> Hey Everyone,
> 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?
