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.

Interesting Story Structure

I was listening to a radio story on the oil spill a while ago. It had an interesting story structure that you could steal.

So President stops here first, we go back and talk with someone there and then present that part in the story first. It was an unusual way to tell a story and I think really effective in this case.
