MASTER CONTROL: This is the central technological hub of WFMZ-TV. In this room, a staff of operators program and monitor WFMZ-TV 69.1 and our 3 sub-channels (The AccuWeather Channel, TUFF TV and RetroTV). The monitors on the left allow the operators to view the many incoming feeds, and also how our signal looks on different cable and satellite systems. During various hours of the day, the shows and commercials that you see on TV are delivered to us by satellite, internet download, digital video tape or hard disk. The shows are then stored (or as week call it, "ingested") on to a video server for instant editing and playback. The server can store hundreds of hours of video! Some of the live video streams on are also controlled from this room.

This room is also used to broadcast EAS (Emergency Alert System) information to help keep you informed.
