Broadcasting Through Adversity – October 14, 2015 @ 6 PM

When disaster strikes, how do we keep the public informed?

Broadcasting systems can be as vulnerable as we are, yet they have a crucial job supporting our communications. How have we evolved and created systems that can continue running through severe weather, terror, or other disasters?

The WCPR Alumni Association is looking to answer that question with “Broadcasting Through Adversity” – a panel discussion featuring broadcast industry leaders sharing their experiences and ideas about creating reliable, sustainable systems.

Join us on October 14 in the Bissinger Room, from 6-8pm as we discuss the past and future of broadcast systems with a panel featuring:

Richard Palestri, Director of Implementation, NBC
Bob Desiato, Director of AT&T Disaster Recovery
Chris Tobin, former Chief Engineer, 1010 WINS
Jeff Kinney, Director of Field Operations/Chief Photographer, CNN
