Spotlight Feature: How Does Eric Do That?
I have gotten a number of emails about how Eric can be in Cleveland, then back in Akron so quickly between shows. No, we don't own a Star Trek transporter (though I suspect our engineers are secretly working on that).
Eric added that I should share that he and Mark Nolan carpool. (Mark is always located in Cleveland and does weather for both newscasts.)
Truth be known, we are cheating this week...Eric is really here in the WKYC Digital Broadcast Center.
You see him anchor on Channel 3 at 6 PM, then walk over the chromakey to anchor the Akron Canton show at 6:30. Remember, the newsroom is in Akron which is where Eric normal anchors from. But the control room operations are always handled here in Cleveland.
Then at the end of the 6:30 show, Eric walks back over to the Channel 3 set and joins Romona for the 7 PM show. Ah, the power of TV!
