In the OALD9, it says:

studio
noun
a room where radio or television programmes are recorded and broadcast from, or where music is recorded

I think that 'where' means 'from which' or 'in which', so is 'from' unnecessary here? If not, could you tell me the reason?

I don't.

I agree that where means from which or in which, but I don't think it has both meanings at the same time. It clearly means in which as far as recording is concerned, and I would use from to clarify the broadcasting element of the sentence. Where can also mean to which so how do you know whether the programme is being broadcast to or from the room without further explanation, especially in a dictionary definition?

OK, so I would think it would be clearer if it wrote as follows:

studio
noun
a room in which radio or television programmes are recorded and from which they are broadcast, or where music is recorded
