WUSF News Director Scott Finn and WFAE News Director Greg Collard reflect on their coverage of the national conventions:
"This is the best thing we've ever done."
That was the judgment not of a GM or PD. This came from a hard-bitten engineer who's been working at the station since the Nixon Administration...and does not usually hand out compliments.
He's talking about our coverage of the national convention.
At WUSF in Tampa and WFAE in Charlotte, we knew we’d have to really up our game during these conventions. WUSF temporarily tripled the size of its newsroom, from 9 to 27. It added a daily hour-long talk show in the morning AND a half-hour magazine show called "The Convention Today" at night.
