2018 Second Quarter #PIO Training at WOIO Channel 19 news #PresidentsDay

Leading off our 2018 2nd quarter Public Information Officer (PIO) Training at WOIO Channel 19/43 (CBS Affiliate).


I’m proud to have so many PIOs from across the State of Ohio and West Virginia discussing current issues and breaking news.

Collaboration and coordination were consistent themes we revisit all the time including Joint Information Center and Joint Information Systems (JIC/JIS). Current news stories like the FL shooting were hot button topics but we also discussed the Boston Bombing, FacebookLive killer, 2016 Republican National Convention, Chardon Shooting, Burke Lakefront plane crash, 3 girls missing for 10+ years, Imperial Ave murders, World Series, and NBA Championships.

But knowing that other PIOs are going through the same issues, we can commiserate and work toward a solution. Yes, of course we did the behind the scenes tours of the studio, desk assignment/reporter bullpen….

…anchor desks, and even popped into a planning meetings for the evening broadcast.

We had so many various disciplines represented.

Great to see all those hard working PIOs ensuring the safety for their communities on Presidents’ Day.

Also got a chance to see behind the scenes at HLN (formerly Headline News). Despite going through a newer format in the last 3-5 years, I’ve been a fan since the days of 30 minute repeat news as well a Linda Stouffer, Chuck Roberts, Lynn Russell, Wolfie, Jeanne Moos, etc….All from the 80s.

Fox only hires really tiny people to man their enormous iPads

So Fox News should be featured on MTV Tech Cribs now. Some geek had a wet dream and convinced the set peeps to build a touchscreen study hall at the studio.

Either Fox LOVES to touch things…

…or maybe they only hire really small people now.

Redic. How tired would your arms be after 30 minutes at these work stations?
