LYNN — It took a while to find, but Lynn Community Television (LCTV) has a new home.

On the first of the year, the city’s cable operation will move from tight quarters in City Hall to 4,500 square feet of studio space on Union Street.
**CORRECTION: We will be moving in on March 1, 2017**

“It fits our needs perfectly,” said Robert Tucker, president of the board of directors. “We looked at properties for four months, saw more than a dozen and this is the best.”

The Union Street site was chosen, Tucker said, because it’s on one level, is in the downtown and there’s plenty of parking.
