All Signals Lost....

Seems KTHV experienced some major technical issues last night as its signal was off air for quite some time. I don't have a time table for when the signal was lost then restored, but according to posts on the channel's facebook page the signal was lost around the 10pm news time.

The signal was not lost,It was a Feed from CBS which only had a test pattern up after "48 Hours" concluded @10PM
Blame it on Gannett for taking away master control operations from all of it's stations & moving them to Greensboro, North Carolina.This is what happens!!!

I wonder who they sold that time to.

Ah, yes. Automation. It's the future of television. The future will see less and less people behind the cameras. It's a manager's dream.

Some technical issue I have noticed recently on the news reporters in the field is distorted audio due to the level being too high. You would think that someone in the engineering or technical department (whatever they are calling it now)at the stations would attend to that issue and teach some people where the audio gain control is and how to use it when doing a standup in the field. A recent show with the Game and Fish guy was so distorted it was nearly impossible to understand what he was saying. Folks, this is not a hard thing to correct.

This is occurring on KARK and KTHV.

The 5 and 6 on KARK were total disasters last night (5-16-2011). Missed mics, no story ready, wrong camera punched up, and other faux pas.

I have seen better production by first year broadcasting majors at a college station.

Management has to be livid of this occurring in prime time "newscasts."
