What’s it like to work in the broadcast industry? Dozens of TV and radio hopefuls got the chance to find out at NATAS’ annual Meet The Pros. The event was held April 27 at the KPIX studios in San Francisco. The gathering was co-sponsored by American Women in Radio & Television as well as the Radio & Television News Directors Association. Several dozen students and other guests heard from people who work in television and radio. They also got some one-on-one time to sit down at tables with the professionals. The panelists participating were: Julie Chin, KGO-AM assistant news director; Sal Castaneda, KTVU traffic reporter; Steve Poitras, UPN Bay Area station manager; Kevin Keeshan; ABC7 news director; Mahelda Rodriguez, KDTV executive producer; Dante Betteo, KCSM executive producer; Doug Sovern, KCBS radio reporter; Erik Nordby, KGO-AM producer; Ernie Rizzuti, KDTV general sales manager; Joe Vasquez, CBS5 reporter; and Stephanie Adrouny, ABC7 executive producer.

“We have long held that we have among the best photojournalists in the business,” said Linda Sullivan, President and General Manager of NBC11. ”(These) awards proved it once again.” NBC11’s other winners: · Kent Wilhoite, Award of Excellence for Television Spot News, “Strip Mall Fire” · Don Hardy, First Place for Television General News, “Wine Crop” · Dean Smith, Award of Excellence for Television Features, “Death by Caltrain” More than 175 news photographers as well as photojournalism students in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento areas submitted about 5,000 images and tapes for consideration in this year’s competition. Some $10,000 in cash and prizes were awarded.

Gold and Silver Circle members joined the Broadcast Legends on March 15th at the DoubleTree Hotel in the Berkeley Marina for lunch with Jack & Elaine LaLanne. Jack & Elaine, members of all three groups, gave a motivational talk about health and fitness as well as remembering the good old days of live television at KGO. His exercise shows can still be seen on TV, along with his famous “jucier” infomercial. Diane Paskerian, Legend and Silver Circle member took time to have her photo taken with Jack.

KRON 4 President and General Manager Mark Antonitis says, “We’re thrilled to have Chris leading the KRON 4 News Department during these challenging times. Chris’s many years of experience in journalism, operations, and new technologies will continue to serve KRON 4 News well.” Chris started in radio in Santa Barbara, then moved on to television news reporting in Monterey and Providence, R.I., before moving behind the scenes as 6:00pm producer at KGO-TV in San Francisco in 1983. Five 2 years later, he moved overseas to manage the Christian Science Monitor’s television bureau in London, and earned a business degree from the London School of Economics. He eventually moved to Boston with The Monitor, before returning to the Bay Area with KRON four years ago. The Academy Board of Governors wish Chris the best of luck in one of the most challenging new management positions in the country.


Chris Lee has been named the News Director of KRON 4 in San Francisco. Lee is a Bay Area native who joined KRON as Executive Producer in 2001, was promoted to Assistant News Director then Acting News Director in November of 2004 when Stacy Owen left on maternity leave, and continued in that position after Stacey decided not to return.

KRON 4 is teaming up again this month with Albertsons to bring the Bay Area exclusive live coverage of the world’s largest footrace, Bay to Breakers. The unique 7.46 mile race takes place Sunday, May 15th. KRON 4 will devote 2 ½ hours of airtime to broadcast the race and accompanying antics live for all those in the bay area who can’t make it into the city to experience Bay to Breakers in person. General Manager Mark Antonitis says, “We are very excited to broadcast and participate in the infamous Albertsons Bay to Breakers event.” The program will ABC include live footage from cameras stationed throughout the race course, from the start in the Financial District to the Hayes Street hill, Golden Gate Park, and the party at the polo grounds. And for those race participants who can’t watch the race live, the coverage will be rebroadcast on KRON 4 the same night from 6:30PM to 9:00PM.


Beginning Friday, May 6, to coincide with the season premiere of California Connected, KQED Public Television 9 will alter its Friday evening lineup. The new schedule broadens the range of public affairs programs airing on Friday nights and 6 places more emphasis on local and statewide current affairs. The new Friday night lineup is: 6:00-7:00pm The Newshour With Jim Lehrer 7:00-7:30pm Nightly Business Report 7:30-8:00pm This Week in Northern California 8:00-8:30pm Washington Week 8:30-9:00pm California Connected California Connected, hosted by Lisa McRee and produced through a unique collaboration between KCETLos Angeles, KPBS-San Diego, KQED-San Francisco and 8 KVIE-Sacramento, is a statewide weekly news magazine program. Locally produced, This Week in Northern California, is hosted by Belva Davis, and is celebrating its 15th season.


Last month during a rundown of how San Francisco TV stations were doing, Off Camera noted that while NBC11 wasn’t winning any newscasts outright, it was doing well in many key demographics. Well, it turns out KNTV has been scoring high in the 25-54 demo for some time. The NBC11 News at 11:00 won the April Nielsen book in adults 25-54, and has won that demo at 11pm every month since the introduction of People Meters in October, 2004. 5 Here’s the April Nielsen ratings, rolling average, 11:00pm newscasts, Monday-Sunday (Adults 25-54): KNTV 2.4 (9 share) KPIX 2.0 (7 share) KGO 1.9 (7 share) KRON 0.6 (2 share) Stations covet demographic ratings because for the most part, advertisers buy the demos more than the total ratings. They view adults between the ages of 25 to 54 as having the largest disposable income, and just as importantly, as being the key decision makers in how that family income will be 7 spent. Ratings in key demos are currency for TV stations, making this victory worth much more than just bragging rights for NBC11.

