Torey Malatia: The art of the TV news b-roll (video)

March 9, 2011

UPDATE: We've just learned that the WBEZ portion of the story has been scrapped! More at 11!

WBEZ General Manager and CEO Torey Malatia was interviewed at our Navy Pier studios by NBC Nightly News. They are putting together a story about NPR and possible CPB funding cuts. After the interview, the cameraman brought Torey into the City Room for b-roll. We documented (and coached) Torey through it, helping him walk confidently, but also keeping it casual. Here's to hoping that my coaching will make a better news package for the 5:30pm cast. You're welcome, NBC.
