The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio
The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio is a 10,000 square foot television studio which can accommodate a variety of events. Located on the west side of the WSRE Kugelman Center for Telecommunications on the Pensacola State College campus and across the street from Pensacola International Airport, the studio can be used as a soundstage, a performance venue and as a location for large public or private events. In addition to WSRE's own local/national television productions, the Amos has hosted numerous concerts, lectures, fashion shows, music recitals, dance recitals, pageants and plays since it opened in 2005. WSRE works with non-profits and other organizations to produce local and regional cultural productions for broadcast on WSRE from the Amos Studio, as well as launch new talent to be aired regionally and nationally through PBS, increasing organization exposure. Community organizations, businesses and churches have successfully utilized the space, layout and convenient location offered by the Amos Studio.
The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio was built to support the mission of WSRE, serving as a community resource and providing valuable services and educational outreach to the citizens of the Gulf Coast community. Funding for the studio's construction came from many sources including major donors, matching dollars from the state legislature, and the lead gift of $500,000 to the FutureVision Capital Campaign from former Northwest Florida residents Jean and Paul Amos.
Paul Amos was best known as a co-founder of Aflac, the world’s largest supplemental insurance company. He and his wife Jean had had resided in Columbus, Ga.; however, they first met during their formative years living in Milton, Fla. and were married 65 years before his death in 2014. The Jean & Paul Amos Performance Studio was named in honor of their generous gift.
