The man behind the scenes

I wanted to give a shout out to the man who’s been making most of our live reports from North Texas run smoothly.

Thomas works at our sister station, KXAN in Austin, Texas. His job all week has been to drive the truck around to the live locations, park the giant truck, tune in the satellite, check video and audio, set everything up before the show and tear it down after. Oh, and we’ve been going live starting at 5 am, with our last shot ending at 10 pm – every day. He has done most of them, with help from Dave, another fantastic gentleman from KXAN.

Through it all, Thomas has been great. He’s a funny, easygoing guy who’s very good at what he does.

So thanks Thomas and Dave, and thanks KXAN!

  1. Thomas is THE guy you want working a live shot… it WILL happen despite any difficulties.

    He makes MacGuyver ask the question… “How’d he do that?”
