Default Reporter and Photog argue live on air

Reporter George Howell (WSB Atlanta) and his photog were doing a live shot from a flooded elementary school. When the anchor tossed to them they were clearly unaware their shot was hot. They appear to be arguing over camera placement.

SO funny !! I love these reporters that dont understand a live camera, is always on the air. Thats how I look at a cam, hooked to a truck, feeding back to the station.

I think that makes the photog & reporter look bad, when I think it is more the producer's responsibility to not take a live shot that isn't ready.

Heck, I learned a long time ago to put the camera on the ground if I'm not ready to go live. I think most producers or directors don't want to cut to a reporter's shoes live.

Anyone have the full story here?

They weren't arguing. It looks more like he was talking to the coordinating producer when he started saying, "Yes, yes. Yes."

This is a classic example of how foolish a live crew can look when the crew in the control room isn't paying attention to all elements of the newscast.

I will say this...I worked with George for two years and I find this just dumb. He is a smart guy and when ever we had a problem he would always talk calm and not argue with you. I think it was the the entire teams fault. My number one rule is this, if your reporter is not ready to go on air, don't point the camera at them. Most I know just don't move into the shot if they are not ready. That is in a rare case though.

George is a great guy even when I gave him crap for wanting to do a million standups.

Weak. I didn't see an argument there.

Exclamation Hot

I think the point is just that it happened, at all. Pure stupidity! Rule #1 is that you are ALWAYS hot & they failed that rule. Sadly, this is the "#1" Atlanta TV station & it all kinda goes down hill from there.

I remember a certain consultant using that video and claiming it was a "common occurence" in the news business. Now that was funny!


For those who haven't seen it yet, here's a link to the "I can't hear (excrement)!" video Baltimore was referring to. The timing of the situation makes me laugh!
