I was part of a three-person team that produced 35 videos as part of WEEI's coverage of the 2019 Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. Under the direction of Entercom Boston's Video Operations Manager Peter Neudel, I manned the control room's live production switcher to capture/record interviews with professional athletes, local celebrities, and inspiring patients over the course of the two-day telethon.
In total, I spent about 27 hours switching between our studio's three cameras and making sure that we were properly livestreaming each segment to WEEI's 220,000 Facebook followers. I also shot some B-roll footage of Fenway Park for our recap video, which now has over 36,000 views:
Not to sound cliché, but working the Radio-Telethon was easily one of the most challenging yet rewarding experiences of my career. The 2019 event raised over $3.52 million for the Jimmy Fund, and it's nice to think that my livestreams may have had some impact on making that happen. I'm so grateful to Peter and the rest of the Entercom staff for letting me work on this incredible event!
