WSMI Confronts Challenges of Crewing at Annual NAB Lunch

On Tuesday, April 9, more than 40 women took time away from a busy NAB show floor for SVG’s Women’s Sports Media Initiative annual networking lunch.  The lunch featured a panel discussion on the challenges of crewing. As technology in the trucks continues to evolve, traditional positions must do the same.  When crewing an event, what skill sets are most important? What are the biggest challenges? And how can networks find talent and grow the next generation of technicians?

Moderated by Christina Mixon, Founder, Mixon Digital; the panel featured Mary Ellen Carlyle, SVP and GM, Dome Productions;
Robert Carzoli, President and CEO, Program Productions; and Lynn King, Executive Director, Field Operations, Fox Sports.
