Additional Info: We
met at the station in Wilmington on a Wednesday around 4:30. We had a tour
in small groups through the station right before they were going live with
the 5:00 news. We saw the editors rushing around, writers, Nancy Karibjanian
said Hi, and the actual studio. Then we watched the show in the lobby.
Most people left after 10 minutes, but Bill and the boys and I were still
watching when the tour woman told us if we were very, very quiet we could
go into the studio and watch the broadcast live. It was very interesting
watching the cameraman select different cameras and seeing the people live. -
