We take turns planning outings for our group. This month I was in charge of planning our trip. My DH and I have our coffee every morning while watching the morning show on Channel 6, WDSU. I feel as though they are all part of our family. We have enjoyed their company for many years. I always thought it would be nice to meet some of the broadcasters in person. SO....... Today a group of us drove into New Orleans for one of our monthly trips. We had a great time touring Channel 6, WDSU TV.
Here are a few of the photos we took.
Ann Bell (front left) gave us a tour of the studio. I am so sad that I did not get a picture of Ms Lu Adams, the sweet lady who set up the date and time for our tour. Everyone there was so nice to us.
Jay Galle, a meteorologist, gave us a demonstration of how they look at maps in front of a 'green' screen.
Diane gave it a try...pointing at a screen while looking at a map on a monitor is not so easy to do!
We were aloud to watch a live news update broadcast.
We were all able to get behind the news desk with
Jay Galle and Sula Kim (she is new to the station) I think she will fit in perfectly with all the others on the news team.
The news room was a busy place!
Susan and I were able to get a picture with Randi Rousseau. She does the news in the morning. She is the one I contacted to get the plans of this tour started.
Here is a photo of the WDSU TV studios.
