I was Newscast Director / Technical Director in the morning news cast and midday show.
My job was to ensure all positions were manned and all equipment and facilities were checked out and ready before the recording session or live broadcast began. I switched video sources, performed live digital effects and transitions, and inserted pre-recorded material, graphics and titles as instructed by the director.
As the Technical Director I provided training to inexperienced members of the technical crew when needed. Along with the director, I contributed to the creative side of the production, depending on the situation.
