RE: It's official: "Five on 5" gets the axe

I'm really tired about hearing about production costs being the main issue.

Production costs were much higher in the 60's and early 70's simply because
every camera was manned, people in the projection room, tape room, audio
blah blah. News used film, and stations paid huge amounts to cab companies
to rush the film back for processing.

The harsh reality is debt service is the culprit and things are only going
to get worse. Could channel 9 become a satellite of 5? I would doubt it but
never underestimate the logic of bean counters.

BTW don't forget that if 9 moves master control to Needham, someone will
also need to babysit the 2 North Country FOX translators.
