Call for Help

OK. Things are changing so fast in this business that those of us who've been out of it more than about 20 minutes don't know how things are done any more. We're having numerous discussions about scripting format and such things.

So, I'm hereby requesting copies of your scripts, so we can see how the big boys are doing it. Computerization has made a big difference in all this. For instance, even little ol' KUJH no longer uses tape (except for shooting, and not always then). That's prompted me to remove "VTR" from the scripts, a vestige of the old days when things were actually on tape.

If you can send the scripts electonically, that would be best. If not, you can mail hard copies to me at 2051 Dole Center, 1000 Sunnyside Ave., Lawrence, KS, 66045.

Thanks in advance.

Switcher Meltdown

So the #1 station in Boston learned an important lesson the other sucks when your switcher locks up and no one knows how to reboot it. Watch the pain...and hope it never happens to you.
