Welcome to the PIT List!

I'm a network field producer who also worked in local tv as a line producer and field producer. Over the years, I have had the great fortune to work with super people. Now I'd like to pass along what I know and rant a tad.

Newspapers Better at Lives

I saw something that surprised me. I was trying to watch a press conference in another city and checked for it to be live streamed on various T.V. websites and found nothing. Then I checked the city's newspaper website and there it was. I will grant you, the presser was in the middle of the day and none of the affils had a show on, but isn't this something we should be thinking about? More and more people are getting their news by web... and if you're already there... why not try to work with the web folks to get it up live. You can go live on lots of phones and there's always Skype on a laptop if you have one.
