of NBC buying WHDH, in that they would move Master Control to New
York and we would all get laid off.<<
You may be right. The O&O's are now all operated in NY, Burbank, and Miami.
Usually, they even get rid of the Chief Engineer along with MCR and the
stations become news based. Each station has the capability to break in with news
from the station and that is about all.
The NYC Hub has one person per three stations, and as long as nothing is
going on, it works very well. If there is something newsworthy in one to three
markets it is still manageable. When something national happens it is fun to
There is an area next to the Hub that records all of the local stuff from
the stations to be integrated into the HUB MCR. It works satisfactorily, not
like a local MCR, but satisfactorily.
