WLIO News has some impressive numbers in viewers during our newscasts. This is due in part to the super job our news department does in covering issues and news in West Central Ohio. The Your News Now videographer crew is made up of Chief Videographer Phil Thomas and Videographer Joe Miles.
These professionals shoot video out in the field and bring the news to viewers of Your News Now. News stories are shot in the field, and edited in one of six Final Cut edit suites at WLIO. All material is acquired with JVC 800 series cameras. Video is record on to video cards in a digital format. The days of videotape have all but disappeared.
The WLIO News ENG Live Truck is equipped with dual gas tanks, on-board power inverter, and gas powered generator. The truck transmits back to the station on the 2 gigahertz band using a Nurad transmitter system with a power of 2 or 12 watts. The truck is wired for stereo operation in the field.
