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.

I check it sporadically, but I love answering emails, so if you have an issue or difficult person you need help with, don't hesitate to shoot it my way.

What's the plan Stan?

Something that a lot of bigger markets and networks do might work for you-- running through the plan with a reporter a minute or so before their liveshot. So after they are checked in tech-wise, you say "OK Suzie, we have got you in for a vosot, vo of people running, sot with john smith, runs :12, outcue have a great race. Wipe in to vo of the awards ceremony."

It is a quick easy thing to do that might catch a mistake and allows your reporter to touch base and vice-versa.
