Ten days later and the problems in the Control Room seem to have become a way of life for the most experienced broadcasting enterprise in the country.

    “Could it be because the techs in the control room are having to do the work of 3 while producing a LIVE show.” EXACTLY!

    And almost all the people who once tested and aligned systems / transmitters etc etc are gone. The Corp big wigs thik they can run the entire network on laptops using casual employees!

    My union rep tells me that 52% of the technical staff in our plant is within 3 years of retirement yet no effort is being made to hire new people and have them trained and gaining experience before all the old guys ship off!

    Know why? Most of thew Corps mangers are also within 3 years of retirement. What me worry?

    Meh, I’ve seen worse.

    Technical screw-ups are the least of the problems around here

    Yesterday afternoon around 16:00 EST on CBC NN Carole MacNeil threw to a the over used pre-recored reporter on camera from earlier in the day only to have Suhana show up during the interview doing the talk back with the reporter.

    Carol said they rolled the wrong tape.I thought Toronto was all on server now?

    What happened to that guy’s hair? Talk about problems. Having a business commentator with Irritable Bald Syndrome. No wonder he seems like such a crank. Somebody get him some hair. Next you know he’ll think he’s the anchor and should be standing.

      Two obvious mistakes in vision mixer operation within just one minute, on what appears to be a standard situation. It indicates a pretty low standard to consider this as a natural thing for live broadcasting.
