 18 years of age or older. A valid photo ID is required.

Dress Code
You’ll be on TV, so remember to dress the part! Please think business casual attire. White clothing and busy patterns don’t look good on camera, so please leave those at home. We want to see your smiling faces, so no hats! Visible logos, especially on a shirt, are a no-no as well.

Seating
Audience seating is at the discretion of the production staff. We’ll do our best to keep your party together, but due to seating accommodations, your party may be split up. We reserve the right to deny admission to anyone at any time for any reason, and such right shall be at the sole discretion of Hubbard Broadcasting, Inc.

Twin Cities Live is handicap accessible. If you have any special requests or needs that we need to be aware of (such as difficulty walking up steps) be sure to let us know when you check in. We will try to accommodate you!

The Twin Cities Live studio is located in the:
5 EYEWITNESS NEWS/KSTP-TV building
