I'd like the opportunity now to introduce the panel and then I have a couple of instructions as to the way we'd like to conduct the session in order to get the most value out of it. Starting on my left is Hugo Bondy whom you're familiar with from an earlier paper today. Hugo is a Chief Engineer of WAGA, Atlanta. Next to Hugo is Jim Kitchell, Manager of NBC News Services Division. Next to Jim is Torn Battista, Executive Vice President of the Columbia Television Stations Division. Adjacent to Torn, we have Ray Schneider, Director of Special projects Engineering & Development, Columbia Television Network. On my right is John Tallerico, WLIX, Lansing and Jackson, Michigan, Director of News. Next to John is Charles Kotcher, Chief Engineer at WXYZ, Detroit, ABC owned and operated. Ray Smith, next to Charlie, is Manager of Engineering, WKYZ, Cleveland; and at the end of the line we have Charles Meyer, Supervisor of ENG at WBBM-TV, Chicago, CBS owned and operated.
