The Board of Governors has chosen a new member to the Northern California NATAS Chapter Gold Circle. Franklin Mieuli will be inducted during the 20 th anniver- sary Gold & Silver Circle Induction Luncheon in San Francisco on Saturday, November 11. The prestigious Gold Circle honors individuals who have been actively engaged in television broadcasting for 50 years or more (at least half of those years in the San Francisco/Northern California Chapter Area) and made a significant contribution to the local television industry. “The Gold Circle honors service, professional- ism, excellence and longevity,” says NATAS chapter President Lynn Friedman. “Franklin deserves extra recognition for his incredible love of life, for changing the face of Bay Area sports and for providing compelling subject matter for the media.” During his colorful 56 years in the Northern Califor- nia sports broadcast industry, Franklin Mieuli has been a remarkable pioneer, bringing major sporting events to Bay Area fans. Back in 1954, Franklin produced the first San Francisco 49’ers telecasts. In 1956, he formed

By Keith Sanders “See the full story tonight!” and “Coming up after this commercial announcement!” are common promo- tional phrases heard on television news. They rely on the assumption that audiences don’t mind waiting for an arbitrary time to view content, and don’t mind being ambushed by commercials when they do. These assumptions have been valid since television began. Soon they may no longer be true. So how are the audiences changing? How are new technologies changing news? NATAS is offering a unique opportunity to learn about the future of news from a panel of experts at the New Technology in News “The Future of Broadcast News,” forum, coming Wednesday, September 20, from 7–9:30 p.m. at KPIX (CBS 5), 855 Battery St., San Francisco. To put this future in perspective, let’s review the history of news technology. The first large scale televi- sion broadcasts began after World War II using

been supplemented with Podcasts and Internet-based streaming. So how is new technology being used in the newsroom? What does the future hold? The answers to your questions can be found at NATAS’ unique forum: New Technology in News “The Future of Broadcast News” on Wednes- day, Sept. 20 at KPIX-TV. Panelists include C/Net News.com Executive Editor Harry Fuller who will talk about news on demand, blogs & podcasts. His first on-line job was with CBS, he then moved to Tech TV in 1998 before joining C/Net News.com. (See the Harry Fuller sidebar on page 4) KNTV Executive Producer of New Media Jan Boyd is in charge of on-line content. She works to integrate the newsroom with their website, in Channel 11’s all-digital facility. KXTV reporter Dan Adams has

seen News10 become a leader in web- based news. “Last month an edict came down from management that we should file our stories first on our website, and then for the news broadcast” said Adams. His reports take the form of Windows Media files, which are sent to the station via File Transfer Protocol. CBS5.com Managing Editor Carlos Castaneda will demonstrate how newscasts can be made available for

Klystron tube amplifiers. Locally, KPIX went on the air December 24 th , 1948. It was the 49th station nationwide and the first in Northern California. KPIX became affiliated with CBS on April 18, 1949. The first 15 years of television saw remark- able changes. Color TV began in 1954, the first use of videotape in network programming occurred in 1956 and the first satellite televi- sion signal was relayed from Europe to North America in 1962. The growth of the cable industry began to fragment the monolithic (and relatively homogeneous) TV audience of the time. This development took an- other turn in 1980 with the launch of Ted Turner’s superstation CNN. Now national and international news could be seen on a 24/7 basis. TV reception had always been spotty

in San Francisco because of the hilly terrain. Eventually KTVU, KRON, KPIX and KGO got together to build Sutro Tower, a giant structure that rises almost 1,000 feet into the air. Sutro began operating in 1973 and it’s now used to transmit 10 analog, 11 digital TV stations and 4 FM radio stations. By the turn of the century, most television viewers were not even using their rooftop antennas. Cable television,

satellite reception, DVR recording and even Internet-based users had fragmented the broad- cast audience. According to the FCC, more than 86% of Americans now subscribe to some sort of multi-channel service, such as a cable or satellite provider, rather than relying solely on over-the-air broadcast television…and these figures are five years old. Local TV newsrooms have always been showcases for new technology. Cinematographers became videographers. Tape formats evolved from Quad to U- matic to 1” to beta…and now hard drives have replaced all tape at many stations. Live microwave and satellite feeds are common. Traditional news broadcasts have

His accomplishments include many firsts, like the Bay Area’s first live international satellite feed. Since 1983 Don has served as frequency coordinator for Northern California. Working with TV stations and the FCC, he is responsible for 1GHZ and above. KTVU’s Sharon Navratil is producing the event. RSVP to emmysf@comcast.net.

