Andy's Angles and First Person: Fernwood
By the way, the amount of traffic on the roads of Monroe County, even at 3:30 am, is astounding.
Erich found a safe place to park the truck, lit the scene, and we were off and running.
After the braodcast, we found a couple of former Fernwood employees and a third person who remembered Fernwood's glory days. We were supposed to meet up with a fourth person, but time was not our friend. We waited as long as we could, but we had to head back to the office. Apologies.
As I listened to the interviews and picked out segments, Erich found old video of a Fernwood boxing match. It was in the building that burned, and it added quite a bit to the piece. Script written, approved, and edited. Friend and co-worker Carmella Mataloni would wrap around my piece at noon, with the latest information.
It was a good mix. Carmella had the latest facts. I had the "people piece." Everything worked out nicely.
More on Fernwood tomorrow.
AT 12:00 AM
