Leslie and I were invited to attend a broadcast of CBS’s Good Day Sacramento in 2017.
Waiting in the lobby for security to usher us in, we shared the main lobby with some interesting folks. One lady had her little dog in-tow, she was promoting vegetarian dog food. Another was promoting skin care products. Others were performing a musical that night in town. We were brought into the control room. This is live TV. No do-overs. Hit the wrong button and everyone sees it for hundreds of miles. In the main news room, we found it to be a well-organized machine. Set ups between commercials left maybe two-three seconds of breathing time between rolling live. Ready or not, rolling!
I was amazed at the seemingly tireless and dedicated staff all pulling together to present an entertaining, informative broadcast to the good people of the Sacramento area.
Big thanks to the entire staff at Good Day Sacramento for their hospitality and the kind access to behind the scene process.
