Television news vans driven by personnel with Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department-accredited news identification can find parking at the Valet Parking drop-off point in front of the main passenger terminal. This location is also suitable for news van antenna deployment and offers a good vantage point of the passenger terminal for stand-ups and live shots. A call to the Public Information Office, or to Airport Operations at 818.840.9536 in advance of your arrival is recommended so we can accommodate your needs.
There is NO MEDIA PARKING on the curb in front of the passenger terminal under any circumstances, and no parking is permitted on the Airport circulation roadway.
News gathering activity by accredited members of the press is allowed in the public portions of the passenger terminal, provided it does not interfere with the normal conduct of airline and passenger business, or onsite security by law enforcement personnel or the TSA. Television news crews should take special care to ensure their camera and stand-up locations allow normal pedestrian traffic to flow without interference.
