Television: Newsmakers June 29, 2008




Grand Rapids Press:

"One minute!" "Here we go everybody, have a good one. Nice and tight." "Silver 2 and cue music." "Effect 8 and fade music." "Pull Y ... dissolve." It's 7 p.m. on a warm, mid-week June night at Comerica Park. The Detroit Tigers are facing the Chicago White Sox in a key American League Central showdown, and there still are at least five minutes to go before Tigers starter Justin Verlander makes his first pitch to leadoff batter Orlando Cabrera. Right now, all the action is in the FSN Detroit production truck, a 53-foot long state-of-the-art semi trailer with millions of dollars worth of consoles, monitors, computers -- and seemingly just as many cables and wires. Inside, there's about a dozen people shouting -- often simultaneously -- in code about fonts, graphics, camera angles, replays and promotions. This kind of controlled chaos is routine on game day, one of the 150-plus games FSN will cover this season... Behind the scenes of a Tigers broadcast (Sun, 6/29)
