Ted,
Just a small correction to Bill Naeder's post about Vinny Rea. After leaving the construction shop, Vinny began working for WCBS TV Maintenance. Upon Joe Nessi's departure to TX, Vinny assumed the supervisor position of the shop. He remained the supervisor until shortly before he became ill. Vinny stayed up to date with all the current technology, and one of his last accomplishments was transitioning WCBS to non linear editing and server play back to air. He will be missed by all that knew him. His legacy lives on everywhere you look in the WCBS facility.