The scholarships are named after individuals who have made significant contributions to the Television Academy. Sheldon “Shelly” Fay was a multi-talented television professional who worked in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than 25 years. He was a Producer, Director, Photographer and Film Editor who began his career at KPIX-TV in 1962. From 1964-1970, he served as Vice President of Mendelson Productions, and eventually formed his own production company. In 1976, Shelly returned to KPIX-TV where he worked on “Evening Magazine,” “Impact,” “All Together Now,” “SuperKids,” and “Hot Streaks” until his death in 1990. Peter J. Marino was a stalwart member of the San Francisco/Northern California Chapter of the Television Academy. He served as Governor, Officer, and Chair of several committees, including Scholarship (which he cofounded), and Membership. A native of San Francisco, Peter was well known for his public relations exploits and as a music and video producer. He was associated with several Dick Clark musical television productions, was a principal in a Bay Area audio recording studio, and represented several major recording companies during his colorful career. Multiple Emmy award-winning television reporter Rigo Chacon and his wife, Lucy, offer the first Abrazos & Books Reporting scholarship to an outstanding student who aspires in the field of television reporting. The Chacons founded Abrazos & Books Scholarship Program which grew out of the devastation of the 1985 earthquake in Mexico City when Mr. Chacon was sent there to report on the disaster. That money helped build homes and classrooms and has grown to assist hundreds of students in Mexico and the United States.

Your future starts here. NAB 2005 drew 97,000 attendees and 700 exhibitors to Las Vegas during six days in April. There was far too much going on to cover more than just one area of interest…low cost HD cameras, software & technology. Ron Wells, Sales Manager at VMI in Sunnyvale took a look at new pro-sumer HD camcorders. He remarked, “HDV is no longer the only way to go when you want to shoot low-cost HD.” As a matter of fact, the only HDV camera shown was the Sony HVRZ1U (which VMI premiered at a NATAS HD Seminar in February). This $4,900 unit is backward compatible with the DVCAM format and offers smart viewfinder focusing and zooming features not yet seen in higher end models. The JVC GYHD100 features uncompressed 720i signal output, interchangeable lenses, a IEEE 1394 bus interface and a patented focus assist function that exaggerates picture detail. It will be available in the summer for about $6,300. Panasonic’s AGHVX200 can shoot in DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO 50 & DVCPRO/DV formats. The DVCPRO HD format has a video bit rate of 100Mbps, 4 channels of uncompressed audio and full 4:2:2 color sampling. The P2 flash card option offers tapeless and drive-less capture with superior resistance to vibration, impact and temperature change. This camera will be sold in Q4 for under $10,000.

HD production software doesn’t cost much more than the standard definition software it replaces. Adobe Systems offered some tantalizing hints at what Premiere 7.0 will look like, with improved timeline nesting, color correction and real time playback. Apple Computer’s Final Cut Studio showed how one suite of video productivity software can work with DV, SD & HD seamlessly. The bundle consists of Final Cut Pro 5, Soundtrack Pro (audio editing), Motion 2 (animation) and DVD Studio Pro (authoring). Another popular production bundle is the Vegas + DVD Production Suite. which combines Vegas® 6, DVD Architect™ 3, and Dolby Digital® AC-3.

San Francisco - May 9th

The words “hip” and “original” were generously tossed around the packed Dolby Laboratories Theater in San Francisco on March 23rd after the debut screening of award-winning D3 Productions, Inc.’s most recent documentary, Riding Rails in China. The 110-minute program - the second of D3 Productions’ series of feature-length travel adventures - follows two young Americans, Nick and Chris, on their first trip to China. From the Great Wall to the Pearl River Delta, they ride through the country’s changing landscape on good old Chinese locomotives. They stop en route to meet locals in traditional neighborhoods, eager university students, entrepreneurial southern farmers, and hardworking migrant laborers. The screening, coupled with D3 Productions’ 8th anniversary party, was a proud moment for the D3 team, including owner and Executive Producer Duffy Wang, DP/editor Alex Chiang, Producer Alison Gibson, and Associate Producers Anna-Sophie Loewenberg and Nicole Marsh. Even the Dolby Facilities Manager Tom Bruchs—who has obviously seen countless films— described it as a completely new genre. Bruchs said he felt as though he was traveling with Nick and Chris to a far-away place without having to step-out of his control room, and without the stiff format that characterizes many travel documentaries. Others called it “trendy and engaging,” and described it as a reality-type show without the forced drama, and with much more depth. Audience members included longtime D3 associates, as well as representatives from many local TV stations, including KCSM, KQED, WB20, CBS-5 and ABC-7. Encouraged by all the positive feedback, Executive Producer Duffy Wang is now in the process of making syndication decisions and getting the film on the air. The first of Wang’s travel documentaries, Tibet Diary, is currently airing nationwide on PBS stations. In addition to travel specials, D3 Productions devotedly produces its weekly magazine series Inside China and documentary series Land of the Dragon to offer PBS viewers a deeper understanding of the daily lives, culture, fine art and history of the Han Chinese and China’s many ethnic minorities. Through these varied genres, D3 Productions offers a timely and authoritative look at the rapidly changing face of China, a complex society that is increasingly impacting our own.
