My CBS3 Trip
So thanks to one of my great Twitter followers (@fumordotnet)...I got an exclusive look behind the scenes of CBS3. It was really interesting and I am really glad he invited me to check out the studio. I was invited to visit the station and sit in on the noon show, Talk Philly with Ukee Washington and Pat Ciarrocchi. It was really interesting seeing all of the station and meeting all of the people working there. I got to visit the control room where I was told that much of the things done in the studio now is all computers. Although it might seem like they need a lot of people in the room during broadcasts, there are only two other people besides the two anchors in the room. All of the cameras are actually operated by computers and move around by themselves. It seems as though there are always people inside the building as many of the reporters and workers get there between 3am and 4am and newscasters are there until midnight. I got to take some fun pictures and really witness the news. I can't wait to go back in the future and actually get some video for you guys...this was just a short visit, but it was fun none the less.