Posted by Keith Sanders

In the early ‘70’s Harry Fuller started his television career at KPIX as a messenger with a Master’s degree from Stanford. Soon he was hired away by KGO-TV as morning assignment editor where he quickly moved up to the position of news director. Under his leadership the station earned Emmy®, Edward R. Murrow and Peabody awards for its coverage of the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Soon KPIX lured Fuller back as news director. He earned numerous Emmy® Awards in that position and was later promoted to General Manager. Under his leadership KPIX launched the first station website in

1995.

A year later Harry left KPIX for a news director job at ZDTV, which morphed into TechTV. Three years later, as the tech boom was going bust, Harry went to work as an Executive Producer for CNBC Europe in London. Harry Fuller returned to San Francisco a year ago as Executive Editor at CNET. Recently I had an opportunity to interview him.

Keith: You’ve been a very successful broadcaster who’s helped to guide the evolution to on-line viewing. Have many viewers become Internet users? Harry: Much of the change has already happened. Appointment viewing is dead among the under-35s. Video on demand wins, for the same reason the auto trumps the train. When TV networks lose their domi- nance of big name big profit sports, they are doomed. The first time Yahoo, Google or YouTube buys the rights to the Masters Golf Tournament we can hold a wake for broadcasting. Keith: Blogs have no counterpart in broadcast television. How important have blogs become on-line? Harry: Less than 20% of people admit to using blogs but those who do are the opinion-makers, the leading edge of cultural and social change. Less than a decade ago (it was) the same small minority that used the Internet for anything other than emails. Many blogs are aggregators and filters, not simply opinion-mon- gers. Keith: Have there been any recent events that have helped to define on-line news? Harry: The London bombing was the first major event covered by citizens using cell phone cameras, one year ago. Iraq and Lebanon are the first YouTube wars, where video is posted uncensored, unedited (maybe) and uncontrolled by any organized media. See Harry Fuller in person at New Technology in News “The Future of Broadcast News,” Wednesday from 7 – 9:30pm, September 20 at KPIX CBS5, 855 Battery St, San Francisco.

With one last trade- mark flip of his Magic Marker, Joel Bartlett signed off from ABC 7 News for the last time. Well, maybe not for the last time. Even though he officially retired August 18 th , Bartlett plans to pop up on KGO-TV from time to time. He says, “I’ll still be doing fill-in when people are on vacation, so that will be nice to see every- body again when I come back in down the road.” After more than 30 years of doing weather on Bay Area television stations, you’ll have to forgive Bartlett if he misses the hustle and bustle of a newsroom, and most of all, his co- workers. Just don’t expect him to miss the early morning shift. “I don’t miss having to come in at 3:00 in the morning any more. I don’t miss that shift at all,” he says. “My body’s still on that early schedule a bit, but the nice thing is that now when I wake up early in the morning, I can roll over and go back to sleep.” Bartlett started his Bay Area career back in September of 1975, as the weekend weatherman at KPIX (CBS 5). Within a year, he moved up to the 6pm and 11pm news- casts, where he remained for 14 years, until his old friend, Harry Fuller became News Director at KGO and lured him across the street. Bartlett remembers that day well:

“It was a big story be- cause I was coming over to work with my arch rival, Pete Giddings. Every- body thought we would fight, but we got along very well.” Anybody who thought they would fight must not know Joel. It’s

hard to imagine him fighting with anyone. During Bartlett’s 17 years at KGO, he worked on virtually every show, finishing his successful run the past three and a half years on the early morn- ing and Midday news- casts. Now that he’s sleeping in again, he says he’s enjoying the simple things about being re- tired: “I can pick up one of the New Yorker maga- zines that’s been piling up on my coffee table and actually have time to read it.” He’s also devoting more time to one of his great loves, horses, and playing polo. He’s even planning a trip to Argen- tina in November with some friends. “We’ll be going during their sum- mertime. I’m going mainly just to see the country- side. I’ve heard how beautiful it is, but I’ve never been. We’re going down to a ranch, so I’ll definitely ride some of their horses while I’m there, and maybe play some polo. That’s the big ‘retirement’ trip right now.” What about later in the winter, when the first big storm hits the Bay Area. How will he feel about retirement then? Joel says candidly, “I’ll be thinking, ‘Oh jeez, I know what they’re going through in that weather office right now,’ so sure, I’ll want to come in and be part of it. Weather will always a big part of my life; I definitely want to keep my hand in it. But honestly, it will be nice to sleep in for once during a storm, and turn on the TV and watch somebody else show me what’s happen- ing outside.” Go ahead and hit the snooze button, Joel. You’ve more than earned it.
