The Show Must Go On!

If you read Spencer Denton's post about the power situation at WHNT, then this video will sum up the situation. When the power goes out at a TV station, the show must go on! I'm not sure if they had a generator or not, but whatever happened... they had to do the newscast outside!

It reminds me of the day after Hurricane Ivan at WSFA. The generator had been running for 48 hours and it DIED! We had to do "Today In Alabama" just like WHNT did their newscast yesterday at 5:00. Here's the ironic part... the News Director at WHNT, Denise Vickers, was the news director at WSFA during Hurricane Ivan! She' getting use to working without a studio! Enjoy the clip. Needless to say, there are some video and audio issues....

Have a good day!

WOW! Talk about creativeness.....those folks in Alabama Weather sure have a handle on that talent! .... It never ceases to amaze me how some people have insight `as to how to forge ahead, and I wont even mention the wizardry of the net functions.
