After five decades at 5151 Wisconsin Avenue in the Friendship Heights neighborhood of NW Washington DC, Fox 5 is getting new, shiny digs in Bethesda. The new headquarters are two miles up the street located at 7272 Wisconsin Avenue. Fox 5 will take up three floors of the new building. The first show from the new building is scheduled for Saturday at 6 pm.
