In the dark

Liz @ Lost Remote notes a situation in which a TV station loses power and is broadcasting from a satellite truck: There’s no prompter, there’s just one camera, half the studio lights are off, and here’s the best thing — they have drawn out their weather maps on large pieces of paper. It’s quite refreshing getting a break from the zoomy animations and whooshing flashiness. Bad situations happen and backup plans obviously need to be evaluated at WKRC, but I have to say that their low-tech TV is incredibly watchable!

Quite an interesting read after a busy day… Interesting to see what the media is without electricity.
