Behind The Scenes


When you watch a news program, be it local or national, you see the anchors and reporters. However, behind the scenes, a number of people work to bring you the news. Every newsroom has assignment editors, photographers, tape editors, and producers. During the newscast, there are camera operators in the studio with the anchors, and in the control room, the producers, directors, chryon operators, and others face the numerous computers and monitors (above).

Please note: Sorry I'm late in posting this today. . .I have two days left in this first
MFA residency at Murray State.

Nice shot. A long time ago I did a 13-week television series and not only wrote it, but hosted it and that meant I had to talk a lot. Anyway, the whole program was controlled upstairs by people not in the studio. It is a fascinating business. If I were younger now I would try to get into it more.

I like your photograph. A constant reminder of people behind the scenes in our lives.

I took the photo at WTVF-TV in Nashville, the local CBS affiliate. The number of monitors and screens they have to watch is amazing, isn't it? It would drive me nuts!

Yes, there are a lot of people behind the scenes in our lives, aren't there? I like to remind people of that sometimes.
