Very interested in hearing more. Could solve some serious infrastructure challenges for this event. Where is the studio?

We spoke earlier about the idea of setting up an all day news center
to cover the unfolding of this Saturday's global action day - ONN
(OCCUPY NEWS NETWORK)
A few people expressed that it would be great to have news style
anchors seated in a studio to introduce coverage and coordinate
between live cams and edited content.
I've spoke to my contact in MNN (Manhattan Neighborhood Network) about
setting up in their studio and using their equipment as well as
broadcasting over their public access channel. My contact was very
interested in the idea and said that she would speak to her executive
director about it first thing in the morning.
It seems that they also have equipment that is ready to broadcast live
from the field.
If MNN is ready to move on this, we need to quickly decide if this is
the route we want to take in order to cover Saturday's events. If we
decide that we do wish to work with MNN, I suggest we move very quick
over the next few days to get everything in place.
One thing the MNN contact asked is that we provide our own crew to
operate the cameras and anchors to take shifts being in front of the
studio camera in order to broadcast the news.
What are people's thoughts on this?
