When I direct the weekend news I've got quite a bit of technology to keep an eye on. Watching 22 TVs, running 4 computers, a production switcher, keeping up with the anchors on my scripts, and telling everyone what to do keeps me busy during the news. At my shop the Director is also the Technical Director, and also rolls video, loads Still Stores, and sometimes does graphics as well . It's a handful but I quite enjoy it.
This is for a rather small TV station.
