scma-tour-groupOn Saturday, December 7, 2013, members of the SCMA were invited to tour the news operation of television stations KCBS/KCAL at the CBS television facility in Studio City.

KCBS/KCAL News Assignment Manager Mark Liu acted as our “tour guide” and did an outstanding job.  Mark spent about 2-1/2 hours showing us everything it takes to put on the news shows on KCBS Channel 2 and KCAL Channel 9.  During the time he answered numerous questions and allowed us to visit every aspect of the operation and talk with the technical, production, and on-air talent.  Everyone was very generous with their time and they were interested in our group and what we do with our crazy scanning hobby.

Thank you, Mark, for a great tour!

A big thanks to SCMA Member Wayne Smith, N6LHV, LA-149, who set up and coordinated the tour.
