How about some photos for the road?

I took the one below to show you what we see from the anchor chair: 3 cameras with teleprompters and tv monitors. When I started at KGW in 1985, people ran the studio cameras. Robots do the job now.

I took this shot to give you a better view of our robotic cameras. On occasion, they will crash into each other. It's hard not to laugh when this happens.

Many thanks to all. I will not forget you.

All the Best,
