WOWT Channel 6 Tour Guidelines.

Thank-you for your interest in a tour of the WOWT Channel 6 Television Station! Due to limitations with the size of our facilities, necessary staffing arrangements, and because we are a 24-hour active, operating station, there are some specific guidelines we must adhere to when planning tours. Here are the guidelines used for arranging a tour:

The ideal-sized tour group is four to six people. Groups may not exceed more than 10 people. We are not able to accommodate groups totaling more than ten. If the tour group is young people with chaperones, the total number of young people and chaperones must not exceed ten. Everyone in a tour group must be age thirteen or older. We are not able to accommodate younger visitors. Tours are available to any interested parties, not just organizations and clubs.

We are usually able to schedule two station tours each month. A tour may be arranged for a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, between the hours of 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tours typically take 45 to 60 minutes to complete. If you wish to view a live newscast, it might be possible to schedule your tour during the Midday news, requiring your tour to begin at 11:00 a.m.

We must receive tour requests in writing, at least three weeks prior to the requested tour date. You may mail, fax, or e-mail your tour request. Mail your tour request to: Station Tours, WOWT Channel 6, 3501 Farnam Street, Omaha, Nebraska, 68131. Or, fax your tour request to: 402-233-7880. Or, e-mail your tour request to: community@wowt.com.

In your tour request, please include a contact person’s name, address and phone number; the total number in your group; age(s) of your group members; and the days and times that you prefer. So that we may try to tailor the tour to better meet your needs, please tell us the general things that you/your group members hope to learn during the tour—for example--broadcast careers, or current technology, or television advertising, and so on. We do not accept requests for tours over the phone.

Thank-you again for your interest in WOWT Channel 6. We look forward to hearing from you.
