CONTROL-A: This is our main studio control room. We call it "Control-A." It was built to specifically handle the growing needs of our news department. It is the nerve center of the entire news broadcast. Here, the broadcasts are controlled by the producer, director, audio operator, and others. The director follows the script which has been prepared for the newscast. He or she gives instructions to the camera operators, tape playback operator, audio, master control, and live remote staff.
While the director sits directly in front of the switcher and monitors, the producer and executive producer sit further back in the room.
