ABC12 news production went to hell

No Internet, no controller, no camera, no video, no teleprompter.

Just shut the place down!

Wow.

How can stations not have redundancies built in to to make sure major systems aren’t knocked offline?

Heads need to roll and major changes are needed in 12’s engineering department.

I feel bad for the talent that were told to go on air with basically no plan and no chance to put on a newscast that they could be proud of.

The CE is so cheap, he was probably running a free download of Malwarebytes.
12 had a long laundry list of system weakness’s. The CE always implemented incomplete systems that needed work arounds in order for them to communicate. SOP for years.
The IT guys at 12 are top notch, but are at a disadvantage having to work under him.

What happened yesterday will have no affect on anything there.
Just another day.

It got so bad yesterday that ABC 12 was calling in volunteers to help run paper messages to the anchors. What is this? Non-profit with unpaid volunteers? Totally embarrassing for everyone involved.

One poor gal was painting her basement when she got the bat call that ABC 12 needed help. She dropped everything to lend a hand. Probably will happen today as well.

ABC12 whole operation has been bad for a long time. Thier morning news cast is one of the worst in the area. A real dumpster fire.The morning hen house thing just doesn't work well. Wish they would get rid of the high pitched princess traffic girl.
