WATE-TV, Knoxville's first television station, provides tours for groups wishing to learn about television news and production, and careers in multimedia communications.

Additionally, WATE is located in the historic Greystone Mansion in North Knoxville. Groups can request a tour of the building that was once home to the Camp Family.

The ideal group size for a tour of the home or television studio is 10-12 people.

Mary Starr on WATE

WATE 6 On Your Side is Knoxville's first television station and we have a rich history in East Tennessee.

From the beginning, the station pioneered local programs that served the community, including Mary Starr’s Homemaker Show and TV Classroom Quiz. We are housed in Greyston Manor, a mansion that was built in 1890 for Major Eldad Cicero Camp, a Union officer in the Civil War, as well as a Knoxville lawyer and entrepreneur.
