Everyone owes it to themselves to "take a tour" of a PBS broadcast facility, television or radio, offices, whatever.
Then take a tour of the biggest commercial station in the area, again, television or radio.
If you had a choice, where to work, it'd be the PBS joint, every time - based on the high quality of the MODERN equipment, rather than the "dumps" that pass as commercial broadcast facilities.
One place I strolled into, had a 'live, on-the-air' DJ working from a desk in a cubical... literally walked right up to her, and started asking her a question, before I saw a tiny sign, "Shhh, On-the-Air" sign on the edge of her desk.
By contrast, the PBS station has beautiful sound proof broadcast booths, behind the glass sits the broadcast engineer & call screener - facilities I've -never- seen in a Commercial radio or television station. The ONLY thing that looks decent in a Commercial station -those places is what actually appears "over the air" - the rest looks like a high-school science project gone awry. Even the desks are made of out cheap wafer-board, "unfinished from the back side, stuff".
One place, a television station, I got buzzed in a side door, walked through an area which doubled as trash sorting, boiler room, lockers, etc., basement stuff, and immediately upon walking through a doorway, to my right was the entire evening news "set" with a green screen on the right side (weather area?). As I rounded the corner, I almost tripped over one of the evening news casters who was sitting on the floor, outside the station manager's office. Literally the basement of a converted house.... the news studio! That's a Commercial studio!
Those commercial stations LOVE the old engineers. The new kids out of college have never had to keep that old broadcast crap running, much less ever seen it before.
Unfortunately, WE'VE been PAYING for that wonderful PBS building & broadcast facilities for decades!
