The IBC – International Broadcast center could be held in a large warehouse 10 miles east of Tulsa. This facility is next to major fiber optic rights of way. Tulsa could have a hybrid IBC-MPC where the studios are on site at Expo Square, and the actual fiber optics broadcast center is remote.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulsa_Expo_Center
