Maybe they'll take it into ENG (Electronic News Gathering), but this 
would have nothing to do with Master Control.  Master at Channel 7 is 
concerned with the on-air program only, all news feeds go through 
ENG, program feeds are recorded in VTR (Video Tape Room).

I know that in some smaller stations these functions are combined, 
but in the big city they are clearly separate functions.
