Out with "The New (PL)" and in with A-Channel.

OK, I admit, I have been slacking off on my posts...but I have a good excuse! The New PL is now A-Channel and has it ever been a lot of work!! For the past 3 weeks we've been working away at getting all of our old logos switched to the new ones as well as integrating a whole new graphics system, lighting, camera shots, and a brand new newsroom. I actually went to Toronto for a few days to get some training on how to use the DEKO 3000. Upon my return, I was hit with L-O-N-G days getting everything up and running.

Since launching our new look wasn't enough to do on the day after the holiday weekend, we decided to hook up brand new cameras that afternoon (ready to go by 5pm) AND an international flight (Air France) crashed at the Toronto Airport that afternoon. Needless to say, it was the most exhilarating day I've spent in the newsroom.

Make sure you check out our brand new look and let me know what you think!
