  10. Almost three years later, has any other station built a set similar in design to the one KDKA currently has?
  11. Not sure if this is the proper sub-forum for this: For on-location, what purpose do color covers on cameras serve? For example, blue covers on cameras at the rink for figure skating at the Olympics to match the blue surrounding the rink, green covers on cameras at Wimbledon, etc. Why have on-air personalities started wearing two ear pieces instead of one ear piece?
  12. Which CBS Television City studios do Celebrity Family Feud and syndicated Family Feud tape in?
  13. CBS has named current KMAX and KOVR general manager Jay Howell as the new vice president and general manager at Pittsburgh's KDKA-TV.
