Radio Systems Goes to the Movies

Philadelphia - Oct 5, 2007 - When Hollywood wants realism, it turns to the industries being portrayed to ensure that what moviegoers see is closer to reality than fiction. In September, the movie The Brave One staring Jodie Foster was released.

In the movie, radio host Erica Bain (Foster) works and lives in New York City. When her husband is killed and she is severely beaten, Bain copes with the tragic event by becoming a vigilante. Because the lead character's career is that of a radio host, the movie required a radio studio. The role also required Foster to learn how to act like a radio personality, which included the technical operations of radio.

The Brave One

To construct the radio studio, Warner Brothers approached Radio Systems for its facility integration experience. The working studio was built on a Brooklyn soundstage.

For Foster, learning how to operate radio equipment was important to make her character believable. To show her the ropes, Daniel Braverman, president of Radio Systems, met with Foster at the studios of WOR so she could learn how it all worked. The two are seen here in this photo taken at WOR prior to production.
