GMA To Spotlight Denver Friday

ABC's New York Windows Will Feature Denver Scene

ABC News’ "Good Morning America" has selected Denver to be one of three cities featured in the window of their studio on Times Square, offering the Mile High City an unprecedented opportunity for national publicity to millions of viewers and New Yorkers.

While the window is being unveiled in New York City, "Good Morning America" will have a live camera in Denver at Union Station to show off the people who come down to the train station. "Good Morning America" is live on the East Coast from 5 a.m. to 7 a.m. Denver time.

Ten cities competed for the window showcase. GMA selected Denver, Kansas City and Atlanta.

It is an annual tradition for New Yorkers to come to the city and view windows decorated for the holidays, and there are few windows in the Big Apple with more visibility than ABC Studios, which is located at 44th and Broadway, directly across the street from the spot where the Times Square ball is dropped every New Year’s Eve.

"Visit Denver", the Convention & Visitors Bureau, decorated the 11.5-foot-long space. The display features models of many of the city’s top holiday icons, including Denver's City & County Building, Union Station, the Parade of Lights, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and the Denver Art Museum. A moving replica of the Ski Train circles the window, entering the Moffitt Tunnel to Winter Park Resort, while skiers schuss down a giant mountain above.

“This is really an incredible opportunity to showcase Denver, both on national television and to hundreds of thousands of New York visitors,” said Jayne Buck, vice president of tourism for Visit Denver.

The display will be in the ABC Studio window until Dec. 30.
