The Charlotte EpiCentre, The Epicenter Of Media At The 2012 DNC

Here in Charlotte, North Carolina, one location has become a media hub during the Democratic National Convention. The Charlotte EpiCentre, an outdoor mall featuring restaurants, nightclubs and shops, is playing host to some very high profile media outlets.

The CNN Grill has taken over what used to be a Mexican cantina. Upstairs on the third floor, Bloomberg has converted a Gold’s Gym into the Bloomberg Link, where it is hosting panels, cocktail sessions and broadcasting “Street Smart” as well as Charlie Rose’s PBS program. C-SPAN is presenting an exhibit at the mall for visitors.

It is MSNBC however that has the biggest presence. The cable channel has an enormous set in the central courtyard of the EpiCentre, and has signage inside and outside the entire place. The network also took over a restaurant and converted into an “MSNBC fan experience” that is open to the general public (more on that later this week).

All of the networks are within a few hundred feet of one another, and within a stone’s throw of the Time Warner Cable Arena, where the convention is being held.

Plenty of pictures, after the jump.
